Although Lavardin is a small French village, it has a long and grand history that stretches back into pre-history.

Archeological Digs have unearthed axes, arrowheads, tools and other artifacts. The fields around Lavardin are rich with flint. There are also many natural caves on its cliffs for shelter. This combination of resources made it a good place for Neolithic man to live.
