And yet the thermoluminescent dates are troubling. Taken on their own, they could be viewed as suggesting that something strange was going on at le Glozel at the close of the first millennium BCE.
There are two ways to study a disputed archaeological site: you can either examine all the available data and see which hypothesis is the more likely OR you can attempt to justify a personal prejudice. The story of Glozel, with its personal rivalries and vested interests (both real and imagined) is a classic example of the unquenchable conspiracy.
