Description

Ancient people viewed the sky differently than we do. Skywatchng was crucial to daily life, since the motions of the heavens served as timekeeper, calendar, compass, and almanac for planning when to plant and harvest. In Part 2 of this series, Bradley E. Schaefer, Ph.D. brings to life the interdisciplinary subjects of archaeoastronomy, cosmology, mythology, mathematics, celestial mapping, astrology, divination, time keeping, calendars, navigation, and ancient technology, among other fields. Ancient monuments such as Stonehenge and the Great Pyramid of Giza are tied to astronomical and celestial cycles.

See course #905 for Part 1 of 2.
