Your Daily Giant 1/16/2013

The Grave Creek Mound located in present day Moundsville West Virginia. Built by the Adena culture between 250-150 B.C. When the colonists showed up they encountered over 200,000 earthen mounds, pyramids, geometric forms and effigies of amazing size. 60,000 tons of earth needed to be moved to create the burial mound. Beside the grave creek tablet, a sandstone tablet with strange writing, some other interesting things were found in the mound, let's take a look.
Charleston Daily Mail, October 22, 1922
“Skeletons in Mound”
"One of the most interesting of the five state parks is Mound Park, at Moundsville from which that city derived its name. Probably no other relic of pre-historic origin has attracted as wide study among archaeologists as the Grave Creeks mound which has given up skeletons of the ancients who constructed it. Aside from the mammoth tumulus, itself 69 feet high and 900 feet in circumference, there were originally no fewer than seven mounds situated in the broad plain at the point. None was nearly equal to the one now standing, and the locations of most of the smaller ones are now lost to all excepting a few. Archaeologists investigating the mound some years ago dug out a skeleton said to be that of a female because of the formation of the bones. The skeleton was seven feet four inches tall and the jawbone would easily fit over the face of a man weighing 160 pounds. Seventeen hundred ivory beads, 500 seashells of an involute species and five copper bracelets were found in the vault. The beads and shells were about the neck and breast of the skeleton while the bracelets were upon the arms. There was also taken from the mound the skeleton of a man eight feet tall. There were no ornaments beside it. These skeletons were sent to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington."
Thanks to Fritz Zimmerman for this find, he has compiled hundreds of accounts in his book "The Nephilim Chronicles". Do I have to state the obvious, where are the skeletons and the Smithsonian is involved again.
