Divers have discovered prehistoric paintings that may be among the best preserved in Europe in a grotto accessible only by an underwater passage. The cavern, near the southern port of Marseilles, is filled with well-preserved paintings of deer, horses, seals and bison as well as imprints of human hands. Scientists said it is as important a find as the caves of Lascaux in southwestern France, until now considered the best-preserved prehistoric frescoes in Europe.
