TARA Archive online with British Museum

Thanks to a partnership with the British Museum and support from the Arcadia Fund, over the next four years TARA’s Rock Art Archive will become available online and people around the world will be able to explore and learn more about Africa’s rock art.

The British Museum is cataloguing over 20,000 images from TARA’s collection geographically by country, starting in Northern Africa, and will be continuously adding images to the database. Check the African rock art project page for updates, featured images, and to see how we are using rock art to learn more about Africa, from ancient times through to present day. The first collection of images being presented is from Egypt.
