About the event
Guillaume Porraz is an archaeologist and prehistorian at the CNRS (National Centre for Scientific Research). He specializes in the technical know-how associated with the creation and use of stone tools. Through his work, he explores the processes of adaptation and innovation that have been part of the history of hunter-gatherer societies since their origins, and he conducts excavations in the South-East of France and Southern Africa in partnership with a variety of universities and cultural institutions.
