HOMAGE TO JACQUES BOUCHER DE PERTHES

We remember his commitment to the study of lithic sculptures "antidiluviennes", then called "stone figures". Other 19th and 20h centuries researchers,Â Â of whom we publish some sculptures of lower and middle Paleolithic, were: E. Harroy, A. Thieullen, W.M. Newton, J. Dharvent, Ph. Helena, A. Juritzky, W. Matthes.
