Petroglyph Links

RockArtNet is the first place I go for information on rock art around the world. They also maintain Tracce, an online journal of Rock Art, and the most complete Rock Art link page you'll probably ever see.

The Rock Art Bibliographic Database (new) Leigh Marymore's searchable Rock Art Database has been brought to the web, hosted by the Bancroft in Berkeley.

Stone Pages is a nicely designed site of archaeological sites dealing with Stone circles, dolmens, standing stones, cairns, barrows and hillforts.

The Rock Art Foundation is devoted to "the conservation and interpretation of the Native American rock art in the Lower Pecos region of Southwest Texas." Field schools, lectures and tours of local sites are available. Nicely desiged site.

Point of Reference is another good links page.

PETROGLYPH RECORDING PROJECT is an attempt to come to grips with the difficult job of recording petroglyphs in a standardised way. It's a long page of text, so you'll have to be really into the subject!

Petroglyphs and Pictograph Links is the About.com link page. You'll want to also visit the archaeology site itself and participate in the forums if you're interested in any aspect of archaeology.

UMRARA is the journal of the Upper Midwest Rock Art Research Association.

Rock Art Conservation. Connie Silver works on conserving a vandalized pictograph panel. See how it's done.

42Gr532....A Rock Art E-'Zine is a fine, illustrated bi-monthly zine devoted to rock art.

The Secret Site is an email exchange between two archaeologists illustrating the web's dynamics for interaction.

Side Canyon explores the American southwest through books, maps, videos, and great photos, and has a good Rock Art Link page as well.

Brazil '98 Field Journal: Rock Art of Serra da Capivara National Park is Dito Morale's entertaining journal kept during a visit to some rock paintings near São Raimundo Nonato.
