Chantal Jègues-Wolkiewiez is an ethnologist and an astronomer who has been trying to study and find the origins of Astronomy for more than two decades.
Experts say that more than 35,000 years ago, the prehistoric man actually relied on Astronomy for various things, such as choosing where to live in a cave, based on the sun’s orientation, or creating tools like the lunar calendar to measure time. The walls discovered that depicted the earlier paintings of men also had illustrations of celestial bodies, like the sun and the stars in it.
The discovery of the Lascaux, this fabulous painting that is said to be around 18,000 years old, and was found in the Périgueux region in Europe, seems to have sparked intestests among those studying Astronomy.
The historians have its own interpretation of what these paintings represente, but Chantal Jègues-Wolkiewiez is now presenting a different view. She claims that the painting represented the sky, as seen by an astronomer who lived in that period.
Go deeper, explore and watch how she is able to substiate her claims.
