Antonin Morlet (At far left, November 1927)


French physician and amateur archaeologist. After reading the January 1925 issue of the Bulletin de la Société d'Émulation du Bourbonnais which mentioned archaeological finds at the hamlet of Morlet, he visited the site on 26 April, offering 200 francs to be allowed to complete the excavation. Morlet began his excavations on 24 May 1925, discovering tablets, idols, bone and flint tools and engraved stones. Morlet identified the site as Neolithic in a report entitled Nouvelle Station Néolithique published in September 1925, with Émile Fradin (who made the initial discovery) listed as co-author.
