Description

Professor Rodrigo de Balbin has played a major role in advancing our knowledge of Palaeolithic art, and the occasion of his retirement provides an excellent opportunity to assess the value of prehistoric art studies as a factor in the study of the culture of those human groups which produced this imagery.

The diverse papers in this volume, published in Professor de Balbin's honour, cover a wide variety of the decorated caves which traditionally defined Palaeolithic art, as well as the open-air art of the period, a subject in which he has done pioneering work at Siega Verde and elsewhere.

The result is a new and more realistic assessment of the social and symbolic framework of human groups from 40,000 BP onwards.
