About the book

Astronomies and Cultures

edited by Clive Ruggles and Nicholas Saunders

This is one of two volumes arising from the “Oxford III” international symposium on archaeoastronomy held in St Andrews, Scotland, in 1990. It contains 10 thematic articles, mostly based on invited keynote talks at the conference, chosen to illustrate the broad scope, diversity and cultural significance of studies in archaeoastronomy at the time. Several of them are still quoted today.

The companion volume is Archaeoastronomy in the 1990s.
