It is my opinion that Rockart archeology is dormant now for many years. It is stuck at the level of counting Rockart objects such as animals, people and then arranges the numbers into nice statistics tables without real meaning. Thousands of papers written about Rockart didn’t advance our knowledge of the subject. Why is it so? It’s the nature of the information that we are trying to decipher, extracting it from many pictures. Their rules are hidden, but they exist! We just need to postulate and interpret them. From a scientific point of view, it is a big NO NO, a real sin. But then, well tell me how can we move forward?
Take a look at my book excerpt Rockart in Israel outline. Borrowing ideas is legal and using them is acceptable and saves much time.
