Quantum physicists shining new light on cave art

Wednesday, 15 May 2019

Leslie Van Gelder, a well-known American-born archeologist has been working with Dr Harald Schwefel, and other physicists at Otago University to develop a lamp that mimics the flickering torch light that paleolithic cave artists worked by many thousands of years ago.
