I don't think Grahams work is in any way feared by the academic community, his books are seen as somewhere in between a travelogue and a Victorian boys novel about discovering lost cities...i'm not knocking them as i enjoy them...but it must be realised they are popular entertainment works.

Graham often readily states in his books he's a journalist who simply gathers facts and creates a story, these rely on intrigue and mystery to have any value and things to stir the imagination....those of overactive imagination assimilate the icons and artifacts presented in these books into their own personal belief systems.

Its worth pointing out Grahams reliance on others to discover and evaluate and protect archaelogy, the lamentably derided 'orthodox' professionals who do all the digging but seldom get the glory....he's seen within the academic world as a man who discovered the lost city of Atlantis in Antartica (sort of...).
