Chauvet Cave

The Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc Cave in the Ardèche department of southern France is a cave that contains some of the best-preserved figurative cave paintings in the world, as well as other evidence of Upper Paleolithic life. It is located near the commune of Vallon-Pont-d'Arc on a limestone cliff above the former bed of the Ardèche River, in the Gorges de l'Ardèche.

Just watched this. It's better recorded so you can skip through several slow parts. But it's a pretty in depth look at all the paintings in Chauvet Cave. It left me with a haunting feeling, wondering what it would have been like to live as a Paleolithic man 60,000 years ago.
