Astro-archaeology has brought remarkable new revelations about the ancient sciences. This ‘little history’, first published in 1977 and widely held to be the classic work on the subject, charts its controversial development from Stukeley in the 18th century to modern times, with a wide selection of plans, drawings and photographs from early and modern sources.
Interest in astro-archaeology has now expanded worldwide, bringing in its wake explosive new insights into the mystical sciences of antiquity that have left their marks all over the globe, from stone circles and ley-lines in Europe to Egypt’s pyramids and the ceques of Cuzco. John Michell analyses these recent findings and concludes his thought-provoking book by summing up the present state of research in the field, and looking at the exciting prospects for astro-archaeology in the future.
