Video on the Lead Codices

September 7, 2011

Here’s a link to a video posted on YouTube and drawing upon the work of a number of scholarly bloggers that shows something of the extent of the fakery involved in the lead codices about which there was such media attention earlier this year.  You just got to admire the dogged efforts to deceive by those behind promoting these codices!

    If all these efforts could go toward honest scholarship, much could be accomplished. However, there seems to be a financial angle at work in the forgeries. This sort of deception ought to be laid bare for all to see.

    The video is quite interesting and might be useful to show some students how real world academic work can be corrected, pitfalls to avoid, issues related to greed and publicity, etc.
