Book Description

Long before astronomy was a science, humans used the stars to mark time, navigate, organize planting, and dramatize myths. In fact, some lunar calendars may date back over 30,000 years. From Stonehenge to Angkor Wat, many of the world's most famous ancient monuments owe their existence to humanity's mastery of and reverence for the night sky.
