Horses and equestrian scenes in Iron Age rock art of the Iberian Peninsula Chevaux et scenes equestres dans lart ruplestre de lage du Fer de la Peninsule iberique



Anthropozoologica, 412: 125-139



In the assemblage of rock art representations of the Iron Age in the Iberian peninsula, painted figures of horses and equestrian scenes are prominent. Following analysis of their technical, stylistic and morphological characteristics, the study of the archaeological and historical context highlights the preponderant role of horses and their riders in these protohistoric decorative scenes. They are graphic symbols of the economic, political and social ascent of the equestrian elites.
