Christine Desdemaines-Hugon
Apr 24 - May 2, 2014; Sep 18 - 26, 2014
Christine Desdemaines-Hugon has worked with the scientific community, lectured on prehistoric art, and shared her knowledge and enthusiasm for the Dordogne region of France with visitors for the past 25 years. Her first visits to the caves of the Dordogne sparked an insatiable passion for the subject of Paleolithic art and she returned to the University of Bordeaux to continue her studies, resulting in a Diploma of Advanced Studies in Anthropology. Recently, Christine completed a book about the five major cave sites in the Dordogne and the evolution of Paleolithic cultures.
