Committed to the scientific investigation of human antiquity, this indispensable supplementary text uses interesting archaeological hoaxes, myths, and mysteries to show how we can truly know things about the past through science. Examples of fantastic findings support the carefully, logically, and entertainingly described flaws in the purported evidence. By placing wildly inaccurate claims within the context of the scientific method,Frauds, Myths, and Mysteriesdemonstrates how science approaches fascinating questions about human antiquity and, in so doing, shows where pseudoscience falls short.
