Forty Years in the Andes

40 ans dans les Andes. L’itinéraire oublié de Théodore Ber (Forty Years in the Andes: The Lost Itinerary of Théodore Ber), an installation now on view at the Musée Champollion de Figeac, highlights the life and exploits of one of the first Andean archaeologists. The important collection Ber assembled in the nineteenth century  –  now divided between the Musée du Quai Branly, the Musée de l'Homme, and the Musée d'Archéologie National de Saint-Germain-en-Laye  –  has been partially reuinted for this special exhibition.
