Technique to directly date prehistoric rock paintings in southern Africa

Scientists have pioneered a technique to directly date prehistoric rock paintings in southern Africa, which reveals dates much older than previously thought. In a study published in the international journal Antiquity , Professor David Pearce, Director of the Rock Art Research Institute at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, Adelphine Bonneau of Laval University, Canada, and colleagues at the University of Oxford showed that paintings in south-eastern Botswana are at least years old, whilst paintings in Lesotho and the Eastern Cape Drakensberg, South Africa, date as far back as years. The findings represent a major breakthrough in archaeological research. These dates open the floodgates for researchers to ask and answer questions about the rock art that have baffled them for decades.

Technique to directly date prehistoric rock paintings in southern Africa

The Prehistoric Period—or when there was human life before records documented human activity—roughly dates from 2. From the invention of tools made for hunting to advances in food production and agriculture to early examples of art and religion, this enormous time span—ending roughly 3, years ago dates vary upon region —was a period of great transformation. Early human ancestors painting a bison inside a cave during the Paleolithic Age. During this era, early humans shared the planet with a number of now-extinct hominin relatives, including Neanderthals and Denisovans.
Prehistory , also known as pre-literary history , [1] is the period of human history between the use of the first stone tools by hominins c. The use of symbols, marks, and images appears very early among humans, but the earliest known writing systems appeared c. In some human cultures, writing systems were not used until the nineteenth century and, in a few, not even until the present. The end of prehistory therefore came at very different dates in different places, and the term is less often used in discussing societies where prehistory ended relatively recently. Sumer in Mesopotamia , the Indus valley civilization , and ancient Egypt were the first civilizations to develop their own scripts and to keep historical records; this took place already during the early Bronze Age.
