Not well known outside of France, l’Affaire Glozel still puzzles to this day.

Located in France this was touted as a premier Neolithic site. It was attacked by the orthodox French scientific establishment.

Glozel is probably best known as the place where, from 1924 to 1930, over 3,000 artifacts were discovered, including clay tablets, sculptures and vases, some of which were inscribed with symbols or letters.

The finders a peasant and a boy were declared frauds, their finds recent manufactures and the site discredited. Decades later the items were tested and found to be from a range of ages, old but not neolithic



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.


A report from Bad Archaeology

Continuation of the Bad Achaeology story



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.


For those who like You Tube (in French)

Interesting find, Hans. I'd never heard of this one before (but admit to not being that well read on some of these issues.) I'll have to check for more recent publications -- surely someone's gone back over the data again.

The latest was 1995 that I can find.

Its well known in French circles. When I was working in Cyprus there was a French team working on Greek pottery timelines nearby and we use to share meals and resources. One of the older potheads use to talk about it and since he made food that was unbelievably good we let him go on and on about it. In French of course.

I have read about this find. Even if it is all a hoax, it is still very interesting as to who and why. I hope they can sort everything out to see what came from where. I am getting confused just by writing this!
Thank you for the links.

It is an interesting site. Puzzling. A summary would be: A real site contaminated with frauds. The odd writing is a head scratcher too.

Ho yes, someone did actually gone back to the “Chant des Morts”.
The group that went there for further research and excavation were the official scientific community.
Now, all the data and report are been sealed from the public. No one have access to this.
You are talking about a conspiracy of denying the truth about the so called “l’affaire Gozel”.
Behind this conspiracy I can really see why they will not publish the report, the so called writing on certain potteries and tablets found at the site are been dated between 1000 years to 15000years.
All prehistoric theory and history will have to be rewritten but also the implications that humans in prehistory were fare more advance then orthodox science like believe will open the Pandora box of a certain mythology that could actually bee true after all.
