Local Cave Art

On Monday, April 7, 2014 at 6 pm,  Dr. Jan Simek, president emeritus of the University of Tennessee system, will speak on the Cumberland Plateau cave art, located from the Kentucky line down into Northern Alabama. Dr. Simek has documented, through carbon dating, art from between 500 and 6000 years.

The 6,000-year-old cave art, discovered by Simek and his team, revealed clues as to what Native American life in the South may have been like at the time. Many drawings depicted humans with pointed tools alongside wild dogs, serpents and other beasts. Other drawings of celestial designs allude to a spiritual understanding of the universe.
