In trying to come to a better understanding of rock-paintings that relate to beliefs
about rain, I therefore also consider the beliefs of farming communities. Rain-
making and rain-creatures A central aspect of the many beliefs about rain
involves a creature of some kind - specifically identified or not. Following Orpen (
1874), Stow (Stow 1905; Stow and Bleek 1930) and Bleek (1933a, 1933b), a
number of researchers have identified rain-creatures in the rock-art, creatures
that are like ...

you could see the fossil remains of these creatures in this rock. There were also
bryozoans, small animals that superficially resembled corals, which grew in
tightly packed colonies resembling intricate fans, lacy fronds, or fruitlike displays
that accumulated into massive stony buttresses. Also here were clamlike
creatures called brachiopods, which were filled with a tangle of filaments that
helped the animal sift food from the water but which would have made a poor

More Than Sand Rocks in the Sinai and northern Sahara can tell us about the
history of these deserts. Scientists have found fossils of prehistoric sea creatures
in the rocks. This evidence suggests that the deserts were once under the sea.
Over millions of years, the sea dried up. The fossils of sea creatures remained
preserved under layers of rock and sand. Canyons After the sea dried up, forests
and fertile grasslands covered the land. But then the climate changed. It started to

hunger, she might be happy to accept an illusion, that she is the only creature still
alive. But it is her hunger that makes her stretch and move, and there were
creatures in the rocks. She ripped open their refuges and found them. She tore
into their backs and the rest ran shrieking away. This was a matter of a few
minutes. But when she looked up with her tyger's eyes, the world had changed.
She had an impression of a marmalade cat that crouched above her on the
boulder in the light, ...

FOCUS ON: Rock dingers While most marine creatures swim or float freely in the
water, some live firmly attached to rocks or other surfaces. This helps protect
them from the waves that sweep over them twice a day as the tide comes in.
Barnacles, one kind of rock dinger, are among the most common creatures on the
shore. Huge colonies of them cover rocks and shore debris, and even attach
themselves to other creatures such as mussels. Barnacles begin life as free-
swimming larvae ...

There are vast amounts of limestone, formed from the shells of marine creatures,
so we were once under a warm, shallow sea; and we still have large reserves of
coal that came from tropical forests and swamps. Fossils show that dinosaurs
once roamed what is now Britain, and the plant fossils that are seen with the
dinosaur remains are large ferns, so the climate in those times was much warmer
