The museum aims to be a place where you can find out about the prehistory of the Vercors, about the main stages of the human occupation of the plateau, always at the mercy of changes in climate, and about the different ways of life, from the hunter-gather period to that of farmers and pastoralists.
Watch, handle and learn The permanent exhibition, ‘The human conquest of the Vercors’, presents the relationship between humans and a mountain area through six thematic areas. These combine presentation panels and objects displayed in glass cases. The whole way along you’ll be invited to handle prehistoric objects and view films on the making of fire and flint knapping. An illustrated timeline will help you see where you’ve reached and how this point relates to other times in prehistory.
