Angle-sur-l'Anglin, France - June 2, 2008

Ranked as "One of the most beautiful villages in France", Angles-sur-l'Anglin is a French commune in the department of Vienne which derives its name from a tribe of Angles, which in turn, gave their name to the River Anglin. The locals are called Anglois who, like the English, take their name from an energetic Saxon tribe that invaded the area 2,000 years ago. In 1948 the Roc-aux-Sorciers, one of the most outstanding sources of Paleolithic art known, was discovered in the Anglin valley, extending its occupied history back as far as 14,000 years.
