Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
In contrast to other Atlas and Saharan regions, the prehistoric stone-carvings of certain Moroccan districts are not well known. This volume presents the author's study of various sites (two in Msissi and three in Tazzarine), and especially her attempts to analyze their zoomorphic rock engravings and to insert them in their chronological, cultural, and environmental contexts through a multidisciplinary approach. The engraved bestiary shows several affinities with the neolithic fauna of some sites in the Sahara. The evidence suggests a wide time-span, covering the neolithic era until the protohistoric periods.
