About the Event
Archaeological Oddities: A Field Guide to Claims of Lost Civilizations, Ancient Visitors, and other Strange Sites in North America.
Join Central Connecticut State University Professor of Anthropology Ken Feder for an entertaining and eye-opening tour of sites that have inspired some of the strangest, and most dangerous, ideas about North American archaeology. From aliens, dragons, giants, and trans-Atlantic visitors, Feder explains why these amusing and seemingly harmless ideas about the American past undermine the real story of Native Americans.
