Discovery News: Cave Art Shows Prehistoric Southern Living

Discovery News featured the work of Jan Simek, president emeritus and a distinguished professor of science in the Department of Anthropology, which is published in this month’s edition of Antiquity. Simek’s research finds that the oldest and most widespread collection of prehistoric cave and rock art in the United States has been found in and around Tennessee. The art provides intriguing clues about what life was like for Native American societies more than 6,000 years ago.
