Description

The destruction of the slums of old Marseille by the Nazis in 1942 was the unintended trigger for exposing much earlier Greek and Roman periods. The revelation of forgotten civilizations led to an awareness of the past and the preservation of national historic records.

The following post-war research in anthropology and archaeology in Provence has revealed some of the oldest skeletal remains in Europe. Ancient Celts and Ligures living in Entremont have left evidence of macabre cults and gruesome practices. The area in which they lived is now the beautiful city of Aix-en-Provence.

From the mysterious bories to pre-historic, underwater cave paintings archaeological research in Provence continues to the present day.
