    Motel of the Mysteries PDF/EPUB ã Motel of PDF/EPUB motel pdf, mysteries ebok, Motel of free, Motel of the Mysteries MOBII've read uite a few of David Macauley's books mostly the ones like Castle meticulously illustrated and highly researched nonfiction Motel of the Mysteries is another thing entirely Set nearly two millenia after the destruction of the US apparently by being buried under a junk mail explosion it describes the excavation of a motel as interpretted by archeologist Howard Carson See what he did there If so you are the target audience It can be a pretty funny book driven by Carson's wildly inaccurate yet oddly understandable conclusions about the site Obviously it's a burial chamber motel room with altar TV and sarcophagus bathtub The joke can run a bit thin towards the end though the reproductions available for sale at the museum gift shop ended the book on a high note Silly though it is it does raise a few good uestions How much do we really know about prehistory What has archeology really taught us about the past And most impor

    Motel of the Mysteries PDF/EPUB ã Motel of PDF/EPUB motel pdf, mysteries ebok, Motel of free, Motel of the Mysteries MOBIThis book has one comedic idea that future archaeologists unaware of how our technology is used will misinterpret their function and assume most items had a religious purpose It's an absurdist anti intellectual work that tries to be funny but failed for me Mildly amusing in the first few pages but once you perceive the one idea it has it becomes predictable and tedious for the remainder
