Mysteries and Discoveries of Archaeoastronomy: From Giza to Easter Island by Giulio Magli

"In the new authoritative study of the growing discipline of archaeoastronomy, Mysteries and Discoveries of Archaeoastronomy: From Giza to Easter Island, Professor Guilio Magli asks, 'Was it an attempt to reproduce the sky on Earth? To bring down the power of the stars to where they could see it, worship it, and use it?'

"The motives of ancient civilisations have often been misconstrued, maligned, or even dismissed. Magli shows the limitations of orthodox archaeology in relation to astronomically based artefacts and examines what led the ancients to construct such magnificent structures as the city of Teotihuacan in the Mexico Valley, the Ceremonial Centre of Chaco Canyon in the United States, the Avebury stone circle in Great Britain, and the great pyramids in Egypt."
