Summary

Created by our ancestors around 35-10,000 years ago, at a time when Europe lay in the grip of an Ice Age, cave art provides one of the most direct connections possible with our distant past. The truly astonishing feature of rock art is that, preserved by the constant temperature of their environment, these drawings and paintings have remained intact and in situ for millennia. Our tour takes you into these rugged mountain landscapes, where we delve into the artistic minds of our distant European ancestors. Dr Bahn has devoted his career to the study of rock art and will provide unique insights into this distant past. His PhD dissertation was on the prehistory of the French Pyrenees.

Tour highlights:

  • Visit the key sites of prehistoric cave art of the area such as Niaux, Mas d’Azil and Gargas
  • Stand in the exact spot where artists who created these early masterpieces of art once stood
  • Get insights into the creation of cave art and the life of the people who created it
  • Enjoy a tour led by our expert in rock art and the archaeology of the last Ice Age, Dr Paul Bahn
