Ancient astronomy : an encyclopedia of cosmologies and myth by C. L. N Ruggles( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Ancient Astronomy: An Encyclopedia of Cosmologies and Myth, one of the world's leading archaeoastronomers offers the reader a number of ways to approach the question of ancient people's relationship to the sky." "Ancient Astronomy brings a unique authoritative perspective to an area too often left to speculation and sensationalism. It provides readers not only with critical assessments of a range of facts and theories, but also with the concepts and tools to critically examine new evidence and claims for themselves. The book is equally suitable for the general reader, subject specialist, or anyone eager to distinguish sound evidence and key themes of archaeoastronomy from unsupported speculation and common misperceptions."--Résumé de l'éditeur
Astronomy in prehistoric Britain and Ireland by C. L. N Ruggles( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do prehistoric stone monuments in Britain and Ireland incorporate deliberate astronomical alignments, and if so, what is their purpose and meaning? Here, for the first time this topic, a subject of long-standing controversy between astronomers and archaeologists, is approached from a perspective that incorporates both disciplines. The author establishes the importance of studies of astronomy in the context of broader questions of cosmology, ideology, and cognition that are of central interest to prehistorians at the beginning of the twenty-first century. He also makes clear the necessity of multi-disciplinary perspectives in tackling problems of this nature

Formal methods in standards : a report from the BCS Working Group by C. L. N Ruggles( Book )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report was produced by the Formal Methods in Standards Working Group of the British Computer Society. This group was set up to promote the practical application of formal methods in improving the quality of standards used in computer systems and software. The report identifies issues which relate to the introduction of formal methods into the development and expression of standards, and offers general guidelines on the use of formal methods for those working in different standards areas
Archaeoastronomy and ethnoastronomy : building bridges between cultures : proceedings of the 278th Symposium of the International Astronomical Union and 'Oxford IX' International Symposium on Archaeoastronomy, held in Lima, Peru, January 5-14, 2011/ edited by Clive L.N. Ruggles by International Astronomical Union( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

IAU Symposium 278, the ninth in the series of 'Oxford' conferences on cultural astronomy, presents a diverse range of disciplinary perspectives on a set of problems that continue to raise exciting and challenging new research questions and promote vigorous debate. It extends discussions about cultural astronomy beyond the global community of 'Western' academics to focus on the ethnoastronomy and archaeoastronomy of South America, Central and North America, and elsewhere. The first IAU Symposium devoted to this topic not only discusses new discoveries and interpretations but also considers broader issues of mutual interest across disciplines in cultural astronomy, such as field methodology and social theory. This volume is valuable not just to researchers working in these fields, but to anyone who takes an interest in the protection of astronomical heritage and the preservation of dark skies

Handbook of Archaeoastronomy and Ethnoastronomy by C. L. N Ruggles( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How human communities interpret what they perceive in the sky is vital in fulfilling humankind's most basic need to comprehend the universe it inhabits, both from a modern scientific perspective and from countless other cultural standpoints, extending right back to early prehistory. Archaeoastronomy, which is concerned with cultural perceptions and understandings of astronomical phenomena, is a rich cross-disciplinary field. The central aim of 'Handbook of Archaeoastronomy' is to provide a reliable source for theory, method, interpretation and best practices that will give a definitive picture of the state of the art research in this field for serious scholars regardless of the discipline(s) in which they are qualified. It will be equally suitable for those already contributing to the field and those interested in entering it. Also included are studies in ethnoastronomy, which is concerned with contemporary practices related to astronomy, particularly among modern indigenous societies. A major part of this MRW is comprised of a set of wide-ranging archaeoastronomical case studies both geographically and through time, stretching right back to Palaeolithic days, and also in terms of the types of human society and nature of their astronomical ideas and practices. However, these are chosen in order to best illuminate broader issues and themes, rather than to attempt, for example, to provide systematic coverage of recent 'discoveries.' Thematic articles cover general themes such as cosmologies, calendars, navigation, orientations and alignments, and ancient perceptions of space and time. They also highlight various aspects of the social context of astronomy (its relationship to social power, warfare, etc) and how we interpret astronomical practices within the framework of conceptual approaches. There are also discussions of broad issues such as ethnocentrism, nationalism, and astronomical dating. The 'methods and practices' articles cover topics from field methodology and survey procedures to social theory, as well as providing broad definitions and explanations of key concepts. We are also including a number of 'disciplinary perspectives' on approaches to archaeoastronomy written by leading figures in the constituent fields. These articles cover material that, generally speaking, would be familiar to graduates in the relevant discipline but, critically, not so to those with different backgrounds
