Scientists have discovered in the Spanish cave of Ardales drawings left by Neanderthals between 45 and 65 thousand years ago. Chemical analysis showed that the cave art in Spain was of man-made origin, and archaic people brought ocher from outside the monument. Apparently, karst formations played a symbolic role among some groups of Neanderthals.
Paleogeneticists analyzed sediment samples from the Georgian cave of Satsurbia and found ancient DNA fragments of a wolf, a bison, as well as a person who lived about 25 thousand years ago. The woman whose DNA was studied belonged to a completely unknown human population.
