Stacks Image 29

Cave Art

These are images I used to make into cards which I sold during my student days via a fly pitch on the streets of St Albans. No doubt something one would probably not be allowed to get away with today. It was fun - I met some really interesting people who stopped by to chat and buy cards, including many archaeologists, some of whom had actually been to the places these images are from. The oldest of these images date from around 35,000 years ago. The most recent, from a mere 6000.

I also met some rather odd people who stopped to argue with me that the earth was only 3000 years old and so these images couldn't possibly be as old as I was claiming; Bible literalists I believe. Much as I enjoy a good debate, I really didn't know where to start with individuals as lost as this. Moving on.....
