So far I find the book convincing mostly because of the copious cases that the author references in the text. This is not an easy book to read. Written by scientists it is hard read but worth it if you are interested in the subject and offers a more realistic account of things than many of the more modern Alternative Archaeology books.
It is this book that has opened the door to all the ancient alien theories that are now very popular. There is a depth of information that needs time to be read and processed for those of us who are not professionals in the field. I am surprised by the plethora of uncritical readers in this forum. Lots of strange things in this book, grist for the mill for a writer who likes to ponder strange things, so to speak.
Further, the overall tone of the work is far superior to that exhibited in ordinary creationist literature. Cremo’s book, Forbidden Archeology, has attracted attention from Hindu creationists and paranormalists, but has been criticized by many mainstream scholars for his unorthodox views on archeology.
I like strange books, what can I say? Forbidden Archeology documents a systematic process of “knowledge filtration” and constitutes a serious challenge to the Darwinian theory of evolu Over the past two centuries archeologists and anthropologists have ignored, forgotten and suppressed vast quantities of evidence showing that human beings like ourselves have existed on this planet for tens of millions of years.

Several reviewers Murray, : His thesis is that there is evidence for a much older human presence on our planet creemo we traditionally acknowledge perhaps as much as Million years and that the evidence for a relatively young humanity 1 million years at most is shakier than we would like to think.

Still, their readings of the paleoarcheological and paleoanthropological records and how scientists whom don’t tow the ‘party’ line are treated is, for the most part, valid if not convincing.

Forbidden Archeology: The Hidden History of the Human Race
Cremo sets out misinforming the reader about archaeological and geological site formation, confusing the “principle of stratigraphy” superposition with stratification. I actually read this book a while back and it is brilliant. I disagree because this book is basically about the history of the science of archaeology. Cremo states that the book has “over pages of well-documented evidence suggesting that modern man did not evolve from ape arcyaeology, but instead has co-existed with apes for millions of years!
