Carnival of Space # 481 Here @ Links Through Space


Welcome to the Carnival of Space # 481.




Here at Links Through Space we introduce a series of 4 articles on archaeoastronomy. This series is titled Echoes of Archaeoastronomy and is part of The Ancient Astronomy Series. You may have read the first part: The Age of Astronomy, this is the second part.

Echoes of Archaeoastronomy has inspirations from a few trips I took the the Moroccan Sahara desert in 2014 and 2016.
A visit to a rock art site in the middle of the desert in Morocco and a site in a little village in the high mountains of the Atlas Mountain range. From these travels came out a 1 year research on a connection of astronomy to the ancient civilizations before us. When was the first time that ancient people used the knowledge of astronomy? When did the science of astronomy started?

Please read the first article of this series. Echoes of Archaeoastronomy: A brief introduction to Archaeoastronomy.

Feel free to comment and share these articles if you like them. This is part of the public outreach in astronomy by Astronomy club Toutatis, Kustavi, Finland.

And now.... (drum rolling)
