The Culture of Astronomy

ASTRONOMY is the Holy Grail in the Sky, The Tree of Knowledge, and The Key to All Mystery. Ancient Sky-watching created 'the scientific method' of observation in a structured, calibrated setting of wooden and stone circles -  where recordation, analysis, repeated review, and continual observation led to the development of theories, canons, and conclusions -the scientific method.

The need for extensive and accurate record-keeping of celestial events led to the creation and development of numbers, symbols, geometry, and written language.

The Culture of Astronomy is the only work that contains: astro-mythology, astro-history, astro-physics, astrology, philosophy of astronomy, cosmological worldview -including Cycles of the Great Global Catastrophies, The Great Ages of the Zodiac; and detailed analysis of Vedic, Indian, Khmer, Andean and Maya astronomy. We have traveled to five continents to physically examine ancient astronomical observatories.

Everything that we see and experience rotates in cycles. Nothing travels in a straight line for long.The Milankovitch cycles of Earth, Sun, Moon, and planets combine to create daily, monthly, annular, and long-term changes to our globe and its atmosphere. Astronomy has a powerful impact upon our lives. All culture and the disciplines of science, physics, law, and numbers come from ancient astronomy.

These special places brought inspiration and cures to ancient people. Likewise, the locations were the meeting places for government, law courts, religious ritual, business, and social transactions. Our examination unfolds the splendid worldview, philosophy, and astronomy of the ancient people of the Golden Age.

This book will help you to appreciate the many holy sites on our planet.

THE ORIGIN OF CULTURE by thomas dietrich


The British Isles, Ireland, France, Morocco, and Greece share ancient Atlantic culture. Ancient maps of the world showed the Atlantic Prime Meridian (0/360 degrees) along the European and African coastlines until the early 1800's AD.  This ancient Prime Meridian is the key to deciphering  science, myth, and culture.

The renowned astronomer-geographer, Atlas who carried the globe of the heavens on his shoulders lived in Fez-Morocco. His daughters, the Hesperides, guarded the Golden Apples on the Isles of the Blessed (the Canary Islands). Greek myth relates that the Atlantic Gods were born on the Bay of Marmora in Fez -in the vicinity of the Labors of Hercules, the giant Antaeus, the legends of the Amazons, Gorgons, Perseus, and Andromeda.

The ancient history of Ireland supports Greek myth and records that the original settlers of Ireland were North African navigators endowed with outstanding governing skills and a superior knowledge of astronomy. Their name was "the men from Morocco" -the Fir-Marocchi.

The coincidences of Greek and Irish traditions is astounding. There are many more such matters to be discussed in The Origin of Culture such as ancient maps, astronomy, history, and legend which are woven together in this compilation.
