Archaeology's fakes and frauds

On this page, you will find collected a fascinating cabinet of curiosities - the fakes and hoaxes that have bedeviled archaeology for centuries. These range from the famous (the Cardiff Giant) to objects generally forgotten today. My favorite: the Calaveras cranium, a modern Native American skull buried as a joke in a California mine over a century ago, may be the most influential, as some anomalists still present it as genuine evidence of an ancient human civilization.
