Glimpses of our ice age ancestors’ lost world

Chauvet CaveTuesday, October 9, 7:30 pm, Room 159, Fraser Building, University of Victoria — In the deep past lie the answers to who we are and from where we came. Thirty-five thousand years ago, ice age hunters created striking works of art portraying the natural world around them. Emanu-El congregant & writer, Sid Tafler will share insights and images on Tuesday, October 9 at 7:30 pm in Room 159, Fraser Building, University of Victoria, from the legacy of a long-lost world when our ancestor depicted these animals deep inside the darkest places on earth. This was a time when exotic animals like lions, rhinos and mammoths roamed the European continent along with two species of humanity—Homo sapiens and Homo neanderthalensis.

This event is part of a series presented by the Victoria Natural History Society. Everyone is welcome and admission is free.
