That is pretty fascinating. When Danielle and I visited the Mayan ruins on the Yucatan peninsula last October, we were absolutely blown away by how much the Mayans are believed to have known about astronomy based on the construction details of their temples, etc.

Didn't realize you had been there--cool.

I have been listening to the audiobook 1491 by Charles C. Mann as I drive the 55 mi. to / from work and am finding that my education on the Americas before Columbus has been fairly skewed.
