Details

Created over five millennia, the carved and painted depictions of humans, animals, boats and equipment on Alta’s rocky landscape give a glimpse of the beliefs and changing culture of prehistoric hunter-gatherers in Europe’s northernmost regions. This book, by an archaeologist who has spent decades documenting the sites, features over 250 illustrations and offers an interpretation of the art as a form of communication, both among humans and with ‘other-than-human’ beings.
