¿Las primeras pinturas neandertales? --> Entrevistamos a Marcos García, autor del estudio. La datación de más de 50 pinturas usando la técnica de las series del Uranio -en lugar de la más habitual del Carbono14-, publicada en Science esta semana, desvela que algunas de las pinturas de la cueva de El Castillo -en el norte de España- tienen casi 41.000 años. En conjunto, estas dataciones obligan a replantear lo que sabíamos del arte paleolítico -sería, al menos, 5.000 años más antiguo de lo que se pensaba- y apoya la especulación sobre si podrían atribuirse Homo neanderthalensis.
