Some of the oldest roots in the world have emerged as an advanced knowledge of old stars of old people.
Not just pictures of wild animals in the art works, at sites throughout Europe, as expected. Instead, the animal symbols represent star disputes in the night's spear, and are used for the production of diary and signal events such as comet strikes, and analyzes; praised.
They appear that, as far back as 40,000 years ago, people have been able to do so. Keep track of time using knowledge of how the setting of the stars slowly changes over thousands of years.
The findings suggest that older people understood that there was an impact on them; A gradual move on the Earth's rotational axis. Find out about the old Greeks to get out of this truth, called a rotation of the equinoxes.
Around the time that Neanderthals were extinct, and perhaps before the person settled in western Europe, people could define dates within 250 years, the look out.
The findings show that the reulological scenes of older people were far larger than they were; previously believed. Their knowledge may have a helpful way to navigate the open seas, influencing our understanding of prehistoric human migration.
Researchers from the Universities of Edinburgh and Kent carried out a detailed study of Palaeolithic and Neolithic art with animal symbols at sites in Turkey, Spain, France and Germany.
They found all sites that used the same methodology based on excellent rhetoric, although thousands of years were split into time.
Researchers analyzed earlier results from a survey of stone carvings at one of these sites – Gobekli Tepe in Turkey today – which is defined in memory of a disastrous comet that strikes around 11,000 BC. It was thought that the strike started a little job called the time of Dryas Young.
They also left the most unusual artwork most likely – the Lascaux Showpoint in France. The work, which shows a person who is in a position; die and several animals, mark another comet marker around 15,200 BC, and the recommendations of researchers.
The team confirms their conclusions by comparing the ages of many examples of the document; Cave art – known by replacing the pieces used – with the star positions of the star's long-awaited star designs.
The oldest image in the world, also found the Lion at Hohlenstein-Stadel Cave, from 38,000 BC, is also available to respond to this old-time system.

Dr Martin Sweatman, the University of Edinburgh's Engineering School, directed the study: "The early art of the cave shows that people have a well-known knowledge of the night's nocturne in the ice Finally, of course, almost not all today.
"These conclusions support the theory of many cometive effects over the development of people, and maybe they will evolve as prehistoric figures can be seen."
