British Museum African rock art image project. The Cambridge Illustrated History of Prehistoric Art 劍橋插圖史前藝術史


The Sahara Desert hasn’t always been dry – between around 11,000 and 5,000 years ago, it was a lush green environment where elephants, giraffes, crocodiles and humans all lived side by side. This video looks at some of the incredible rock art made in this period, and what we can learn from it.

The Cambridge Illustrated History of Prehistoric Art
TEXTBOOK

Part of Cambridge Illustrated Histories
AUTHOR: Paul G. Bahn
DATE PUBLISHED: November 1997


Beautifully illustrated in colour with many rare and unique photographs, prints, and drawings, The Cambridge Illustrated History of Prehistoric Art presents the first balanced and truly world-wide survey of prehistoric art. The book also offers the first detailed account of how the world of scholarship became aware of the existence of prehistoric art, reproducing the very earliest drawings by explorers and surveyors from the 1600s onwards to create a unique pictorial as well as discursive resource. With this powerful combination of illustration and analysis, Paul Bahn describes what prehistoric art is and the different ways in which it can shed light on the lives and preoccupations of our ancestors: sexual, humorous, social, economic, and religious.
  • The first book to present an account of how prehistoric art was discovered by the world of scholarship, what it consists of, how it can shed light on the lives of our ancestors
  • Only truly world-wide survey of prehistoric art covering all prehistoric eras, not just Europe or the Ice Age
  • Superb photographs from inaccessible sites, and prints of very early reproductions of ancient art by travellers, explorers, and surveyors
  • Uniquely illustrated subject resource of art not only unknown to the public, but also to many archaeologists, let alone art historians
