Anthropologists have uncovered a 38,000-year-old engraved image in a rock shelter in France - a finding that marks some of the earliest known graphic imagery in Western Eurasia. The findings provide a rare insight into the early modern humans' Aurignacian culture, which existed from approximately 43,000 to 33,000 years ago. The limestone slab is engraved with an image of aurochs, or extinct wild cow, and was discovered at Abri Blanchard in France's Vézère Valley. A key feature of Aurignacian culture is the use of core and blade technology and much of our understand about their culture comes from the artefacts they left behind.
