The Enigmatic World of Ancient Graffiti: Rock Art in Chukotka, the Chaunskaya Region Russia

Details

This monograph is devoted to small forms of engraving on stone. It summarises the archaeological material obtained during the course of excavations at the Rauchuvagytgyn I site in northern Cukotka (dated to 2500 years ago). The book analyses the content and semantics of the pictorial resources and ethnic identification is made. The interpretive part of the study raises issues of an ideological character and brings one closer to the inaccessible realm of ideas and concepts of the ancients.
