Stone Age artefact, Magdalenian culture. Carving inscribed on one end of a prehistoric object, possibly a spatula or a device known as a bull-roarer. The latter was swung through the air to make a roaring sound, and was thought to have been used in fertility rites. This specimen was found in the El Pendo cave, Camargo, Cantabria, Spain. 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.
