Bad Archaeology

Shawn Graham, Carleton University associate professor of history, is organizing this year's Shannon Lecture Series. The theme: Bad Archaeology - the use and abuse of archaeological knowledge and ways of knowing.
No details yet but lots of potential! From badarcheology.com: bad data, out-of-place artifacts, conspiracy theories, old maps, lost civilizations, extraterrestrials, controversies, other dimensions, religious delusions, frauds and hoaxes, in the service of politics (a good one for Ottawa), dubious methodologies.
Information on the Shannons, including the now public information on the donor, are at https://carleton.ca/history/shannon-lectures-history/
