For a long time I've been meaning to set up a web with
references to other sites and articles not found elsewhere which
expose 'cult' or 'fringe' archaeology. I’ve
finally gotten around to setting one up because Ross Clark asked
me what to do with some graphics sent to him by Robin Stobbs.
Foolishly I said no problem, I’d put them up! Fortunately
web utilities are friendlier than when I first wrote a web page,
so with the help of Arachnophilia, here it is.
Now that I’ve created it, I intend to use it for what in
my opinion is interesting information about archaeology. In
particular this will include a section on what is often called
cult or fringe archaeology. I'm including also various links
to more serious and to my main interest in archaeology,
Romano-British archaeology. It won’t be terribly flash as I
don’t have the time, and in any case prefer sites with a
minimum of bells and whistles.
Besides collecting links and new information for the
site, I need to figure out a way to classify the links,
particularly the cult archaeology ones. As with everything else,
suggestions are always welcome!

ASTRONOMER'S ANALYSIS OF THE [Sitchin's] AKKADIAN
SEALThis is a link to an article by Tom Van
Flandern. I wouldn't normally link to him or the Laura Lee
Show, but his analysis of Sitchin's Akkadian seal is
interesting. Note at the bottom of the web page that you can buy
a cassette by him in which he says that he is looking for a
Planet X, but says "Sitchin’s "12th Planet"
does not fit the astronomical evidence."
England Antiquities Research Association - This is a
web site primarily for those who think that there is evidence for
considerable pre-Colonial European influence in North America. I
cannot endorse the site, but they have had the courtesy to post a
note of mine about the Newport Tower and I feel I should
reciprocate. I also think that many of the sites they discuss do
need careful study, whatever the results.
