The Information Age

Images and carvings on walls discovered

In Germany, in 28,000 BC, animal images and carvings were discovered on walls.  This shows that there was obviously some writing tool, used very early as people were able to carve these images.  There is no record that these were used to communicate, however, it is certainly possible that these could of lead to communication through cave paintings.
