Rock art and rock markings

30th December 2013

Andree Rosenfeld

Introduction*

This paper examines a range of features commonly found at rock art sites, that have conventionally been considered components of rock art, but which (as briefly outlined elsewhere [Rosenfeld 1993:76–77, 1997:291]) should be considered as a distinct cultural category. These features include the finger flutings, abraded lines and pits of the caves along the southern margin of the continent, battered rock ridges that are common, for instance, in the Laura area, pitted rocks in several regions of subtropical Australia, incised grooves that are widespread throughout Central Australia, as well as hand stencils, hand prints and other stencils or prints.

*Note that an abstract was not included with this paper, and so the introductory paragraph has been included here instead of the abstract.
