The Oldest Painting – level 2

20-01-2021 07:00

Scientists found a painting which they believe is the oldest animal painting in the world.

The painting was in a cave, in a valley up in the mountains of the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. It was very close to a big city, but it was not easy to get to the place.

Scientists were very lucky because there was a mineral on the painting. Thanks to it, scientists could use a special method to find out how old the painting was. They found out that it was 45,500 years old.

The painting showed a wild pig with a head, tail, and legs. There were two human hands next to it.

Difficult words: cave (a large hole in the side of a hill or a mountain), valley (a low area of land between hills or mountains), method (the way of doing something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
