Some paintings of ancient cave paintings represent animal constellations that represent star constellations, scientists say.
New research suggests that human beings have a sophisticated knowledge of the stars that lasted 40,000 years.
They keep their time safe, when the stars gradually change their position in the night sky.
The phenomenon, considered as an equinox price, gradually changes the rotation of the Earth's axis.
His discovery was credited to ancient Greeks thousands of years later.
The cave painters looked at stars for researchers, such as comets strikes to mark important events.
"Early cave art shows that people have disclosed the night sky in the last ice rings. Intellectually, they were hardly different for us," said Dr. Martin Sweatman of the University of Edinburgh.
The colleges of Edinburgh and Kent studied the details of works of Palaeolithic and Neolithic Turkey, Spain, France and Germany.
The animal signs used chemically dyed paintings on the cave walls.
The computer software was then used to predict the position of the stars when the paintings were made.
The results showed that abstract animal representations were based on the signs of the zodiac and the constellation.
In all areas, cave painters practiced a time method according to astronomy, scientists claimed it.
Although paintings were distinguished in the course of ten thousand years.
The oldest sculpture in the world, the Hohlenstein-Stadel cave in Germany, is about 40,000 years old, is also supported by the theory of zodiac symbols.
In the Athens Journal of History, the researchers described the stone pillars of the ancient Gobekli Tepe in Turkey called "Rosetta Stone" – the key to unblocking the zodiac code.
11,000 years ago, it became a destructive meteorite of North America, which brought the Yaser Dryas event to the cold climate when it launched the ice-cold ice in the northern hemisphere.
Ancient cave paintings can originally be the stars
