Our understanding of archeoastronomy sites worldwide is based not only on a rich archaeological record and texts that go back thousands of years, but also on a living tradition that is connected to the past. Interestingly the cultural diversity and a tangled history of interactions with neighboring regions make the story complex. The texts reveal to us the cosmological ideas that lay behind astronomical sites in the historical period. In the historical period, astronomical observatories were part of different complexes.
