Pech IV

Pech de l'Azé IV

A four-year project to re-excavate the site ended in the summer of 2003. Since then we have been working on finishing the analysis of the material and the dating of the site. Several paper have been published including a summary paper on Level 8 which contains abundant evidence for Neandertal use of fire.

In addition to this web site which mostly chronicles our excavations, there is an additional Pech IV web site expressly for students and non-archaeologists with video clips and background information on archaeological methods.
