I wrote this in response to a question on Twitter about a statement made by a pseudoarchaeologist on a YouTube video.
Originally, this summary was found at the end of the review for episodes 7 & 8, but @FlintDibble recommended that I break it out into its own post and offer links to the other 5 reviews. It was, of course, a good idea, so I took his advice.
“I know this is not science!” -Graham Hancock, ep. 5, (00:14:25)
At this point most of Hancock’s schtick is pretty routine, so I’m reviewing two episodes at once. I’ll try to stick to just the main points.
A book review of Denisovan Origins by Andrew Collins and Gregory Little. Not a point-by-point debunking, but a word on style.
A book review of Missing Lands by Freddy Silva. This self-published book on Amazon has a very appealing cover but is lacking some reality.
Graham Hancock’s new book ‘America Before’ is due out. Here’s a pre-review based on promised content via his website.
A book review of Brien Foerster’s recent book about the Paracas Culture, his pseudoarchaeological ideas, and his plagiarism.
