Northernmost Ice Age art found in U.K.
trefwoorden: Engeland - 10.000 BCE - rotskunst
An unknown, goat-like creature roamed Britain in the Late Pleistocene, about 12,000 years ago.
The animal, a male caprid, possibly an ibex, is depicted in ancient carvings thought to be the first example of Ice Age art ever discovered in Britain.
Measuring 57.2 cm (22.5 inches) in length and 40.4 cm (16 inches) in height, the animal is represented in semi-twisted perspective: both horns are depicted, but only one of the rest of the paired elements legs — ears and eyes — is drawn.
