This Thursday night, May 21, is the monthly meet-up of the Fairfield Drinking Skeptically group. As usual, our good friend Margey has another great speaker on tap —
How to Pull Off An Archaeological Fraud: A PrimerDr. Kenneth L. Feder is a professor of archaeology at Central Connecticut State University. He has authored several books on archaeology and criticism of pseudoarchaeology such as Frauds, Myths, and Mysteries: Science and Pseudoscience in Archaeology. He gained his Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology in 1973 from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, his Master of Arts in anthropology from the University of Connecticut in 1975 and his Ph.D. in anthropology in 1982. He is the founder and director of the Farmington River Archaeological Project which studies the prehistory of the region. He has also appeared on the ancient astronauts episode of the National Geographic Channel’s Is It Real? and several episodes of the BBC documentary series Horizon discussing Atlantis and Caral.
This month’s meet-up is at 7:00pm at The Field Restaurant, 3001 Fairfield Ave., Bridgeport. If you plan on going, please give Margey a heads up through the Drinking Skeptically site. Should be another great event.
