Synopsis: Join renowned archaeologist Genevieve von Petzinger on an Indiana Jones-worthy adventure from the open-air rock art sites of northern Portugal to the dark depths of a remote cave in Spain. Von Petzinger looks past the beautiful horses, powerful bison, graceful ibex, and faceless humans in the ancient paintings. Instead, she's obsessed with the abstract geometric images that accompany them, the terse symbols that appear more often than any other kinds of figures-- signs that have never really been studied or explained until now. The First Signs starts to crack the code on the first form of graphic communication.

About the Author: Genevieve von Petzinger is a rising star in the study of rock art from the Ice Age in Europe-- the only researcher in the world focusing specifically on connections between the abstract signs from this time period. She was selected as a 2011 TED Global Fellow, a TED 2013-15 Senior Fellow, and she will speak at the 2015 TED Fellows retreat.
