A Course on the management of rock art heritage

Lecture by Mélanie Duval on the management of rock art heritage. It draws on research carried out since 2009 on rock art sites in the Drakensberg massif. More specifically, it examines the effects of World Heritage listing on the management of rock art sites, looking into the advances made and the challenges faced by site managers today.

The lecture was given to students in Heritage Studies at Sol Plaatje University in March 2022.
