The story of how a landscape professional and an amateur astronomer came to concentrate on archaeoastronomy. Inspired by the many questions passers-by asked while he was surveying a megalithic stone circle, he decided to try and develop the potential of Stellarium, a computer planetarium, to answer some of those questions
R Bartosz used the magic of an astronomy software to help focus on what our ancestors could observe of the night sky and how the knowledge accumulated became infused into the culture of civilisations around the world. In his talk From Landscape to Skyscape and Down to that Boundary Between he will talk about Stellarium, a planetarium for all seasons and all reasons for anyone interested in astronomy. A large part of the talk will look at the start that has been made to help bring astronomy closer to the public, and indeed professionals such as archaeologists. The only qualification you need, is curiosity! This talk will be followed by a brief introduction on what is visible in this month's sky.
