article description
Finger flutings were lines drawn with fingers and hands in caves during the Upper Paleolithic (10-40,000 B.P.). They contain a wealth of forensic evidence about who created cave art. This study examined 12 caves in Northern Spain. Findings included new sites, presence of children, and new knowledge on social interaction.
