Today in History: Lascaux Caves Discovered

On September 12, 1940, four teenage boys looking for their dog discovered the Lascaux Caves in France which is painted with 17,000 year old paintings of hunters, animals and other scenes of prehistory. This and other fascinating facts can be found on Grolier Online from Scholastic Publishing, the online research database that BHPL has recently added to its collection. To access this and other databases, BHPL patrons may click on "Remote Databases" from the BHPL homepage, enter their library barcode and pin to get a menu of databases available for research.
