Just a thought - would this one be a good fit to fill out the "Frauds, Forgeries, and Fake News Collection 01" (viewtopic.php?f=19&t=78482)?
Hi InTheDesert, What your note brings to my mind, is that you might be just the reader fill out the "Fake News" collection with a selection from Heinrich Schliemann's works on Troy. There is a PD (1875) translation from the German here of "Troy and It's Remains." https://archive.org/details/39020025953681-troyanditsremai/page/n4/mode/1up

"Dr. Schliemann’s original narrative of his wonderful discoveries on the spot marked as the site of Homer’s Ilium by an unbroken tradition, from the earliest historic age of Greece, has a permanent value and interest which can scarcely be affected by the final verdict of criticism on the result of his discoveries." (from the preface, and signed Philip Smith, Hampstead, Christmas Eve 1874)

Of course, we'd welcome something from Schliemann here at the Short Nonfiction Collection too! :)

I thought about that but looking at the thread I wasn't sure if there were still slots left.

The PM to GabrielLuisRamirez sent 12/02 explaining procedures has not been opened. Edit to this PM on 12/7 explaining procedures again, asking that he complete edits; pointing out the 2-week deadline for edits; and providing copies of the relevant forum posts by Soupy and myself about edits needed.

He seems like an entertaining and enthusiastic guy, if not the kind of person you want drawing historical conclusions for you! Alas, my contribution to that collection is going to be the Donation of Constantine.

Hi InTheDesert, Thanks for contributing "The Early Narratives of Genesis" to vol. 079 of the SNF! :D

As to The Donation of Constantine, here you tap history about which I know nothing, but it sounds like an rich source for the LibriVox "fakes" collection! The Donation of Constantine "recounts a narrative founded on the 5th-century hagiography the Legenda S. Silvestri. This fictitious tale describes the sainted Pope Sylvester's rescue of the Romans from the depredations of a local dragon and the pontiff's miraculous cure of the emperor's leprosy by the sacrament of baptism." [Wikipedia]

Thanks for the lecture on the Bible and science InTheDesert : :D

These same ideas are still debated today.

Here's an interesting one, though it is obscured by probably the most unimaginative book title ever.

"Miss Morrison's Account of the First Visit to the Petit Trianon" from "An Adventure" by Moberly, C. A. E. (Charlotte Anne Elizabeth), 1846-1937; Jourdain, Eleanor F. (Eleanor Frances), 1863-1924

She rose to fame following a claim that she and a fellow teacher, Charlotte Anne Moberly, had slipped back in time to the period of the French Revolution while on a trip to Versailles, known as the Moberly–Jourdain incident. She and Moberly wrote a book together about the experience. The book was published pseudonymously; their identity was not revealed until the mid-1920s, after Jourdain's death. The book was a best seller but attracted much criticism.

Thanks, Piotr! I think this selection will be a hit with listeners! :) [I'm predicting this because, after skimming the text to see what it was all about, I stopped to read the two long reviews from readers on the archive.org page...]

Thanks Sue.

People chasing down cats throughout the State of Illinois. It sounds like a physical education progam. Wouldn't that be a sight to see :D

Our dog was escorted home by the police for wandering around the neighborhood once.

Indeed, they were comparing notes, as it were. Except I decided to only read the first account.
