Description: Find out how three ingenious ancient societies read the messages of the night sky

Many ancient societies commanded an elaborate grasp of the movements of the sun, moon, stars, and planets -- using little or no technology. They saw the sky as an interconnected realm of the natural and spiritual world. Acclaimed professor Anthony Aveni, one of the "founding fathers" of the study of ancient astronomy, brings to light new findings about how three ancient cultures read the skies. He surveys the findings of the past ten years and delves into the beliefs and astronomy of the three cultures, offering startling new conclusions about the hieroglyphic writing known as the "Mayan Code", how the Incan capital city of Cuzco was built as a vast observatory, and why Stonehenge was constructed in ancient England.
-- Includes a chapter on "naked eye" observing, so readers can learn to read the night sky and see the same phenomena observed by the ancient cultures
-- A selection of the Book of the Month Club, Quality Paperback, History BookClub and One Spirit
