Caption: Rock engraving of reindeer. Artwork of a prehistoric engraving found on a piece of schist rock. It is thought to be from the Abri de Laugerie Bas, a rock shelter on the right bank of the river Vezere, France. This area was occupied by the Magdalenian people who lived there from 11,000 to 17,000 years ago during the Upper Paleolithic Period, also known as the Reindeer period. Reindeer, wild horses and bison were in plentiful supply. The ample supply of food allowed the development of high-quality art. Artwork from The Origin of Civilisation and the Primitive Condition of Man (Sir John Lubbock, 1870).
