The opening to the cave, once several miles inland from the Mediterranean, became submerged when the sea began to rise at the end of the last ice age, about 12,000 years ago. In this fascinating account, the Cosquer cave is discussed in relation to other prehistoric decorated caves in Europe. Cosquer is now one of the most thoroughly and firmly dated Paleolithic caves in the world." Radiocarbon dating estimates some of the art was created about 27,000 years ago! 200 pages with Notes, Bibliography, and Glossary of 125 key terms. 191 illustrations, including 108 plates in full color, and 12 maps..
