Stone Age cave art exhibition in Cambridge

by Luke Farrington

Archaeolgists in Cambridge are using the latest technology to bring some of the world's oldest cave art to life. Images of some of the 300,000 engravings at Valcamonica in the Italian Alps are on show.

An exhibition at Cambridge University is using 3D printing and interactive graphics so the carvings of Valcamonica begin to move enacting the routines of prehistoric life.

The engravings were made from as early as 7,000 BC right up to the 16th century AD.

They act as an archive of nearly 10,000 years of human history. The exhibition is on at the Museum of Archeology in Cambridge until 23rd March 2013.
