    Summary: 
    Since the dawn of civilization, humans have sought inspiration and guidance in the night sky. "Celestial Geometry" explores the achievements of ancient astronomers at over 60 archaeological sites, from European stone circles like Stonehenge to the pyramids of Egypt and Central America, the medicine wheels of North America, the carved monoliths of Easter Island, and lesser-known structures like the sun clock of Goseck. Combining myths and legends with modern science, this illustrated book is a celebration of human curiosity and creativity.
