Something to add might be that the henges and megaliths etc., seem always to be near the coast: is this because the agriculturalists arrived by sea or could tidal calculations also have been important to them?

Going back further, there is some evidence that cave paintings may have had some astrological meaning and perhaps, in that case, they were connected to hunting cycles and seasons.

Whatever the case, I think people have been keeping calendars of some sort for a very long time indeed.
