IN SEARCH OF ANCIENT ASTRONOMIES
Winner of the American Institute of Physics-U.S. Steel Foundation Award for Best Science Writing, 1978.

In this exciting, lavishly illustrated book, the author and several others survey the new scientific discipline of archaeoastronomy, the study of the astronomies of ancient and prehistoric times. Research in this area has led to astonishing factual conclusions about the uses of the great monuments of the distant past: Stonehenge and other Neolithic structures of Europe: the cliffs, mounds, and "medicine wheels" of the North American Indians: the temples of the Maya and Aztec: and the pyramids of Egypt.
