Description

Written by leading specialists, the papers in this volume explore the newly developed interdisciplinary field of archaeoastronomy. Their value is enhanced by extensive citation of data for that part of America north of Panama. They provide an excellent introduction to the growing field of archaeoastronomy. Three broad, interlocking topics are discussed: early American rock art in the southwestern United States, astronomical orientations of buildings, and native American calendars.
