The heavens, we are taught, have always inspired awe, tradition, even salvation. Why? What did our ancestors see there?
Humanity, we are taught, has always looked to the heavens for inspiration, solace, even salvation. Why? What did our ancestors see there? And how will we, in this enlightened, hi-tech age, benefit from understanding their ancient teachings? Jansen Estrup's Tales of a Clear, Dark Night is a stunning inquiry into the archeology, mythical and cosmological lore, and their relationship to the persistence of violence in modern socieites. Asking questions until he has answers, the author masterfully weaves together threads of the past and present into a gripping read.
