This excavation site, still active an open to the public, is one of the Prehistoric locations in Belgium.

Tens of thousands of years ago, this cave was a passing place for Neandertals. The Sclandina child, a skeleton from that era, remains the most important anthropological discovery of the 20th century in the country.
