Daniel James

Daniel James is a rock art specialist and PhD candidate at Monash University. His PhD project, under the supervision of Dr Bruno David, Associate Professor Ian McNiven and Robert “ben” Gunn, involves an investigation of chronological and spatial dimensions of the rock art at the “Boat site” complex, Jawoyn country. This site complex contains a broad range of artworks spanning the entire spread of major Jawoyn art styles including extinct fauna (e.g. Tasmanian tiger, Tasmanian devil). His work thus has the potential to assist in understanding the rock art at other Jawoyn sites. Daniel has also worked on the early Holocene rock art of Egypt’s Western Desert, and with Aboriginal communities on archaeological sites across Victoria.
