## The Discovery of the Lascaux Cave Paintings

On September 8, 1940, Marcel went on a treasure hunt. For years, people had talked about a secret underground passage in the countryside around their French village. They said that the passage led to hidden treasure. The French teenager thought he had found the passage when he discovered the opening to a long vertical shaft. Four days later, on September 12, Marcel and three of his friends returned to explore it.

This time, Marcel brought an oil lamp to light the way. One after another, the boys wriggled down the long passageway. Finally, they tumbled into a huge cavern, and Marcel held up the lamp. By its ﬂ ickering light, they noticed a high passage. The friends entered the passage, and Marcel shone the light on its walls. What the French teenagers saw amazed them.

Herds of horses, oxen, and deer stampeded across the curving cave wall.

The colorful animals seemed to leap off the walls. Excitedly, the teenagers ran through the cave and found room after room of paintings. They had found the real treasure of Lascaux.

At ﬁ rst the four teenagers promised to keep their great discovery a secret. But the secret was too hard to keep. They told their teacher, who contacted an expert. The expert said that the boys were probably the ﬁ rst modern people to lay eyes on this art. The paintings had been sealed in Lascaux Cave for at least 17,000 years.

The cave walls are covered with more than 1,500 pictures of animals.

Many of the animals include those that the early people of Lascaux hunted.

Historians believe that the people told stories about the animals and sang as the artists painted them. But these oral stories are lost forever.

## Organization

A narrative has three basic parts: the beginning, the body, and the resolution. The beginning sets the scene and starts the action. The body presents a conﬂ ict. The resolution settles the conﬂ ict and ends the story.

## Point of View

Narratives are told from a particular point of view. Point of view is the person who is telling the story. If Marcel had been telling the story of the Lascaux Cave

paintings, it would have been written, “On September 8, 1940, I went on a treasure hunt.” This is called ﬁ rst-person point of view. Instead, a person outside of the

story—a third-person—is telling the story. Will your story be told from a ﬁ rst-person or third-person point of view?
