European Cave Artists Were Female

New evidence suggest some, if not all European Cave Paintings were made by females, and not males as previously thought.

For about as long as humans have created works of art, they’ve also left behind handprints. People began stenciling, painting, or chipping imprints of their hands onto rock walls at least 30,000 years ago.

But until recently, most scientists assumed these prehistoric handprints were male. But “even a superficial examination of published photos suggested to me that there were lots of female hands there,” said Pennsylvania State University archaeologist Dean Snow.

By measuring and analyzing the Pech Merle hand stencils, Snow found that many were indeed female.

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.
