From this part of the site, we are providing links to other sites sceptical of the claims of Bad Archaeology as well as to those that promote it. We are trying to be scrupulously fair in the hope that our readers will see the vacuity of Bad Archaeology both through its critics and through its promoters. The links are categorised in the menu. Please let us know of any sites you would like to see added and any links that are not working.

Link to us

We’d be very pleased if you want to place a link to us on your website: we are happy to link to you in return. Download the logo below and link it to http://www.badarchaeology.net/

    Face the facts. If you want to influence the public you have to be interesting. Where are the links? There is nothing on this site to help me sort truth from fiction. Do archeologist ever write interesting books? How am I suppose to know who built Fort Mountain in Georgia, USA. Right now the park guide gives equal weight to Prince Modoc and the indians. I know your busy digging, but there’s nothing much here for me to go on.

      It gets very time consuming to update the links. I used to have lots, but many of the sites ‘died’. I try to include plenty of links in the articles, which I hope you will find useful.

  • Clark Chitwood says:

    Thanks Keith. There’s alot of mythology out there; even in a business as mundane as mine. Speculators can say anything while you deal in facts and analysis. It is a problem in every business or endeavor. Thanks again and good luck.

    Very nice website, and very useful. Finding sane, down to earth, well reasoned arguments is like a breath of fresh air. There are a lot of loonies out there!

    Keep up the good work. We all need it.

  • Jeff Marlowe says:

    Interesting site with some good information.

    To bad about the snarky comments about Americans scattered throughout. Even as an American with solid British ancestory and an avowed Anglophile I still find myself chaffing at the comments. It seems even legitimate information has to have some of its own stereotype and myth involved :)D

    Otherwise, excellent site.

    • Keith Fitzpatrick-Matthews says:

      Yes, sorry about that. It stems from a period before the site allowed comments and email was the only way people could comment. I got a very stroppy email from someone in the USA complaining about the spelling. At first, I though he”d detected errors, so I asked him to point some out so that I could correct them. He sent me a list of English (British) spellings and demanded that I convert them all to American spellings. I refused and pointed out where I live. He told me that this was unacceptable as the site was aimed at an international audience. I pointed out that most International English follows the rules of English (British), not American spelling. After this, the correspondence became quite abusive and I gave up replying.

      It was petty of me, I know. When I find these comments, I’ll remove them.

    Love the site, Keith. You might consider a link to Fortean Times; they have a few pages devoted to archaeology each issue. FT is much beloved at Oxford and Cambridge – beware of bored scientists.

    I enjoyed your comments on British v American English! Most of us Americans are very USA-centric. And I have learned that lots of people who post on forums are very rude. Keep up the good work. I enjoy listening to Coast to Coast AM but after those far out programs I go to web sites like years to find out what’s the truth.

    The truth is out there, somewhere. Once I came upon an idea that seemed far fetched and said so to the person who postulated it to be true. My thought was, how can you be so sure of thousands of years ago. Were you there?
    It seems to me that man is capable of learning things and inventing things. We are not the only people who came up with advanced ideas: Nikola Tesla and Da Vinci had ideas way ahead of their time, so why couldn’t ancient cultures have had advanced ideas also that they put to use in their everyday lives.
    I have a hard time accepting that advanced ideas had to come from somewhere out of our earth, from some traveling aliens who seemed more like traveling salesmen peddling advanced ideas for a price.
    It seems a lot of “science” is speculation because no one living today has been there to see for themselves. Unless someone wrote down what went on in their ancient civilization on a daily basis and from many points of view, much of what is found today from ancient times is interpreted by way of our understanding of how our present world works, not necessarily how their world actually worked. I find many ideas written as fact are really conjecture, and subject to tweaking, depending on who wrote what.
    While it is interesting to see how people come up with ideas about ancient cultures, all reasoning, no matter how “logical” must be taken with a grain of salt. Again, how can we really know what happened in the past. No one is alive now to say how it really was then from everyone’s point of view.
