THE PREHISTORY OF HOMO SAPIENS
How did Homo Sapiens live? What are the major upheavals that changed the way of life of humans? Humans took a long time to tame their environment, learn to make tools, master fire, make shelters or clothes.
THE NEOLITHIC AGE
Having lived nomadically as hunter-gatherers, humans of the Neolithic Age quickly became attached to their homes, starting to farm and raise cattle. They built villages and turned to cattle-rearing and agriculture, in order to ensure the survival of themselves and their families.
Owing to their know-how in using iron, the Gauls were excellent farmers, inventive architects, accomplished smiths and energetic merchants.
The Gallo-Roman civilization, as its name suggests, represents the encounter between two worlds, which will give rise to a dynamic and refined culture, affecting all areas of everyday life.
THE EARLY MIDDLE AGES
During the Early Middle Ages, the Germanic, Oriental, Celtic and Graeco-Roman cultures fuse into a single religion. In this context of fusion, Christianity brings about a restructuring of urban space, even though most of the population live in the country.
