Bad Archaeology

I am fond of bad archaeology, and so I am fond of this blog I just found of the same name.  It closely examines pseudoscience, veiled racism and wishful thinking in archaeology. 

I had been unaware that a Mississippian, Jerry Vardaman of MSU, contributed to the august world of pseudoarchaeology with his theory that ancient Greek and Roman coins bore “microletters” invisible to the naked eye.
