Were Neanderthals Original Cave Painting Artists?

Danny Vendramini (CC)

In his novel Entangled, Graham Hancock spun a tale suggesting that Neanderthals were way more creative than the violent homo sapiens who wiped them out. New research suggests that Hancock may have been right, reported by James Noble Wilford in the New York Times:

Stone Age artists were painting red disks, handprints, clublike symbols and geometric patterns on European cave walls long before previously thought, in some cases more than 40,000 years ago, scientists reported on Thursday, after completing more reliable dating tests that raised a possibility that Neanderthals were the artists.

A more likely situation, the researchers said, is that the art — 50 samples from 11 caves in northwestern Spain — was created by anatomically modern humans fairly soon after their arrival in Europe.

The findings seem to put an exclamation point to a run of recent discoveries: direct evidence from fossils that Homo sapiens populations were living in England 41,500 to 44,200 years ago and in Italy 43,000 to 45,000 years ago, and that they were making flutes in German caves about 42,000 years ago.

Graham Hancock: My Recent Book ‘Entangled’

I’m best known for my big non-fiction investigations of historical mysteries but I’m trying a new path as a novelist to celebrate my 60s and I’m grateful for any support my readers are willing to give me. My first novel, Entangled, explores big, cutting edge ideas about time-travel, out-of-body and near-death experiences, consciousness, pre-history, the battle of good and evil, and the mystery of reality but does so in the form of fast-moving tale of fantasy and adventure. Very few of my non-fiction readers have yet taken a look at this novel but at less than $1 for this week only why not give it a go? itunesnook kindle Here are the links again: iTunes | B&N Nook | Kindle Here’s a synopsis and some background information on the science behind Entangled, and a video trailer below. I hope you enjoy the book, —Graham

America’s Most Mysterious Monument: Enter The Georgia Guidestones

Temple of Rosy Cross

The Temple of the Rose Cross, 1618.

[Site editor’s note: This article below by Graham Hancock was first published in the newly available Disinformation title The Georgia Guidestones: America’s Most Mysterious Monument.]

Not all ancient monuments are mysterious and not all mysterious monuments are ancient.

The Georgia Guidestones are decidedly not ancient—until 1980 there was nothing on top of that bare hill outside of Elberton, Georgia—yet there is much that is extremely mysterious about them.

Raymond Wiley and KT Prime do a first-class job in this little book of telling what is known about the stones, and what is not, revealing and exploring their mysteries one by one. They always keeps their feet on the ground and avoid extravagant or fanciful explanations when a simpler one will do. This only makes it all the more mysterious, after the ground has been so thoroughly raked over, that we still to this day do not know the true identity of the man calling himself R.… Read the rest
