This is the first publication in the Rock Art series of the IGNCA. It consists of selected papers from the World Congress of Rock Art held in Darwin in 1988. The papers presented in this volume are convincing proof of the importance of the study of rock art, both for archaeology as also ethnology and lifestyle studies. The vast spectrum shows that although there has been a history of research on rock art, as a young discipline it is exploring various avenues of growth. Several of the papers indicate the extensive research carried out in India.
