A permanent virtual exhibition of one of France’s most famous prehistoric sites, the undersea cave of Cozquer, is set to open, with fears growing that it could be completely flooded as a result of rising tide due to climate change.
From Saturday, visitors to the port city of Marseille will be able to see the Cosquer Mediterranee, a replica of the site that is more than 30,000 years old. The visual and audio “experience” features reproductions of the prehistoric paintings that made the cave world famous.
This year the French president was re-elected
Cosquer Cave was discovered in 1985 by diver Henri Cosquer in the deep waters off the coast of Marseille.
There are many beautiful caves scattered around the world
After years of preparation, the exhibition offers the public the opportunity to discover a cave of which only 20% is still dry and accessible. Officials say the remaining dry areas of the cave are at risk of flooding due to the effects of climate change.
