 The Sky At Night, 700 BC - A Scholarly Detective Story
It wasn’t long before they were able to provide him with a star chart for 700 BC, showing the configuration of the sky as Hesiod himself would have seen it from his home village of Askra (today called Askri), which nestles in the Valley of the Muses near Thebes in central Greece.
Armed with sky charts for the period, Dr Cronin travelled to the valley, stood where Hesiod might have stood and, after a period of careful study of the evidence, concluded that the poet’s calendar was specific to the valley and to the farmers living and working there in 700 BC.
Cronin suggested that the answer may be found in the way the family farm was divided on their father’s death, the olive grove having fallen to the poet: if Perses did not own an olive grove, instructions on its cultivation would have been superfluous in a poem intended primarily for him.
