Sahle-Work Zewde | The Interview
In this episode, Izzy Wisher (Durham University) shares details of her PhD work studying European cave art dated to the Palaeolithic. How can scientists and archaeologists understand better the reasons for why ancient humans created visual culture? What is it about caves that preserves cave art so well? Who in these Palaeolithic societies was producing this art and how did they do so? How is Izzy using interesting approaches borrowed from psychology, and running experiments with virtual reality (VR) technologies, to look at these questions?
