Parietal Art | Emergence of Cognitive Personhood in the Paleolithic
El Castillo Cave, located in Cantabria, Spain, is known as the oldest cave art site in the world. It was discovered in and has since been found to contain parietal art and sequences spanning the Lower Paleolithic to the Bronze Age. Lack of organic dating material, including lack of organic pigments, means that carbon dating could not be used in determining its age. Instead it has undergone Uranium series dating via the calcite in minuscule stalactites that have formed over its parietal art. In this case, the oldest dates were found over hand motif stencils and disk-sized red ochre dots— two forms of symbolic expression that appear ubiquitously in the history of human cave art, regardless of geographic location, and which I have discussed in posts here, here , and here. The U-series dating, completed by Pike et al.

European cave paintings are older than previously thought, raising the possibility that Neanderthals rather than Homo sapiens were the earliest painters.

The art, considered evidence of sophisticated symbolic thinking, has traditionally been attributed to modern humans, who reached Europe about 40, years ago. Traditional methods of dating cave paintings, however, are relatively clumsy.
