  • Discovered by chance in 1852 by a quarry worker from Aurignac,the prehistoric rock shelter of Aurignac contained skeletons and the teeth of large mammals. It was the paleontologist Édouard Lartet who uncovered a large quantity of archeological material from 1860 onwards: worked flints, reindeer antler worked by Man, the remains of a hearth, bones of extinct animals such as mammoths, woolly rhinos, huge cave bears… Belonging to the Départemental Council, this museum-cum-forum bears witness to this presence and to the first materials culture of modern Man, between -38 000 and -28 000 before our era. Dating from prehistory to the present, Aurignac possesses an extraordinary heritage. Do explore the narrow lanes of the village, the ruins of the Counts’ castle and the magnificent view from the keep.
