Rock Art Studies: Theories, Methods and Management

Rock Art Studies: Theories, Methods and Management (© Didier Bouakaze-Khan)

This course introduces some of the major issues in the study of rock art: the role of art historical and anthropological theories in the interpretation of rock art, questions of dating and chronology, and the use of informed ethnographic approaches amongst others. Students will be made familiar with the range of processes which shape the surviving heritage of rock art, and explore issues of the management of rock art sites, ranging from conservation and display to issues of the use of rock art sites by contemporary indigenous peoples.
