Abstract

This paper explores the problem of the correlation of rock art traditions and archaeological cultures of the lower Amur basin (Russian Far East) in the Neolithic period. The aim of the paper is to reconsider established chronology based on recent archaeological findings and advances in rock art data. This researcher's previous paper on this topic only considered face design, but in this article, zoomorphic images are also examined. A recently-discovered pattern of a long-lasting rock art tradition is explained through an anthropological perspective on ethnicity, identity, social practice, symbolism and community.
