Don't need to do that, there are enough fictional histories on the market already. Still if publishers are actually willing to print 'alternate' theories of history, based on the direction the p**s blows in the wind, then it is hardly surprising that websites crop up doing the same.
Here is an interesting example that is quite serious:
Electric Mirror on the Pharos Lighthouse and Other Ancient Lighting. Is the published book, I was asked to do a review but never had the time. It has spawned websites containing excerpts.http://ancientskyscraper.com/801.htmlhttp://einhornpress.com/default.aspx
They don't cover glass but separately but it is clearly a part of this
