LINKS TO WEB SITES OF RELATED INTEREST

This is not an all-inclusive list of web sites that address the topics
covered in The Sacred Landscape, but it does include my favourites. I have made a deliberate effort to embrace opinions from a wide spectrum of academic and occult perspectives. Unless a page is described as "skeptical" or "debunking." it can be assumed to promote a positive attitude toward the subject matter it addresses.

These links are sorted topically.
For geographically-sorted links to pages on
sacred site tourism,

  • ARCHEOASTRONOMY and ETHNOASTRONOMY


  • Aboriginal Star Knowledge: Native American Astronomy
    The top layer of a quirky but well illustrated introduction to Native American star-lore and archaeoastronomical observatory sites. (Paula Giese)
  • America's Stonehenge home page
    This is the home page for the controversial New Hampshire site which its owners claim is a 4,000 year old archaeoastronomical observatory -- and scholars declare to be an elaborate hoax. In either case, it makes a pretty nice roadside attraction. (America's Stonehenge)
  • Archaeoastronomy, Ethnoastronomy, History of Astronomy
    An essential reference site. (Working Group for the History of Astronomy in the Astronomische Gesellschaft)
  • The Center for Archaeoastronomy
    An academic site on archaeoastronomy which contains a wealth of information, including online versions of articles from the "Archaeoastronomy and Ethnoastronomy Newsletter," valuable to the casual and the scholarly reader alike. (John B. Carlson, David S. P. Dearborn, Tania Ruiz, University of Maryland)
  • How the Shaman Stole the Moon
    William Calvin's 1991 archaeoastronomy book ("a dozen ways of predicting eclipses -- those paleolithic strategies for winning fame and fortune by convincing people that you're (ahem) on speaking terms with whoever runs the heavens") is partially available on the web. (William Calvin, University of Washington)
  • The Orion Mystery
    Robert Bauval's controversial theory that the Pyramids at Giza are positionally correlated to the constellation Orion (Dave Goode and Henry Ritson)
  • Symbolic Messengers of Medieval Man
    This illustrated online book shows how actual astronomical events were portrayed in the imagery on late Classic and early Medieval coinage. It will be of interest to archaeoastronomers and art historians alike because although the eaxmples are exclusively numismatic, it serves as a model for thinking about other ways in which astronomical events have been recorded in seemingly non-"scientific" formats. (Marshall Faintich)

    VERNACULAR SACRED SITES
    (Note: These links are only to web sites that illustrate and catalogue numerous vernacular sacred sites. For links to individual sacred sites, sorted geographically, see my own Web Sites of Interest to Sacred Site Tourists.)

  • The Kooks Museum
    A mess of a site, this mish-mash lumps pages on builders of vernacular sacred sites with pages on conspiracy theorists, race-hate mongers, schizophrenics, UFO believers, art-car designers, and religious cultists. The overall tone is glib and condescending, but the archive does provide photos of quite a few vernacular sacred sites in the United States. You can safely ignore the purported biographical details on the lives and motivations of the builders: they are scanty, inaccurate, or even erroneous. You can also read a letter of protest i wrote to the site maintainer and her associates regarding their rude and careless treatment of the Watts Towers and Simon Rodia. (Donna Kossy et al)
  • Roadside Art Online: Environments
    This is an extensive site devoted to roadside art, including signage, ruined buildings, and "environments," some of which are vernacular sacred sites. The author is respectful, eclectic, and a very good photographer. There is not much text, but MANY stunning pictures here, plus links to other interesting web sites. This one has my highest recommendation, (William Swislow)

  • Alexandria on the Web
    A growing set of links to web sites on sacred geometry, sacred architecture, archaeoastronomy, and cosmology, as well as to pages on the Alexandria Journal, Phanes Press, and the Alexandria Summer Institue courses. (David Fideler)
  • Archaeology Resources on the Web
    A convenient page of annotated archaeology links maintained by the same folks who produce the fabulous megalithic Stone Pages web site. (Paola Arosio and Diego Meozzi)
  • Cult Archaeology, Pseudoscience, and Creationism Topics
    A meta-link page that leads to further link-pages featuring ancient astronauts, the lost tribes of Israel, Earth upheavals, and the like. The tone is disrespectful in the extreme and it is unfortunate that religious groups are treated with the same snide tone directed toward lunatic pseudo-archaeologists. Still, this is a good place to start if you want to read work by the skeptical debunkers of Velikovsky, Sitchin, von Daniken, or Hancock. (Drs. Larry J. Zimmerman and Richard A. Fox, Jr., University of South Dakota Anthropology Department)
  • Egypt Links
    The most complete link-site i have found compiling web pages on Ancient Egypt. (Greg Reeder)
  • Fringe Archaeology
    A strongly skeptical page, "Fringe Archaeology" is bent on debunking hoaxes, but it avoids being mean-spirited while providing links to genuinely interesting sites on off-beat archaeological topics ranging from pyramidology and ley lines to Atlantis, crop cicles, and the Shroud of Turin. (P. M. Van Leusen)

    Links to more than 200 web sites in the fields of ancient history, archaeoastronomy, astronomy, and fringe-archaeology. (Peter Szabo)
