There are as many as 15,000 known rock art sites, created over the course of thousands of years up until the nineteenth century.

There are possibly just as many still awaiting discovery.Taking as his starting point the magnificent Linton panel in the Iziko-South African Museum in Cape Town, J. D. Lewis-Williams examines the artistic and cultural significance of rock art and how this art sheds light on how San image-makers conceived their world. It also details the European encounter with rock art as well as the contentious European interaction with the artists descendants, the contemporary San people.
