5.0 out of 5 stars Long overdue setting the record straight, 18 May 2008
This review is from: Alexander Thom: Cracking the Stone Age Code (Paperback)
A beautifully clearly written account of the revenge of the archaeological establishment on the work of a brilliant scholar. To quote from the cover of the book "Once the cause of an almighty rumpus in archaeology, Alexander Thom's researches led him straight into the minds of the prehistoric builders of stone circles and revealed their skills in geometry and astronomy. His research was so dangerous to current thinking about prehistory that today, just twenty yearsd after his death, he has been airbrushed out of academia, depite being amongst the most qualified and experienced scientists of the twentieth century."
Once again, someone whose thinking was miles ahead of most of his contemporaries was the subject of typical character assassination simply because of the limited horizons of others. With a few notable exceptions I have found archaeologists have their noses so firmly buried in the ground that they forget there is so much more surrounding us. As it says somewhere "Lift up your heads!"
