Owner description: The Museum of Prehistory in Solutré contains exhibits from one of the richest sites in Europe. Solutré was a hunting site for ever 25 000 years. Man of the Upper Palaeolithic (35 000 – 10 000 BC) trapped, killed and dismembered thousands of horses and reindeers, so leaving layers of bones. This accumulation of bones gave rise to a famous legend, which we know to be untrue, that the horses were driven over the cliff by their hunters.
