Arnoldia Vol 1(12) 1964 COOKE C.K. Iron Age influences in the rock art of Southern Africa. 1-7p

This paper discusses the introduction of figures in the Rock Art which do not appear to belong to the artists themselves. It is deduced from the paintings that the Later Stone Age communities were in contact with the Iron Age communities. Illustrations of domesticated animals, gourds, baskets,axes and hoes, and hunting with dogs are discussed.
