Anne-Solange Arjeau, Head of Collections, welcomed Charlotte Baqué-de-Sariac, Daniel Goncalves, Valentin Segonds, Arnaud Thomas, all four supported by Tom Martin. They came to work in these reserves to study the vertebrate fossils collected by Pierre Vetter. They are going to edit a 5-minute video to present the paleoenvironment of the Carboniferous, a warm basin in which the place was bathed, a long time ago, from which Decazeville was to be born.
