Genetics, Archaeology & The Far Right with Dr. Susanne Hakenbeck - Episode 4 - Modern Myth

This episode is about the Modern Myth of genetics, race and archaeology that permeates through far right online spaces. Discussions over one’s personal ancestry from DNA testing kits, the fall of Rome and modern migration into Europe. Dr. Susanne Hakenbeck is a senior lecturer in historical archaeology at the University of Cambridge and her recent paper, Genetics, archaeology and the far right: an unholy Trinity identifies the ways in which extremist online spaces foster racist ideas about the past. However it is in many ways the genetic research uses unclear terms and casually equates genetic population and ethnic groups that allow the data to be easily co-opted by the right.

Insurgent Empire and the Lost Voices in Colonialism with Dr. Priyamvada Gopal - Modern Myth - Episode 3

In this episode of Modern Myth, we begin to unravel the lesser known history of colony and the nuacned ways in which people occupied the British Imperial space. Talking with Cambridge Reader, Dr. Priyamvada Gopal about her new book Insurgent Empire, Tristan asks what voices are unaccounted for in traditional retellings of the British Empire and why does that have an effect on the modern narrative. The many modern myths of colony are outlined and discussed as well as what the future holds in terms of solidarity with the world.

I Agree with Graham Hancock!? -Modern Myth Moment - I

Ok, before you type your strongly worded tweet or you decide to #cancel me please give me a moment to explain. As has been highlighted recently, archaeology has a problem with impact with getting the information out there. Perhaps there’s nothing wrong with the food, its just the service isn’t what you want.

With his new book released graham hancock appeared on the Joe Rogan show and obviously talked at length about his book, he made some salient points and importantly he tied himself to those ideas and that’s where I think we can learn something about outreach.

If you want to argue, tweet at me or send me an email:

Episode 2 : The Modern Myth of Nuclear Power with Martin Pfeiffer

Quick, Marty, we gotta save the world! From what!? From nuclear annihilation.

Perhaps not so grand, but in this Modern Myth episode we get to grips with the ideas behind nuclear weapons and the boogeyman of radiation, Martin Pfeiffer is a PhD student researching nuclear anthropology and loves going into musems to #LickTheBomb, (he tells us how their casings taste) and what it means to be an activist for denuclearisation of the modern world.

Episode 1 : The Modern Myth of Brexit with Kenny Brophy

Brexit, it's a word we hear all too often, no doubt we are fatigued by it. But in the cusp of its realization perhaps we should look how we got here. What helped create the narrative and  what information was drawn upon in order to make it seem that leaving the EU was the decision to vote for, at least for three majority of people.


I speak to Kenny Brophy from the University of Glasgow about his paper Brexit And Prehistory about the ways in which narratives were created and how people use symbols of the past to create their own narratives, and in some cases their own cairns.
