As mentioned previously here, there has always been a division on whether the specific locations of Rock Art Sites should be shared with the General Public.
There are those that believe that as individuals living in this country we should have the right to any and all information that Our Government and it’s workers (our friends and neighbors) have gathered for whatever purposes. It is important to share locational information in order to broaden the research base and educate the said General Public on the roots of societies as well as develope a common respect and reverance for Rock Art and Rock Art Sites. By being able to directly travel to a previously documented Site prevents needless crissrossing of sensitive environment where many Rock Art Sites exist.
And then there are those that prefer to keep all things secret when it comes to Rock Art site location. Let folks find it on their own, it’s better experience that way. If people find out about Rock Art, well, it’ll be ruined! Vandalized by people trying to take it home with them. And the more folks that know where a Rock Art Site is then the more distruction of the surrounding area with footprints and trails and noise and litter.
Either way, what do you think? Take a moment and share your position!
