Abstract

Believers in the Book of Mormon have long sought for archaeological evidence that supports belief in the book's claims of being an ancient American record. From time to time, suspected archaeological hoaxes have surfaced which some have attempted to use in support of the Book of Mormon. Appealing to archaeological frauds, however, is deeply problematic, and may actually damage rather than encourage faith in the Book of Mormon.
