Washington Post covers mold at Lascaux

less than 1 minute read

Molly Moore of the Washington Post turns in a nice report on the problems facing Lascaux, about which I wrote earlier this year:

"Microbiologists and geologists say we have to observe and understand what's happening first, that we can't disturb the cave. They don't agree with the treatment," [Marie-Anne] Sire said. "Other groups say the risk is too big to watch and take no action."

According to the article, Lascaux II, the reproduction cave for tourists, is also facing trouble: the works are fading.
