This book provides a fascinating, encyclopedic antidote for the mysticism and pseudoscience surrounding well-known or highly publicized archaeological and anthropological "discoveries."


* 134 alphabetical entries of terms related to extraordinary archaeological claims, many related to popular frauds, misinterpretations, and misrepresentations of the human past

* Contains 50 illustrations, including depictions of the Maya calendar day and month glyphs, ancient astronomical alignments, the sarcophagus lid of the Maya ruler Pacal, and the Ica Stones

* Photographs of such monuments and artifacts as the pyramids at Giza, Serpent Mound, Nazca ground drawings, Tucson artifacts, Michigan Relics, and Easter Island Moai bring the topics to life

* A comprehensive bibliography and further reading suggestions at the end of each entry feed further investigation

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This well-organized one-volume reference tool is recommended for high school and public libraries. It could also prove valuable for archaeology and prehistory students, as well as casual readers with an interest in historical mysteries." - Library Journal
"This is a fascinating book to read, and one that could help to answer trivia questions on the Cardiff Giant or the Ica Stones. . . . Many of the topics will be familiar to fans of cable shows that focus on the extraordinary and the unusual." - Booklist
