Imagine going for a hike and you come across a cave decorated to the max with rock art dating back to the last Ice Age some 30,000 years ago. Wanna know where these awesome sites are? Here are 8 of the best.
Rock art is an important aspect in archaeology, it provides researchers with an artistic glimpse into the past, a visual of what they saw, the animals that were alive, and some of the traditions they stuck by.
Altamira Cave, Spain
San rock art, Southern Africa
The Cave of Hands (Cueva de las manos), Argentina
Laas Gaal, Somalia
Gabarnmung Rock Shelter (Dreamtime Cave), Australia
Rouffignac Cave, France
Chauvet Cave, France (I should try to stay objective with these, but this one is my favourite)
PS: I don’t own these images.
