Summary

An investigation into the historical and archaeological evidence of demons, curses, and possession, featuring some of the most gruesome artifacts and sites ever discovered 

Demons, jinn, possession, sinister artifacts, and gruesome archaeological discoveries haunt this new book by Dr. Heather Lynn. Evil Archaeology investigates the archaeological record for artifacts and evidence of evil entities, revealing how demons from the ancient world may be dwelling among us. It also looks at the history and lore behind real relics believed to be haunted and includes historical accounts of demonic possession that go as far back as King Solomon invoking demons to help him build his famed temple. 

Is there really a prehistoric fertility goddess figure that has been known to bring death to the families of anyone who holds it? Are there real vampire graveyards? Can the archaeological record prove the existence of demons and malevolent entities? 

Some tantalizing questions Evil Archaeology addresses include: 

  • What is the origin of demons? 
  • What role did Sumerian demons play in the development of civilization? 
  • Are curses real?
  • Can material objects contain evil? What about places? 
  • What can we do to protect ourselves, according to historical records? 
  • Was Jesus an exorcist?

Scholarly

I have no idea why this work received negative feedback. True that it is a scholarly work and therefore if you are looking for sensationalism then you will be disappointed. However, this book has been written by someone who clearly has extensive academic knowledge on the subject being discussed. Highly recommended.

semi-misleading title

if interested in it for the archeology bit, be aware that that discussion is very limited. the rest is not my cup of tea.

Not exactly as it was described in summary

I am wondering if Dr. Lynn got her degrees through correspondence course because she does not seem to be "investigating" much of anything. From the description, I thought it would be about actual archeological expeditions that uncovered interesting discoveries and talk about things they found and stories/legends or beliefs about it. Instead, it was listening to urban legends in other countries. I got another audiobook about haunted artifacts and it was more interested in this. She did go into some further details but I doubt she ever went on an actual archeological dig. It was such a mess and sounds like any other book that talks about legends, myths and superstitions some of which does not seem to be researched very much and the idea that "winners write the history" is a major theme as well as things I already knew Needless to say I was VERY disappointment as it seemed more like campfire stories that I have heard many times before. It's just a book about mythology, some outdated thinking but does not really have anything to do with actual archeology, though she does used the word archeology when expalining terminology. A lot of BULL**IT.

I could have written a better book..

This book is horrible.. Total waste of time and money. I know more about these subjects than the writer, and my research is done on television. The interview with the "paranormal expert friend" was my favorite part. This guy says he was writing fictional ghost stories at age 2! I don't know about you, but wow, that's impressive! Or! a huge crock of s**t. In short, I'm ashamed I bought this, let alone sat through every agonizing minute of it, I wish I was a genius, like when I was 2 years old writing fictional ghost stories, and passed on this horrible literary classic.

Skip this one, you can thank me later

The title of this one is quite misleading -- very little of this book actually covered archaeological finds. A significant amount of the information focused on historical time periods (not artifacts) that have been covered more interestingly and thoroughly by others (witch trials, the inquisition, Greek and Roman mythologies, etc) before going on at length about pagan mythologies (think the myth of Pan or Odin). I found it to be borderline offensive to include this in a book that allegedly focuses on demons and "evil" -- I mean, aren't we passed demonizing non-Christian and pre-Christian peoples? The reason for the author's choice to include this became abundantly clear, however, as she reveals in the AFTERWORD (after much hemming and hawing and fluffing herself up to be nonbiased) that she is a practicing Christian. This brought an element of clarity to her decision to include a preacher's step by step explanation of how to "walk in warrior mode in faith" to prevent demonic possession in what is allegedly a scholarly and archaeological based work. Laughable. Narrator sounds like a robot and is an excellent remedy for insomnia.

Not all Archeology. Still worth a 5 Star review.

I saw some bad reviews on this book because she doesn’t stick to what might be defined as archeology by some of the reviewers. I still thoroughly enjoyed the subject matter and how she expands on it. Very informative and plenty of references to follow up on.

well-researched on the subject.

having spent two years in the feel the paranormal I can say that many books written about it are complete drivel. this book was well-researched well written and very unbiased on the subject. it neither attempts to validate 1 theology or viewpoint but attempts to look at the subject from a whole from multiple points of view. I recommend this book.

Interesting but not as advertised

Interesting book about all sorts of spooky, occult type stuff, not fully about evil archeology artifacts.

Excellent information

The author mixes her experience and her knowledge with written accounts from others in the field as well as with interviews with living humans. I see many negative reviews. I belueve these are sponsored by people who don't live with an open mind or that just don't care for this author. I have heard her on cost to cost and fade to black radio with Jimmy Church. She is genuine and knowledgeable. If you don't have the credentials and schooling as this author it's your opinion she is wrong. When dealing with facts as she presents them I find it difficult to say that she's foolish or unknowledgeable.
