Tropical Cave Art: Older than European Art

Here's a short documentary form Nature Video about the discovery of cave paintings in Indonesia that "may change what we know about art."

That's because these paintings date back more than 39,000 years ago, which could make then older than the earliest cave paintings in Europe.

Ken has a post about them below but I thought students might enjoy this five minute documentary explaining the significance of the finding. You can also see more great photos of the paintings at World Mic
