    Name: A Journey Into The Ancient Namib Desert: Rock Paintings, a Vanished People and Water Scarcity with Mark Jenkins
    Date: September 18, 2019
    Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM MDT
    Event Description:
    Brandberg, Namibia’s highest mountain, conceals the greatest collection of rock paintings on earth. Hidden in the shade beneath granite boulders, where an extinct tribe once escaped the scorching heat of the Namib Desert, 4000-year-old paintings depict a lost world of giraffes and elephants, snakes and springbok, bow hunters and community celebrations. On assignment for National Geographic in 2015, writer Mark Jenkins climbed Brandberg in 120 degree heat to explore this alfresco art museum and reflect on the challenges of water scarcity then and now. This event is free and open to the public. For additional information about other program locations, please visit www.uwyo.edu/engagement.
