Archaeology Seminar Series 2017 : Rock art of Omatepe Island, Nicaragua: a search for identity, significance, and interpretation Other events...
Nicaragua contains an enormous quantity of rock art, which is virtually unknown, and little formal rock art research or analysis has been carried out there. Her data consists of the largest body of formally recorded rock art in Lower Central America, collected during the course of the Ometepe Archaeological Project, which she has directed over ten field seasons. Over 2000 modified basalt boulders have been recorded, the vast majority of which contain petroglyph motifs. Her thesis research will focus on establishing the identity or identities of the makers of the art and its ritual significance.

Suzanne Baker is currently a doctoral student in rock art studies at Centre for Rock Art Research and Management, University of Western Australia. She is normally the principal and senior archaeologist for a cultural research management firm in Oakland, California.
