Joe Zias: On Recent Exaggerated Archaeological Claims, Including the ‘Zinc Coffin’ and the ‘Lead Codices’

Joe has been a ‘boots on the ground’ participant in Israeli archaeology for a very long time- even serving the IAA as anthropologist.  He has some things to say in this essay (which he has allowed me to upload and make available) about recent fraudulent archaeological claims and the people making them.

If you have questions about the ‘why-ness’ of such things, he has the answer.  I commend it to you.
