Schemel Forum Course - Paleolitic Cave Painting in Europe - The Origin of Human Consciousness

Thursday, 24 October, 2019

In week one we will briefly review the climate and geology of Paleolithic Europe, the history of human artistic expression, who painted the caves and how the modern discoveries were made. In weeks 2 to 5 we will emphasize the caves of Altamira, Tuc d'Albert and Trois Freres, Lascaux and Chauvet which will be reviewed and contrasted and the art work presented. Additional cave discoveries and unique artistic discoveries will be included if possible. The last week will be a discussion of "Why" this art was created, what it might have meant to its creators and what it still means to us. 

Harmar Brereton, M.D.

Thursdays, September 26 and October 3, 10, 17, 24, 31
