Egypt Rock Art news archive
http://egyptrockart.blogspot.com/
Originally intended to chart progress with North East African rock art, this site never quite developed in the right direction, and now merely provides an archive of useful news items and online publications on the subject (I’m allowed to be unkind about  this website – it’s one of mine).
There is also a good set of links on this site for Egyptian Western Desert, African and Global rock art resources.
