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
