7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Allan R Mathany on December 10, 1999
Format: Paperback
Great book for Astronomy history buffs. The Mayans were some of the great astronomers of the past and this book details the methods and briefs. While the book leans to the textbook side, thus the 4 rating rather than a 5 star, it is very readable. I liked the decoding of the Mayan Gliffs. The book shows numerous gliffs and provides written intreputations. A Mayan astronomer, for example, is shown sitting with his eye reaching out and grasping a star. The book also details the Mayan calendar and how they determined rather precisely the orbital period of Venus and other heavenly bodies.
The book is great for anyone wanting a better understanding of anicent astronomical methods and a further understanding of the Mayan people.
