Searching for Cavemen in Southwest France Part 2: Origins of Human Art

11/15
11:00 AM /CH

Our behind the scenes journey to France continues…Not only does France hold the sites of some of the most significant Neanderthal excavations and discoveries in the world, but it also holds the sites of spectacular painted caves, some dating back as much as 20,000 years.  In the summers from 1996 through 1999, Dr. Steve served as the Field Laboratory Supervisor for the Penn Museum excavations at Fontechevade Cave. Dr. Steve had the opportunity to travel to sites in the Dordogne region, including going inside the famous painted caves at Font du Gaume and Lascaux.
