Victoria Suzman, project cataloguer for the African rock art image project at the British Museum, posted to their blog on September 15, 2014: “Traces of the past: rock art and life in ancient North Africa.”
The African rock art image project team here at the British Museum is currently cataloguing photographs of rock paintings and engravings from Libya, Morocco and Algeria to add to the British Museum’s Collection database. Already, over 4,000 records from these countries, as well as from Egypt and Sudan, can be seen online. You can find out why we’re cataloguing almost 25,000 images from the archives of the Trust for African Rock Art by reading our previous blog post.
This is a great open access resource for this important cultural heritage collection…25k images, that’s a big deal!
