Long considered to be primitive beings, today Neanderthals are recognized as full-fl edged humans. The exhibition establishes a dialogue between the reality of scientific facts and the image of Neanderthals conveyed by various representations, particularly in art.
A NEANDERTHAL DAY
How did Neanderthals live? Through immersive scenography and the reconstitution of a scale 1 archaeological site, their daily life is demonstrated and interpreted for a comprehension of the major aspects of their culture and their relationship to their surroundings.
A NEANDERTHAL LIFE
The exhibition decodes Neanderthal morphology and attests to their cultural practices: funeral rites, cannibalism, or even artistic expression.
A NEANDERTHAL TIME
To what degree did Neanderthals and Homo sapiens interbreed? What caused their extinction? Audiovisual installations seek to answer these questions and present several scientific theories.
