Traditional approaches to studying rock art centred on the production of gazetteers of sites and examples, but in recent years the tide has turned significantly. This study adds to the genre of research that seeks to provide meaningful interpretations of the purpose and significance of rock-art. Drawing on ideas and theories from other, non-British and non-Irish traditions, Edward Evans looks at the creation of images in the Neolithic and early Bronze Age of Britain and Ireland, and looks at its relationship with the landscape and architecture in new ways.
