Episode 7 of the Archaeology Fantasy podcast is live, and we’re talking about the Newark Holy Stones this time. Ken and I were able to pull in two experts in the stones, Jeff Gill and Brad Lepper.
They give us a new look at the stones. Gill and Lepper paint a picture of the stones that’s quite different from the ridiculous hoax and create an image that is actually quite noble. This podcast really changed the way I see the Newark Holy Stones, and I hope listeners can take that away too.

Listened to the episode and found the updated story on this pair of artifacts much more interesting than before, I asked several people the question mentioned in the episode about faking an artifact if you believed you could stop a war by doing so, all responded that they would.
There is an interesting paper just out that covers some problems with the evidence presented for the Solutrean hypothesis, it might be worth discussing in a future episode.
