This volume Messages from the Past is the result of the archaeological surveys and investigations undertaken by the author over the last 10 years under the patronage of the Ministry of Heritage and Culture. The rock art of the Sultanate was one of the least studied in the Arabian Peninsula, but now this gap is going to be filled. In this book the author takes the reader on an in depth journey into the various themes present in the rock art of Oman. He offers theories on the chronology and interpretation, while exploring the landscape setting of the decorated panels and how best to research these. Several beautiful photographs and scientific tracings of the rock art accompany the text. The volume closes offering to enthusiasts and tourists a series of guided visits with GPS maps to the most interesting and visible rock art sites protected by the Royal Decrees of the Sultanate.
