Although the prehistoric rock art of South Africa, France and other countries has been widely publicized, the corresponding art of the Rhodesias and Nyasaland is comparatively unknown, even locally. Nevertheless over one thousand sites have been located in the Federation and it will be the aim of the National Publications Trust's second publication to reproduce in colour, copies of paintings taken from some of these illustrating the many styles from almost naturalistic drawings of animals to the highly developed, almost calligraphic, forms found in Northern Rhodesia. Rock engravings, of which but a few are known in our area, are also illustrated. The principal contributor is Mrs Elizabeth Goodall, F. R. A. I. , whose rock painting studies, pursued over the past twenty -five years, have attracted widespread interest. Other contributors are Dr. Desmond Clark, Mr C. R. Cooke, & Mr Roger Summers.
