Our goal is to see if they have really found anything that indicates that today's science is wrong and that there are signs that aliens have helped shape our history . In each episode I will go through what is right or wrong and more important, how we know what we know.

    Cathars, lady Foixes, and the return to Rennes-le-château - Digging Up Ancient Aliens

    Cathars, lady Foixes, and the return to Rennes-le-château - Digging Up Ancient Aliens

    This time, I'm not alone! I have Ph.D. candidate Grace Rinehart Macrae, the Time Traveling Archaeologist, with me. We will learn more about the Cathars and one of their influential personalities, Esclarmonde of Foix. A woman who was very important among the Cathars and told to go back to the kitchen by the Dominican orders founder Saint Dominic. Esclarmonde did not to the saint's frustration. She also got known as the Fox due to her ability to avoid the Catholic inquisition.
    Grace will also take us back to Rennes-le-château, where we will revisit and learn more about the buried treasure. Some additional information can be added to our documentation.

    Rasputin, the Black Sun and Serial Killers - Digging Up Ancient Aliens

    Rasputin, the Black Sun and Serial Killers - Digging Up Ancient Aliens

    An archaeologist discussing Rasputin, the famous scapegoats from the Russian Revolution, Nazi symbology, and the stigmatization of mental health in pop culture? Yes, you do want to hear this.
    First, we will talk about how Ancient Aliens and similar shows add to the stigma of mental health with the claims they make in their show. Then we move on to talk about the Rasputin myth, and while finding out who he really was, we learn that many of the pop myths about him are incredibly unfair. Last out, we will deal with the Nazi Symbol called the Black Sun. Some claim it's drawn from Norse sources. We will discover that's far from the case and that the neo nazi mythology circulating about it originates from a 1991 novel.
    In Digging up Ancient Aliens, our host Fredrik uses his background in archaeology to discover what is genuine, fake, and somewhere in between in popular media, such as Ancient Aliens, Ancient Apocalypse, and many other places.

    Mummies, vampires, draugr, and aliens? - Digging Up Ancient Aliens

    Mummies, vampires, draugr, and aliens? - Digging Up Ancient Aliens

    Halloween is soon upon us. Therefore, we will venture into the world of mummies, vampires, Camazotz, and draugr from an archaeological perspective. So we will look at how mummies became a medicine in Europe, the Book of the Dead, and the afterlife of Ancient Egypt. Then we will talk about the bat creature Camazotz, usually depicted with a knife and a human head in his hand. Lastly, we will discuss the draugr from Viking mythology. Was the draugr a ghost, undead, or something else, and what did the Vikings do to protect themselves from these creatures?
    Are there any archeological records of these beings, and what can we say about them?

    The Bosnian Pyramids - Digging Up Ancient Aliens

    The Bosnian Pyramids - Digging Up Ancient Aliens

    Next to a small village in Bosnia there is what some believe is the world's oldest and largest pyramid. Sitting there forgotten for millennials until one man discovered them again. Or did he?
    Our host Fredrik continues the mission to discover what is genuine, fake, and somewhere in between on the TV-show Ancient Aliens. But in this episode we’re going to do a little side tour and peek into the Bosnian Pyramids.
    This is a little shorter episode where we break away from the TV-show and investigate a new phenomenon that was all the rage a decade ago. We will dive deep into who created the origin, is it really real and what is the evidence behind it.
    This also means that we will have to get to know Semir Osmanagic a lot better. If you’re not already familiar with this name you will be at the end of this episode.
    We also talk a little about real European pyramids and a little bit about modern Bosnia. Come with and learn how a modern myth was created.

    The Saqqara bird

    The Saqqara bird

    "1899, somewhere in the Memphis Necropolis close to Saqqara, Egypt,  a few workmen were digging. They were excavating a Mastaba, covered by the desert sand. After a while one of the workmen noticed something, a sealed entrance to the tomb."
    In this episode we will cover an artefact that some claim are proof that a wooden statue is evidence of ancient Egypt having access to airplanes. Is this true or what is this object really.
    Come with on a journey to explore our past and present. Are the indications as strong as some suggest or is it just hot air.
