The western edges of the Massif Central and the northern slopes of the Pyrenees are noted for an exceptional concentration of Palaeolithic caves. In fact, there are no fewer than one hundred and thirty sanctuaries, the most renowned of which is Lascaux.

Located on the left bank of the river Vézère, Lascaux is set a little apart from the traditional prehistoric sites further downstream, between Moustier and Bugue.

The excellent state of conservation of our prehistoric heritage is due to the numerous rock-shelters and natural caves in limestone, which dot the landscape.

On Thursday, September 12 1940...
The floor formed a succession of terraced basins, full of water.

The uncertain light of their lamp barely pierced the darkness, and it wasn't till they reached the first narrowing of the passage, at the entrance to a keyhole shaped gallery ( The Painted Gallery), that the four teenagers made out the first paintings on the walls.

Their names were :
Marcel Ravidat, Jacques Marsal, Georges Agnel et Simon Coencas.

The work carried out at Lascaux shortly after the Second World War made access to the cave easier.

At that time, the entrance was considerably enlarged and the floors lowered to enable the constant flow of tourists (almost 1,200 people per day) to circulate more easily.

But, in 1955 the first indications of deterioration of the paintings appeared.
A thorough study found that the cause was an excess of carbon dioxide in the air brought about by the visitors' breath.
This gas acidified the water vapour being breathed out and, as it condensed on the walls this corroded the rock face as well as the .

A system was then put in place to monitor the production of carbon dioxide. Nevertheless, a few years later, green patches developing rapidly on the walls indicated the presence of green algae and mosses.

Research showed that this deterioration was caused by the intensive development of this site. The Ministry of Cultural Affairs, headed by André Malraux, had the cave closed on April 20 1963.
