The Place of Stone - Dighton Rock with Douglas Hunter - Episode 89
Ken and Sara talk to author Douglas Hunter about his book linked below. The story of Dighton Rock and its relationship with the indigenous past is a fascinating tale.
I listened to this podcast because of ken fader, having listened to ken on the monster talk podcast I knew this was going to be good
The presenters are well informed, very intelligent and fun. The subjects are interesting and very well researched and they pick great guests
Easily accessible archaeological podcast. Interesting subject matter and a breath of fresh skeptical air. I have only just come across this and am catching up with it. I would heartily recommend this to anybody who screams in frustration and despair at "Ancient Aliens" and all the other non-critical "documentaries" so beloved of the Discovery and History channels.
An entertaining and informative podcast that brings critical thinking and a ‘from the field’ perspective to the often bonkers subject of alternative archeology. The sound quality is a little rough, but the content is excellent. Dr Ken Feder is the archaeologist and historian you wish you had at college. US-centric, but highly recommended wherever you are listening from, and the perfect antidote to belief in ancient aliens, Atlantis and Bosnian super-pyramids.
