Paranormal Archaeology

By Paranormal Archaeology Podcast
Paranormal Archaeology is part of the Archaeological Fantasies blog and podcast. Here we will be examining more supernatural topics, things that have ties to archaeology but don’t necessarily fall into the category of pseudoarchaeology. Here we’re going to attempt to examine things like haunted objects and sites through an archaeological lens. Can we learn anything about the supernatural using archaeology?

Topics on this blog will be varied within the genre of the paranormal and the supernatural.
