More than 40,000 years ago humans began to paint animals, mysterious symbols and even people on cave walls. For over a century, researchers have been interested in how these images were created and what they might have meant. Drawing on Dr. Nowell’s most recent work in Australia and Europe, this lecture will look at the science behind the art, and how it is leading to a new understanding of the lived lives of Ice Age peoples including children and teens.
