Astronomy and Ancient Cultures of North America Sold Out
Wednesdays, 6 - 7:30 pm
June 19 - July 24

Human beings have observed celestial phenomena and incorporated them into religious, economic, social, and political life for millenia. This seminar explores some of the relationships of ancient astronomy and cultural behavior evident at archaeological sites in North America, including medicine wheels, Hopewell earthworks, the great population center of Cahokia, and Fajada Butte in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico. Skidi Pawnee cosmology will also be discussed as an important example of ethnoastronomy. Six sessions, $170.
