Beyond crusades: how (not) to engage with alternative archaeologies

New forum article: 'Beyond crusades: how (not) to engage with alternative archaeologies' by Cornelius Holtorf




At grahamhancock.com we are used to being at the receiving end of vile and intemperate attacks by archaeologists accusing us of being "pseudo-archaeologists", pseudo-scientists, etc., and of advocating "fringe", "cult" or "fantastic" ideas about history and prehistory. It is refreshing to discover, however, that not all archaeologists share this knee-jerk hostility towards alternative ideas about the past.

Assistant Professor Cornelius Holtorf, criticises some influential figures within mainstream archaeology for attempting to form "a special state police force dedicated to eradicating interpretations that are considered false or inappropriate by a self-selected jury." Holtorf goes on to argue that "modern society might benefit more from inquiring minds than from passive students to whom factual knowledge is taught, however much that knowledge consists of 'pure truth'."
