Découvrir le Léman- Lake Léman in Prehistoric Times



Pierre Corboud

French, German, English, Nyon Roman Museum, exhibition handbook (19 p.), 1998.

Some hundred years ago a monograph, Le Léman, by François-Alphonse Forel, appeared in three successive volumes; this was the authoritative work for many decades in various areas of limnology, the study of inland waters. The aim of the exhibition Découvrir le Léman in the Musée du Léman and the Roman Museum was to celebrate the publication of this work. In the section on “Prehistory of Lake Léman” in the Roman Museum the scientific activity of F.-A. Forel as an archaeologist was compared with the evolution of scientific methods which have enabled a better knowledge to be gained of the prehistoric lakeshore villages over the last twenty years.
