Event details

What was life like in the Ice Age 15,000 years ago? Why did ancient hunter-gatherers make art so long ago? How was it made and what was it used for? Join us for a photographic exhibition of some of the best examples of Palaeolithic art curated in Britain, including examples of engravings, personal adornment, possible children's toys and embellished hunting equipment. Meet the exhibition’s creator Dr Andy Needham, of the University of York’s Department of Archaeology, to find out more about Palaeolithic art and the Ice Age.
