Stone Age Jottings (Cave Writing)
Archaeologists and anthropologists have found prehistoric, Stone Age cave dwellings all around the world, many up to 25,000 years old. Each is unique and show the living conditions of the people native to that area, including artifacts and artwork. They have discovered as well that much of the artwork in these caves is similar, and the symbols used in them are almost universal. Today’s infographic from New Scientist shows what these common symbols are and where they have been found. It makes you wonder if this is a prehistoric form of writing and communication, or a hefty coincidence.
