LONDON: Archaeologists, in a geological course in Cambridgeshire have excavated a Neolithic rock art piece. The University institute for Continuing Education had organized this course on the weekend.
Cambridge University has confirmed the excavation and said that the art piece is very different from the other art pieces, which had been discovered earlier. They have said that this discovery may belong to the Neolithic era in the time period of 2500BC.
The new finding will able the archaeologists to receive more information about the cultures and civilizations before 4,500 years. It may give information about the decorative methods of Picasso.
"The big question in the case of the Over stone is whether we should actually be calling it meaningful art, or if it amounted to no more than Neolithic doodling. Either way it's a great find”, said Dr. Chris Evans, the Director of the Cambridge Archaeological Unit.
The art piece has a portion of sandstone and on its surface; two pairs of concentric circles are also included. Specialists are still not very sure about the marks on the piece.
The experts have linked this new finding with Neolithic art, as they have already found some remains of the late Neolithic period in this area.
