Beskrivelse

Southern Tradition prehistoric art is used to refer to and describe imagery from a variety of periods and geographic areas across Scandinavia. The art is found on a range of mediums, including rock art, metal, ceramic and organic materials. Whilst the prevailing trend regards the pictorial world of Southern Tradition art as one single entity, recent studies hint at significant variations in chronology, style and, in the case of rock art, landscape location. No previous study has set out to compare all the different areas where Southern Tradition art is found with a view to critically interrogating the extent of homogeneity within Southern Tradition prehistoric art. This PhD project redresses this gap by assessing the extent of regional differences in rock art within a series of in-depth, large scale, case studies. Results will be compared with other archaeological remains and any ambiguities in the evidence, if present, investigated.
