Chancelade

 

a commune in southwestern France, where in 1888, during excavations of a rock-shelter near the city of Périgueux, investigators found a human skeleton from the Upper Paleolithic period, along with implements and primitive art objects of the Magdalenian culture. Anthropologically, the person from Chancelade was a variant of Upper Paleolithic man of Western Europe, who lived 12,000 to 15,000 years ago.
