Feder provides an entertaining summary forty sites along with the practical information you'll need to visit these fun and fascinating sites.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Feder has written the indispensable travel guide to the most colorful blind-alleys and wacky dead-ends of North American archaeology. He knows the territory like nobody else, and he's passionate about the subject with a delightful sense of humor. And along the way, you'll learn a lot about real archaeology too. Buckle up and enjoy the ride. -- Brad Lepper, Senior Curator of Archaeology, Ohio History Connection
Ken Feder is an indefatigable archaeological traveler, blessed with insatiable curiosity. He takes us on an entertaining, at times funny, and always well informed excursion to forty archaeological sites where you can experience the often zany site of North American archaeology first hand. This nicely written, well illustrated book takes us on a delicious archaeological journey through a sumptuous array of oddities. It's a delight. -- Brian Fagan, emeritus professor of anthropology, University of California, Santa Barbara
Feder's humorous commentary and honest presentation of facts make this a fun and informative read. Probably the best way to plan a unique trip to an unusual place in search of hidden messages, lost civilizations, and ancient aliens. -- Sara Head, host of Archaeology Fantasies
Feder's latest is a fascinating field guide to America's imaginary past from an expert archaeological traveler who combines deep knowledge, a wicked sense of humor, and a thoughtful perspective on the many ways Americans envision ancient times. -- Jason Colavito, author of The Cult of Alien Gods: H.P. Lovecraft and Extraterrestrial Pop Culture
Feder's excellent Archaeological Oddities is an oddity itself: an exhaustive guide to the spookiest archaeological sites in North America that provides real evidence. Readers who want the facts, dig in. Highly recommended. -- Jeb J. Card, assistant teaching professor, department of anthropology, Miami University
