Research Team

The scientific team, studying the wall art and archeology of Chauvet-Pont d'Arc Cave, is made up of thirty researchers from various laboratories. 

The researchers act at different levels depending on the nature of their involvement:

  • members of the multidisciplinary team (archaeologists, cave art specialists, palaeontologists, geologists, geomorphologues, geochemists), fully engaged in the research during the two annual field campaigns;
  • specialists ocassionally involved in specific analyses based on research issues (physicists on datings, ethologists, art historians, ethnologists, artists, etc.);
  • foreign researchers and members of international committees in the framework of scientific knowledge and exchange.
