From the Publisher: A preeminent writer and researcher in archaeoastronomy, Krupp has visited and photographed over 1,300 ancient and prehistoric sites all over the globe. He presents a fascinating survey of the astronomical beliefs and myths of ancient cultures all over the world, such as how the world was created, celestial powers that govern natural processes, and man's place in the cosmos. Describes the intriguing rituals each culture developed to worship the gods of the sky and how these rituals led to the field of modern astronomy. Contains new, previously undisclosed research on sites in Egypt, China, Tibet, India, the American Southwest, and other countries. Includes 150 photos, drawings, and illustrations--many of which have never been seen before.
