In the depths of a cave, the first artists in the history of Humanity painted a masterpiece of horses, lions, rhinos and other animals, and captured them in action running, hunting, and fighting.
Not far from the original cave, 36000 years later, scientists, engineers and artists accomplished a unique feat in the world by reconstructing the Chauvet - Pont d’Arc Cave.

Documenting the PAST for the FUTURE.
Rock art in danger sounds dramatic, nevertheless it is not an overstatement. During the last hundred years different kinds of destructions have never been so rapid and extensive. It is urgent to record as much as possible, because in the next 50-100 years a large part of the cultural heritage all over the world will have disappeared.
The international RockArtSeminar offers the opportunity to attend lectures, as well as the chance to work on some of the most beautiful panels in Northern Europe together with 25 – 30 participants from different countries - within the project: Documentation and Registration of Rock Art in Tanum UNESCO World Heritage Area. The preliminary program can be found here.
Join us in a unique possibility to record the beautiful images of Tanums World Heritage Area. More information on the Arbetsseminar (week 30) and the program can be found on our website: www.RockArtScandinavia.com. It will be an experience to remember!
