Have you ever wondered how and where did paleolithic hunters use to live? Where did they come from? And what did they use to eat? These and many other questions will find answer in the exceptional location of Viote di Monte Bondone, for an unmissable event.

Sunday, 23th September 2018, starting from 11 am, MUSE and the Alpine Botanical Garden of Viote are pleased to invite you to the #IceAgeEuropeDay, the first international day dedicated to the glacial era! We will follow the signs left in the Paleolithic by the Neandertal men, our ancestor extinted years ago, and by Homo sapiens hunter-gatherers at the end of the glacial era in the high mountain of Alpine territories.

Don’t miss the funny activities for our small guests: archery, readings, flint knapping demonstrations, prehistoric tattoos and many other activities will take place in the marvelous frame of the Viote Plain. The bravest participants can taste the ancient gastronomic delicacy of a true paleolithic meal, inspired by the spontaneous products our ancestors could get in nature. A day dedicated to prehistory to spent outdoor, planned to excite and entertain the whole family, with specific focus on the “Ancient Stone” period.
Free entrance.

Visit the original excavation site of mankinds oldest hunting weapons and see how real archaeologists work. Experience the "Ice Age Warrior"; on the palaeon as he makes sharp stone blades to carve a spear for hunting. And go on a mysterious treasure hunt and solve the puzzle of the lost stone signs. Of course, your ability to deal with a spear or bow will also be put to the test.
