Archeomythology is the study of archeology through the lens of mythology as a unique method of understanding ancient societies, cultures, relationships, and factual history. An early example of archeomythology is the discovery of the ancient city of Troy in the late 1800s.
Archeoastronomy is the study of how ancient people understood phenomena in the sky, how they articulated and interacted with these phenomena, and how these phenomena inspired their culture and mythology. The ongoing study of the 5000-year-old mystery monument Stongehenge is the best example of archeoastronomy.
Geomythology is the study of geological events referred to in mythology. Myths are often inspired by pre-existing extraordinary geological formations such as the Devils Tower.
In this video, presenter Frederick Tamagi explores the studies of archeomythology, archeoastronomy, and geomythology.
