The History of Lucky New Year Lemon Pigs.
Did you make your lucky Lemon Pig on New Year's? You didn't!? No luck for you from this ancient tradition... Or not? I got sucked into the #LemonPig craze this year out of shear Internet peer pressure. Honestly, they're cute, and I just happened to have two lemons lying around that were slowly calcifying in...

The Book about Archaeology that isn’t about Archaeology.
The intriguingly named Evil Archaeology by Heather Lynn Ph.D., was a book I was looking forward to. Who doesn't like a nice spooky book on archaeology? So I happily paid $10 for it on Kindle and waited for its release, which kept getting pushed back. Finally, in April of this year, I got my copy, just... Continue Reading →
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.) Show... Continue Reading →
The Dare Stones
The Dare Stones are one of those 'artifacts' that I find the belief in them hard to understand. There is so much that I find to be obviously wrong with them, that I have a hard time figuring out why anyone would believe them to be real. Though to be honest, it seems not a... Continue Reading →
The Origins of the Oak Island Saga Pt2: Smith’s Cove and Boobie Traps.
Despite the lack of treasure found on Oak Island, there appears to be something strange about the whole thing, and that's enough for some adventurers. The Money Pit is far from the most intriguing thing on, or around rather, the island. Many think this possibly man-made feature is the reason for flooding in the Money Pit. Since the discovery...

The American Stonehenge on Mystery Hill – America Unearthed S1, Ep 6.
Yay! We're about halfway through the first season! I grossly underestimated how long it would take to review this series. There is just so much that needs to be addressed in each episode, it's daunting. I am learning to break-up the posts into smaller posts that I can then link you too for more information....

The Pyramids That Are Not, The Bosnian Pyramids.
Episode 29 of the Archaeology Fantasies Podcast is live. If you haven't given it a listen, go do it now! I apologize ahead of time for the fact that I can't say Sam Osmanagich's name correctly. We're talking about the Bosnian Pyramids. For those who don't know, the Bosnian Pyramids are not actual pyramids, they are a cluster... Continue Reading →
The Dubious Mystery of Mystery Hill and America’s Stonehenge.
Now dubbed "America's Stonehenge" in Salem, New Hampshire, the location once known as Mystery Hill continues to draw tourists to what is touted as being evidence of pre-Columbian contact. Evidence of who is still up for debate. The site itself is about 30 acres of land just off route 111 in Salem. It's a sprawling complex of stone structures, walls, natural caves,...

Ancient Celtic Egyptian Mithra Cults in Oklahoma – America Unearthed S1, Ep 5.
I’m going to try and reign these reviews in a little. As much fun as they are to write, they get a little epic. As usual, if you don’t want to read through the whole break down, feel free to skip to the In Summary section at the bottom, but as always if you have... Continue Reading →
