At the heart of Prehistory
New fossilised bones are uncovered every year in the caves of Andenne, but the most important are undisputedly those of the Neanderthal child of Scladina.
Head off to see these remarkable remains, Belgium’s most spectacular anthropological discovery of the 20th century, and take part in an extraordinary scientific adventure alongside researchers!
The exhibition floor focusing on Scladina Cave presents itself as a vast laboratory, where all researchers are active. Each area is staged with a spatial atmosphere that evokes the work of these scientists. The different "offices" are centered around the reconstruction of the Neanderthal Scladina Child.
Through this scenography, the aim is to highlight the multidisciplinary approach of researchers (archaeologists, geologists, palaeoanthropologists, palaeontologists, physicists, and chemists) who have worked for 40 years at the Scladina Project.
