The Caves Of Lascaux

The Caves Of Lascaux

The site takes you on a journey of over 17,000 ancient paintings inside a cave in Southwestern France. Discovered in 1940 by four teenagers whilst on a hike, the caves were initially opened up to the public. But, when scientists realized that the carbon dioxide emitted by humans was harming the works of art, they had to shut down the caves. However, now thanks to this website we can tour the caves and feel like we are actually there.
