Abstract: This monograph reports on archaeological and art historical field work carried out from 28 May through 5 July, 2012 by a joint American-Mongolian team at the Biluut Petroglyph Complex located approximately12km west of Sirgal on the northeastern shore of Khoton Nuur, in Bayan Ulgii aimag’s Tsengel soum. The year’s research comprises the second and final field season of a three-year project supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities, with assistance from the Smithsonian Institution, East Tennessee State University, and the Mongolian National Museum. The 2012 project was joined for three weeks by an international field team led by Dr. Jean-Luc Houle of Western Kentucky University.
