I really enjoyed this archaeoastronomy course. Professor Magli demonstrated outstanding knowledge of the subject, and was so generous in sharing his expertise through videos of worldwide locations.

Amazingly made MOOC. Perhaps it feels a bit short in comparison to some of the others, but the material is well presented and the suggested readings give plenty of opportunity for further learning.

Hello, My name is YOGESH.B I studied this course in India. It was quite astonishing. The teacher conducted the lesson very well. With this course, I was able to learn the unknown clearly. The method of conducting the lesson was also clear enough to understand.
I hope this course will be very useful for my future.

Excellent Course. I am pleased that esteemed universities like Politecnico di Milano are finally opening up to re-teaching such a suppressed knowledge, publicly speaking, especially and personally, how it pertains to contemporary architecture and urbanism. It will be interesting to see how this field develops from here!
Thank you, Rani.

Es un curso muy bueno e interesante, no solo se limita al tema arqueológico, de hecho empecé a tomar conciencia del movimiento de los astros y pues efectivamente tienen relación con las temporadas de lluvia, ubicación en cierto lugares, época de cosecha, etc. me gustaría volver a llevar un curso similar con el mismo docente :D

Great new course that provides interesting connections between temples build by different nations using knowledge of stars. I wish it was more temples included in this course, such as from the Middle East. Looking forward to learn more from Politecnica Milano, that related to astronomy and architecture. Grazie from New York.

Excellent introduction to the less known but fascinating field of Archaeoastronomy. The content has been designed meticulously and explained well by Dr. Giulio Magli. Some parts of the week seven content, like the motions of the moon and the Venus, if explained through animation would make it even better. My felicitations!

This is a fascinating overview of archaeoastronomy. I learned a lot about ancient monuments that were built in accordance with movements of the sun, moon, and stars. It is challenging to understand all the concepts, but worth the effort. I bought Dr Magli's book and look forward to reading it. I want to learn more.

I am very pleased that I found this course and was able to complete it. It is rich in interesting information and shows Archaeoastronomy as a promising area of research. During the course I improved my skills in astronomy, although (as the final test shows) they are still not very good. Thank you Teacher for his work!

Very nice introduction to this topic ; equilibrate use of the documentation and clear, precise and stimulating examples presentation ;nice videographics ; statements are well explained ; to suggest to people interested in a different (but scientific evidence based) point of view about "old stones"

I am so glad to have found this course! I don't have any background in the field but the subjects of archaeology and astronomy have interested me since childhood. The course is ideal for beginners as long as you work through the material thoroughly. Thank you for this amazing experience, Polimi!

I really enjoyed this course and only wish I hadn't taken it over Christmas when I wasn't able to give it my best effort.
A big thank you to Dr Magli for the great video lectures.
I am hoping to further my interest by reading more of bibliography contents.
Thank you and Happy New Year!

Very informative course! Learned much about how astronomy is linked to various monuments and ancient civilizations. Particularly enjoyed the architectural alignment of monuments/buildings with stars and movement of our solar system. Thank you for developing and teaching this course!!

I absolutely LOVED this course. The videos were well organized and informative. I really liked the way the instructor had images and maps in the background as he explained them and even showed him self perspectively placed so it looked as if he was there in the images. I loved it

Extremely interesting and filled me with wonder about how different ancient civilizations perceived the sky and its connection to their earthly presence.
Would recommend for anyone who enjoys learning about the past, but devoid of a trash-archaeology Ancient Astronaut spin.

A very interesting course that open doors and minds on how to look at ancient cultures and archaeology. Even is for beginners, the subjects are demanding and its not just an easy path to the end. You must read, think and understand challenging knowledge. I recommend it.

Great course, very scientific and good material. The quiz questions are not all directly given in the material. You have to work out the answers from that which they give you in the material. This is just like any college level astronomy course operates. You learn!

Wonderful course with great insights into the field of archaeoastronomy! Professional explanations of knowledge with a wide range of significant examples, but I guess it's better to have some basic knowledge about astronomy in mind before starting this course.

The videos are graphically very well done. Embedding the speaker in the changing landscapes helped a lot in understanding what was said. The technical astronomical data was a bit too complicated for me, but I was still able to follow the course with interest.

Thank you for offering this fascinating and informative course. I learned how to dispense with a few more unconscious biases, I can now approach the concepts of the ancient monuments with new lenses of consideration and understanding, which I value greatly.
