Near Montignac, France, a collection of prehistoric cave paintings
were discovered by four teenagers who stumbled upon the ancient artwork after following their dog down a narrow entrance into a
cavern. The 15,000- to 17,000-year-old paintings, consisting mostly
of animal representations, are among the finest examples of art
from the
Upper Paleolithic period.

A prehistoric projectile point and another prehistoric object known as a plummet were discovered in the stomach of a 13-foot, 5-inch Mississippi alligator.

(FoxNews) – A Mississippi wildlife processor made a startling
discovery when he found that an
alligator was carrying around
a 6,000-year-old
artifact (above) in its stomach.

Shane Smith, a processor and owner of Red Antler Processing,
took a look at the 13-foot alligator’s stomach after hearing
about a processor in South Carolina who discovered unusual
items in another gator. What he found blew him away: an
arrowhead and a plummet.

Smith first thought that the alligator could have eaten an arrow
that someone shot at it, but the plummet helped him realize that
it was likely something just laying around that the gator ate u. A Mississippi state geologist examined a photo of the arrowhead
and determined it was between 5,000 and 6,000 years old.
