An emphasis on rock features and rock imagery within a landscape context offers a range of research potentials. This symposium will present and extend research with attention to recent collaborative efforts about traditional land and resource uses. Presentations indicate locational to landscape relationships. This includes rock imagery on boulders, basalt panels and escarpments, and stacked rocks, cairns, walls, blinds, circles and rings. This research demonstrates the need to enhance understanding of changing environments and climates over the millennia and into the future. Preserving and protecting rock features and rock imagery in cultural contexts and archaeological landscapes is emphasized.
