Evelyn Billo founded Rupestrian CyberServices in 1997 to provide technical services to rock art site managers and others. Services include rock art site recording, high resolution photography and digital image enhancement, linking images, to maps, scanning and archiving research materials, comparing archival images with current rock art condition, image database creation, and production of multimedia projects for education or management.
Since then, Rupestrian CyberServices has engaged in many projects, both large and small. In addition to site mapping, photography, and documentation, we have been envolved in fire-impact evaluation and in exhibit curation and multimedia development. We have developed innovative solutions for many of these projects.
Our major projects have been as contractor or subcontractor with the National Park Service, U. S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, the Defense Department, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, the Museum of Northern Arizona, and the Deer Valley Rock Art Center.
Since it obtained its recognition, the Cultural Route of the Council of Europe "Prehistoric Rock Art Trails" has been managed by the International Association "Prehistoric Rock Art Trails" (or A. I. CARP) a non-profit-making organisation founded in 2007 by the institutions which promoted the candidacy of the trail. The Association's head office is currently in Cantabria, Spain and is coordinated administratively and technically by the Cantabrian Network for Rural Development, the organisation that will hold the Presidency of the Association until 2016.The functions of A.I. CARP are to monitor the functioning of this Council of Europe Cultural Route, encourage joint activities among its members, manage the route which brings together European rock-art destinations administratively and culturally, and verify that the objectives of the route are achieved, in accordance with Resolution (98) 4 of the Council of Europe about European Cultural Routes.
The Rock Art Research Institute (RARI) has a substantial collection of historical documents, photographs, redrawings and slides in addition to its large working collection of slides, tracings and redrawings. Over time, many of the older slides started to change colour and deteriorate in quality, prompting a programme to preserve the historical documents, photographs and slides in RARI's possession and reduce their handling by researchers and visitors.
THE AFRICAN ROCK ART DIGITAL ARCHIVE
TARA is an international, Nairobi-based organization committed to recording the rich rock art heritage of the African continent, to making this information widely accessible and, to the extent possible, safeguarding those sites most threatened by humans and nature. To achieve its mission, TARA works closely with communities where rock art is found as well as with national and international heritage bodies including the UNESCO World Heritage Centre.
TARA - TRUST FOR AFRICAN ROCK ART
Welcome to the website for the Scotland’s Rock Art Project! Around 5000 years ago, people in Scotland carved mysterious symbols on rock surfaces across the landscape. We call these prehistoric carvings ‘rock art’ and, if we look carefully, we can still see traces of them today. Thousands of prehistoric carvings are known in Scotland, and there may be many more waiting to be discovered. They were clearly important to the people that created them, but we know little about how were they used, or what purpose they served. Scotland’s Rock Art Project is working with communities across Scotland to learn more about these enigmatic carvings.
On our website you can find out what we are doing, and how you could get involved. You can search our database for prehistoric carvings in Scotland, and discover more about rock art here and elsewhere in the world.

British Rock Art Group (BRAG) has recently celebrated its 15th birthday. Affectionately known as BRAG, it has been in existence since 2003. The origins of BRAG are rooted in CRAG (Cambridge Rock Art Group) which was conceived in the late 1990's. The CRAG meetings were organised by Christopher Chippindale, Jamie Hampson and Liliana Janik. Owing to its popularity it became clear that CRAG should grow its remit and expand into the ‘provinces’.
The subject matter at the meetings has varied considerably over the years, striking a happy medium between British and international research. International research has included presentations on the interpretation of the rock art of, for example, Australia, Armenia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Egypt, India, Ireland, Israel, Libya, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, and Sweden. A wide international spread! Several delegates have also boldly ventured into the realms of modern graffiti and street art, while others have addressed the deterioration of rock art and management requirements.
BRAG speakers have generally been post-graduate students and university academics but has also included independent and avocational archaeologists involved in rock art research. It has been particularly useful for post-graduate students and it has provided them with a ‘safe’ opportunity to obtain experience of public speaking. The BRAG meetings usually run over two days; the Saturday is devoted to lectures and the Sunday involves a field trip to local rock art areas. In addition, we encourage archaeological publishing companies to provide attendees with their list of rock art books; these companies usually offer generous discounts on their books.
