TOP REVIEWS FROM ARCHAEOASTRONOMY
The overall course was good but I personally found the last test difficult. I had to read for the test from other websites as I found the readings provided in week 7 insufficient for the test.
This course has lots of good information with an interesting instructor. The integration of visual images and stories with the astronomy and archaeology data is well done.
Fascinating topic - great videos but I had read the notes as well because I was having difficulty understanding Prof. Magli's accent. Course covered many different parts of the world. Thank you.
Helpful in achieving a good basic understanding of the technical aspects of astronomy and as a good general introduction to the study of archaeoastronomy. Clearly presented and well illustrated.
