Mammoth Cave
In the 1920s, it is reported that a mummy with red hair measuring 3 feet tall was found on a ledge in Mammoth Cave, KY


In 1837, a number of tiny human skeletons from 3 to 4 1/2 feet tall were found buried in tiny wooden coffins near Cochocton, Ohio. There were no artifacts found, but the number of
graves led one observer to note that they "must have been ten
ants of a considerable city."

Gentlemen's Magazine, 3:8:182, 1837.

A short distance from Cochocton, Ohio, U.S., a singular ancient burying-ground has lately been discovered. "It is situated," says a writer in Silliman's Journal, "on one of those
elevated, gravelly alluvions, so common on the rivers of the West. From some remains of wood, still apparent in the earth around the bones, the bodies seem all to have been deposited in coffins;
and what is still more curious, is the fact that the bodies buried here were generally not more than from three to four and a half feet in length. They are very numerous, and must have been
tenants of a considerable city, or their numbers could not have been so great. A large number of graves have been opened, the inmates of which are all of this pygmie race. No metallic articles or
utensils have yet been found to throw light on the period or the nation to which they belonged."


A Pygmie Graveyard in Tennessee

Anthropological Institute, Journal, 6:100, 1876.

An ancient graveyard of vast proportions has been found in Coffee county. It is similiar to those found in White county and other places in middle Tennessee, but is vastly more extensive, and
shows that the race of pygmies who once inhabited this country were very numerous. The same peculiarities of position Observed in the White county graves are found in these. The writer of the
letter says: "Some considerable excitement and curiousity took place a few days since, near Hillsboro, Coffee county, on James Brown's farm. A man was ploughing in a field which had been
cultivated many years, and ploughed up a man's skull and other bones. After making further examination they found that there were about six acres in the graveyard. They were buried in a sitting
or standing position. The bones show that they were a dwarf tribe of people, about three feet high. It is estimated that there were about 75,000 to 100,000 buried there. This shows that this
country was inhabited hundreds of years ago."


Towards the end of the 19th century hundreds of extraordinary flint tools were unearthed beneath the moorland peat of east Lancashire's Pennine Hill
s. By their miniature size,
they seemed not to belong in the province of man, but rather in the realm of Gnomes, Elves and Faeries.

Pedro Mountain

The mummified remains of a tiny humanoid like being were discovered by some gold prospectors.
The mummy was determined to be an authentic human being, a full grown adult, a bit
under 2 feet tall. Like so many controversial finds, the remains have been stolen.

From Mysteries of the Unexplained,
Reader's Digest General Books,
The Reader's Digest Association, 1982.

He was found sitting cross-legged on a ledge in a small cave in a granite mountain. His hands were folded in his lap, in the timeless attitude of a Buddha. He appeared to be middle-aged. His skin
was brown and wrinkled, his nose flat, the forehead low, the mouth broad and thin-lipped. And he was 14 inches tall.

The mummy was discovered in 1932 by gold prospectors blasting the walls of a gulch in the Pedro Mountains, 60 miles southwest of Casper, Wyoming. After studying it, puzzled scientists
ventured the theory that it was a mummified pygmy and possibly the progenitor of the American Indian. When it died, it was given a ceremonial burial.

Displayed in sideshows for several years, the Pedro Mountain Mummy was eventually purchased by Ivan T. Goodman, a Casper businessman, and taken to New York City. The remains, X-rayed
by Dr. Harry Shapiro of the American Museum of Natural History and certified as genuine by the Anthropology Department of Harvard University, was thought by some to be those of a 65-year-old
person. The speculation generated interest in the legends of the Shoshone and Crow Indians of Wyoming about a miniature people, only inches tall.

Following Goodman's death in 1950 the mummy passed into the hands of one Leonard Waller and dissapeared, but interest in it continued nationwide. In 1979 pictures of Shapiro's X-rays were
given to Dr. George Gill, professor of anthropology at the University of Wyoming. The withered little body, he concluded, was that of an infant or a fetus, possibly of an unknown tribe of prehistoric
Indians. He believed that the infant had been afflicted with anencephaly, a congenital abnormality that would account for the adult proportions of its skeleton. Discoveries of mummified remains
are not uncommon in Wyoming, which has an arid climate. As Dr. Gill pointed out, the Indians may have found other mummies of similarly diseased infants and quite naturally assumed that they
were the remains of small adults. This in turn would tend to support the legend of a "little people."

But Pedro, as the mummy is known, remains a scienfitic curiosity. "All we have are tantalizing bits of information," Dr. Gill remarked. He and other anthropologists still hope to locate the missing
mummy for further examination. (The Casper Star-Tribune, July 22 and July 24, 1979; The Casper Tribune Herald, October 22, 1932; C.J. Cazeau and Stuart D. Scott, Exploring the Unknown, p.


Following is a recent report announcing a most incredible  'discovery' of a new race of Little People.

How amazing that such work has come to such a shock to the science world, when I along with other researchers
have had data on our sites evidencing this race for years...smiles

AP) In a breathtaking discovery, scientists working on a remote Indonesian island say they have uncovered the bones of a human dwarf species marooned for eons while modern man rapidly colonized the rest of the

One tiny specimen, an adult female measuring about 3 feet tall, is described as "the most extreme" figure to be included in the extended human family. Certainly, she is the shortest.

She appears to have lived as recently as 18,000 years ago on the island of Flores, a kind of tropical Lost World populated by giant lizards and miniature elephants.

The discovery is the best example of a trove of fragmented bones that account for as many as seven of these primitive individuals. Scientists have named the new species Homo floresiensis, or Flores Man. The
specimens' ages range from 95,000 to 12,000 years old.

The find has astonished anthropologists unlike any in recent memory. Flores Man is a totally new creature that was fundamentally different from modern humans. Yet it lived until the threshold of recorded human
history, probably crossing paths with the ancestors of today's islanders.

"This finding really does rewrite our knowledge of human evolution," said Chris Stringer, who directs human origins studies at the Natural History Museum in London. "And to have them present less than 20,000 years
ago is frankly astonishing."

Flores Man was hardly formidable. His grapefruit-sized brain was about a quarter the size of the brain of our species, Homo sapiens. It is closer in size to the brains of transitional prehuman species in Africa more than
3 million years ago.

Yet evidence suggests Flores Man made stone tools, lit fires and organized group hunts for meat.

1800's Archeological find in Britain  -
Reference: Dr. Robert Neal Boyd

. Hundreds of tiny flint tools were found in the Pennine hills of east Lancashire, all of them no larger than half an inch long. These tiny tools included scrapers, borers, and crescent shaped knives. The craftsmanship of
the tools was extremely fine. In many cases, a magnifying glass was needed to detect evidences of the flaking process which was used to bring these instruments to a sharp point. None of the tiny tools found seemed
practical for performing the tasks that our "normal- sized" ones are intended for.

Corresponding with the global legends, of "little people", tiny tools similar to the ones found in Lancashire have been found worldwide, including Devon and Suffolk, in England, also in Egypt, Africa, Australia, France,
Italy, and India.

If one will read the book "Mad Bear: Spirit, Healing, and the Sacred in the Life of a Native American Medicine Man" by Doug Boyd one will encounter the interesting understanding of the indigenous Holy Man, Mad Bear,
that a miniature race of beings whom Mad Bear calls ``The Little People'' has evolved side by side with humans. Mad Bear presented the anthropologist author, Doug Boyd, a skull the size of a ping-pong ball to
physically prove his thesis


Comparing the 1440 map, the
part of North America,
Caribbean, and north of South
America, with the current map,
the undeniable similarity is
astonishing due to the
cartographic perfection. They
have not succeeded with the
same cartographic perfection
as the guessed right and
recognizable representation of
America, especially in the
north part of Europe in the
Baltic zone in Sweden,
Norway, where Sweden is
represented as an island and
Denmark of an enormous size.
.....The Hudson Bay is recognized perfectly; the most minimum details are shown, with the name of "DAS MER CASPI zwischen dem Aufgang and mitternacht dar in
dy". Translated as "Caspian Sea among the sunrise and midnight". In the time the map is dated, 1440, it was perfectly well-known by the European geographers
that the Caspian Sea was an interior sea and it didn't have an oceanic exit, but surprisingly it isn't the only map of great antiquity where the "Caspian Sea" is
represented with oceanic exit and lands that don't belong to Asia. Perhaps the map of Eratosthenes dated in the III century BC. is the first one that represents it
this way, but not the only one, also the map of Estrabón in the I century AC and the great geographer Pomponio Mela represents his map with this modality in the
I century of our era.

..... What is curious in that map is that the author knew that the sea that today is known as Caspian didn't have an oceanic exit, and clearly represents it at the
east of the Black Sea with the possible old name of "Sea of Persia", that is what makes us think that he knew what he has done and it is not a mistake, but two
different seas.

..... We find equally recognizable the lands of El Labrador and the North American coast to the Caribbean
.... A special attention must be paid in a great reading in El Labrador: "Der Roten luden Lant" 1440 that means "Land of the Red
Jews". This is written in Latin in the maps of 1448 and 1470, The map of 1440 has added the reading "Roten Iuden peslos sen
sind", a possibly "t" is missing in the word "peslos" which would mean "The Red Jews don't have the pest".

..... We should be careful with the reading "Gog und Magog", in the three maps. In rabbinical interpretation it means, "Place and opposed force to the
true religion". This reading is referred to the Red Jewish.
Actually in Canada we find near the Superior Lake the town of
Magog and the River of Magog and the origin of these names will surely be lost in time.
..... Further on I'll make a deeper reference about this town of Magog, enemies of the established religion
which is named by the Prophet Ezequiel in the Bible.

..... A region named "Albama" in the map of 1470, will this be the current "Alabama"? On the coast we observe a place called "Portonach" 1440 that due to the
phonetic deformations that took place in the oral transmissions, and the interpretations in the translation to the German language, it could be interpreted as the
place that the aborigins denominated as "Potomac" since it is also notorious the coincidence of it's location.

On the north coast of the Caribbean next to a mountainous chain 1440, the one that can be identified as the Appalachian
Mounts there is a reading that prays: "Pigmeisen sein klain und fechten mit den krenchen". It is translated as "Pygmies are very
small, belligerent and they fight against the Krenchen". At first I thought that it was a fantasy or mistake made by the
geographers, since it was unthinkable the existence of Pygmies in that region of North America.

..... But no! There were such figures in the maps, in the region of the Appalachian Mounts, 1440 that are represented near the
Atlantic coast. The legend indicates us that they fought against the Creeck-Che, these pygmies were part of the legends of the
well-known tribes as Cherokees, although they say that their name is "Yun'wiya" which means true people

These pygmies have stopped to be a legend and become history. Few years ago they were discovered and their skeletons
were exhumed. In the book "Bronze Age America" Dr. Barry Fell Professor of the University of Harvard, gives dates of these
discoveries with human rests from 1000 and 300 BC.
Cartela that makes reference to the Pygmies in America, the map of Pier Desceliers

.....It is astonishing that 110 years after 1440, in 1550 we find the pygmies again represented in Pierre Desceliers's map of the French Hydrograph School, locating them to the north of The Florida
west of the Appalachian Mountains. It's important to clarify that in this map North Americais already separated from Asia. Demonstrating that Desceliers had the knowledge that America was in the
old maps and knew, what should be separated from Asia and what should be located in America. This cartographer's map is in the Library of London.

.....More to the west a long chain of mountains that runs from south to north denominated "Caspier Perg". Means "Caspian Mounts", which have been mistakenly identified by many as the Urales
Mounts and I say mistakenly because if we look at the map attentively we will see that the Urales had been rotated 90º north together with the Meotica lagoon, Tanais region and all of Siberia
changed it's orientation north, south, to east, west with the name of "Tarterisch Gepirg" that is to say "Mountain range of the Tartars", mountainous chain that divided the occident region from the
Shitias (Tartar-Mongolian).

The Caspian mounts would be the "Rocky or Rockily" chains that can be found east of the sea with the same name (Hudson Bay).
..... The Caucasus Mountains, possibly by mistake, are found at the east of the Sea of Persia, although they are drawn correctly at the north of the Mount Ararat between the Black Sea and the
Sea of Persia.

A Pygmy Homo Race.
3 Million Years Old

The Essington [Oberon] NSW mineralised
[ironstone] partly mummified skull.

This small hominid skull, although lacking a
rear brain case due to crushing through burial
beneath a heavy overlying strata, displays
surviving features of a remarkable 'modern'
appearance, such as a vertical forehead and

There does not seem to have been projecting
eyebrow ridges and there is a long 'modern'
nose. Mummified skin covers most of the face,
and a patch of skin has detached itself from the
left side of the nose to cover the left eye socket,
suggesting the hominid may have already
been dead and decomposing at the time of its
initial preservation.

The left side of the head has been crushed
inwards flattening the cheekbone, although this
is present on the right side of the specimen.
The teeth of the upper jaw have been broken
away and the lower jaw crushed, revealing
adult teeth. Mud and small gravels have filled
the skull's interior. Mineralised mud and
gravels cover the rear of the skull.

The specimen was initially covered by a
deposit of volcanic ash and mud during an
eruption that was responsible for the rapid
preservation of the tissue. As volcanic
disturbances in the Oberon region ceased in
late Pliocene times, this suggests the
specimen to be around 3 million years old.

The skull/mummified head is 14cm in height
by 9cm across the facial section by 8cm thick in
its incomplete state. The hominid's height is
estimated to have been about 84cm.

The 'modern' features of this specimen
suggest a pygmy-size race of Homo that
evolved around late Pliocene times,

The fossil was unearthed by Mrs Joy Colley
about 1995 and donated to the Rex Gilroy
Natural Science collection.

Since then two further specimens, recovered by
Rex Gilroy at sites in Qld suggest all three
skull-types may be related.
