What on earth is meant HERE by years "ago". Why not unambiguously "BC"?. Moreover, the chronologies differ from one wiki to the other!

Wait till you get a load of the even more puzzling "BP" (calibrated to 1950-01-01). Nevertheless, these are acceptable and even preferred formats, on Wikipedia and elsewhere (see WP:ERA). Consistency is preferred within an article, but I think even then editors may defer to source style since it can be tricky to accurately convert from one format to another. Also, indiscriminate changing from one style to another is discouraged. Richigi (talk) 06:28, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

Replica in Germany[edit]

I read somewhere that the MAN replica was built by German technicians that had already built another for some German university. --Error 23:40, 16 October 2005 (UTC)

Correct: For the "Deutsches Museum" at Munich. (talk) 06:12, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Where is the replica in Japan? AxelBoldt 17:11, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

Removed text re: painters[edit]

Removed the following text: "Several painters were influenced by the Altamira cave paintings. Picasso is often quoted as having declared "after Altamira, all is decadence"; however, no source exists for this quote and there is no record of his ever visiting Altamira or any prehistoric cave.[1]"

The first sentence is unsupported. The reference for the second, Picasso-related sentence is an article specifically written to debunk same. Since it's debunked, I found its inclusion in the article confusing. Richigi (talk) 05:57, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

clean up[edit]

Hi! SuggestBot got me here. I neutralized a bit - removed the Sistine Chapel quote, which i did just recently at the Lascaux article. It struck me again during my research tour, when i created the Deer Cave article about a month ago. Such slogans don't serve WP.Wikirictor (talk) 00:24, 30 December 2016 (UTC)
