forensics, sociology and aesthetics, Spivey leads an extraordinary
video expedition that spans 100,000 years and five continents: from
the vast galleries of prehistoric art in the caves of Altamira and
Lascaux, to astonishing Native-American and African rock paintings, to
the treasures of Ancient Egypt and Classical Greece, right up to the
pop culture and advertising imagery that bombards us in the digital
