Bad archaeology

Bad Archaeology is a site where you can explore "the diversity of archaeological misconceptions, mistakes and distortions" written by archaeologists who say they are "fed up with the distorted view of the past that passes for knowledge in popular culture. We are unhappy that books written by people with no understanding of real archaeology dominate the shelves at respectable bookstores. We do not appreciate news programmes that talk about ley lines (for example) as if they are real".
