Nature Live Online: The Artistic Cannibals of the British Isles
The Magdalenians lived across Europe during the end of the last glaciar period, 23,000 to 12,000 years before present.
From Portugal to Poland, they also reached the British Islands, crossing from mainland Europe in a time when low sea-levels meant the isles and the continent were connected by land. Their cave pictures and stone and bone engravings tell scientists the stories of these people, including that they might have eaten one another. Join scientists Silvia Bello and science communicator Cristina Torrente to find out more about these cultures and their artistic and culinary practices.
