There are several Paleolithic sites at Evreux (Site I-III; Eure; Normandy), many of them curated at the Municipal Museum. Beside Handaxes of Acheulean typology (one is displayed here) several small middle Paleolithic complexes are also present: MTA and denticulated Mousterian, both with Levallois debitage. They may correspond to short occupations, probably during hunting or during the search for good quality raw material in the vicinity. At Evreux III a “Federmesser” encampement has been excavated.
