Liz Henty gained her PhD from the University of Wales Trinity Saint David and her thesis examined the history of archaeoastronomy and its relationship with archaeology. Her earlier MA thesis was entitled ‘An Examination of Possible Solar, Lunar and Stellar Alignments at the Recumbent Stone Circles of North-East Scotland’. Her books include Visualising Skyscapes: Material forms of cultural engagement with the heavens, (co-edited with D Brown) Routledge, 2020 and The Marriage of Astronomy and Culture: Theory and Method in the Study of Cultural Astronomy, Liz Henty et al. (eds), Culture and Cosmos Special Issue, 2017. She has presented papers at SEAC and the Theoretical Archaeology Group conferences and was a contributor to Skyscapes: The Role and Importance of the Sky in Archaeology, Fabio Silva and Nicholas Campion (eds), Oxbow, 2015. She co-founded and co-edits the Journal of Skyscape Archaeology.


Fabio Silva is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher in Archaeology at Bournemouth University and a tutor at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, both in the United Kingdom. His current research interests focus on how humans perceive their environment (skyscape and landscape) and use that knowledge to time and adjust their social and productive behaviours. His archaeoastronomical research has mostly focused on Neolithic Portugal, though he has also done fieldwork in the United Kingdom and Malta. His books include Skyscapes: The Role and Importance of the Sky in Archaeology (co-edited with N Campion, Oxbow Books, 2015) and The Materiality of the Sky (co-edited with K Malville, T Lomsdalen and F Ventura, Sophia Centre Press, 2016). He co-founded and co-edits the Journal of Skyscape Archaeology (Equinox Publishing) and received the Fifth Carlos Jaschek Award from the European Society for Astronomy in Culture (SEAC) in 2016.
