The Archaeology of Rock-Art (New Directions in Archaeology)
About this book
Rock-art - prehistoric pictures - gives us lively and captivating images of animals and people painted and carved in caves and on open rock surfaces. It is all too easy to guess at the meanings the images carry. This pioneering set of sparkling essays instead explores how we can reliably learn from rock-art as a material record of distant times by adapting the proven methods of archaeology to the special subject of rock art.
