Abstract

Long a pioneer in the study of rock art, Professor Anati here provides a report of his most recent work in the Negev. The region around Har Karkom has proved to be exceptionally rich in a wide variety of images that span the transitions from hunters and gatherers to early pastoralists and historically documented societies. Based on an encyclopedic knowledge of rock art, an innovative set of interpretations of the meanings and behaviors associated with the images are offered. Har Karkom, in particular, fascinates because of the abundance of cultic and ritual behaviors depicted in the art, well captured in the author's splendid photographs.
