Abstract The discovery of the Altamira caves in the 19th century radically altered the popular perception of early human life on the planet. This program explores the world of the Paleolithic and Mesolithic peoples who called the Iberian Peninsula home. Images of artifacts, paintings, and archaeological sites reveal how the ancients of unrecorded history progressed from Stone Age to Bronze Age and from hunting/gathering to agriculture. In addition, re-creations of life in prehistoric times show how modern humans' ancestors worked-and expressed their artistic natures.
