LArcHer is an interdisciplinary research project led by ICREA Research Professor Inés Domingo. LArcHer project aims at pioneering a new and more comprehensive way of understanding one of Europe’s most extraordinary bodies of prehistoric art, awarded Unesco World Heritage status in 1998 : Levantine rock art (LRA).
The ground-breaking nature of the project relies on combining a multidisciplinary (Archaeology, Heritage Science and IT) and multiscale approach (from microanalysis to landscape perspectives) to gain a holistic view of this art.
It also aims at closing existing gaps between science and heritage mainstreams, to better understand the values and threats affecting this tradition and bring about a change in the way we understand, care, use and manage this millenary legacy.
One of the key aims of this project, is to redefine Levantine rock art through a new multidisciplinary and multi-scale approach.
In this part of the project, and related to this particular position, the idea is to combine fieldwork (surveys, excavations and study of particular rock art sites) with traditional approaches to rock art using qualitative and quantitative analysis (statistical analysis) with the use of digital recording techniques (graphic recording and digital databases) and GIS.
This research will be developed in collaboration and in parallel to other experimental approaches conducted by other members of the project.
