The Oxford Conferences on Archaeoastronomy
Newgrange (Ireland) © Diego Meozzi ( from Stone Pages (
The Oxford Conferences on Archaeoastronomy are a series of triennial meetings that have focused on the role that astronomical phenomena have played in human societies, ranging from the applied (such as the basis for calendrics and orientations) to the ceremonial (the significance given the "ritual landscape" of the sky). These conferences serve as a meeting place for those working in anthropology, archaeology, history and prehistory, archaeoastronomy, and other studies of human cultures who share a common interest in the importance of astronomical phenomena to traditional societies of the past and present. The emphasis of these meetings is on the reaction of human societies to these astronomical phenomena as part of the world view of each society. We invite inquiries from those studying specific societies who include aspects of astronomy in their investigations, as well as those interested in comparative studies of the reaction across societies to common astronomical phenomena.

Archaeoastronomy in progression
As an embryonic discipline, Archaeoastronomy has progressed to encompass other scientific areas,most notably, Astronomy, Surveying, Mythology, Archaeology, Geodesics etc. Just as the ancients studied science from an undifferentiated viewpoint, today's practitioners must blend and draw from many diversified specialised fields. Back in the 1960's Gerald Hawkins,attached to the Smithonian Institute, was intrigued by observations taken at Stonehenge concerning lunar alignments. Asking IBM, the computer giant, Hawkins wondered if computers could map out alignments going back into the past. He discovered hundred of correspondances. Naturally the nascent science of Archeoastronomy comes up for criticism from the more well established fields of science and more than one comment has been the overwhelming preponderance of correspondances in the sky. However, astute researchers are keen to point out that these correspondances are narrowed down in relation to terrestrial landmarks, contemporaneous cultures and timelines established usually by the archeological sciences. The idea of being open minded but not too misguided is the sure approach to gaining confidence in one's abilities for alignment determination. Unlike today ,computers back then were klunky machines, absorbing vast quantities of power on mainframes. So a new research tool was made available to astronomers, engineers, surveyors, artists and laypeople to use to ascertain celestial tracking at monuments.

Archaeoastronomy at Stonehenge
Already in the 18th century the British antiquarian William Stukeley had noticed that the horseshoe of great trilithons and the horseshoe of 19 bluestones at Stonehenge opened up in the direction of the midsummer sunrise. It was quickly surmised that the monument must have been deliberately oriented and planned so that on midsummer's morning the sun rose directly over the Heel Stone and the first rays shone into the centre of the monument between the open arms of the horseshoe arrangement. View from the center of Stonehenge towards the Heel Stone , and a photograph of the sun rising over the Heel Stone This discovery has had tremendous impact on how Stonehenge has been interpreted. For Stukeley in the 18th century and Sir Norman Lockyer in the first years of the 20th century, this alignment implied a ritualistic connection with sun worship and it was generally concluded that Stonehenge was constructed as a temple to the sun. More recently, though, the astronomer Gerald Hawkins has argued that Stonehenge is not merely aligned with solar and lunar astronomical events, but can be used to predict other events such as eclipses. In other words, Stonehenge was more than a temple, it was an astronomical calculator.

A maze of man-made chambers, walls and ceremonial meeting places, America's Stonehenge is one of the oldest man-made construction in the United States. (over 4000 years old). Archaeological Excavation at the site has uncovered an amazing range of historic and pre-historic artifacts-from stone tools, pottery and ancient old world scripts to 18th and 19th century house wares, and manacles (possibly removed from slaves who used the site as a stop on the underground railroad in the 1830's and 1840's. Along with it's astronomical alignments, America's Stonehenge continues to be one of the most fascinating archaeological discoveries of the century.

35. Stories
Myths from several Australian peoples, presented by a college student of archaeoastronomy. student web sites/Alex N Smith/abor
The aboriginal stories of creation, myths and legends about moral and natural issues, and fables are a remarkable group of talesfull of evocative, sometimes even surreal, imagery and deep observations on life. While no doubt these stories have been tainted by a Western viewpoint, they still represent a remarkable chance to understand even a little about cultures that lived for tens of thousands of years. What follows here is the beginning of an on-line collection of stories, taken from as many sources as possible and from as many different Aboriginal cultures as possible.

Ambruster and collaborator A.B. Hull (OCA Applied Optics, CA) presented a paper at the invitation-only Oxford 5 Archaeoastronomy Conference (Santa Fe, NM, 3-10 Aug. 1996) on their recent work on an early (18th century) Navajo site in Chaco Canyon, NM. This site provides the first solid evidence that the Navajo practiced horizon astronomy, i.e. , the use of rising or setting positions of the Sun on the horizon to mark a yearly calendar. They documented a compelling winter solstice sunrise (WSSR) alignment between a foreground, rock art-covered, boulder and a prominent feature on the distant horizon. After the sun rises in this notch, it proceeds, over the next 2-3 hours, to ascend along the sloped ridge of the foreground boulder, that is, the angle of the ridge happens to be the same as the rising sun's angle to the horizon, at this latitude. Also located were probable, but less dramatic, alignments to prominent horizon features at both Equinox and Summer solstice from two other rock-art covered boulders in the immediate vicinity. It is rarely possible to interpret rock art. However, on the WSSR boulder, there is a horned Sun Shield, as well as two drilled renditions of the traditional Navajo constellation for November (a part of Corvus) and at least one incidence of the traditional December constellation (part of Scorpius); both constellations rise heliacally in those months. Moreover, the rock involved with the summer solstice alignment is incised with corn plants, the agricultural staple of the Southwest.

37. Time-reckoning In Iceland
Presented as an effort to remedy the lack of interest in the history of science and archaeoastronomy in Iceland. In the 1991 Clive L.N. Ruggles edited, archaeoastronomy in the 1990s. Group D Publications, Loughborough, UK 6976.
Time-reckoning in Iceland before literacy Published in Clive L.N. Ruggles (ed.), 1991. Archaeoastronomy in the 1990s. Loughborough, UK: Group D Publications. Pp. 69-76. Introductory remark The history of science in Iceland is a field of study which has received little attention to date. Many of the fundamental works are old and outdated, and authors with basic scientific knowledge have been sadly absent from the arena. The present paper is a partial effort to remedy this situation. The Vikings Traditionally, the Vikings originating in Scandinavia in the early Middle Ages are associated with violence and brutal force. However, the views of modern scholars paint a less mono-chromatic picture (e.g. Foote and Wilson 1984; Jones 1986; 1990; Graham-Campbell 1989). The present paper relates to one aspect of this, namely the knowledge and science of the Vikings and their immediate successors in Iceland and other Scandinavian countries. Many of the activities of the Vikings required and produced knowledge of time-reckoning and of what we would nowadays classify as astronomy. For example, their extensive travelling and trade must have involved some knowledge of astronomy. The necessity of such knowledge is generally recognised in the case of coastal navigation, but also holds for inland travel through previously unknown areas, such as the vast lands of Eastern Europe. Inland travel and coastal navigation is one thing, but regular trans-oceanic traffic is quite another. Yet such traffic was required to support the Scandinavian settlement of Iceland and Greenland, around the years 900 and 1000 respectively, at a time when the people of Europe knew nothing of the compass or the sextant. Even with good luck the oceanic voyage would take about a week, and without it land might not be sighted for several weeks. The navigational methods used included both terrestrial and celestial observations (Einarsson 1970: 57-63; Schnall 1975, ch. 4; Marcus 1980: 100-18; McGrail 1989: 59-63). There is hardly any doubt that the knowledge written down on vellum in Iceland in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries derives to a high degree from these observations and this experience.

by Jose Barrios Garca In the 14-15th centuries Grand Canary and Tenerife were inhabited by Berber populations, called Canarians and Guanches. They presumably came from the nearby continent on different occasions between the first millennium BC and the first millennium AD. These populations remained relatively isolated until the European rediscovery of the Islands in late 13th century. At this time the population of each Island was about 40-60,000 inhabitants, sustaining a developed agricultural (barley, wheat) and stock raising (goats, sheep, pigs) economy. Written sources from c. 1300 AD on certify the arithmetical and calendrical activities of these groups. On this basis, I started the research on the mathematical and astronomical practices of these people that crystallized into my doctoral dissertation (editors note: congratulations to Jose for his recent defense of thesis at the University of La Laguna, Tenerife). For each Island the study considered: 1) the economical, social, political and religious organization of the Island 2) the written and archaeological evidence regarding numerical and calendrical activities 3) the economic and cultural context of the number systems and the calendars.

DEVORKIN (National Air and Space Museum, Washington), Jerzy DOBRZYCKI (Polish Academy of Sciences), DOUGLAS C. HEGGIE (Edinburgh), DAVID A. KING (Frankfurt), JOHN LANKFORD (Kansas State), G. E. R. Lloyd (Cambridge), J. D. NORTH (Groningen), OLAF PEDERSEN (Aarhus), DAVID PINGREE (Brown), F. RICHARD STEPHENSON (Durham), NOEL M. SWERDLOW (Chicago), ALBERT VAN HELDEN (Rice) EDITORIAL POLICY Archaeoastronomy and ethnoastronomy seek to investigate astronomical practice and celestial lore in human societies past and present. Such data are of considerable interest to archaeologists and anthropologists as well as to astronomers and historians of science. It follows that while many research articles in the two disciplines will be concerned with the hard evidence for, and the technicalities of, astronomical observations, others will be concerned more with the cultural context. With this balance in mind the editor of Archaeoastronomy wishes to encourage, alongside the sort of article already well familiar to its readers, the submission of contributions that are more concerned with the cultural context of celestial observations. SUBSCRIPTIONS (ISSN 0021-8286) Archaeoastronomy is usually published in August.
