Peter Kolosimo, pseudonym of Pier Domenico Colosimo (15 December 1922 – 23 March 1984), was an Italian journalist and writer. He is ranked amongst the founders of pseudoarchaeology (in Italian: fantarcheologia), a controversial topic which aims to study the origins of ancient civilizations using theories and methods not accepted by the scientific community. He also popularised ancient astronaut theories of contact between extraterrestrial beings and ancient human civilizations.
Peter Kolosimo's book was among the first to seriously investigate the bits of history and archaeology which, because they don't fit in with established thought, are either derided or hidden away. A nicely written introduction to a whole new world of strangeness, which, I am happy to say, is being investigated and questioned by more and more open minded folks, every day.
