[Past Project] Constellations in the Sky

The field of ethnoastronomy is about uncovering the lost knowledge that ancient peoples had about the skies around them. Both the Inca and the Aztecs interpreted the world around them through the lens of religion. As anthropologists have discovered through fieldwork and primary sources, the knowledge these peoples acquired from their observations and calculations informed not only their agrarian lifestyles, it contributed to the growth of their respective civilizations as well.
