Tautavel is a small town in the southern French department of Pyrénées-Orientales that's been a place of big and important archeological excavations beginning in the middle of the 20th Century. The Tautavel Museum of Prehistory was founded to house, study and display these critical discoveries. Most important of all is a landmark collection of human remains discovered in 1971. These remains form the world famous "Man of Tautavel" who would have lived 450,000 years ago. Exploring the galleries of the museum we discover for ourselves the results of the painstaking archaeological excavations in this region, providing a fascinating insight into the lives of our ancestors from prehistory.
