LCAS Archeoastronomy

Several members of LCAS have had a long-term interest in Archeoastronomy, which is the study of ancient cultures and their use of the sky. In 1988, at the request of the National Park Service, LCAS sent a team to analyze the Tenabo site in central New Mexico for possible astronomical significance.

(Note that the Tenabo site is on private land. Therefore the exact location of the site is not being published.)

Read the report submitted to the National Park Service.

Review an informal description of this trip (with photographs of the site.)

Our work was also written up in the January 1989 issue of Astronomy Magazine, pages 16-17.
