Summary details for Rock painting


All archaeological sites and remains in Namibia are protected by law (National Heritage Act 27 of 2004). Some incidental protection is provided by the Environmental Management Act (7 of 2007) which includes man-made features in its definition of the environment.

Recorders should not collect anything from the site, ever.

You should never moisten paintings to enhance them for photography.
