Archaeologists have discovered America's oldest cave and rock art that has remained hidden for more than 6,000 years.

The faded images were found in Tennessee's Cumberland Plateau and are believed part of the most widespread collection of such art ever found in the U.S.

Some of the pictures were drawn using shallow lines made with a pointed tool and these show events such as hunting, or depict animals that the Native Americans would have lived with and eaten.

Other images are more elaborate, depicting mythical creatures and representing the Native's spiritual beliefs.


Seriously can't be possible ... didn't Jesus create the Dinosaurs 4000 years ago?

Then again ... this is Tennessee so anything is seriously possible.

"Archaeologists have determined that Tennessee was first occupied by the Indians during the last Ice Age around 15,000 years ago."
