Using the Kensington Runestone and other objects as examples, archeologist Mike Michlovic hopes to show the dimensions of alternative beliefs about the past in the contemporary Midwestern U.S. and illustrate some of the cultural and social factors involved in sustaining those beliefs. These may involve religious beliefs, political loyalties, ethnic affiliations or economic considerations. Alternative beliefs that run contrary to professional findings, whether historical or archeological, are widespread in contemporary society, and proliferate rapidly in electronic media.

This program is funded in part by Augustana College’s Mellon Fund Committee, Augustana College’s Archeology Laboratory and the Sioux Falls Chapter of the South Dakota Archaeological Society
