Lecture - "Yuzhniy Oleniy Ostrov, isle of mystery: a necropolis of the late Mesolithic in Karelia (Russia)"
Monday 6 February 2023, at 6 pm, Musée d’Anthropologie Préhistorique
In 1936, Soviet archaeologist V.I. Ravdonikas made a surprising discovery: at least 177 people were buried on an island in Lake Onega, along with thousands of objects. The scientist quickly concluded that the site was in fact a burial ground dating from the Neolithic period, and housed a multitude of discoveries that he interpreted as depicting an inegalitarian society. Years later, the site was dated. The people entombed at Yuzhniy Oleniy Ostrov lived in the Mesolithic period, and their unique rites suggested an unusual symbolic universe, which I invite you to explore with me in this lecture. Thanks to on-going excavations at the site, we will take a journey to visit the last communities of hunter-gatherers in northern Europe. Societies that were intimately connected to the forest and lake environments they inhabited and the animals they hunted there. The funereal story of the last Mesolithic people of central Russia is a gateway to exploring the link between them, their environment, and the teeming wildlife - particularly beavers and elk - that went with them to their graves. A way of passing "from one world to another, from the visible to the invisible!"

Event - "Roller Station"
From Friday 2 December 2022 to Sunday 26 February 2023, Port Hercule de Monaco
In line with the measures adopted by the Prince's Government to encourage energy saving, including the removal of the ice skating rink, the Municipal Council is keen to propose an alternative solution to keep the young and the not-so-young amused this winter. The Roller Station will take up residence at the Stade Nautique Rainier III, in the location usually occupied by the swimming pool, and will replace the ice rink! For those without their own equipment, roller skates will be available for visitors.
