Historical Note on Lascaux Caves
The Lascaux caves were discovered on $12$ September $1940$.
The walls of the caves were found to be covered in artwork from thousands of years ago.
Within the cave were found the remains of a fire.
By using radiocarbon dating on the charcoal remains of that fire, it was possible to obtain an approximate date of when the caves were occupied.
