Prehistoric Europeans: People Who Invented Art 1 of 4
(copied from Youtube)
Around 40.000 years ago, Prehistoric Europeans became the first culture and humans in the world to invent Art... Painting, sculpture, music... The development of these entirely new concepts had one of the most profound influence on the further intellectual evolution of our ancestors.
The oldest works of prehistoric art in the world, dating to around 40.000 years back in time, were found in the Schwäbische Alb, Germany. The Venus of Hohle Fels. And the figurine of a mammoth discovered in the Vogelherd cave Germany. Further artworks include cave paintings, in France and Spain. And the very first musical instrument ever found - a flute.
As more and more of prehistoric Europeans had contact with people of other cultures, it has allowed the spread of such concepts to other places.
