History of Science


This is the official website of the Center for Archaeoastronomy, a professional research organization founded at the University of Maryland in 1978. The Center later helped establish ISAAC, the International Society for Archaeoastronomy and Astronomy in Culture, in 1996 to promote the academic development of archaeoastronomy and ethnoastronomy around the world.

Our Editors launched the first peer-reviewed academic journal dedicated to the interdisciplinary field of archaeoastronomy, called Archaeoastronomy: The Journal of Astronomy in Culture, in 1977 and published it in-house until 2005. Now, this journal is published on behalf of the Center and ISAAC by the University of Texas Press. The Center also published the Archaeoastronomy and Ethnoastronomy Newsletter for several years. We have made many essays from this newsletter available to read on this website.

The Center continues to publish peer-reviewed books and conference proceedings, most recently with another of its professional partners, Ocarina Books.
