The Caves with the oldest Ice Age art

 

When anatomically modern humans spread into Europe more than 40,000 years ago, they left behind the world's oldest mobile art objects in the Swabian Jura. Six cave sites and their surrounding landscape in the Ach and Lone Valleys are nominated for inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage list due to their unique finds.
