SynopsisIn 1969, the archaeologist Dr W. E. Wendt discovered in the South of Namibia the oldest dated art of Africa: six palm-size fragmented plates from the cradle of humanity and human art. For a long time, art works like these had been known only in Europe. The groundbreaking discovery of Dr Wendt gave the African continent a cultural find of equal value and importance.
On the way to the excavation place of this 28,000 year old "bushmen art" some more archaeological places of discovery are inspected, which reveal details about the history of this old art and its creators. The film re-explores the tracks of the 1969 expedition and shows a formadible collection of rock art sites and the impressive landscape of dunes and rocks.
