In addition, he is a founding member of ISAAC (the International Society for Archaeoastronomy and Astronomy in Culture), an organization promoting a professional standard in this interdisciplinary study that all too often suffers from spectacular claims involving more enthusiasm than evidence. For the past 18 years, he has worked in collaboration with archaeologists to study the Inca and their uses of astronomy. Recently, he and I discussed his work and the underpinnings of solid archaeoastronomical research. Why did people study astronomy?

  • The meaning of the two largest objects is uncertain: the Sun and the Moon or rather the Full Moon and a lunar crescent - or even phases of a lunar eclipse? Astronomers favor the latter view: It probably would have been too big an act of abstract thinking for our bronze age artist to visualize the Sun in a sky full of stars.
  • Seven of those stars form a tight pattern, the only one on the whole disk. While this could equally well mean the Plejades and the Praesepe star cluster or the small constellation Delphinus, preference is given to the Plejades: In contrast to the other interpretations this asterism plays a significant role in ancient texts.

    Traveling through Southeast Colorado, one expects to see flat grasslands and prairie terrain. But the Purgatoire River flowing east from the Rocky Mountains has created an expansive valley traversed by a profusion of canyons and sub-canyons. These canyons contain ancient records of earlier inhabitants carved into the rock. Petroglyphs at hundreds of different sites can be found in a 10,000 square mile area south of the Arkansas River and more are being discovered every year. The diversity of rock art styles in the Purgatoire Valley of southeastern Colorado indicate that many different peoples inhabited this land at different times. Many different styles of petroglyphs , or rock carvings, are found in the area, including abstract, representational, calendrical, parallel lines, and what may be epigraphic inscriptions in Old World scripts. Petroglyphs were created by pecking or abrading images into flat rock surfaces with worked stone, bone, or antler. Rock art styles found in Southeast Colorado include 100 year old cowboy pictures and writing, 400-year-old Plains Indian petroglyphs, a 1,000-year-old pictorial style, and a 4,000-year-old abstract style. Modern-day graffiti also is present at many sites. The proximity of the area to Folsom, New Mexico means that even earlier inhabitants of North America, creators of the famous "Folsom points" more than 8,000 years ago may have also used the Purgatoire River valleys as hunting grounds.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Archaeoastronomy (also spelled Archeoastronomy ) is, as the name implies, the combination of astronomical and archaeological studies. Specifically, it covers the intersection between the two. One aspect of this is the use of the historical record prior to the genesis of the modern astronomical discipline in order to study past astronomical events. It also may involve the use of astronomical knowledge and extrapolation to further our understanding of the historical record. The two disciplines interact constructively. An example of the first sort of archaeoastronomy is the study of the extensive records of ancient China for references to "guest stars". "Guest stars," or star-like objects which appeared in the night sky, were of great interest to the observers of ancient China and were often dutifully recorded. These events have been associated with many transitory phenomena, such as comets and, particularly

    Study of rupestral engravings in Italy. NEWS 95 - Symposium 1A: New approaches Archaeo-astronomical hypotheses on some ligurian engravings
    Abstract. Some Ligurian engravings are oriented towards the four cardinal points. A rock like an altar and with engravings of the Middle Ages on its surface is set in a row between the "Ciappo de Cunche" - a large rocky outcrop "covered" with engravings and located in an area frequented during the Bronze Age (and before, also) - and the equinoctial sunset. It seems also that from the same altar rock it is possible to see the sunset behind a rocky saddleback in front of it in the summer solstice. The author illustrates these engravings and suggests some hypotheses about their alignments and bearings.
    I. Marcello Dalbuono's Stone Photo 1. View of stone complex, discovered by Marcello Dalbuono, taken with a 35 mm. lens. At the centre is the rock wall, with the plaque to the right and saddle at the centre. The Pian dei Corsi can be seen behind the saddle, behind which the Sun effectively sets at the summer solstice. In front of the rock wall, between the bushes, there can be seen: the stone with the greater sequence to the right; the squared stone without engravings at the centre; the stone with the minor sequence to the left. The sheer rock with the two cross-shapes of fig. 1/c - d is hidden behind the wall, at the height of the plaque. The Ciappo de Cunche can be found behind the observer, not in vision.
