Childrens Rock Art. A scandinavian Study

Childrens Rock Art. A Scandinavian Study by Francis Joy.
In terms of teaching materials in children’s mainstream education in Finland and engagement with local prehistoric rock art this is still a subject matter which is fairly minimal regarding the use of art as an educational resource despite links with Finnish and Sami pre-Christian religion and spiritual practices. There are similar issues between the Sámi people in Sweden and Norway and prehistoric rock art and education. This study aims to demonstrate how by linking past and present together using ancient art this approach facilitates place-based learning and identity building, where nature and ancient history are the classroom.
