  • Lascaux Cave in France --read first opening page of Rainbow book of art Discovered in 1940 Petroglyphs – cut into rock
  • Chauvet Cave History: The cave was discovered in 1994, and was authenticated as a Historic Monument on October 13, 1995.  On Feb 14, 1997, the state became the owner of the cave, having in court come to the agreement of paying $87,5 million francs to the three finders.  Authentication was based more on observation.  Researchers looked at the engraved lines.  When a line is newly engraved, the interior cut is clear, white, and after thousands of years upon the wall of a cave, the interior has become covered in micro-crystals.  For a modern artist to re-create such images, the individual would have to be a master of animal representation, and of prehistoric art and those animals of the era.  The floors were also a contingent—the floors were completely covered with animal skulls, and bones.  The cave dates back 31,000 years ago, disproving the theories of Leroi-Gourhan.  For protection against unwanted visitors or vandals, the cave is now fortified through permanent audio and video surveillance, and those who are allowed to enter must follow strict procedures including a special suit and shoes set that have not been in contact with the exterior of the cave.  Within the cave, a system of climatological and biochemical surveillance has been installed to regulate the hygrometry and temperature within the cave, including the bacteriology and growth of concretions.     Research: Through analysis, researches have found that to maintain the delicate environment within the cave, humans may only be within the cave for up to 8 hours, for 15 days.  The maximum amount of persons to enter should be 12.  Bearing this in mind, researchers conduct two studies a year, lasting for 15 days.  Geologists and floor specialist are allowed two additional weeklong studies.  Only half of the team enters on any given interval, equaling 8/9 persons per day for roughly 6-7 hours.
