The Empire Builders: A Socio-Economic History of Architects and Building Artisans from the Neolithic to the Renaissance included construction rituals based on creation myths. The title is its own subject in "Spider Grandmother and Other Avatars of the Moon Goddess in New World Architecture" ... Read More
