Dr. Catherine Louboutin

Catherine Louboutin, General Curator of Heritage, led a career until 2019 that she began at the MAN (French National Archaeological Museum) for nearly 20 years as the head of Neolithic and Bronze Age collections, and then as the deputy director responsible for scientific policy. In the meantime, she devoted about ten years to the restructuring of the Grand-Pressigny museum in Indre-et-Loire, and then to leading the network of regional museums within the Ministry of Culture. In parallel, she carried out significant research activity, particularly on Neolithic sites, and has more than fifty scientific publications or works intended for the general public, such as ‘Au Néolithique, les premiers paysans du monde’ (Gallimard 2006), translated into German, Chinese, Italian, Japanese, and Dutch. Deeply committed to the official bodies of archaeology, she has, for nearly 20 years, trained many students at the École du Louvre who are now active in the world of archaeology.
