Abstract (in English)

"This is the fourth in the five-yearly series of surveys of what is happening in rock art studies around the world. The aims are to present a synthesis of the status of rock art research in different regions of the world, provide information about recent projects, publications, prevailing research objectives and methods, and enable rock art researchers to relate their findings in a specific region to mainstream research results." (source : http://www.oxbowbooks.com/oxbow/oxbow-books-imprint/rock-art-studies-4848.html) This article is a "brief introduction showing the dynamic that rock art research has acquired during the last few years in Colombia. Three topics deserve closer examination, either because they are at the centre of current worldwide debates or because they are challenging matters that extend beyond the basic postulates of traditional rock art research. These topics are: the archaeological analysis of rock art; concerns relating to education, presentation and protection of rock art sites from a Cultural Heritage perspective; and the meaning of rock art sites”.
