Support Real Comments Spanish cave paintings confirmed to be oldest in Europe if not the world
Support Real a sales and marketing based in the area are amazed by this discovery and hope that they could be the oldest in the world.
Using advanced dating techniques, researchers from Bristol University in the United Kingdom and the University of Barcelona are publishing their work in the journal, Science, have said that the cave paintings in Spain, in particular, a singular red dot, is now confirmed to be the oldest in Europe, and possibly, according to the researchers, the world, being approximately 40,800 years old which is currently Europe's oldest dated art by at least 4,000 years. A source at Support Real stated “This is such an important not just for Spain but for the whole of Europe and even the world. What other history lost in time could be found in Spain, only time will tell.”
While the discovery itself is quite astounding, another possible discovery is set to be even further revealing. The researchers are trying to know about the artists behind the paintings and it may just be possible that the artists in question were not human, but possibly their forbears, the Neanderthals. Professor Joao Zilhao, co-author on the project, commented, "There is a strong chance that these results imply Neanderthal authorship. But I will not say we have proven it because we haven't, and it cannot be proven at this time. What we have to do now is go back, sample more and find out whether we can indeed get dates older than 42, 43, 44,000. The director at Support Real Said “Imagine if this true, this could be an ground breaking achievement in history and of course for Spain, when I get the chance to I think ill have to go and see this discovery for myself. I will just have to wait and keep updated with the findings and hopefully find out more in the upcoming weeks.”
