Berniche accompanied me from Les Eyzies where he had arrived the same morning from Les Combarelles some two kilometers to the east of Les Eyzies. It was his father who sold the cavern of Les Combarelles to the French Government for a national monu ment after paleolithic engravings had been discovered on its walls. Berniche had to his credit a wide experience in cave exploration, having been employed in that capacity for more than twenty years. For the last four years he had worked for Dr Lalanne at the famous rock shelter of Laussel; he was in fact the lucky workman who uncovered the remarkable bas relief of the female holding a bison horn.
