"With its stunning array of diverse approaches, from the Maya Dresden Codex to Hawaiian astronomy to the alignment of Medieval English churches . . . this volume presents a series of important articles written by eminent scholars in the field of cultural astronomy. In terms of edited volumes, it is the most important contribution to the field in recent memory."
-Grant Aylesworth, University of New Brunswick
"The series of papers necessarily utilize a diverse combination of methodological and interdisciplinary approaches to interpret past social practices related to astronomy. This book will be of interest not only to archaeologists working in Mesoamerica but also to anthropologists who "seek to understand how perceptions of the sky have influenced, and can influence, human thought and action" (p. 12)."
-Reiko Ishihara, The Americas
"Summing up: Highly Recommended."
