Thank you Tripscholars ,
This is an excellent reply and I will definitely take note of your reccomendations on my future trip to the Dordogne.
I was planning to go this year specifically to Les Elyzies to see Font de gaume , the Prehistory Museum and Les Combarelles but in the end I decided to go to Asturias in Spain. This was mainly to see three of the cave paintings there : Peña de Candamo , Tito Bustillo, El Pindal , to see wildlife like bears and wolves and also just to take in the natural surroundings.
While I was there I actually met completely by accident one of the guys who discovered Tito Bustillo , Ruperto Alvarez Romero. He was at the museum of Pena de Candamo and I had a pretty long conversation with him which was totally awesome.
It was incredible to talk to someone who had made such a huge archeological discovery , like talking to the discoverer of Tutankhamun’s tomb , but an archeological site thousands and thousands years older than Ancient Egypt. I’ll always remember that.
Having said that , the caves of the Dordogne are definitely high priority on my bucket list for next year or the year afterwards as I really want to see the paintings of the rhinos , lions and mammoths (El Pindal has a mammoth painting but from the photographs of the French Caves it is nowhere near as intricate as those in Roufignaac etc. ).
