Prehistory: The Investigation

This acclaimed exhibition from the Toulouse Natural History Museum in France is currently on display at the Origins Centre. The exhibition is part of the French Season in South Africa 2012/13. It is an exhibition with a difference. Inspired by a prehistoric murder, visitors act as crime scene detectives and equipped with archaeological tools from five investigation fields, they can try to solve the 7 400 year old mystery of how these two people died and came to be buried together. Was it a ritual murder? Or a crime?
