Society – Economy - Environment


Visit an exhibition on how the human brain behaves, putting Prehistory into perspective...

Based on themes common to Prehistory and to the present day, address questions relating to the environment, the economy, mobility, death, life in society, art, human thought.

Whatever period you look at, the distinction that sets us apart from all other species is culture:  how we consume, produce, live together, attempt to answer our existential questions, etc. 

A wide-ranging summary of Prehistory, one of the most fascinating periods of all time. 

An opportunity to realise that Wallonia is a land marked by Prehistory, and Belgium a pioneer in prehistoric archaeology. A chance to discover more about Philippe Charles Schmerling, the Liège doctor and archaeologist who was the first to apply scientific method to the question of “antediluvian humans” in 1829.
