Archaeology Photoshop Contest

Worth1000 are running a Photoshop competition entitled “Archaeology Anomolies“.

In this contest you will create a hoax archaeological discovery (i.e. Atlantis, a 2,000 year-old Coca-Cola can or a giant’s skull). Be open minded, there are many mysteries buried beneath the earth.

The rules of this game are thus:
You are to create an archaeological hoax. Your job is to show a picture of an archaeological discovery that looks so real, had it not appeared at Worth1000, people might have done a double take. As always, quality is a must. We will remove poor entries no matter how much we like you. You’ll have 48 hours for this contest, so make your submission count.

As an archaeologist with a surreal sense of humour, this really appeals to me!

[UPDATE] One of my photos of a beaker from the grave of the Boscombe Bowmen has been used in the competition, adorned with Mickey Mouse. Not entirely original, but not a bad Photoshop job…
