25,000-year-old cave paintings found in Spain

25,000-year-old cave paintings depicting horses and human hands have been found in a cave in Northern Spain.

The red paintings, found by chance by archaeologists looking for signs of ancient settlements, were made around the same time as the Altamira Cave paintings — some of the world’s best prehistoric paintings discovered in northern Spain in 1879.

“It was a chance finding,” archaeologist Diego Garate told Reuters.

“Although they were difficult to spot because they are badly deteriorated, our experienced eye helped us to identify them.”
