Lost Tribes and Sunken Continents - ANT 2149
  Professor: Dr. Michael Moseley
Fall, 2011


Was God an astronaut? Did space travelers establish ancient civilization? Were the Mound Builders of North America
descendants of the lost tribes of Israel? Are Aztec and Inca pyramids related to those of dynastic Egypt?

This course is a critical examination of why society asks such questions, and how archaeologists go about answering them.
The focus is upon long distance contact and diffusion between alien people and cultures, why contact is fancifully
perceived, how it in fact occurs, and what evidence survives.
