A new study published by the Nexus Network Journal suggests that the spatial position of palaces, temples, and tombs built at least 2, 300 years ago by the Nabataeans, including the famous city of Petra, were determined by the movement of the Sun and other astronomical events. The new research was carried out by scientists from the Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias (IAC) and the Instituto de Ciencias del Patrimonio, Incipit (CSIC) in Spain, and the University of Perugia, Italy. Using statistical analysis on the spatial position of significant ancient monuments built by the Nabataean people, the results suggest that the great buildings are linked with the equinoxes, solstices, and other astronomical phenomena.
I wonder how they did their measuring and aligning and what their math skills were... a lot of these places are celestially aligned...i wonder why?
