Dr. Euan MacKie's 2013 rebuttal
of archaeology's attacks on Alexander Thom   1:03:32
Univ. of Glasgow Honorary Research Fellow Euan MacKie, author of The Megalith Builders, who coined the term archaeoastronomy in 1973, defended his friend and colleague Alexander Thom against professional smears at the MEGALITHOMANIA conference in Glastonbury, Somerset, England, May 18-19, 2013.
See Wikipedia article on MacKie.

image of Alexander-Thom Archaeoastronomy pioneer Alexander Thom (1894-1985) professionally surveyed Stonehenge. His refined astronomy skills solved its alignment mysteries in the 1970s. By the 1980s archaeology usurped control of archaeoastronomy coinciding with its own post-processual renaissance.
Things haven't been the same since.
