Archaeotrollism is a term that describes the trolling activity in matters of archaeology. This protologism was coined by Ted Papakostas, a Greek archaeologist and instagrammer, who cultivates “what is called ‘pop archaeology’ through his Instagram project @archaeostoryteller”, by “introduc[ing] a fun way of perceiving the past and denounce the notion that antiquity is sacred and untouchable’ by making archaeological information plain yet accurate and enjoyable to a wider audience”.[1]
