Walter Cruttenden is the director of the Binary Research Institute, an archaeoastronomy think tank in California. He is the author of the book Lost Star of Myth and Time and the award-winning documentary The Great Year, narrated by James Earl Jones. Cruttenden’s work focuses on the astronomy of ancient cultures throughout the world and their shared belief in vast cycles of time with alternating dark and golden ages. His book, Lost Star of Myth and Time, provides an alternative view of history based on the solar system’s motion through space.
As part of his cosmological work Walter has authored many articles and other media including Ancient Cosmology: A Map of the Future (Noetic Sciences), the alternative history book Lost Star of Myth and Time, the award winning documentary film, The Great Year (narrated by James Earl Jones) and children’s book, The Great Year Adventures: with Tommy the Time-Traveling Turtle.
In his efforts to explore the subject of solar system motion and its concomitant cyclical effects Walter hosts the regular pod cast series, The Cosmic Influence, and organizes the annual Conference on Precession and Ancient Knowledge (CPAK), which features authors and scientists from around the world discussing the implications of celestial cycles on biology, archaeology, anthropology and related sciences.
