What is the age of cave paintings in Spanish caves



The Nerja Caves, discovered in 1959 by five boys, are known for the world's largest stalagmite, whose height reaches 32 meters. And now will be popular thanks to their rock paintings. And although the entrance to the bowels of the Earth until this time was free, now it will be closed from tourists.
This finding, according to scientists, is an "academic bomb." Because, after analyzing and finding out that the age of the drawings varies from 43.5 to 42.3 thousand years, we can conclude that these drawings belong to Neanderthals! But before this discovery, the presence of imagination and creativity was attributed only to Homo sapiens, a rational man.
In the picture, which recalls (strangely) a link in the DNA chain, the ancient artist depicted only a hunt for pinnipeds, fur seals or seals. These animals were carried in large numbers in local waters.
However, scientists caution against premature conclusions. After all, the exact dating of rock painting is not easy. But determining the age of paintings is a very important and necessary thing. It allows us to get to know our ancestors, their way of thinking, etc.
Exact data will be available no earlier than 2013. Currently, excavations are being carried out in the caves of Nerja in search of other images, and possibly the work tools of Neanderthals who disappeared 37,000 years ago. According to scientists, they died out either from changes in climatic conditions, or were replaced by more developed Homo sapiens. However, as it turned out, they were not primitive creatures that could only hunt.
