WHEN Thursday 15 January 2015
An obsession with the workings of the sky unites the world’s ancient peoples. In Latin America, remarkable edifices that linked the heavens with ritual beliefs among the population survive. In this entertaining and fully illustrated talk, astronomer Fred Watson visits just a few of these, from the Cholula Pyramid of the Aztecs to the extraordinary Nazca lines of southern Peru.
