About the Author

Genevieve von Petzinger

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. The unique database she built holds more than 5,000 signs from almost 400 sites across Europe. Her work has been featured in popular science magazines such as New Scientist and the European edition of Science Illustrated. 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.
