Public Lecture: Lynne Kelly -- A Skeptic Tackles Stonehenge

When: Saturday, Februrary 11, 2017 @ 3:00 PM 
Where: Jefferson Market Library (425 Ave of the Americas at 10th Street)

There are more crazy theories about Stonehenge than any other place in the world. So what happens when a hard-core skeptic claims to have solved one of the world’s greatest mysteries? And then gets even wilder by claiming that the same thinking also explains Easter Island, the Nasca Lines and lots of other mysterious sites around the world? It’s all to do with the extraordinary methods that non-literate cultures use to memorize the vast amount of rational information on which their survival depends.

Dr. Lynne Kelly is a founding member of the Australian Skeptics. With degrees in Engineering, IT, Education, and a doctorate in Arts, she has published sixteen books including The Skeptic's Guide to the Paranormal and the two books based on her PhD research, Knowledge and Power in Prehistoric Societies (Cambridge University Press) and The Memory Code.
