San Rock Art: A Jacana pocket guide by J.D Lewis-Williams

San rock paintings are scattered over the entire area of southern Africa and present us with one of the greatest cultural treasures of humankind. It is estimated that some 15 000 rock art sites are known and possibly as many await discovery. Nevertheless, how are we to make sense of their images, often baffling in their complexity and strangeness?
