Archaeoastronomy Egypt - Giulio Magli Official Site

Most of the "wonders" of our ancient past have come down to us without written information as to their scope, significance or design. However, there can be no doubt as to the interest of the builders of most of these monuments in the celestial cycles. Bearing witness to this are the stones themselves, which show clearly that astronomy was integrated as a key ingredient into the design. The aim of this website is to give a glimpse to how Archaeoastronomy can be used as a key to explore the relationship between sky, landscape, and power at times and places where it can still and spectacularly seen in action. This, in particular, holds for a very special place on this planet: Egypt.
