The Sky Disc is one of the most important archaeological finds of the past century. It displays the world’s oldest known concrete depiction of astronomical phenomena.
Features of the sky at night and by day are mingled, against the background of an abstract representation of a starry sky. The sun and moon’s course across the heavens is not only depicted, but also explained. For, between the horizons, a ship is making a nocturnal journey across the celestial ocean. This is the first time this image occurs in Europe as a central mythic symbol. The Sky Disc gives us a glimpse into our ancestors’ knowledge of the course of the universe and its religious interpretation 3600 years ago.
