The blistering report is so bad, Elkington preemptively played the persecuted card and scrubbed the Facebook page.
Mr Elkington, 50, claims to have previously published a “highly-acclaimed academic thesis” and to have trained under a curator of the Petrie Museum in London.
His book was a self-published work and the woman he trained under was never the curator of the Petrie museum.
He says he has a team of international experts working on the Codices but was only prepared to offer the names of two academics currently advising him. They declined to comment.
