More ancient cave art has been discovered by archeologists in Italy, more than 100 years after the first drawings were discovered in 1905. Known as the Paleolithic art in the Ramnelli Cave is described in the December issue of the Antiquity journal. Archeologists use that journal to report seeing new images of a bird, a bovid(hoofed mammal), and geometric designs.
Raffaele Sardella of the Sapienza led a team of archaeologists, geologists, and paleontologists to take a systematic survey of the cave. It’s located on Italy’s southeast coast and just seven meters above the Adriatic Sea. Its location made it difficult to explore in the past but now there are better ways to explore.
The cave was initially discovered in 1874, but with accessibility being difficult, it was not properly investigated for decades. The first cave art discovery was made in 1905. The cave itself is divided into two parts, a collapsed main chamber, and an inner chamber. The main chamber has massive boulders that have fallen from the ceiling.
