fact checking - a 5,000 year error - Lascaux

When I posted yesterday about the Reuters story of the "world's oldest painting" I was reminded by a commentor about Lascaux and the cave paintings which predated the Aleppo paintings by 5,000 years.

It seems that Thoughts Illustrated commenced a lot earlier - in the caves at Lascaux and at Altamira in Spain - 5000 years before the "world's oldest painting"

It amazes me that a person in the blogosphere would care enough to set the record straight and that I could correct the error of the Reuter's "headline" story about the world's oldest painting.
