Cave Art PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Cave Art free pdf The decorated Ice Age caves are some of mankind's greatest artistic achievements, and there is no substitute for seeing the caves themselves. There you can see the art - paintings, engravings, bas-reliefs or drawings - in its original, natural setting, and stand where the artists did 30,000-10,000 years ago. For speleologists and holidaymakers alike - indeed anyone who wants to add a visit to a cave to their itinerary - here is an essential handbook. The first guide to all the decorated Ice Age caves in Europe that are open to the public, Cave Art covers more than 50 caves in England, France, Spain, Portugal and Italy, as well as relevant museums and centres. This second edition has been fully revised and includes three additional caves and four new facsimiles.
