Scientific context and Research Topic:

LArcHer is an interdisciplinary research project led by ICREA Research Professor Inés Domingo and Universitat Jaume I GenT Excelence Researcher Dídac Roman. LArcHer project aims at pioneering a new and more comprehensive way of understanding one of Europe’s most extraordinary bodies of prehistoric art, awarded Unesco World Heritage status in 1998: Levantine rock art (LRA). The ground-breaking nature of the project relies on combining a multidisciplinary (Archaeology, Heritage Science and IT) and multiscale approach (from microanalysis to landscape perspectives) to gain a holistic view of this art. It also aims at closing existing gaps between science and heritage mainstreams, to better understand the values and threats affecting this tradition and bring about a change in the way we understand, care, use and manage this millenary legacy. One of the key aims of this project, related to this position, is the documentation with digital technology (2D and 3D) of the rock art sites located in the north of the Valencian Country and its bordering territories (Teruel and Tarragona).


  • To develop leadership on the multiple facets of Levantine rock art research (rock art descriptions, stylistic analysis and so forth).
  • Collaborate in comparative analysis with other major rock art traditions.
  • Use and test digital recording techniques (photography and 2D and 3D tracing).
  • Collaborate in archaeological surveys in the research area.
  • Management tasks for LArcHer project (max. 10% of the time) including drafting applications for permits and formal reports, among others).
  • Prepare and present the achieved results in international and national conferences and publications.
