Link: Cave people made paint 100,000 years ago

This is a really cool article, handed to me by my friend Dario Ciriello, an expert in paint himself. In a cave in South Africa they have found evidence of a paint-making workshop from 100,000 years ago! It appears that pretty advanced humanlike cognition was happening far earlier than science has previously hypothesized. Very cool stuff.


  1. I read about this in Science News a few weeks ago. As a science nerd and an artist, I was very excited.

  2. Yes, it's really fun to think about. Thanks for the comment!
