After the death of archaeologist James Mellaart in 2012 and his wife Arlette the following year, their son Alan informed me that his father’s Dorak Treasure monograph had not turned up in a search of his parents’ flat in London. But in 2018, Alan Mellaart agreed to let in Swiss geoarchaeologist Eberhard Zangger—who shared James Mellaart’s belief in the Sea People—for a more thorough investigation of the files. The elusive Dorak Treasure manuscript was found along with other fabrications.
It was good of Alan Mellaart to allow further scrutiny. The question is: Does anyone really care at this point what James Mellaart’s private machinations were?
