Forbidden Archeology Reviews

  • James Bandow

    Well, I guess controversy sells. This is a horrible book. Michael Cremo has set archaeology back more than 100 years. This book is a classic example of both a "strawman arguement" and a "red herring". Cremo sets out misinforming the reader about archaeological and geological site formation, confusing the "principal of stratigraphy" (superimposition) with stratification. He also fails to connote the "principal of association". Both the former and latter laws of archaeology must be satisfied to ma [...]

    Surprisingly interesting! Old bones and stone tool findings that have been ignored due to their anomaly. After Darwin's "The origin of species" archeological items that contradict Darwinism were dismissed, even not discussed. These things are reviewed and readers get to follow researchers' and anthropologists' arguments through the centuries. The fact that our ancestors might be much older than we know, actually millions of years, is thrilling. The human footprint next to that of a dinosaur's. T [...]

  • Wendy

    This book made me want to major in archaeology - unfortunately, many of the college professors out there are adament against anything outside of the timeline that they believe is set in stone, even now, almost a dozen years after this book was first published. This book contains numerous examples of disregarded evidence just because it did not fit into the preconcieved notions of how things progressed, illustrating how anthropology and archaeology are not 'sciences' if one repeatedly disregards [...]

  • Natalie

    Exhaustive and well-written book that every archeologist should read. Whether all their evidence stands up or not (and they're clear on ambiguities themselves) the book is a strong lesson in preconceptions and the importance of remembering that theory is not fact, and should be open to constant re-assessment.

  • The Incredible Hogg

    Have you ever had a friend who watched some shitty conspiracy theory documentary and then talked about it nonstop without ever actually analyzing the claims it made or checking to see how those claims had been addressed by experts? That was me when I first read this book. I read it before going to college and actually learning science, and being the young and uneducated dipshit that I was, it convinced me.Honestly it's an interesting book to read (hence the 3 stars), but it's complete bullshit. [...]

  • Alicedewonder

    Without a doubt this research text is whole and complete and pisses off every so called research wannabee that ever crawled the planet. It's not an easy read, but it will light up your life when you discover how much research is fudged/lied about and or withheld due to the pompous wind-bags that insist on being right when they are not!THE AUTHORS DID THEIR HOMEWORK FOR YOU!



  • Lyrae

    This book is absolutely fascinating, but it is not something you can pick up and thumb through. This book is a commitment to read. It's over 900 pages long and reads like an encyclopedia. This large volume serves as a reference compiling many lost, buried or otherwise hidden reports in the associated fields of archeology. There is a depth of information that needs time to be read and processed for those of us who are not professionals in the field. The book is well written with adequate definiti [...]

  • Rich Hoffman

    This is not an easy book to read. It is essentially a textbook. But this book changes the fields of anthropology and archeology to their very cores. It is this book that has opened the door to all the ancient alien theories that are now very popular. This book gives the evidence that mankind has been on earth for thousands of years, but millions. The proof is provided in great abundance, and has rattled the cages of the worlds religions, political structure, and education institutions. It may be [...]

  • Andrew Hennessey

    you would think that the academics didn't have a big enough carpet to hide this mountain of refutations under - but they obviously do - aided and abetted by the digital TV circus, convincing sound tracks and educated accents this is where the ivy towers fall off a cliff

  • David

    Let me begin with the authors' conclusion: "We conclude that the total evidence most consistent with the view that anatomically modern humans have coexisted with other 'primates' for tens of millions of years." Location 18480 (Kindle EditioniPad)And they spent a long,long time examining the evidence and inserting themselves within the substantial anomalous data and giving this a 'good' bit of deconstruction. They are a bit cagey about their approach when the affirm: "There exists in the scientif [...]

  • Stuart Rimmer

    This is a mighty tome, and not for those wanting a bit of light reading. So overwhelming is the evidence that the authors present against the dominant hegemony of archeological thought, that this book reads like a relentless inventory of archeological 'finds' which suggests a chronology other than that which is commonly accepted and propounded, 'finds' which the establishment overlook, or outright deny. Things like anatomically modern human bones recovered from rock strata millions of years old, [...]

  • Jeffrey Reid

    Fascinating. At least Cremo tells you upfront that he subscribes to the Hindu view of the world age circle. Once one understand this viewpoint, everything else falls into place. So, what about those strange artifacts found miles underground, dating back millions of years? Food for thought. Highly recommend

  • Kelli George

    My archaeology professor told me that this book was written by a wacko with fringe theories even though he had not read it. I disagree because this book is basically about the history of the science of archaeology. Anyone who disagrees with this book and dismisses it has not even read it!!!

  • Jai Joshi

    Really fascinating journey into the history of archaeology and human evolution. It raises all kinds of questions about what humans really know about our past and what we still need to know. It left me wanting to learn more which is always a good thing.

  • Christina

    Very interesting. Lots of stuff to think about and not for people who are married to current scientific theory about human history.

  • Kevin Kraft

    This is a landmark and exhaustive work that anyone, who wants to hear challenges to Evolutionism, from historical finds, not mere Christian/Creation Science sources, needs to read this. I have read this huge volume, which details anthropological, paleontological and archaeological discoveries classified as "anomalies" because their very presence suggest that the conventional "facts" as established by a dogmatic scientific establishment, intolerant of challenges to their religion, three times now [...]

  • Devero

    Una bella sequenza di balle raccontate pure male, con scarsa coerenza interna e pure senza scorrevolezza. Voglio dire, Kolosimo, Von Daeniken, Hancock, Sitchin, non solo scrivono molto meglio, raccontando a volte le stesse frottole ma con più stile, un briciolo di plausibilità e coerenza, ma seguono pure uno schema logico, che in Cremo manca totalmente.Non sequitur su non sequitur.

  • Gevera Bert

    This book wasn't what I thought. I expected something like "Fingerprints of the Gods" and it's not, it's creationist literature, very dry and boring and not at all compelling. No stars because I didn't finish it.

  • Dennis

    Sensationelle Funde? Wohl eher sensationeller Quark - aber ab und an lese ich diesen ganzen Atlantis-, UFO- und ähnlichen Krempel ganz gerne mal, wenn ich ihn auf dem Grabbeltisch günstig bekomme. Für etwas Amüsement immer gut

  • Alice

    L'Homo Sapiens ha convissuto per milioni di anni con quelli che la maggior parte degli studiosi del settore ritengono i suoi antenati (Australopithecus, Homo Habilis, Homo Erectus): questo è il tema principale del saggio, che Cremo e Thompson riescono a spiegare efficacemente attraverso la storia di ogni reperto (dove e quando è stato scoperto; chi l'ha ritrovato; la testimonianza di chi ha partecipato alla scoperta; la spiegazione data dagli evoluzionisti ortodossi e quella degli studiosi che [...]

  • John

    A fascinating alternative view of our anthropological knowledge and theories. His thesis is that there is evidence for a much older human presence on our planet than we traditionally acknowledge (perhaps as much as 250 Million years) and that the evidence for a relatively young humanity (1 million years at most) is shakier than we would like to think. This book gives new insight into the way our scientific process works and has worked. Combining this with other mainstream histories of science (A [...]

  • Karmakosmik

    Un libro davvero molto interessante, che tratta la cosiddetta archeologia misteriosa, non partendo da voli pindarici di fantasia o immaginazione, bensì andando a scovare vecchi atti di congresso di geologia e paleontologia, nei quale sarebbero presenti provi che l'uomo attuale sarebbe stato già presente nella sua forma attuale già in tempi antichissimi. Certo, la lettura è davvero difficoltosa per il gran numero di casi affrontati, e per il fatto che si va' a disquisire quasi sempre di probl [...]

  • Linda

    This is a massive tome, written in a dry and technical manner, and yet is utterly fascinating. I read it cover to cover, and every student of paleoanthropology should do the same.This book discusses not only the most famous finds, but also objectively discusses well documented discoveries that were dismissed because they did not fit into the current pet theories of human evolution. I never knew that there were unequivocal modern remains and technology found in strata tens of millions of years ag [...]

  • Alan Grieveson

    I actually read this book a while back and it is brilliant. Written by scientists it is hard read but worth it if you are interested in the subject and offers a more realistic account of things than many of the more modern Alternative Archaeology books.By detailed accounts the authors show how mainstream archaeology tries to stifle, suppress or totally ignore discoveries when they don't fit their standard model of things. It is ever thus and a downside of peer reviews.Worth the effort to get thr [...]

  • Peggy Bechko

    I like strange books, what can I say? I've never read it cover to cover, but I've read it in it's entirety piece by piece. Lots of strange things in this book, grist for the mill for a writer who likes to ponder strange things, so to speak. It's writing style is more than a bit dry, so I probably should have given it a 3 star review, but the content was so much fun in a peculiar way that I just had to give it four.

  • Janel

    this book was boring. very boring. it should have been written as a reference book and saved some paper. it had some great information hidden in a mess of unnecessary words. I didn't even read it cover to cover. I just skipped around to read about certain artifacts I was most interested in.

  • Jeffrey Petit-bois

    Very interesting and informative. The scientific society has not been always honest with the public about the remains of our ancestors. Anybody in the field of anthropology and or has a curious mind concerning the origins of humanity and archeology should it. Superb work.

  • Nathan

    So far I find the book convincing mostly because of the copious cases that the author references in the text. And I haven't even gotten to the weird parts yet. There does seem to be an orthodoxy in th scientific community that brands as heretics all those who don't accept the status quo.

  • Jennifer

    very interesting!
