OF MANKIND

This large Prehistoric park covers 600,000 years of the history of mankind.
Learn about the actions and techniques of our prehistoric ancestors in workshops led by passionate enthusiasts.
The recreated dwellings and simulations of daily life prove that Man and Nature have interacted constantly since the dawn of time.

At Samara, archaeology springs to life. Forget all you thought you knew and have fun learning new things, children can help the blacksmith and the potter, try throwing a javelin, learn how to make fire, cut flints, etc...

The adventure goes on

NATURE AND ARCHAEOLOGY

Continue your adventure at the Bistrot de César which serves Roman and Gallic food. The chef bases his dishes on the historic recipes of Apicius, a great gastronome who regaled the Roman emperors. You can try 'cervoise', a type of barley beer enjoyed by the Gauls.
You can explore the marshland of the Somme valley as Samara is also a nature reserve: plant species, old peat diggings. There's even a mystical element created by ex-votos emerging from the waters.

"Travel back in time through more than 600,000 years of man's history. From the Palaeolithic period to the time of the Gauls, visitors can immerse themselves totally in daily life. Ours is a constant search for historical accuracy. So every recreation, every organised activity, every event is based on scientific studies. We leave nothing to chance."
