Rock Art at Little Lake: An Inside Look

A Presentation by Doug Brotherton

In 2013, the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at UCLA published Rock Art at Little Lake, a book about the sites at Little Lake Ranch in the Rose Valley, southern gateway to the Owens Valley. The privately owned Ranch contains one of the largest concentrations of varied rock art in this area of eastern California, second only to the Coso Rock Art Landmark, located 25 km east. A product of ten years of fieldwork carried out by an interdisciplinary research team at the UCLA Rock Art Archive, the book presents results of the analysis of 4,901 instances of rock art production at nine discrete loci. The study area contains the famous Stahl Site—location of some of the oldest housing structures found in the New World. Join us for An Inside Look at more pictures than made it into the book, presented by team member and book designer Doug Brotherton.

Show & Tell gives members the opportunity to share brief presentations on rock art topics of their choice. If you have about 20 digital images to share, contact Program Coordinator Steve Freers at
