Ellen Lloyd - AncientPages.com - As we continue to admire many marvelous ancient monuments across the world, we often ask ourselves - how did our ancestors build these incredible structures? How did ancient civilizations know how to raise and align sacred monuments to the stars?
It is well-known that many ancient civilizations were skilled astronomers and possessed great knowledge of architecture. Ancient Egyptians, Babylonians, Sumerians, Maya, Chinese, just to mention a few, all contribute to the growing evidence supporting the theory that our ancestors were intelligent scientists.
Pyramids and other ancient monuments show ancient civilizations were familiar with Orion, Sirius and the Pleaides. Still, how and when did the first civilization come up with the idea that ancient structures should be built and aligned to the stars?
We do know that for example Imhotep was well-known for his intelligence and wisdom. Imhotep, or “he who comes in peace,” was an ancient Egyptian genius and the great architect of the world’s first known monumental stone building, the Step Pyramid at Sakkara.

But was goddess Seshat the first one to start this practice? According to sacred ancient texts, she was not. There was a group of mysterious individuals known in all parts of the world, and they were the first beings who in the remote past raised and aligned monuments to the stars.
