The two archaeologists reopened the excavations begun by Lucien Rousseau.

In this image, taken in September 1948, they are moving a sculpted stone block depicting a bison hoof that had fallen from the ceiling of the Taillebourg Cave. The block is currently in the collections of the National Archaeology museum at Saint-Germain-en-Laye.
