Even a Caveman. . . .

AFP: Prehistoric man went to the movies, say researchers: "Prehistoric man enjoyed a primitive version of cinema, according to Austrian and British researchers, who are currently seeking to recreate these ancient visual displays.

Rock engravings from the Copper Age found all over Europe in remote, hidden locations, indicate the artwork was more than mere images, researchers from Cambridge University and Sankt Poelten's university of applied sciences (FH) in Austria believe.

'The cliff engravings... in our opinion are not just pictures but are part of an audiovisual performance,' Frederick Baker of Cambridge University's Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology said in a statement Tuesday."
