    Emilio Leave a comment I am sharing with you today a great discovery I made a couple of days ago while searching the web for Archaeological fantasies book studies on archaeological outreach. In his story, the protagonist, the Athenians, defeated the technologically advanced but morally corrupt empire, Atlantis Feder But now, thanks to the work of fellow archaeologist Sara Head, you can get large doses of Feder and fascinating deep science-based discussions of many of the fringe topics which frustrate skeptics so much. Instead of testing the evidence to see what hypotheses it fits, pseudoarchaeologists "press-gang" the archaeological data to fit a "favored conclusion" that is often arrived at through hunches, intuition, or religious or nationalist dogma. In reality, such work is properly called pseudoarchaeology since it is a muddled imitation of the real thing. As well as works on museum education he has written a number of general non-fiction books.

    They did not go out and find prized artifacts and take them and run away. Their greatest Archaeological fantasies book aside from their own specialism is being a good leader and organiser. The book offers four concrete case studies of pseudoarchaeology. Two are, however, not directly relevant to the book's main theme. Archaeology has an ethical dimension that is often neglected in storytelling in favour of the artefact. The engaging and stimulating essays, written by a diverse group of scholars, scientists and writers, explore issues including: the differences between real and pseudoarchaeology pseudoarchaeology's increasing popularity and how the media, especially TV, has contributed to this This edited volume examines the phenomenon of pseudoarchaeology from a variety of perspectives.

    I believe anyone with even the vaguest interest in archaeology would enjoy this show and benefit from its clear and entertaining take on the bottomless midden-pile that is pseudo-archaeology. Postmodernism claims that no objective truth can be known by anyone. Sokal's long contribution on the relationship between pseudoscience and post-modernism. He has thus made himself available to believers in pseudoarchaeology in a far more direct way than most academics ever do.

The Truth About Archaeology That all being the case, what can anyone including archaeologists and archaeology in their fiction do to ensure they are making an accurate portrayal of the people, their work, and their findings?

Wednesday, September Archaeological fantasies book, Book Review: Fagan, Archaeological Fantasies Archaeological Fantasies is an anthology of skeptical writings on pseudoscientific archaeology and post-modernism.

Reconstructing this story from the evidence allows archaeologists to uncover patterns of human behaviour and the reasons for change, human health and diet, the importance of environment, resource distribution, and in more recent time urban planning, as well as the way in which all these elements and more are linked.

Some things can be extrapolated. Archaeology overlaps with a lot of other fields. It was looted. And academic post-modernists only rarely endorse pseudoscience, and then as part of their general distaste for rationalist science. ISBN He went on to identify three core commonalities of pseudeoarchaeological theories: the unscientific nature of its method and evidence, its history of providing "simple, compact answers to complex, difficult issues", and its tendency to present itself as being persecuted by the archaeological establishment, accompanied by an ambivalent attitude towards the scientific ethos of the Enlightenment.
