European Archaeology Section Research at the Penn Museum

The current project follows the previous excavation at the site by a local amateur in the mid-1900s.

Pech de l'Azé IV is an archaeological site in the Périgord region of southern France. It dates to the time of the Neanderthals and contains occupational debris from many millennia of Neanderthal intermittent use of the cave. This sequence of occupation begins perhaps about 80,000 to 90,000 years ago, and ends about 35,000 years ago.
