Cave graffiti evaluation

Searching for conservation resources...

Caver hive-mind....

Is anyone aware of research or evaluation studies done on the identification of historical graffiti vs. modern graffiti? We're working with the Bureau of Land Management to try and do a conservation project in one of their caves before the 2016 convention. ... Some informational resources would be nice.

Thanks!

Have you looked at the rock art chapter(starts pg 99) in Cave Conservation and Restoration? http://bookstore.caves.org/index.php?mode=store&submode=showitem&itemnumber=07-0013-2006
