Provide specific examples with relevant dates, locations, etc. Provide specific examples of both types of texts from the lecture. Which primary texts, according to Cremo, both past and present, offer evidence for extreme human antiquity? Is such evidence valid? Be specific. Do you agree with Oldroyd? On what does he base this opinion?
What did Boucher de Perthes later find that seemed to refute their critique? What is the Pre-ensanadan formation? What was found there? When and where was it found? Be very specific. Who reported on this discovery? What were his findings? In , Mary Leaky, one of the most well-respected and highly regarded anthropologists in the academic community made a discovery at Laetoli, Tanzania. What did she find?
What was her explanation? Is this explanation supported in the fossil record? How did Ragazzoni defend his data? In what year? By whom? To what period did these findings belong? What natural corroborating evidence asserts the age of the artifacts? How was the FCC involved? From where does he derive his beliefs?
Are these sides mutually exclusive? Type of paper.
Michael Cremo’s “Forbidden Archaeology”
But starting from about the s, paleoanthropologists turned to the view that human beings first evolved in the next era, the Pleistocene 2. The older evidence, Cremo and Thompson say, was never shown bad; it was just reinterpreted in such a way as to rule out tertiary humans. So what Cremo and Thompson have done is "comb the early literature in great—indeed impressive—detail"  and argue, on the basis of their historical study, "that the old arguments were never satisfactorily disproved and should be reconsidered with open minds". Cremo and Thompson fail to take account of this, he says, and seem to want to accord equal value to all finds. Groves also states that their discussion of radiometric dating fails to take account of the ongoing refinement of these methods, and the resulting fact that later results are more reliable than earlier ones. He concludes that the book is only "superficially scholarly".
Forbidden Archaeology? According to Cremo, the figurine dubbed the Nampa Image was recovered by workers who were drilling a water-well in Nampa, Idaho in Cremo is critical of Michael Brass, who wrote in his book, The Antiquity of Man: Artifactual, Fossil and Gene Records Explored , that it would have been destroyed by the drilling equipment upon retrieval as it was brought up to the surface. In the tube of sand pump, it would be subject to the laws of physics and knocked around at least enough to pulverize the fragile clay figurine. At the very least, the abrasive effect of the sand in the pump would have rounded it to the point of being unrecognizable to even the most gullible. As usual, Cremo is credulous to the point of ignoring any parsimonious or realistic explanation, which makes him the utter laughing stock of real archaeology.
