Les Eyzies, France
From September 16th to 26th
The Comité français d’Histoire de la Géologie (COFRHIGEO) will organize the 2022 INHIGEO Congress in France,
from September 16th to September 26th, 2022, in the Périgord region (southwestern France).
The main venue of the congress will be Les Eyzies-de-Tayac, a picturesque village in the Vézère Valley, otherwise known for its National Museum of Prehistory, its many prehistoric sites and decorated caves (Lascaux, Cro-Magnon, La Madeleine, Font de Gaume, Combarelles, etc.).
“The sites, objects and works of art found in the Vézère valley are extremely rare witnesses of long-lost civilizations. This material, which is infinitely valuable for the knowledge of the most remote periods of human history, is of universal interest, as exceptional from a historical as from an ethnological, anthropological or aesthetic point of view.”
