The smudged red disk below the hand stencils is the oldest cave art yet dated, at 40,800 years old. Located in El Castillo cave in the Cantabria region of northern Spain, this image might have been created by Neanderthals. Possibly the final nail in the coffin of the “unintelligent Neanderthals” myth: they may have been the first to paint in caves. Currently Europe’s oldest-dated art, by at least 4,000 years, said Alistair Pike, of the Univ. of Bristol, who led the research. photo PedroSaura.

It was immediately confiscated by Secretary of War Edwin Stanton (1814-1869) and was hidden away for 87 years until it was discovered in the Illinois State Historical Library in 1952, by then 15-year-old Ronald Rietveld, who was researching the papers of Lincoln’s personal secretaries."
