“It is almost a cliche for archaeologists to remind their readers that people of the Stone Age had skulls and brains the same size as ours; but, symptomatic of the progressive age, many persist in believing our ancient ancestors were howling savages teetering several steps down the ladder of social development from us–except when occasional finds like the Ice Man or the exquisite 30,000-year-old French cave paintings of Cosquer and Chauvet remind us of the sophistication of our forebears.”
