Paul Devereux: Mysterious Ancient America
Paul Devereux (born 1945) is an author, researcher, lecturer, broadcaster, artist and photographer based in England. Devereux is a co-founder and the managing editor of the academic publication Time & Mind – the Journal of Archaeology, Consciousness and Culture, a research associate with the Royal College of Art (2007-2013), and a Research Fellow with the International Consciousness Research Laboratories (ICRL) group at Princeton University.
His work primarily deals with archaeological themes, especially archaeoacoustics (the study of sound at archaeological sites), the anthropology of consciousness (ancient and pre-modern worldviews), ecopsychology, unusual geophysical phenomena, and consciousness studies, spanning the range from academic to popular. Some of these apparently disparate topics merge in a few of his writings. He has written or co-written 28 books since 1979, and has also written a range of peer-reviewed academic papers and many articles for more popular publications.
Adam Young’s Media Suggestions:
1) National Geographic Documentary: Lost Treasures of the Maya Snake King
This is a conventional scientific community point of view. The researchers discuss using LIDAR to demonstrate how the Mayan civilization was much more developed and larger than previously thought. It shows how sometimes modern technology can help to change the narrative of what was once accepted as fact. The population in Tikal alone is now thought to be 5 times larger than previously thought.
