The caves of Arcy-sur-Cure, in the northern Morvan (France), were dug in the limestone of the Mesozoic Era. They were used as shelters by prehistoric men and excavations, which had been done there, have permitted to discover tracks of a continuous occupation since the middle of the Quaternary Period.
