Archeological museum of Val Cenis Sollières Sardières

Val Cenis Sollières' museum of archaeology

The first farmers and cattle breeders of the Neolithic settled in the Balmes cave above Val Cenis Sollières Sardières in the Vanoise range some 5 600 years ago. The museum presents the collection of the daily life artefacts of these first moutains dwellers.

The site is a reference in alpine archeology because it is the oldest evidence of agriculture known to date in the Western Alps. The objects and handicrafts exhibited in the museum plunge the visitor into the everyday life of these mountain dwellers who maintained relationships with their community that went far beyond mere sustenance.
