Paleolithic “Art Studio” Found in South Africa

Archaeologists in South Africa have uncovered what they term an “art studio” dating to 100,000 years ago. Scientists in 2008 discovered a series of mixed ochre stored in abalone shells (used as a mixing or storage palate) in Blombos Cave. The findings were published in this month’s Science.
