• #17 - Professor Marc Frincu. Ancient Astronomy in the Armenian Highlands

    1 GIU 2024 · Professor Marc Frincu is an authority in distributed systems, big data, smart grids, astronomy, and archaeoastronomy. Marc is also the secretary of the European Society for Astronomy in Culture and vice-president of the Romanian Society of Cultural Astronomy. In this episode Marc guides us deep into the Armenian Highlands and relives his extraordinary discoveries of Bronze Age astronomical devices. He discusses the functionality of mysterious spiral and cup-shaped petroglyphs, and delineates crumbling stone structures with starburst alignments to surrounding burial sites and mountaintops. We also dive into Yazidi cosmology, and Mark outlines a north to south Bronze Age meridian line defined by a cone of stones framing the circumpolar stars. And seeking meaning, we discuss ancient perception of the north sky and how it was perhaps associated with notions of mortality, and infinity.

  • #16 - Ian Hinton. Medieval Church Secrets: Investigating Freemason Alignment Theories

    21 MAG 2024 · 18th-century Freemasons believed medieval church architects in England oriented their buildings with the azimuth of sunrise on the day of the patronal saint. However, having spent over ten years exploring the English countryside with a compass Ian Hinton surveyed the alignments of over 2000 rural churches and his work thoroughly debunks this romantic masonic notion. In this episode Ian discusses the hidden complexities of church building, revealing a suite of masonic secrets and myths. And after explaining why leylines are “utter nonsense,” Ian reveals how his database of alignments suggests changing weather and climate patterns were key factors in the orientation of English churches.

  • #14 - Dr. Philip Tonner. Heidegger, Dwelling and Prehistoric Metaphysics

    2 MAG 2024 · With a background in philosophy, archaeology, and education Dr. Philip Tonner has taught at a number of Universities and secondary schools across the UK, and he is currently a Lecturer at the University of Glasgow’s School of Education. Regarding his recent book - Dwelling: Heidegger, Archaeology, Mortality, one reviewer wrote “There really isn’t any directly comparable book – it is unique,” and in many ways so too is the following conversation. In this episode we discuss the Phenomenology of archaeology in the context of palaeolithic and Neolithic cultures. Philip shares Heidegger’s work on “Dwelling,” a lifestyle in which agents were consumed by the practical needs of day to day living, where the modern thresholds between mind and body, or thought and action, were nonexistent. This discussion presents an enthralling liminal voyage into ancient mind and cognition through the perspectives of Heidegger, and the interpretations and expansions of Dr. Philip Tonner.

    25 APR 2024 · Dr. Richard Friedman is an expert in Geographic Information Systems [GIS] who integrates aerial technologies with remote sensing and ground surveying at archaeological sites. In this episode we return to the Chaco Canyon in the US southwest where Richard outlines the astronomical, geographical and cosmological aspects of this vast assembly of tracks, roads, ways, sacred structures and underlying alignments. Richard explains that the monumental landscape not only reflects aspects of the night sky, and the cycles of the Sun and moon, but it also served as a complex map of the perceived underworld. Developing on our study into the controversial Chaco Meridian, which was delineated by Professor Stephen Lekson in Episode 02, Richard describes a series of T-shaped stone doorways, or thresholds, at Casas Grandes which might serve as architectural evidence for the arrival of a band of elite Chacoans migrating southwards from Aztec Ruins in Chaco Canyon. https://www.spreaker.com/show/history-fuzz to the History Fuzz podcast and never miss an episode For $5/month History Fuzz members get early, ad-free access to new episodes, exclusive video content, documentaries, articles and maps.https://historyfuzz.com/podcast https://historyfuzz.com/contact questions, requests, criticisms, suggestions and feedback History Fuzz Onlinehttps://historyfuzz.com/podcast :https://www.instagram.com/ashleycowie/ :https://www.facebook.com/AshleyLambieCowie :https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4LNLDfv3OvcQZhbBwXkJiQ/ Join the History Fuzz team exploring and filming inhttps://historyfuzz.com/colombia All television and media enquiries please contact Eric Radin andhttps://www.akatalent.com/ To advertise your product or service on this podcast, or to discuss show sponsorship options, please contact Ashley Cowie byhttps://historyfuzz.com Become a supporter of this podcast:https://www.spreaker.com/podcast/history-fuzz--5975618/support.

  • #09 - Professor Helen Benigni and Barbara Carter. Paleolithic pantheons and astronomical goddesses

    26 MAR 2024 · Professor Helen Benigni and Barbara Carter co-authored the best-selling book “The Myth of the Year, Returning to the Origin of the Druid Calendar”. Exploring where Celtic and Greek astronomy influenced mythology the authors presented academically rigorous interpretations of the Coligny calendar discovered in France, and the sacred Eleusian calendar of ancient Greece. Exploring where the night sky meets ancient mythology in this far-reaching episode you’ll learn how lunar and venetian astronomy inspired ancient builders to monumentalize key stages in the cycles of the moon and Venus. And after delineating the archaeoastronomy of Celtic and Roman temple architecture the researchers outline some of the esoteric aspects of Bronze Age calendrical rituals associated with the moon and Venus. Illuminating ancestral knowledge through the study of constellations, and presenting supporting artifacts from Ice Age Europe, Helen and Barbara systematically unveil the origins of seasonal myths, revealing the deities of a lesser-known Palaeolithic pantheon. ---Professor Helen Benigni Professional Bio. https://www.dewv.edu/staff/helen-benigni/--- https://www.spreaker.com/show/history-fuzz to the History Fuzz podcast and never miss an episode For $5/month History Fuzz members get early, ad-free access to new episodes, exclusive video content, documentaries, articles and maps.https://historyfuzz.com/podcast https://historyfuzz.com/contact questions, requests, criticisms, suggestions and feedback History Fuzz Onlinehttps://historyfuzz.com/podcast :https://www.instagram.com/ashleycowie/ :https://www.facebook.com/AshleyLambieCowie :https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4LNLDfv3OvcQZhbBwXkJiQ/ Join the History Fuzz team exploring and filming inhttps://historyfuzz.com/colombia All television and media enquiries please contact Eric Radin andhttps://www.akatalent.com/ To advertise your product or service on this podcast, or to discuss show sponsorship options, please contact Ashley Cowie byhttps://historyfuzz.com Become a supporter of this podcast:https://www.spreaker.com/podcast/history-fuzz--5975618/support.

    12 MAR 2024 · Having served almost three decades as an archaeologist, explorer, and instructor Dr. Edwin Barnhart, referred to herein as Ed, is Director of the Maya Exploration Center and host of the ArchaeoEd podcast.  As a distinguished Fellow of the Explorers Club Ed has published numerous papers and he’s featured in over a dozen documentaries about the astronomy and architecture of ancient civilizations. Ed’s aerial fieldwork in Northwestern Belize led to the discovery of the ancient city of Ma'ax Na, which is recognised as a significant achievement in Classic Maya Period research. He also directed the Palenque Mapping Project, a groundbreaking three-year initiative documenting over 1100 hitherto unknown maya structures in Palenque. In this episode Ed explains that many of the associations presented between Maya temple architecture and the cycles of Venus are figments of researchers' imaginations, and he replaces modern-myths with facets of Maya cosmology and lunar astronomy. We also discuss Maya, Muisca and Khmer reverence for the sun at its zenith, and how certain latitudes were made sacred and embroiled in cylindrical rites and rituals.
