Secrets of the Stones: the Science of Archaeoastronomy

I had a wonderful chat with Julie Vural, who posted this piece about archaeoastronomy and culture on her blog The Dazzling Universe. It covers alignments in Cornwall and further afield as well as connections through the sky through objects such as the wonderful Alaca Höyük dagger. Which is one of the few examples of worked iron objects from prehistory with a meteorite origin. Anyway its well worth a read – the link is above.
