Archaeology and Physical Anthropology in Oceania, 15 2 : In Chapters 6 and 7 Morwood hones in on two specific approaches to the study of rock-art: subject analysis, which is mainly concerned with the figurative component of rock-art assemblages, and structural analysis, which deals with both figurative and non-figurative elements and their patterning in time and space. The final chapter of the book offers a concise summary of the physical and legal ways in which the rock-art of Australia is currently being protected, the range of impacts—cultural and natural—which affect rock-art preservation and the various choices of conservation available.
The only potential drawback of the volume, given that it will most likely serve as a textbook on Australian rock art studies, is the referencing system used.
This is a criticism directed at the publishers rather than the author who was obviously following editorial instruction. Only a decade ago rock-art was a thriving discipline in Australia.
In the last few years, however, it has suffered enormously from the retirement of two academics: John Clegg of the University of Sydney and Andree Rosenfeld of the Australian National University, both of whom dedicated much of their working lives to teaching rock-art. More generally, it also promotes the fact that rock-art is an essential line of evidence for archaeologists.
