In the south of France located near the commune of Vallon-Pont-d’Arc, one of the most monumental human discoveries was made by accident. Air coming up from a small gap in the cliffs that surround this area suggested there were caves buried deep beneath large rocks that had fell in front many years ago.
When investigators went to check it out, they found to their amazement intricate and immensely detailed cave paintings and artwork. To their further astonishment the date of the paintings through carbon dating would be established as being roughly 32,000 years old… this Chauvet cave became one of the oldest discoveries by a long shot!
