To be fair, there are worse fantastic archeaology books, any of the Atlantis books will do, but not many that are so heavy-handed and so distinctly paranoid. Every classic ploy of pseudo-science is used in this tome- legititmacy envy, paranoid conspiracy, evidence selection, limited hypothesis, probabilisitic fallacies, citations of out of date (almost laughably out of date) work, distortion, and discussion of minutae at the expense greater information. Anyone who reads this book should read books by genuine archeaologists to see what the authors here missed. Brian Fagan's "From Black Land to Fifth Sun" is a good start. A shameful book, and those who accept it as a bona fide work of intellectual investigation are horribly mistaken.
