Defining sacredness of rock art sites in the Sonoran Desert
Author(s): Julio Amador
Based on landscape archaeology, achaeoastronomy, the analysis of rock art iconography, ethnohistoric and ethnographic documents, this paper proposes to define the factors that determine the sacredness of rock art sites in the Sonoran Desert. Well characterized common patterns can be found in most of the rock art sites that will be described, facts that confirm with certainty we can speak of shared cultural traits within the region.
