Pseudoarchaeology and the Racism Behind Ancient Aliens Theories

 While the general outlines of this are now well-known, I found this old text well-argued:

Pseudoarchaeology and the Racism Behind Ancient Aliens Where, exactly, the idea of ancient aliens building the pyramids began — and why some academics think racism lies at the heart of many extraterrestrial theories. by Sarah E. Bond Hyperallergic November 13, 2018

Vignette (from the article, note the implications): "A female Egyptian head with an elongated skull is likely a depiction of the child of Amenophis IV/Akhenaten, (1351-1334 BCE) and is a forgery executed in the style  of the 18th Dynasty, Amarna Period , limestone and red paint, Walters Art Museum (image via the Walters Art Museum creative commons)."
