The Consulate General of France in Houston and the Alliance Française invite you to a "café des sciences" about "The technical and artistic knowledge of the upper Paleolithic men, " on Saturday, the 3rd of December, at 6 p.m. at the Alliance Française of Houston.

A team of French archeologists (Carole Fritz, Gilles Tosello, Marc Azema and Genevieve Pinçon) will introduce you to two outstanding sites : the Chauvet Cave and the Roc-aux-Sorciers site.

The Chauvet-Pont-d’Arc Cave is a cave in the Ardèche department of southern France that contains the earliest known cave paintings, as well as other evidence of Upper Paleolithic life.

The Roc-aux-Sorciers is an Upper Paleolithic rock shelter site dating to the mid-Magdalenian cultural stage, circa 14000 years BP, made famous by its relief wall carvings.
