Carrying on in our study of cave dwellers, I completed a new chalk drawing for our next lesson.
Since we started with Altamira and Lascaux, and since this is a region I am more familiar with, I decided to stay in the area for the time. We are looking into some of the caves of the Mediterranean. It was really a wonderful thing to study, because I was able to use my own photos and books that I had acquired while travelling. The first hand aspect brought things to life in an amazing way.
We focused on the island of Menorca, with its caves, Necropoli, Talyots and other stone structures that show how early peoples there lived. I remember one place even where there were water drainage areas, which were essentially round depressions in the earth, which were used to collect and filter water, pretty state of the art for 2000 BCE.
