The site of the Azé Caves has yielded evidence of Man and animal presence, from the Early Paleolithic to the Middle Ages. Azé 1-1 is one of the oldest prehistoric site in Burgundy. Several places inside the Prehistoric Cave and the Galerie des Aiglons yielded fauna remains from the Middle Pleistocene to the Upper Pleistocene. Bear is particularly well represented among numerous other species. Outside the caves, a Mousterian site has been discovered and an important Gravettian site has been excavated. Source
