     The Myth of the Year reveals the astronomy underlying Celtic and Greek 
mythology using the calendar of the Druids discovered in Coligny, France and 
the Sacred Calendar of Eleusis of ancient Greece. The myths of the ancients 
follow the seasons through the constellations illuminating the path of
knowledge our ancestors lived throughout their year. To fully explain the 
meaning of these seasonal myths, the origin of the goddesses and the gods are 
traced to their Neolithic roots using Marija Gimbutas' archetypes of the 
Neolithic Pantheon. Indo-European adaptations made to some of the major 
deities are also discussed providing a profile of the evolution of the ancient 
goddesses and gods from Neolithic times to their present representations in the 
night sky. Besides linking astronomy to mythology, The Myth of the Year presents
an effective and carefully researched path of ancient knowledge viable to the 
public today as a source of the patterns of the sky, the earth, the moon, and the 
sun meticulously plotted through eons of ancient knowledge. Travel through the 
year and learn to keep time as the ancients did by the night sky. Explore the 
rhythms of the earth through the goddesses and gods of the human imagination on 
its voyage through time.
