Cliffs and steep slopes made of dolomite are clearly visible on the right bank of Meuse River at Yvoir (Province of Namur), in South Belgium. This rocky area, named "Rochers de Néviaux," is sliced by woody ravines called "Bois des Rochers." Natural caves found in the dolomitic cliffs, including the Princess Cave (Aurignacian Period - 20,000-35,000 years ago), were likely used as a prehistoric refuge for Cro-Magnons. Both neolithic and mesolithic artifacts have been discovered here. Photo taken on July 2, 2006.
