Lecture: Forbidden Archaeology

Archaeology is like every other science: genuine inquiry plagued by dogma and hidebound resistance to any and all challenges to the paradigm. Want to ruin your career as an archaeologist? Find the wrong thing in the wrong place, dated to the wrong time period.

Steve Lundin, NW Ontario, 1983.
