He was a man of deep religious faith and learning. In 1904 Breuil had recognised that a pair of 13,000 year old carvings of reindeer at the British Museum were in fact one composition. He assumed a post as lecturer at the University of Fribourg in 1905, and in 1910 became professor of prehistoric ethnology in Paris and at the Collège de France from 1925.
