Le Regourdou, Lascaux

(40+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
Le Regourdou serves as a museum, archeological dig site, and brown bear enclosure devoted to the Neanderthals who once inhabited the area. Discovered in the 1950s by property owner Roger Constant after a sinkhole formed, the site has become a treasure trove for archeologists. Here they reportedly discovered the oldest and most complete Neanderthal skeleton found in Europe, which dates back more than 90,000 years. They've also found a variety of tools and other artifacts, leading to a greater understanding of the early humans who lived here.
