Archaeologists find ancient 'cave art' in the Dordogne

Jessica Cooney, an archaeologist from Cambridge University, talks about paintings found in a cave "nursery" in France.

One of the pieces of art, discovered in the cave of Rouffignac in the Dordogne, is thought to be a 13,000-year-old finger painting created by two and three-year-olds.

Jessica Cooney, speaking to the BBC's David Sillito, explains that the most prolific artist is thought to be a five-year-old girl.
