Paleontologists have uncovered an exceptional excavation site in France, at Angeac-Charente. Each year very rare and spectacular fossil bones are discovered there. The illustrated and fun exhibition allows you to observe these large fossils recently discovered.

140 million years ago, the Charente was covered with swamps, lagoons and rivers at the bottom of which fossilized the remains of the fauna and flora of the time. The exhibition plunges into the atmosphere of a Cretaceous swamp: 3D observation of the crocodiles, turtles, fish, reptiles that lived here and the dinosaurs that populated the region. Among them was a species of sauropod dinosaur which is considered to be one of the largest in the world.

In partnership with the Angoulême museum and the Paléocharente association.
