    Early Land Navigation.
    From: Frank Atkins
    Date: 2015 Feb 9, 04:19 -0800

    Some advice please.

    How would early inland explorers/navigators determined a noon latitude when the sun was too far south ,for instance, making the use of an artificial horizon impractical.

    I currently use a fence at home during the summer months but carrying a fence around the countryside is also impractical, plus the neighbors might object.

    Excuse the ignorance but my knowledge of celestial nav is rather limited.
