Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

While significant advances have been made in direct dating French and Spanish rock art, direct dates obtained by AMS for the New World are extremely scarce and existing stylistic chronologies cannot be trusted. These papers from the International Rock Art Congress held in Bolivia in 1997 focus in the dating problem. They also reflect discussion of the earliest art in the light of recent research and as seen from a world palaeo-art perspective. Contents include: A universal standard for reporting the ages of petroglyphs and rock paintings (A. Watchman); Early rock art of mid-continental North America (J. Steinbring); The earliest petroglyph traditions on the north American plains (A. Tratebas); Dating rock art in Brazil (A. Prous); Dating the rock art at Monte Alegre, Brazil (A. Roosevelt); The chronology and evolution of the prehistoric rock paintings in the Sierra da Capivara National Park, Brazil (M. C. M. Lage); Argentina's oldest rock art (J. Schobinger); Pigment analysis and absolute dating of rock paintings from Jujuy, Argentina (M. I. H. Ilosas, A. Watchman, J. Southon); Face to face with the earliest 'art object' (Paul Bahn); The earliest rock art of Uzbekistan in its central Asian context (A. Rozwadowski & M. Huzanazarov); Chronostylistic elements fo rthe dating of the open-air rock art assemblage of Domingo Garcia, Spain (S. R. Lopez).
