  • magdalenianStone Age Masters: The Magdalenian Masters tells the story of the Magdalenians – ancestors that settled in large areas of Europe between 18,000 and 10,000 years B.C. Their art was amazingly developed. The sculpted bas-relief of the Roc-aux-Sorciers site in southwestern France is proof that a golden age of prehistory did actually exist. This film reveals the Lascaux cave, a showcase that suggests that the Stone Age may well have had its share of “Michelangelos.”
