Archaeologists in north-east France have unveiled an exciting breakthrough in our understanding of the Neolithic era. At the Marais de Saint-Gond site, the discovery of a permanent settlement has filled a crucial gap in the historical puzzle, shedding light on social organization 150 years after the first flints were found.
This revelation complements previous findings of large flint mines, underground chambers, megalithic covered alleys, and more. Remi Martineau from France’s National Centre for Scientific Research hails it as unparalleled in Europe. The meticulously structured village, revealed during the excavation of a palisade ditch, hints at the foundations of our ancient society.
