Libyan Rock Art

This collection contains images of rock-art of the Wadi al-Ajal, in the Fezzan region of south-west Libya. Several hundred engravings have so far been identified here. This rich concentration of rock-art spans the phase from at least 7,000 years ago until the present - a critical period of time which encompasses major transitions in human economy, culture and ideology from hunting and gathering to raising livestock, then to agriculture and more recently to industrialization. Rock-art provides fascinating evidence of how human groups were living during this period, what their relationships with their environment were and what they considered of importance and value. Because rock-art is deliberately placed at specific locations in the landscape, a powerful relationship can often exist between rock-art sites and natural landscape features.

Teaching with Collections

This issue of Smithsonian in Your Classroom includes two lessons from the Smithsonian Early Enrichment Center (SEEC). The first follows the SEEC model of introducing new concepts with familiar items. In early-algebra exercises, students organize a collection of random buttons, counting and multiplying them according to attributes. In the second lesson, the students work with a collection of seashells to see how sorting and classifying relates to the work of natural scientists.
