The Saintponiens (5900 BP) have left the caves in a large number of relics: bones tools, polished stone, pottery. On the Haut-Languedoc mountains, they built menhir-statues, engraved steles, mysterious and always visible. Some of them are presented and staged in the museum in an original sound and light show.
