2. Where in the world are we?

This map of Europe gives one a good look at the two major French caves.Find
Lascaux, Chauvet, and Cosquer; we will be looking inside all of these caves. We will explore
the cave at Altamira in a later section

 

This next,smaller map gets you a bit closer and is of the cave, itself. Think about
just how large this cave is.

 

This map of the cave is well enough labeled for you to follow it as we walk
through parts of it. It is huge, with amazing pictures of the
animals that lived in this area of the world 30,000 years ago. I think it’s possible that climate

in this part of the world?

 

It is now time to explore the cave and pay homage to the photographer s.
