Kamyana Mohyla is Ukraine's largest and most prominent rock art complex and is located at least one thousand kilometers from other comparable rock art sites. Situated on the western edge of the Eurasian Steppe belt, the site shows prehistoric imagery from several different contexts-some of its engravings are considered in the frame of European rock art, whilst others introduce local features, or find parallels in distant parts of Central Asia.This book presents the first digital study of the Kamyana Mohyla rock art, including iconic caves and an extensive collection of portable engraved stones. The text also links to a collection of 3D models which further illustrate these artefacts. Radchenko’s work fills a geographical gap in the discussion of Eurasian prehistoric art, placing Ukrainian prehistoric art in its global context. Combining archaeological methodologies with a strong narrative voice, the volume summarizes the research results of the last decade prior to the interruption of site activities at the onset of Russian aggression in Ukraine.
