Rock Art and the transition to farming : the Neolithic landscape of the central Mediterranean coast of Spain.

Fairén-Jiménez, S. (2004) 'Rock Art and the transition to farming : the Neolithic landscape of the central Mediterranean coast of Spain.', Oxford journal of archaeology., 23 (1). pp. 1-19.

Abstract

This paper deals with the analysis of stylistic variation between the different rock-art traditions that coexisted in the central Mediterranean coastal area of Spain in the Neolithic period – the Macro Schematic tradition, the Schematic tradition and the Levantine tradition. The stylistic variation is analyzed in different scales from the panel with its compositions and superimpositions, to the shelter – shared or exclusive – and the landscape, focussing on patterns of distribution and relationships with settlement sites. This stylistic analysis enables us to study the chronological aspects of the process of Neolithization; while the symbolic character of these marks on the landscape offers an insight into the perception and use of space by the communities who made them.
