Françoise Claustre, Bélesta et son musée de Préhistoire dans les Pyrénées-Orientales

A Bélesta, non loin d'Ille-sur-Tet dans les Pyrénées-Orientales, Françoise Claustre a été à l'initiative de la création d'un musée de Préhistoire qui présente des collections rares de poteries intactes, datées de plus de 6500 ans, trouvées dans une tombe, des objets quotidiens des premiers paysans néolithiques du Roussillon découverts dans la grotte de Bélesta. La muséographie est attrayante, contemporaine, ludique, esthétique, pédagogique, parfaitement intégrée dans le vieux château médiéval avec des reconstitutions et des dioramas.

Iceman Was a Medical Mess

Iceman Was a Medical Mess | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

Few of our ancestors have been so thoroughly poked and prodded as Neolithic Tyrolean Iceman "Ötzi," discovered melting out of an Alpine glacier in 1991. Researchers have probed his stomach and bowels for traces of his last meal and analyzed his teeth for cavities. Now, an international team has sequenced his entire genome, and it turns out Ötzi still has some surprises in store.
