Archeoastronomy: From Ancient to Ancient (Sky)
Just imagine how overwhelming the night sky would have been to our ancestors, and what the true meanings of these ancient, awe-inspiring structures, were to them.
What we know today is that most of them were at the same time temples for gods, sun, moon, planets and star worship, healing centers, burial sites and even calendars. Yet, we still cannot understand how did our ancestors manage to carry the mighty stones, and using only the most primitive of tools, to build this amazing structure?
Perhaps the answers are written in the stars, as they are the only ones who witnessed what happened long before we came here. What is certain is that surrounded by the deepest mysteries, these monuments never fail to impress.This was one of my favorite classes I’ve taken at school.
