Thus this list of the earliest art by our ancestors like Homo erectus, Homo heidelbergensis, Homo neanderthalensis, and Homo sapiens sapiens - should be seen merely as a snapshot of an ongoing process of discovery.Only recently (2012), we have seen the chronology of Paleolithic art and culture changed completely by Uranium/Thorium dating tests on the cave art of El Castillo and Altamira.The relationships between similar types can sometimes be shown not merely to classify, but also to explain, their development -- which is called seriation.Here is a list of the top 10 oldest works of Prehistoric art created during the Stone Age.The same inductive mechanism is applied in archaeology, geology and paleontology, by many ways.Item #: SCP-1050 Object Class: Safe Special Containment Procedures: SCP-1050-1 is to be maintained in a storage facility with interior dimensions of at least five (5) meters by five (5) meters by thirty-two (32) meters.
These are to be located and confiscated by Foundation agents.
