HIS 101 and 111 Pre-History Paragraph Assignment
Estimated to be 16,000 years old, this is an image from the Lascaux Cave in Southwestern France near
the village of Montignac. Four teenage boys discovered the cave
in September 1940, and for about a decade the site was a major tourist
attraction, but the cave was closed to visitors in 1963 in an effort to preserve the fragile ecology of the cave.
It has been a real struggle for the French to preserve the
cave and its images intact. See The Cave of Lascaux. There is now an exact duplicate available for visitors. Most
of the drawings in the cave are of large animals, and most of the
drawings are arranged in comic-strip fashion, from left to right, to
tell the story of successful hunts. Photo Credit.
