It is during the second half of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century that flint tools carved on the site of Saint-Acheul were unearthed: the bifaces. This technique of particular size bears today the name of Acheuléen, in reference to the district of Saint-Acheul, giving it a worldwide fame. The Saint-Acheul Archaeological Garden, which was built to showcase one of the oldest examples of our heritage, is an invitation to stroll along natural trails accompanied by interpretive signage that takes you back in time to more than 450,000 years ago. Classified as a Historic Monument since 1947 and open to the public since 1998, the Saint-Acheul site illustrates the history of the discovery of Prehistory and its worldwide recognition by the scientific community.
