Asteroids, Micro Diamonds, and the Younger Dryas with Jens Notroff: Archaeological Fantasies Ep 106

Today we talk to Jens Notroff about a recent report about a newly discovered asteroid crater under the Greenland Glacier. How is this connected to the Younger Dryas? What is the Younger Dryas? And is this evidence of Gobekli Tepe being older than it seems? (You can probably guess the answer for that one.)

Re-vamping the website and the Patreon site.

I’ve had a few requests lately to change a few things around here, one of which was to add the podcast eps to the Patreon. Apparently, there is a player attached to the site. I didn’t know that, so I’m working on adding the past years worth to the Patreon. This is both a warning and an announcement to people if you start seeing oodles of new episodes of the podcast on Patreon, that’s why. Hopefully, it won’t affect the actual podcast feed so no strange bulk uploads.

I’m also adding a few new things to the website, a Pseudoarchaeology Timeline and a reading list. These are both going to be living documents and will be updated with links and information from time to time.

I’m also going to try and pay more attention to the Patreon page, keeping it updated and such. However, I’m still learning so if you have suggestions let me know.

Thanks as always for all your support and enjoy the show!

Olmecs and Ancient DNA with Jennifer Raff – Archaeological Fantasies ep 98

Today we start a new segment with Dr. Jennifer Raff. We explore the use of ancient DNA in archaeology and how our understanding of such has changed over the years. We also look at the most recent misuse of the Olmec culture as evidence of a pre-columbic African presence in the Americas, and what DNA tells us about that.
