Discovery of a horse engraving from Bruniquel, France


Article created on Saturday, December 22, 2012


There are many examples of Palaeolithic portable engravings that have been discovered, long after their excavation, among the collections stored in museums.

For example, a remarkable pair of bear figures was spotted in the mid-1980s on a rib fragment housed with the bone industry from the Magdalenian cave of Isturitz in the western Pyrenees; the rib came from a level excavated by the St Périers in 1931 (Esparza & Mujika 2003).

It is far rarer, however, for a new engraving to be found among faunal material curated within a palaeontological collection.

In the article publish in Antiquity 285 (2011) the researchers report on the discovery of a horse engraving in the collection of the Palaeontology Department of the Natural History Museum (NHM), London, some 140 years after the excavation and acquisition of the specimen.

The new engraving was found among the horse remains from the Late Magdalenian site of Roc du Courbet, Bruniquel, France.
