Research by the Petroglyph Unit in the 2011 season was concentrated on recording two sites. One was site 6/09 in the Central Oasis, a multicultural site unusually rich in rock panels bearing an abundance of representations of ostriches and of the sandal/foot motif. The other one was Winkler’s site 62 in the Eastern Oasis, mainly of prehistoric provenance, with an exeptional panel depicting seven artful images of anthropomorphic figures.
