Re:: Academics patronising attitudes?
I attended a lecture about Earl Henry Sinclair by Tim
Wallace-Murphy at the Orkney Science festival two
years ago. Two members in the audience accused
Mr Murphy of inaccuracies and inventions. In my
opinion he failed to defend himself effectively
against their charges. In view of that, I humbly
suggest that Mr Murphy shouldn't lecture others about
inaccuracies and inventions.
On a separate matter. I have just been told by an
Orcadian friend that a well-documented article
exposing the 'Henry Sinclair/America' story is about
to appear in this month's The New Orkney Antiquarian
Journal',published by Orkney Heritage Society. It
should be available shortly from The Orcadian
Bookshop, Kirkwall,Orkney, Scotland, UK. Essential
reading I would suggest!
