Britain's oldest artwork may depict mammoths from a drowned land


Aug 26, 2020

Britain’s oldest artwork has been unearthed on the Channel Island of Jersey, showing what appear to be Ice Age scenes of mammoths in ancient lands now drowned by the sea.

The drawings are thought to be at least 15,000 years old At that time, a vast land bridge — now known as Doggerland — connected the British Isles to the European continent.

The drawings appear to show mammoths, a bovid animal like a bison or an ox, and a horse — all prey animals for human hunters at the time — as well as abstract patterns. Many of them are overlaid on top of one another.
