Deep Astronomy Live! The First Astronomers?
Naturalist and author Bernie Taylor presents an origin to modern astronomy in European Paleolithic caves from 34,000 years ago that connects with global myths of hunter-gatherers and the ancients in the Mediterranean region. Taylor proposes that astronomy was developed to pass on timeless myths and cultural traditions among prehistoric hunter-gathers. He will explore deep sources to Ptolemy's Almagest and the hero's journey monomyth of Joseph Campbell as popularized in the Star Wars movie series, and test the precession of the equinoxes against the Paleolithic record.
