Foreword

    Abstract

    Festschrifts are only produced for the very best scholars. And they are produced by the best scholars. So, the papers in this book contain some of the finest thinking in rock art research, undertaken by people who have been inspired by one of the greatest thinkers in rock art research. This book shows that John Clegg was loved. He was loved by his family, no doubt, but he was also loved by his students and his colleagues. Not all scholars are loved by their colleagues, and few have the honour of having a festschrift published in their honor. Festschrifts are only produced for the very best scholars. And John Clegg was one of the very best scholars. His work feeds into current debates concerning archaeology of the senses, phenomenology and even symmetrical archaeology, as well as studies of the contemporary past. The next generation of archaeologists will be wrestling with the implications of John Clegg’s work for years to come.
