AJC: Fantastic archaeology

Taken with faith - John Blake at "As the public ponders claims made by 'The Lost Tomb of Jesus,' several archaeologists pose another question: Haven't we been here before?

Many archaeologists and researchers who specialize in the Middle East denounced the James Cameron documentary for lacking scientific credibility.

And —- while no one can say for sure what is or isn't in the box —- scholars said evidence of claims similar to Cameron's can be found in the past, but not in a musty tomb in Jerusalem: They classify the discovery as the latest entry in a field called 'fantastic archaeology,' a practice that dates to at least the Crusades."
