About this title
[Read by Dr. Scott Viguie, Joe Bevilacqua, Lorie Kellogg, Austin Downey]
Sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction. Come along and explore both.
Popular fiction is filled with images of archaeologists as daring adventurers who constantly risk life and limb in the pursuit of fabulous antiquities of immense historical and monetary value. There are evil villains, great romances, and unknown perils lurking around every corner.
That's the view many people have of archaeology. But what is the truth behind the myth? And why have the myths persisted for so long?
In this book you'll explore the fiction surrounding archaeology, why we as people love and perpetuate that fiction, and what the truth behind the fiction really is.
Dr. Scott Viguie holds two doctorates and is an archaeologist and attorney who has done extensive research on myths and their impact on modern archaeology and storytelling. He is a routine guest at various science fiction and fantasy conventions, where he contrasts fictional depictions of archaeology with its real-world counterpart. He is the creator of Dr. Geek's Laboratory of Applied Geekdom, a website and podcast about the world of tomorrow and the people making it happen.
