This book springs from the compilation of papers and posters presented in 2013 and 2014 at the 2nd and 3rd Enardas Colloquia, entitled ‘Living Places, Experienced Places’. The first part, in two chapters, is entitled 'Concepts and tools to study rock art'. The second part, ‘From sub-naturalistic to Schematic rock art tradition’, discusses various expressions of recorded art in the hinterland area of northwest Iberia, as well as expressions of the schematic art tradition from north-central Portugal. The third part, ‘Atlantic tradition rock art’ comprises four chapters. The fourth part, ‘Other styles’, includes five chapters focusing on depictions that the book editors consider distinct from the best-known regional styles.
