  • Description

    Working with local archaeologists, young enthusiasts have made new finds in the Vienne Department, France.

    A burial ground at Savigne, dating back to the Meroving Franks of the Dark Ages yielded stone sarcophagi containing human skeletons. In the nearby Chaffaud caves - where some of the earliest drawings on bone were discovered - prehistoric artifacts, many thousand of years older than the Meroving remains, were also unearthed.

    Appropriately, the latest finds were exhibited in a church that is itself of historic importance, the Romanesque church of Civray, built in the 12th, century.
