18 Inch Ancient Human Mummy Discovered in New Mexico

Eighteen Inch Ancient Human Mummy Discovered in New Mexico



The Colonist, Volume LIV, October 21, 1912

EIGHTEEN-INCH MUMMY
    An ancient mummy, eighteen inches high, in a good state of preservation, has been found at the cliff dwellings on the Upper Gila, near Silver City, New Mexico, and instruction have been received to forward it to the Smithsonian Institution at Washington.  Careful examination confirms the idea of many scientists that the old cliff men were a dwarf race.  The most striking features of their dwellings were very small doorways and extremely low ceilings.
