Ancient skeleton found in cave

A 27,000-YEAR-OLD human skeleton laid out in a room decorated with ancient art was among the rare finds at a cave in western France whose subterranean art predates that of the famed Lascaux caves.

It is only the second time a human body from the upper Paleolithic period had been found placed in a cave with decorations.
