The African landscape is littered with information about its prehistoric inhabitants, no more so than in its broad range of rock art. This large book forms one of the best and most comprehensive illustrated guides to the art containing almost 400 colour photographs and line drawings. Detailed discussions of the African land and its people, of the different styles, subjects and dating of the art, and the sites themselves, are followed by a regional study of examples. Includes stunning photographs of some of the most precious, and most threatened, art images in the world.

Informative, but mostly based on the white man's interpretations.
