The Mayan And Other Ancient Calendars Wooden Book...THE TIME IS NOW
by Geoff Stray
Ever since humans first began to count, people have clocked days, moons and years, tried to make sense of them in terms of each other, and formed calendars to order their lives. In an amazing leap, the ancient Maya managed to synchronise all the visible planets too.
In this tiny recycled guide to ancient calendars, Geoff Stray explains the difference between lunar and solar calendars, the importance of precession, and why the Maya thought the current era would end in December 2012.
The world's smallest guide to the mystery of the Mayan and other ancient calendars.
