From the book:

The Rock-Art of Eastern North America brings together 20 papers on rock-art research ranging over 12 states and 4 Canadian provinces. Authors include professional archaeologists and art historians, as well as a retired orthopedic surgeon, a carpenter, a lawyer, two photographers, and others. Sections focus on the history, ethnography, recording methods, dating, and analysis of pictographs, petroglyphs, and dendroglyphs (or carvings on trees). A selection of chapters integrates this information with the archaeological data.

Rock-art is within the realm of archaeology as is material culture with its portable artifacts, and it is an excellend record of in situ human activity. Rock-art is finally coming into its own as these iconographic remnants on the landscape become recognized as windows into ancient objects and clothing, lifeways, and belief systems.
