Henri Breuil, color illustrations of Altamira Cave paintings, 1906. In: Illustrated London News, 1912.

In 1879, Marcelino Sanz de Sautuolo discovered, on his property in Altamira, Spain, drawings on the ceiling of a cave. These were the first examples of palaeolithic cave paintings ever found. The cave contains remains of the daily activities of its inhabitants who lived there between 22,000 and 14,000 before the present.

“The Trust wishes to emphasise the importance of attempting to establish where the weight of scientific agreement may be found and make that clear to audiences,” wrote the report authors.

Ho cominciato a giocare a Papers, Please.

In tre ore di gioco sono stato arrestato per inefficienza sul lavoro, ho ricevuto minacce da una setta segreta, ho fatto arrestare uno sfruttatore di prostitute, ho ricevuto tangenti, ho separato una moglie dal marito, ho fatto arrestare due contrabbandieri e ho lasciato passare un ricercato internazionale.

E sono appena all’inizio del gioco.
