San Diego Rock Art Association Virtual Meeting

Sunday, December 11, 2022, 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time

Long ignored by archaeologists, the recording and dating of petroglyphs and pictographs have expanded at an increasingly rapid rate since the 1990s. Johannes (Jannie) Loubser will talk about the distribution and sequence of petroglyphs and pictographs in northern Georgia and surrounding states, which include western North Carolina, northwestern South Carolina, northeastern Alabama, and southeastern Tennessee. Above- and below-ground pictographs date from the terminal Middle Archaic to early post-contact times, whereas above-ground petroglyphs date from the Late Archaic to early post-contact times. The landscape significance of these image-making traditions is better comprehended when viewed through the beliefs, customs, and experiences of descendant Iroquoian-speaking Cherokees and Muskogee-speaking Creeks.

Jannie has a Ph.D. in archaeology from the University of the Witwatersrand in southern Africa and a post-doctorate diploma in rock art conservation and management from the University of Canberra in Australia. He currently works as an archaeologist and rock art specialist at Stratum Unlimited, doing rock art recording, graffiti removal, excavations, and the writing and illustration of reports.
