Biography

American archaeologist at Harvard University who held the title of Peabody Professor of North American Archaeology and Ethnography.

He is best known as the author of "Fantastic Archaeology" (1991) and a course at Harvard based on the same material; a critical examination of pseudoarchaeological claims such as Atlantis, Mu, fringe related pre-Columbian trans-oceanic contact theories, psychic archaeology, etc.

According to Kenneth Feder, "Williams's book is a valuable contribution to the regrettably short list of publications by professional archaeologists examining, responding to, and debunking extreme claims made in the name of the discipline."

Williams died on 2 June 2017, aged 90
