Geoffrey of Monmouth
I don't believe archaeologists are working in the shadows of Geoffrey of Monmouth at all. The purpose of archaeology is to study human history through excavation of different sites, and analysis of artifacts found there. Although one of Geoffrey's thoughts proved partly true that Stonehenge was constructed as a funerary monument (based on the human remains found there), I think archaeologists are more apt to believe in what they find, then in ideas that would be most difficult to prove. eg. the curative properties of the stones.
