Irish Prehistoric Rock Art – with Clare Busher O’Sullivan

The Shindig – An Archaeology Podcast

We marvel at the beauty of the prehistoric phenomenon of ‘Atlantic Rock Art’, most known for its distinctive yet enigmatic cup-and-ring marks, that swept Atlantic Europe from the Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Age, but did you know about the race to record and protect it? In this episode, Clare Busher O’Sullivan talks with Tom about her fascinating work on Atlantic Rock Art in south-west Ireland, and the high-tech drive to record and help preserve the open-air examples of these beautiful and ancient stone carvings before they are damaged or even destroyed by a combination of natural and human-led processes.
