This book covers an extensive region of East Siberia, considering prehistoric ethno-cultural and social processes through the development of rock art styles and traditions. It addresses the questions of why rock art is created, why specific styles and traditions emerge and why changes in rock art occur. These questions are explored through anthropological perspectives on ethnicity, identity, and symbolism. A reader will find a comprehensive overview of the developments of rock art research in Siberia as well as detailed accounts of the regional archaeology in the Bronze/Iron ages, the Neolithic, and partially the Late Paleolithic. Importantly, this study is primarily fieldwork-based, presenting information on 108 rock art sites in Yakutia and Trans-Baikal. It is a major contribution to Siberian and global rock art research and suggests new directions for future rock art research.
