Earliest Known Paintings Under Study in France

The Chauvet cave in southern France is home to some of the earliest known man-made paintings, dating back some 32,000 years. A team of scientists is studying the works in order to find out more about their history. Their work will help build a reconstruction site for visitors in years to come.
