Geographic and Temporal Range of Cave Art
The people of the upper Paleolithic left behind many clues to how they lived and what they did. But unlike anything before them, they have left clues to why they did what they did.
The clues are in the art they left behind in caves.
Dates, Styles, and Geographic Range
Upper Paleolithic art is comprised of at least three periods, the Aurignacian, the Solutrean, and the Magdalenian.
The dates for these are now estimated at: Aurignacian 35,000-
20,000 B.C. The Solutrean 20,000- 15,000 B.C. The Magdalenian
14,000- 8,000 B.C. The ranges of these dates change as new
material is uncovered. For example one book, Primitive Art, puts
these dates around 20,000 years earlier (Fagan, 1995:136),
