Archaeoastronomy & Ethnoastronomy News

This is the online archive of past Archaeoastronomy and Ethnoastronomy News. We've come a long way since the first days of its publication twelve years ago. The A&E News was the four page printed newsletter of the Center for Archaeoastronomy and ISAAC. From 1991 through 1999, the A&E newsletter provided subscribers with the latest news in archaeoastronomy, including conference dates, new books and web sites, and upcoming events at the Center.

To read features from the dozens of back issues of A & E News, please explore the complete list below or contact Dr. John Carlson at his first initial plus last name at to receive printed back issues of the A&E News (when available).
