Altamira Cave the Sistine Chapel the Stone Age

Spanish nobleman called Don Marcelino de Sautuola lived in the late 1800s. He liked to search clues to the lives of people who lived thousands of years ago. Don Marcelino knew that prehistoric homes had been found in caves nearby. He also knew of a cave called Altamira close to his farm. He began to visit the cave and dig through the deep soil on the cave floor. Over the centuries, this soil had piled up, raising the floor and making the cave dark and narrow. Don Marcelino finally succeeded in finding some ancient spearheads. He brought them home to show his family and friends. And his young daughter, Maria, asked him to take her with him the next time. It was hard to refuse her anything and he agreed. 9-year-old Maria promised not to disturb her father at his work. In the cave the girl couldn’t find anything that was fun to do. After a time, with a candle in her hand, she crept into the low passage. Soon the little corridor grew wider. Looking up at the ceiling, Maria stopped still. All around her there seemed to be animals.
“Father!” Maria cried. “Bulls! Bulls!”
