Considered together, these articles address the question: what constitutes good ethnographic practice in rock art research in the 21st century? The authors reflect on the capacity of ethnography to advance knowledge in the study of rock art, ponder the limitations of this form of analysis and consider the ethics of conducting ethnographic research with living peoples.
