Prof. Michael Bisson provided the initial impetus for the project by enabling the Pseudoarchaeology seminar to be offered at McGill. Special thanks go out to Julia Pope for her work on the graphic design for the site. Finally, all the young scholars in ANTH480 deserve great credit for stimulating discussions and provocative research that makes PARA a worthwhile endeavour.
