Forbidden Archaeology

In 1996, a book was released that posed serious questions about the history of the human race. The book was called Forbidden Archaeology: The Hidden History of the Human Race and was written by Michael Cremo and Dr. Richard L Thompson. Within it’s pages was the hypothesis that modern man, Homo Sapiens, was not just tens of thousands years old but could possibly be millions of years old! This theory proposed that modern-type humans would have lived alongside our supposed ape ancestors rather than be descended from them.

Examining long-forgotten evidence of Victorian-era discoveries, which went totally against the accepted Darwinian theories of the time, the book spanned over 900 pages and certainly ruffled a few feathers in mainstream academia and civilised anthropology. Now, more than twenty years later and with a follow-up currently being written, we spoke to author Michael Cremo to ask why that same mainstream academia continues to ignore that evidence and has yet to answer many of the questions raised – although they do seem to be getting closer.

SOYM: How would you define the term ‘Forbidden Archaeology’?

Michael Cremo: By “Forbidden Archaeology” I mean archeological discoveries that are dismissed by mainstream scientists. Primarily because they show the existence of humans, like us, predating the mainstream scientific consensus regarding the first appearance of modern humans nearly 200,000 years ago.
