Abstract

Here it is given a work proposing exercises in archaeoastronomy. After a short introduction, we start showing a sample of the proposes exercises. It concerns the study of the orientation of the Stonehenge monument, by means of satellite images and software simulating azimuth and altitude of the sun. Like this example, all the exercises will be well-defined cases, supplemented by solutions, and proposed in the framework of an experimental approach that everybody can repeat.

Keywords: Archaeoastronomy, Software Simulations, Satellite Images, Statistical Methods
