Petroglyphs--drawings on rock--are the earliest and richest traces of human culture in Zangskar, a distinctive region of the Western Himalayas. This volume is richly illustrated with original photographs taken in Zangskar and neighboring regions documenting the locations and details of these enigmatic rock carvings. The photographs represent more than twenty years of fieldwork in Zangskar. They accompany a wide-ranging inquiry into their subject matter, distribution, communication strategies, and relationships with those in surrounding areas. Through archaeology, comparative anthropology and ethnography, and formal analysis, the study, written in accessible prose, demonstrates the connections to huntergatherers and later to herders who made them. These drawings on stone once provided a visual legacy in the landscape of contemporary Zangksar is with their economy mixing agriculture and herding, but are fast disappearing with the destructive expansion of road-building and neglect. ;;Besides more than 150 illustrations, the book comes with a DVD with an additional 143 color illustrations.;;;; ;
