Description

This paper clarifies the age of petroglyphs found at Lake Onega and the White Sea coast, in the Republic of Karelia, north-west Russia. Based on a detailed analysis of the natural and cultural contexts of the monuments, and on the recent dating of all Stone and Iron Age cultural types in Karelia, the author substantiates a common chronological framework for the Karelian rock art, and attempts to track the main stages of its development. The aim is to better understand the petroglyph era of Karelia, and the nature and dynamics of the region’s coeval natural processes.
