Ancient Astronomy: An Encyclopedia of Cosmologies and Myth draws on archaeological evidence and oral traditions to reveal how prehistoric humans perceived the skies and celestial phenomena. With over 200 entries, it offers a number of ways to approach ancient astronomy, from key examples and case studies worldwide (Stonehenge; Mexican and Egyptian pyramids; Chaco Canyon, New Mexico; the Nazca lines in Peru) to general themes (cosmologies, calendars, ancient ideas of space and time, origin myths), to fundamental concepts and methods (how the sky has changed over the centuries, how to survey a site), and to the field's most frequently asked questions (How did ancient peoples navigate the ocean using the stars? How does astrology relate to ancient astronomy? Can ancient sites be dated astronomically?)

Princeton University Press | Astronomy & Astrophysics | November 17, 2015 | ISBN-10: 0691165068 | 320 pages | pdf | 11.65 mb

Author: Frebel, Anna
Astronomers study the oldest observable stars in the universe in much the same way that archaeologists study ancient artifacts on Earth. Here, Anna Frebel—who is credited with discovering several of the oldest and most primitive stars using the world’s largest telescopes—takes readers into the far-flung depths of space and time to provide a gripping firsthand account of the cutting-edge science of stellar archaeology.
The Cygnus Mystery: Unlocking the Ancient Secret of Life's Origins in the Cosmos

The Cygnus Mystery: Unlocking the Ancient Secret of Life's Origins in the Cosmos
Language: English | AZW3 / EPUB / MOBI | ISBN-10: 1906787557 | 2010 | 384 pages | 7 MB / 31 MB / 6 MB

The Cygnus Constellation holds the key to proving that life originated in the heavens—and will ultimately return there. Best-selling author Andrew Collins has uncovered an astronomy that is about 17,000 years old, with standing stones, temples, and monuments across the globe oriented towards Cygnus’s stars. He also found that the use of deep caves by Palaeolithic man led to the rise of religious thought and the belief in life’s stellar origins. Now modern-day technology has confirmed that high-energy particles come from a binary star known as Cygnus X3. Ancient people knew what science is finally verifying: that the DNA of life came originally from deep space.
