Large Human Skeleton Discovered at the New Castle, Indiana Earthwork Complex




Biographical Memoirs of Henry County Indiana, 1902 
  William H. Albright remained upon the home farm during his youth and attained a fair education in the common schools of his neighborhood. He has taken much interest in the investigation of the noted mounds, one which he opened containing the skeleton of a giant human being.

The skull was a half inch in thickness and under it were found twelve flint arrow heads.
