I have been reading this interesting book dealing with the many mysteries of the world. In one chapter the author discusses the Dogon tribe of West Mali.
In it, he talks of how they had extensive knowledge of the sky and especially the star Syrius. If anyone knows their astronomy, then they know that the star is actually a double star. This is why it is the brightest one in the sky. They had this knowledge thousands of years before we discovered it in the late 1850s. Also they knew that this second star was had a term called super density. This was not confirmed up until 1920. Amazing how they knew they eh?
