Rockartuk on the Move

Hi Folks,

We all know; Rock Art brings you to places! That counts also for our forthcoming trip to the area around Khomein in the Markazi province, 350km SSW of Tehran, Iran.

We were invited by Mr Mohammad Nasirifard, a former teacher who now writes books about prehistoric rock art in Iran. From of April 2007, we publish his photos in the

Iran collection of our sub-site “Worldwide Rock Art Selection”

We leave next Sunday (13th) and hope to be back around the 24th of April with a lot of nice photos and unforgettable memories.

So long,

Gus & Jan

    Good to see you’ve made it back Jan, we’ll be expecting many Iranian tales of stone during the RAM 🙂

    I wasn’t going to say anything – but now you mention it – hmmmm very interesting.
    Global phenomena?

    Looks like it’ll be wondrous trip Gus & Jan, there can’t be many folks this far west who’ve had the privilege…so enjoy it for all its worth!! Have a save trip.

    Graeme, notice the position of the carved figures 😉 Very similar to those found in the Libyan Saharan wadis.

    Lucky you!
    the photo looks similar to the big horn sheep rock art made by native Americans + the landscape looks similar too.
    It comes back to that old question – what drives people to carve rock surfaces?

    Have a good and safe trip – don’t get caught up in no ‘desert storm’ 🙂
