This paper presents a visual analytics system, named DARK, for supporting rock art archaeologists in exploring repositories of rock art scenes each consisting of hundreds of petroglyphs carved by ancient people on rocks. With their increasing complexity, analyzing these repositories of heterogeneous information has become a major task and challenge for rock art archaeologists. DARK combines visualization techniques with fuzzy-based analysis of rock art scenes to infer information crucial for the correct interpretation of the scenes. Moreover, the DARK views allow archaeologists to validate their hypothesis against the information stored in the repository.
