This paper addresses the clarification of the age of Lake Onega and White Sea petroglyphs in the Republic of Karelia, North-West Russia. Based on a detailed analysis of the natural and cultural settings of the monuments, and the recent dating of all Stone Age – Iron Age cultural types of Karelia the author substantiates a common chronological framework of the Karelian rock art. It is attempted to track the main stages of its development, which have been modified considerably, and so the petroglyph era of Karelia, the nature and dynamics of the coeval natural processes can be portrayed in more detail and with better argumentation.
