Discovered in 1863, in 1869 this major site became the eponym of “Mousterian” culture, corresponding to Neanderthal man. The lower shelter, exploited as early as 1907 revealed the presence of a Neanderthal human skeleton the following year. The stratigraphy is composed of several industrial features: Typical Mousterian then Mousterian of Acheulean Tradition and Denticulate Mousterian as well as lower Perigordian and Aurignacian in the upper layers.
