Prehistoric Paintings

CHANNEL 4

British and Colombian archaeologists have discovered a large display of ancient rock art. It’s on cliff faces in the Colombian Amazon rainforest. The drawings were probably created 12,500 years ago. They provide further proof that the rainforest’s earliest inhabitants lived alongside Ice Age animals. The archaeologists made this discovery in 2019. But they kept it secret until now, ahead of the rock art’s debut in an upcoming documentary.
