TitleAfrican cultural astronomy : current archaeoastronomy and ethnoastronomy research in Africa
Author(s)Jarita C. Holbrook;R. Thebe Medupe;Johnson O. Urama
PublicationBerlin?, Springer, 2008.
Description1 online resource (viii, 260 p.) : ill., maps
Abstract Note"Astronomy is the science of studying the sky using telescopes and light collectors such as photographic plates or CCD detectors. However, people have always studied the sky and continue to study the sky without the aid of instruments - this is the realm of cultural astronomy. This is the first scholarly collection of articles focused on the cultural astronomy of Africans. It weaves together astronomy, anthropology, and Africa. The volume includes African myths and legends about the sky, alignments to celestial bodies found at archaeological sites and at places of worship, rock art with celestial imagery, and scientific thinking revealed in local astronomy traditions including ethnomathematics and the creation of calendars."--Jacket

TitleComet/asteroid impacts and human society : an interdisciplinary approach
Author(s)Peter T. Bobrowsky (ed.);Hans Rickman () (ed.)
Edition1st ed
PublicationBerlin, Springer, 2007.
Description1 online resource (xxvi, 546 p.) : ill. (some col.), maps (some col.)
Abstract NoteIn 1908, an atmospheric explosion in northern Siberia released energy equivalent to 15 Mton of TNT. Can a comparable or larger NEO affect us again? When the next NEO strikes Earth will it be large enough to destroy a city? Will the climate change significantly? Can archaeology and anthropology provide insights into the expected cultural responses with NEO interactions? Does society have a true grasp of the actual risks involved? Is the Great Depression a good model for the economic collapse that could follow a NEO catastrophe? This volume provides a necessary link between various disciplines and comet/asteroid impacts
