Topic: Symbols of an Alien Sky. Possible explanations of prehistoric myths from comparative mythology perspective. Examining the commonality cultures around the world have in their stories & symbols. According to Ret. Prof. of EE Don Scott "Talbott has made sense out of a huge collection of ancient artwork and archetypes that, here-to-fore, the authorities in history, archaeology, and anthropology have discarded as being meaningless. For the viewer, it is like taking off a blindfold after a lifetime of being forced to wear one." We will watch a 78-minute film and discuss it afterwards.
