Grades K-12.

Cave paintings have been found primarily in the countries of France, Spain, and Australia. However, they have also been found and documented in Mexico, India, Africa, Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Russia. Perhaps the most famous and most documented for art history are those in Lascaux, France. Discovered in September 1940 by a group of archeologists, the caves have since been closed to the public for preservation. Life-sized models of the more famous sections have been created for people to visit and observe.
