The Abri de la Madeleine (The Magdalene shelter) is a prehistoric shelter under an overhanging cliff situated near Tursac, in the Dordogne département and the Aquitaine Région of South-Western France. The Magdalenian culture of the Upper Paleolithic is named after it, as the type site. Prehistoric finds from the site include the Bison Licking Insect Bite, a carving estimated 20,000 BC. The shelter was reoccupied during the Middle Ages. The medieval castle of Petit Marsac stands on the top of the cliff just above the shelter.
