How about an insider's viewpoint? The premier of America Unearthed was based on my book, "Itsapa, the Itza Mayas in Georgia." They also didn't tell you that in the past I was awarded a fellowship to study Mesoamerican architecture in Mexico and taught the subject at Georgia Tech. The final cut of the premier left out years of research into nearby archaeological sites and linguistics, but I guess the director wanted to make it seem like Scott made the major discovery. Well, Scott's a nice guy and it was television. By the way, I was nervous as deer in hunting season at first because I assumed that the filming was going to be something two bit like a local TV station interview - not 8 hours in front of a major movie production set. LOL

The primary complaint I have about some of the shows in the series is that the producers' historians do not seem to be that knowledgeable. In most of the shows with topics of substance (some weren't) I knew more about the subject without any research than the script consultants. They left out important historical information.

On to the negative blogs. I have noticed that many of the negative bloggers are really not familiar with the details of the Dare Stones and themselves made inaccurate statements. The eight stone tablets that Scott examined were found in a Native American cave burial in Georgia's Nacoochee Valley several years before the "Dare Stone" in Virginia. The finder did not know their meaning until the other Dare Stone was publicized. The Nacoochee location is highly significant because there was gold mining village there in 1587, occupied French Protestants and Spanish Jews . . . people who would have protected the English colonists from the Spanish.

When I initially found this show I was very excited, finally someone with credentials that is pursuing alternative history. What a real let down. The topics are great, but the show needs some tweeking. First, find a new host, aside from his trying so hard to throw in scientific language and observation, he looks amateur. Second, anyone watching the show probably has a good understanding of geology and other sciences, we do not need all the dramatic music and spiffy techy overlays, it really cheapens it. As far as this episode, did anyone else catch at the end where the host just flip flops and sides with the MN archeologist on the bones not being from a giant? Talk about throwing Roger under the bus! Even if the bones where laid out next to one another that would not bring a 5 ft skeleton to almost 9 feet, in addition, Roger kept stating how big in circumference they were, this would not be for a small skeleton! Giants or not, this show, no matter how interesting the episode themes are, loses steam in the end as it takes a really awesome concept and cheapens it and adds a host who at best is not very scientific.

Science should be about finding the truth. This program and the host deliberately conceal the facts in order to promote a warped and blatantly false view of history. For instance in the Roanoke episode, Scott Wolter looks for evidence in the Dare Stones and doesn't present some really key facts to the viewer. These 47 stones, alleged to have been engraved by Eleanor Dare, were not found until 1937-1940, scattered across several states. How could they have been missed for 350 years, and then miraculously found. In 1937, it was the anniversary of the disappearance of those first American settlers, and it was in all the news. One stone, with a message was "found," and then a $500 reward was offered in hopes that more rock inscriptions would be discovered. Anyone with a little sense could guess what happened next. What Mr. Wolter doesn't give you is the rest of the story... Nearly all of the remaining rocks just happened to be found by one man, who just happened to be a stonemason.

What is presented in America Unearthed is really just garbage. And one has to wonder what agenda is at work here.

But this show is pure brilliance. What did everyone expect??? Did you really think he was going to find polaroids of the lost colony???

Take this show for what it is - entertainment!

Its hilarious. My wife and I make fun of this guy every show! I think sometimes he knows that he is being unscientific and ludicrous.

If you folks were watching the show to really find out what happened to the lost colony.... loooool.

Sit back, watch it, enjoy the main characters over the top seriousness and chill out. Its easily a 5 star series.

The Ancient Aliens series is much more substantive and better done.

I learn about some artifacts and places I hadn't heard of before, which I think is fun. As a descendant of those Vikings, I of course don't believe that Columbus was the first non-native to come here (duh). But I think this gets me thinking about who all might have escaped here. Wolter doesn't lie about stuff, I don't think. It strikes me as possible that he is paid to be a debunker. Anything that could seriously undermine the existing world order comes up negative... which I guess I sort of feel is a good thing. Anarchy is not a good thing.

His "I'm going to get to the bottom of this" rings false to me, especially when he usually doesn't. I'd prefer it a little more understated and humble, especially since there are often tiny shreds of evidence which ultimately come up as nothing. All the music sounds like he's going into a massive battle, which wears me out a bit.

He goes to a park some miles outside the Denver airport, digs a 2 foot hole in the ground and concludes that there could in principle be a massive underground tunnel system there. (?) And some dowsers smell 50 ounces of gold, which never turns up, but there's a weak spot in next to some well in the woods on some guy's property, which they think might house (yes) the Ark of the Covenant... (?) And amazingly enough, they don't find it. The bravado is so overstated and the results so unexciting, that I think it's on purpose.

And would somebody please research the burial site in Salisbury, MA?
