A researcher who uses carbon dating on ancient items
The report shows quite clearly that the team uncovered numerous giants, one of which was 7’6”tall and decorated with six heavy copper bracelets on each wrist and on his shoulder were three large plates of mica.
In another mound, they found a circle of ten skeletons surrounding another giant skeleton, as well as underground vaults, various copper and mica ornaments, religious items, pipes and spearheads.
They decided to take the oddity home and later cracked it open with a hammer and a chisel.
Ironically, what they found within seemed to be an archaic hammer of sorts.
It bears a striking carving of a roaring lion’s head on one side and a double-square incuse punch created by a hammer during the minting process on the other.
Then, at a depth of nine feet, another giant skeleton was found in the remains of a bark coffin and it was noted in their report that this giant had a skull, which was of “the compressed or flat-head type.” In other words, this skeleton exhibited conehead characteristics similar to those found in South America and Egypt.
As digs progressed in other parts of the state, archaeologists in Wheeling, WV found another grouping a giants ranging in height from 6’7” to 7’6” and also displaying unusual skull formations with low foreheads that sloped back gradually, “while the back part of the head is very prominent, much more so than the skulls of people living today.” Adjacent to these finds, an eight-mile wall and a hilltop temple were also found in Marshall County on Mount Carbon.
Every once in a while, archaeologists (and sometimes amateur archaeologists) make remarkable and bizarre discoveries.
Sometimes, the finding is so surprising that they are unable to explain what it is they’ve found, how it came into existence, or ascertain its value.
So when we can unearth an artifact and say this one is “the first,” or at least the oldest one we have, it has a deep significance. Because the definition of a book has been debated since the very beginning of literature, that’s a hard question to answer and could easily encompass another whole article.
