Maritime Archaic Slate Points Dating 3,000 B.C. Found in Northern Indiana

Maritime Archaic Slate Points Dating 3,000 B.C. found in Northern Indiana


The slate points on the left are from Maine and were illustrated in The Lost Red Paint People of Maine, 1930 by Walter Brown Smith.To the right are identical slate points found in Dekalb County, Indiana and photographed by Cameron Parks. Many of the skeletal remains of the Maritime Archaic were giants, more on Indiana's ancient giants here https://youtu.be/lgY4LXL4xjY



Brewerton points are found throughout northern Ohio and into northwest Indiana. There have been two historical reports of Maritime Archaic artifacts in Northeast Indiana. Mark Schurr, from Indiana University did an archaeological survey of Lagrange County and concluded that prior to 1,500 B.C. the cultural influence of the county was from the northeast and also diagrammed a few Red Paint People/Maritime Archaic points. In another paper entitled “Slate Artifacts from Dekalb County, Indiana,” submitted to the Indiana Historical Society by Cameron Parks who was a local collector of artifacts in Northeast Indiana. Parks photographed several of the slate points and realized that they were identical to points that are found in the northeast and found with the Maritime people.

Oldest Burial Mound in Michigan Dating as Early as 3,000 B.C. Belongs to the Maritime Archaic

Oldest Burial Mound in Michigan Belongs to the Maritime Archaic


     The Brewerton phase was formulated by William Ritchie in the 1930s dating as early as 3,000 B.C. According to Ritchie the distribution was chiefly N.Y. and southern Ontario. Evidence presented here proves that the Brewerton were further south and west than Ritchie believed. Associated with the Brewerton are winged bannerstones, polished gouges, adzes, celts, slate arrows and spears, plummets, bone awls gouges, mullers and shallow mortars. They also had contact with the “Copper Culture” and many times copper weapons are found within their burials. Cremations in sub-surface burial pits or skeletons placed in a sitting or spoked position was the most common type of burials, sometimes dogs also accompany the dead.
      In a paper called “Prehistoric Man on Martha’s Vineyard,” by James B. Richardson III, he reported a dog in a pit burial that was filled with shells and also included Brewerton points in adjoining shell mounds. This shows that there is an amount of gray area in classifying a site as a Laurentian Shell Mound or a Brewerton burial.


This mound at Croton Dam in Newaygo County, Michigan. In these mounds were found subsurface cremations, copper spear-points, stemmed points, copper beads, beaver incisors, stone drills, copper needles, red ochre, fire kits, and a childs burial that was accompanied by a dog. Burial traits and artifacts resemble the Martime Archaic more than Woodland period.

Giant Native American Skelelton Unearthed in Richmond, Virginia

Giant Native American Skelelton Unearthed in Richmond, Virginia


Paterson Daily Press, May 25, 1867
Fragments of a huge human skeleton were dug up Friday in Richmond, Virginia.  From calculation the skeleton entire must have measured seven feet, and belonged, perhaps, to some famous Indian brave.

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.

Mortared Arched Stone Tomb Contained Eight Nephilim Giants in Burlington, Iowa

Mortared Arched Stone Tomb Contained Eight Nephilim Giants in Burlington, Iowa


Arched stone tombs were found within burial mounds across Iowa.  Many of these stone tombs contained the remains of giant humans.

The Grand River Times (Grand Haven, Michigan) May 21, 1856

Western Giants in Their Slumber
The Burlington Iowa Gazette says that while workmen were engaged in excavating for the celler of Gov. Grimes new building on the corner of Main and Valley Street, they came upon an arched vault some ten feet square, which, on being opened, was found to contain eight human skeletons of gigantic proportions.  The walls of the vault were about fourteen inches thick, well laid up with cement or indestructible mortar.  The vault is about six feet deep fro the base to the arch.  The skeletons are in a good state of preservation, and we adventure to say are the largest human remains ever found, being over eight feet long.

University of Oklahoma Anthropologist Describe Ancient Giant Humans Discovered

University of Oklahoma Anthropologist Describe Ancient Giant Humans Discovered



Reading Eagle, May 24, 1937
Skeletons of Indians Over Seven Feet Tall
     Norman, Oklahoma, May 24, (U.P.) - Six giant skeletons of a strange tribe of Indians more than seven feet tall have been uncovered along the banks of the Washita River, in South Central Oklahoma.  Dr. Forrest E. Clements head of the of the department of anthropology of the University Oklahoma, disclosed today.
     The skeletons, are all well preserved were found by Dr. Clements and members of his party yesterday.  He believed the find might lead to the discovery of  a race of Indians whose existence was unknown to anthropologists.
     He estimated the race existed 750 years ago.  Four of the skeletons were of adults, and two of children.  Collapse of a section of the river bank along the Washita 10 days ago led to the discovery. A farmer found a skull and notified authorities.

Smithsonian Archaeologists Remove an 8 Foot Nephilim Giant from an Illinois Burial Mound

Smithsonian Archaeologists Remove an 8 Foot Nephilim Giant from an Illinois Burial Mound





12th Annual Report of the Bureau of Ethnology to the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, 1890-1891
Dunleith Illinois
        No. 5, the largest of the group was carefully examined. Two feet below the surface, near the apex, was a skeleton, doubtless an intrusive Indian burial...Near the original surface, 10 or 12 feet from the center, on the lower side, lying at full length on its back, was one of the largest skeletons discovered by the Bureau agents, the length as proved by actual measurement being between 7 and 8 feet. It was clearly traceable, but crumbled to pieces immediately after removal from the hard earth in which it was encased.

Nephilim Graveyard Uncovered in Mansfield, Ohio

Nephilim Graveyard Uncovered in Mansfield, Ohio




The Mansfield Herald, January 16, 1873
RELICS OF A PAST RACE
       On the farm of Mr. Harrison Whaley, near Mansfield, in this county, is a skirt of woods which possess characteristics of deep interest. About three inches beneath the surface of the entire tract may be found innumerable bones, evidently the remains of an extinct species of the human race.  Several mounds are in the woods, and one which has been partially explored were found skulls and bones, which from their size, must have belonged to a race of beings far more gigantic than the race which now inhabits the earth.  In this mound were also found many clay utensils and arrowhead cut out of solid rock, and pipes of the same material.
      Was the place once a battleground, where the aborigines fought to maintain the glory of their prospective tribes? Or was it a common burial ground? The first seems to be a more plausible theory insomuch as the whole tract, covering at least fifteen acres, has multitudes of human bones but a few inches below the surface It is evident they were never buried, but originally lay exposed to view until the accumulated deposits of time formed the black rich soil which covers them.

7 1/2 Foot Nephilim Giant Removed From A Charleston, West Virginia Burial mound

7 1/2 Foot  Nephilim Giant Removed From A Charleston, West Virginia Burial mound

Current photo of the Smith mound in South Charleston, West Virginia. This mound was flanked by two solar temples called henges that were 666 feet in circumference.  666 was the Nephilim Amorites Gematria number for the Sun Father.

17th Report Peabody Museum
A large mound situated on the farm of Col. B. H. Smith, near Charleston, is conical in form, about 175 feet in diameter at the base and 35 feet high. It appears to be double; that is to say, it consists of two mounds, one built on the other, the lower or original one 20 feet and the upper 15 feet high.
The exploration was made by sinking a shaft, 12 feet square at the top and narrowing gradually to 6 feet square at the bottom, down through the center of the structure to the original surface of the ground and a short distance below it. After removing a slight covering of earth, an irregular mass of large, rough, flat sandstones, evidently brought from the bluffs half a mile distant, was encountered. Some of these sandstones were a good load for two ordinary men.
The removal of a wagon load or so of these stones brought to light a stone vault 7 feet long and 4 feet deep, in the bottom of which was found a large and much decayed human skeleton, but wanting the head, which the most careful examination failed to discover. A single rough spear head was the only accompanying article found in this vault. At the depth of 6 feet, in earth similar to that around the base of the mound, was found a second skeleton, also much decayed, of an adult of ordinary size. At 9 feet a third skeleton was encountered, in a mass of loose, dry earth, surrounded by the remains of a bark coffin. This was in a much better state of preservation than the other two. The skull, which was preserved, is of the compressed or " flat-head" type.

"Flathead" type of skull are of the Dinarics whose skull types have been found at the Gates of Damascus in Jerusalem, Israel where it was described as, "massive."  This skull type is also associated with the Beaker People who constructed Stonehenge.
For some 3 or 4 feet below this the earth was found to be mixed with ashes. At this depth in his downward progress Colonel Norris began to encounter the remains of what further excavation showed to have been a timber vault, about 12 feet square and 7 or 8 feet high. From the condition in which the remains of the cover were found, he concludes that this must have been roof-shaped, and, having become decayed, was crushed in by the weight of the addition made to the mound. Some of the walnut timbers of this vault were as much as 12 inches in diameter.

The Smith mound is in the middle of two henges that were 666 feet in circumference. The gateways of the henges are aligned to the summer and winter solstices.
In this vault were found five skeletons, one lying prostrate on the floor at the depth of 19 feet from the top of the mound, and four others, which, from the positions in which they were found, were supposed to have been placed standing in the four corners. The first of these was discovered at the depth of 14 feet, amid a commingled mass of earth and decaying bark and timbers, nearly erect, leaning against the wall, and surrounded by the remains of a bark coffin. All the bones except those of the left forearm were too far decayed to be saved; these were preserved by two heavy copper bracelets which yet surrounded them.
The skeleton found lying in the middle of the floor of the vault was of unusually large size, "measuring 7 feet 6 inches  between the shoulder sockets." It had also been inclosed in a wrapping or coffin of bark, remains of which were still distinctly visible. It lay upon the back, head east, legs together, and arms by the sides. There were six heavy bracelets on each wrist; four others were found under the head, which, together with a spear-point of black flint, were incased in a mass of mortar like substance, which had evidently been wrapped in some textile fabric. Ou the breast was a copper gorget (Fig. 21). In each hand were three spear-heads of black flint, and others were about the head, knees, and feet. Near the right hand were two hematite celts, and on the shoulder were three large and thick plates of mica. About the shoulders, waist, and thighs were numerous minute perforated shells and shell beads

SEPULCHER UNEARTHED
Containing the Skeletons of Prehistoric Giants
     Pine Grove, Kentucky - Evidences of a prehistoric race have been uncovered by Hugh Yates, a prosperous land owner of this country, on his farm, a few miles from here.  While excavating beneath a high cliff on his place, Mr. Yates came upon an immense grave containing a human skeleton. The frame was of giant proportions.
His curiosity aroused.  Mr. Yates called in some neighbors, and armed with picks, they burrowed their way into the side of the cliff and found an ancient sepulcher crowded with human skeletons, some of them larger than one first found.  One of the frames measured 12 feet.
Along with the skeletons were found curiously wrought jewels and strange ornaments, while cooking vessels and musical intruments of queer design were unearthed in great profusion. The diggers are still at work and expect to make even more imortant finds.

MOUND GIANTS IN INDIANA SAID TO ANTEDATE INDIAN
South bend, Indiana - Eight skeletons, one of them clad in copper armor, and a heard of rare war weapons and bits of personal adornment have been found in a mysterious mound on the farm of Grove Vosburg near Walkerton.
Vosburg, a 70 year old farmer, had long desired to know the secret of the mount, which, according to local tradition dates back thousands of years. Secretly excavating the pile of earth he came upon a strange burial place.
Giant Skeletons
The eight skeletons lay in circular formation, arranged like the spokes of a wheel, with skulls together.  Copper breastplates, bands and other bits of armor adorned the skeleton on one man, who apparently had been of giant stature.  Embedded in this skull was a beautifully chipped arrowhead.
The soft earth of the mound revealed other treasures. Three pounds of ore, believed to be either silver or white gold, lie with the bones. There were corroded copper bands, which antiquarians here believe were used to bind war clubs, two pipe bowls, one of smooth black stone and the other carved replica of a fantastic monster, were found.
The belief that the bones are not those of Indians, but belonged to the ancient and little known race of mound builders has arisen because of the great size of the bones and the fact that the skull formations are not those of the Indian types.  The skulls seem to have little forehead and the eye cavities are high in the head

Smithsonian Reports Two Skeletons as "Very Large" from a South Charleston, West Virginia Burial Mound


Twelfth annual report of the Bureau of Ethnology to the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, 1890-91



Mound 31, where two skeletons described by Smithsonian scientists  as "very large" were interred facing each other.

Mound 31 of this group seems to furnish a connecting link between the West Virginia and the Ohio mounds. It is sharp in outline, has a steep slope, and is flattened on the top; is 318 feet in circumference at the base and about 25 feet high. It was opened by digging a shaft 10 feet in diameter from the center of the' top to the base. After passing through the top layer of surface soil, some 2 feet thick, a layer of clay and ashes 1 foot thick was encountered. Here, near the center of the shaft, were two skeletons, lying horizontally, one immediately over the other, the upper and larger one with the face down and the lower with the face up. There were no indications of fire about them.




    Immediately over the heads were one celt and three lance-heads. At the depth of 13 feet and a little north of the center of the mound were two very large skeletons, in a sitting posture, with their extended legs interlocked to the knees. Their arms were extended and their hands slightly elevated, as if together holding up a sandstone mortar which was between their faces. This stone is somewhat hemispherical, about 2 feet in diameter across the top, which is hollowed in the shape of a shallow basin or mortar. It had been subjected to the action of fire until burned to a bright red. The cavity was filled with white ashes, containing small fragments of bones burned to cinders. Immediately over this, and of sufficient size to cover it, was a slab of bluish-gray limestone about 3 inches thick, which had small cup-shaped excavations on the under side. This bore no marks of fire. Near the hands of the eastern skeleton were a small hematite celt and a lance-head, and upon the left wrist of the other two copper bracelets. At the depth of 25 feet, and ou the natural surface, was found what in an Ohio mound would have been designated an " altar." This was not thoroughly traced throughout, but was about 12 feet long and over 8 feet wide, of the form shown in Fig. 24.

Annual Report of the Bureau of Ethnology to the Smithsonian Institute, Volume 5, Parts 1883-1884

A large mound situated on the farm of Col. B. H. Smith, near Charleston, is conical in form, about 175 feet in diameter at the base and 35 feet high.

Springfield Globe Republic, Feb. 2 1886
TWO HUMAN SKELETONS FOUND
     Charleston, West Virginia, Feb. 2 - News has just been received from Winfield, Putnam county, of the strange discovery of two human skeletons lying on a floating cake of ice, in the Kanawha River, near Red House Shoals, Sunday.  The skeletons were in a good state of preservation and were evidently the frames of large men. Some fragments of clothing surrounded the bones, but nothing to indicate in any degree the identity of the deceased, or the locality from whence they floated on the ice.
