About this book

States that rock art is often one of the strongest lines of evidence available to scholars in understanding ritual practices, gender roles, and ideological constructs of prehistoric peoples. This book argues that art is both a product of its physical and social environment and a tool of influence in shaping behavior and ideas within a society.

Reader's Thoughts

Katherine

A lot of this book is very dense and I had trouble making sense of it. One excellent chapter on gender in landscape.
