From the earliest examples the world's oldest rock art, desert varnish, and engravings to the most recent findings and examples, researcher Flood presents an authoritative survey of an artform that has survived millennia and illuminated societies the world over.

The chronological approach and many previously unpublished pictures give the book the excitement of an unfolding story.
