In 1940, four teenage boys stumbled upon an important discovery in Lascaux, France. Exploring in the woods, they discovered a large hole in the ground and excitedly dug to investigate. They continued to explore the cave until they discovered a dark, cavernous room. The walls were covered with paintings of animals-found later to be created by Stone Age people who lived 17,000 years earlier. Archaeologists began to raise many questions, some of which are still unanswered. Photographs, a map, and illustrations support the text.
