Are you curious about the peoples and cultures behind prehistoric rock imagery (aka rock art) across Utah? Elizabeth has some answers...and some evasive maneuvers too. The most common question people ask when faced with prehistoric rock imagery is "What does this mean?" It is a question which archaeologists are uniquely ill-equipped to answer. Why is that? And who can we turn to for answers? We will dive into the challenge of interpretation, and you may be surprised where the conversations lead you!
