Archaeoastronomy on YouTube

I’ve just found this video on the 2009 Conference on Archaeoastronomy of the American Southwest. The 2009 present­a­tions look like they were really inter­est­ing. As a whole I find archae­oastro­nomy in the American south­w­est inter­est­ing because the meth­ods used are often very dif­fer­ent to Europe. We simply don’t have the eth­no­graphic data for a lot of sites over here. However, the wealth of his­tor­ical records from Classical Greece and Rome leads me to think there might be some use­ful tips I could pick up on method. I shall have to start sav­ing my pen­nies and see if I can afford to go to the next one.

In the mean­time there’s plenty of other inter­est­ing films to watch on John Sefick’s YouTube Channel.
