About The COMPANY
At The Great Year we study ancient mysteries and folklore
as well as lost civilizations and their architectures in an effort to determine
if ancient beliefs have a basis in modern science. We look for astronomical evidence
or scientific studies that might support the ancient beliefs, and when confirmed,
produce papers, films, books or specialized presentations to communicate our findings.
The aim of The Great Year is to investigate new theories related to human history
and the rise of civilization. As a production company The Great Year backs film
and literary projects that explore the beliefs held by ancient civilizations and
commonalities in the mythologies of cultures throughout the ancient world. Similarly,
The Great Year looks to develop features that research the depth of scientific
knowledge held by the people of ancient times, as indicated in their writings
or by their architecture and other recovered artifacts, and draw comparisons to
the body of knowledge that humankind holds today.
These films and books are driven by the idea that there is great value to be gained
from learning exactly how ancient societies throughout the world built and sustained
themselves, how sophisticated they were, both in academic knowledge and technology,
and how they preserved their culture, both materially and spiritually.
The Great Year is dedicated to the exploration of theories that aim to expand
our understanding of human history and knowledge, specifically in the fields of
archaeoastronomy and ancient beliefs in grand cycles of time.
