Sealed and forgotten from prehistory to the dawn of the 20th century and then alternatively an animal pen, a wartime shelter, a playground for children, and a museum, the Hypogeum has yet to yield its secrets.

Much of the origins and function of this collective burial ground, a repository of spiral ochre wall paintings, clay sculptures, and skeletons, is shrouded in mystery, fertile ground for suggestive stories.

Amongst these were tales of missing skeletons, lost children and hominids inhabiting the lower levels of the site.

Discover these mysterious stories in a special curatorial tour taking place on Wednesday 7th December at 16:00 hrs.
