In this episode of Anomaly, I begin a new series that I’m calling “The Facts in Fiction”. Archaeologist Jenny McNiven and I will discuss the historical accuracies that inspired our favorite sci-fi and fantasy books, movies and TV shows. Our first edition is about the Outlander standing stones. Outlander is a British-American television drama series based on the historical time travel Outlander series of novels by Diana Gabaldon.These megalithic structures dot the British Isles and are found all over the world. We also talked about Stone Henge and Jenny’s Scottish ancestry, which she can trace back to the 18th century Inverness.
Jenny provides insights into the types of ancient stone structures existing in Great Britain, what they were most likely used for and verifies that aliens did not build them.
