Astronomy, Cosmology and Landscape

edited by Clive Ruggles, Frank Prendergast and Tom Ray

This SEAC volume includes a typically wide range of papers covering themes from theoretical foundations to survey methodology; from Palaeolithic alignments to modern folk traditions; and from Aztec constellations to early Irish mythology.

Topics covered include the later prehistoric stone circles and rows of Ulster, pre-Hispanic rock art inscriptions in the Canary Islands, orientation traditions in Minoan and Mycenaean Crete, and the limitations of the surviving evidence concerning Greek and Roman astronomy.
