Thought part of what makes you human was an artistic capacity? Well, the project leader for this expedition is pretty sure these were drawn by an individual of a species called homo neanderthalensis (maybe you've heard of it), around 10,000 years before the formerly oldest known. This is actually kind of a big deal, because, as the article says:
We thought art history was exclusive to evolved humans, that our sensibility was "an intimate part of ourselves, the sapiens, because we think we are the thinkers." This discovery, if confirmed with further testing, proves this sapiens-centric idea wrong.
You should all go check it out and probably resist the urge to debate whether or not it's "art," though I know it's tempting.
