TV archaeology update As I posted here, I bought the DVD set of Kolchak: The Night Stalker a while back and have been slowly watching my way through it. I watched one last night called The Energy Eater in which an Indian god ("Machemondo") is brought back to life after a hospital was built on the site he resided in. Archaeologically, they go back to Indian legends and European mentionings of him, blah blah blah. Unfortunately, they go a bit off the rails at one point when the supposed expert, a latter-day Indian shaman, points to some petroglyphs in a book that were "from the Neanderthal period". Oye.
