This is a nice and short course, giving you an overview of what the ancient people thought about the skies, and what kind of connections they had. You'll learn about hierophany, ways of building so that it is a certain manifestation of sacred, for example, sun rays will penetrate the building once a year only and lighten up something. There will be talk about Romans, Greeks, Egyptians, Mayas, Inkas etc., and historical events will be described. It is not a thorough course, but it gives a nice motivation for further research. I'd like to see possible sequels with specific topics, such as Egyptian archaeoastronomy, Mayan archaeoastronomy etc. - I'm sure I'd learn a lot.
