Who was able to penetrate 300 meters deep into a cave in the Aveyron Gorge to build structures composed of more than 400 broken stalagmites? At what time? And above all, why? Since the discovery of the cave in 1990, this amazing architecture has never revealed its secrets.
Who was able to penetrate 300 meters deep into a cave in the Aveyron Gorge to build structures composed of more than 400 broken stalagmites? At what time? And above all, why? Since the discovery of the cave in 1990 by a young caver from Tarn-et-Garonne, this amazing architecture has never revealed its secrets.
In 2014, a team of researchers decided to go back, hoping to finally solve the enigma of the Bruniquel cave. For 4 years, we followed them in their investigation. We went where no camera had yet been able to enter, where no visitor will ever be allowed to enter.
We accompanied these explorers of science in the meanders of their research. At their side, we witnessed one of the most important archaeological discoveries of our time.
And Neanderthal man is the hero.
