Ancient cave art was born, we used to believe, around 30,000 years ago, from the spirit and from the hands of our direct ancestor-humans: Homo sapiens sapiens. But in Touraine, France, a recent discovery could shake that belief. Deep in an obscure cave, La Roche Cotard, prehistorians have identified surprising engravings. To what age do these very singular drawings belong? Are they ancient works of our direct ancestors? Or could they have been crafted by a more ancient human variant: Homo sapiens neanderthalensis? These mysterious drawings may revamp what we thought we knew about the origins of art.
