Caption: Stone Age (Magdalenian) bone disc. These objects, decorated with figures of animals, were carvings made on thin discs of bones, often cut from shoulder blades. This specimen was found in the Mas d'Azil cave in the Ariege region of the French Pyrenees. It dates from the time of the Magdalenian culture, known for their carved bone, antler and ivory artefacts. The Magdalenian people, a culture of early modern humans, lived in western Europe from 15,000 to 7000 years ago, during the Upper Paleolithic period.
