Having converted the tables of the sun, moon and planets presented in "Astronomical Algorithms," into computer code, Dr. Robert Barratt is a research scientist at the Queen's University in Belfast who designed and built his own software which he uses to produce 3d simulations of neolithic structures.

In this episode Robert shares his struggles against compounding variables, and he highlights the importance of matching archaeoastronomical assumptions with material culture.

And presenting his methods for utilizing statistics, random numbers and comparative models to test intentionality within astronomical alignments, Robert demonstrates how he married big data sets with field experimentation to reveal alignment data in the Neolithic temples of Malta and in the timber circles of Ireland.

Prepare to journey into the mathematics of archaeoastronomy, learning how computer coding is being applied to separate intentionality from chance, with Dr. Robert Barratt.
