“Memory of Spain” is a documentary series that presents the entire course of Spanish history, from the earliest times to the present day.
“From Altamira to Metal Tools” is the second program in this series. Marcelino Sanz de Satuola’s discovery of the Altamira cave has altered dramatically the popular view of prehistory. Contrary to what everybody believed until then, Palaeolithic people had expressed their concerns through beauty, creation and art. Altamira questions scientific dogmas.
