On the edge of the village of Les Eyzies in the Dordogne, southwest France and only just above the flood plain of the Vezere River, are a line of rock shelters, of which Laugerie Basse and Laugerie Haute are very important. Laugerie Basse, mainly dug in the 19th century, has a later Magdalenian sequence and very numerous small art objects. Laugerie Haute provided a long sequence with Magdalenian and Solutrian underlain by the latest stages of the Aurignacian and Peri-gordian sequences. A number of radiocarbon dates are available, in the range c20,000-16,000 be for Solutrian and Initial Magdalenian levels at Laugerie Haute.
