Archery in Iran, Horse riding in Iran

Drawing recently discovered near Khomein show a person riding a horse with archery. Based on Dutch archeologists the drawings are 40,000 years old. If this turns out to be true then this would be oldest evidence of horse domestication.

  1. The cups markings are 40000 years old. An ibex carving dates to 4000years ago. I guess the horseman motif also dates around 4000 years ago if not earlier. Unfortunately there's no mention of its age. http://www.bradshawfoundation.com/middle_east/iran_rock_art/index.php
