Scotland’s Rock Art Project (ScRAP) is the first major research project focusing on prehistoric rock art in Scotland.
Rock art is one of the most fascinating and mysterious aspects of our past. Rock art refers to images, symbols, and marks that have been painted or engraved onto natural rock surfaces. People have been creating rock art across the world for over 40,000 years.
The project is a collaboration between Historic Environment Scotland, Edinburgh University, and Glasgow School of Art. Our aim is to enhance understanding and knowledge of Scotland’s rock art through community co-production and research. We are training people across Scotland to record the prehistoric carvings. This information will help us study the carvings, and raise awareness of them locally, nationally and internationally.
