Author Kenneth Feder, a professor of archeology at Central Connecticut State University, will speak about some of the country’s most fascinating sites, as detailed in his recently released book, Archaeological Oddities: A Field Guide to Forty Claims of Lost Civilizations, Ancient Visitors, and Other Strange Sites in North America.
Feder questions some of the more questionable archaeological stories and evidence. Does evidence show that Native Americas residing in Utah 1,000 years ago lived among dinosaurs? Did some of those same ancient Americans also encounter visitors from other planets, painting images of space-suited aliens on canyon walls? Have archaeologists discovered evidence that members of the Lost Tribes of Israel visited ancient America, leaving their mark by engraving the Ten Commandments in Hebrew on rocks in New Mexico?
Professor Feder specializes in the archaeology of North America. He is author of several books, including Ancient America: Fifty Archaeological Sites to See for Yourself. He has appeared on numerous television documentaries on the National Geographic Channel, the BBC’s Horizon, the History Channel, the Discovery Channel, and the SyFy Channel and has been featured in episodes of the Canadian-based William Shatner’s Weird or What? Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
