The eight articles and dozens of photographs and drawings in this book introduce the reader to the ancient astronomers -- their observatories, their instruments, and their explorations of the awesome regularities (and shocking irregularities) that appear in the sky.The authors draw upon a wide range of disciplines -- history, archaeology, technology, even mythology in discussing their subjects. This book is one endeavor toward a reconstruction of the past of the human mind, using all available evidence: text, myth, spade; yet, there is a difference.
