Many of the most familiar constellations were handed down from the ancient Babylonians, who lived in what is now Iraq, the Greeks and Romans. No doubt some of these star groups go back even further. More recently, all this wisdom has been converted into strings of ones and zeros and packaged for mobile phones and iPads. Other civilizations and human tribes recognized their own sets of constellations. Some are similar to ours, others completely different.
By Grady Winston. Before the age of global positioning systems or compasses, people looked to the stars to find their way. And before civilizations knew what stars were, people formed their own beliefs about their significance. In North America, indigenous tribes had differing ideas about what the stars meant, some believing that the night sky had spiritual meaning, and some attributing human-like qualities to the twinkling objects. Archaeoastronomy is the study of how people of the past understood the stars and the sky, however this broadly applies to all ancient cultures. The Mayans, Celts, and Egyptians alike all had their own methods for tracking the movement of the stars and heavenly bodies, but all of these cultures have the common belief that the phenomenon above their heads was somehow larger and greater than they were. As such, the vast majority of ancient cultures associated the origins of everything, including the sky, moon, sun and earth with some form of mythology related to the stars.

The original constellation associated with Ariadne's crown is probably the Corona Australis southern crown. This fairly dim constellation was one of the original 48 identified by Ptolemy in the 2nd century A. In modern usage, the story of Ariadne is associated with Corona Borealis. Ariadne's crown is known to be a specific type of woman's hair ornament fashioned from gold in the shape of a wreath with jeweled roses. It is described in Plutarch's story about Theseus, and a crown of this type was found in an ancient Greek treasure cache. Ariadne was the daughter of King Minos of Crete, who, according to one legend, kept the ferocious Minotaur half human, half bull in a labyrinth under his palace.
