5,000 cave paintings found in Mexico

Published on May 28th, 2013 | by Admin



Archaeologists working in Mexico have found 4,926 well-preserved cave paintings at 11 sights in the north-eastern region of Burgos.

The area in which they were found was previously thought not to have been inhabited by ancient cultures.

Experts have not yet been able to date the paintings, but hope to chemically analyse their paint to find out their approximate age.
