BEFORE the look on the right, before the thousands of apartments, before the trains, before the Russians,

there was CEMENELUM.  This ancient city  is located on the outskirts of the ancient city of Cemenelum (Cimiez), between the amphitheatre and the three thermes from the third century.


was located at the northern part of Nice – and high up topographically speaking for protection.

Before that, it was  inhabited some 400,000 years ago  in the prehistoric site of Terra Amata.

Hard to put that in perspective, but yes, this is true.

See mother earth  link below……..  These are some photos we took in and around the archeological site in Nice…….

if you click on the pics, they’ll enlarge or they’ll start a slide show.  Still learning WORDPRESS, forgive me for not having this “perfect” for you.  I’m trying………
