exploring the Mammoth Caves where
Mummies were Found
At this Point Mary was 2 miles back
into one of the tunnel system of
Mamoth and approx. 170 feet
beneath the surface.
These tunnels however extend over
365 miles under the ground.
This mummy is called Scudders Mummy
Carbon Testing dates this one back
approx. 3-4000 years old

Within the Mammoth Caves the temperature maintains a constant temperature of 55
degrees. When the temperature at the surface is hotter than below the surface a mist is
created through the many cave vents . So if you are looking for an entrance to the tunnel
systems, keep your eyes open for the mists.
Keep in mind also, this is the proximity of where the rumored entrance is to the Inner World
Mary checked out the area for Vortexs and DEFINITELY found one using the pendulum she
always wears around her neck.
Little Alice Mummy

Smaller than Fawn Hoof Mummy ,
naturally mummified by the dryness
of the cave atmosphere.
Height approximately 3 1/2 feet

Carbon dating shows her to be
3-4000 years old.

The Petroglyphs in the Desert North of Mt. Shasta

In the Petroglyph Section near Tule Lake just north of the Modoc Lava Beds in California is the
oldest rock art in the state. It has been dated approximately at 10,000 years old.

The painting above does not copy designs exactly as they appear at this site, but rather gives a
loose interpretation. Insofar as the site is close to a large configuration of Lava Tubes it is easy
to read "lava tube" symbols in the Indian rock engravings, specifically those long,
meandering parallel lines that sometimes are drawn connected to triangular prominences, which
most probably represent mountains, perhaps volcanoes.

A lot of insect-like icons appear at the site which I interpret as 'Ant People' In California insects
are highly revered by many tribal groups as "gods," or "spirits."

The rock art at Tule Lake is on a huge stone outcrop about a quarter mile long. The artists
would travel by boat to what was an island in the lake to create their stone records. In modern
times the stone outcrop is in dry desert. Huge numbers of birds nest in the upper reaches of the

In the Modoc Lava Beds are many lava tube caves with accompanying pictographs painted
near the cave entrances. A park ranger told me that the Native Americans would meditate in the
caves and have visions, which were then painted by the cave's entryways.

The Modoc Lava Beds are the site of the last big war between the European settlers and the
California Native Americans. Captain Jack was the last of the chiefs of the Modoc Indians. The
lava tubes provided excellent hiding places for the Indians in the course
of battle.

Near Mt. Shasta are other lava tube caves, such as Pluto Cave. As to whether lava tubes from
Shasta connect to the Modoc area is not known for certain.

The Kentucky Cave Story

Two young men named White, while idly wandering in a large tract of wild, dense forest, in the south-eastern part of our county, discovered what they supposed to be a sink-hole or fox-den, (A)  
and with that idea proceeded to explore it. After a little trouble in making their way through the entrance, the cave (for such it proved to be) became large enough to admit of their walking upright.
They had proceeded thus in this passage probably, 150 yards, when they emerged into a large and picturesque gallery, the beauty and grandeur of which will rival that of the old Mammoth itself.
The room, according to their calculations, is about 150 by 100 feet, and abounds in all the varieties of the stalactite and stalagmite.

But, it's not the things that we naturally expect to find in caves that we wish to mention particularly, but the curios remains that were discovered therein. In the northeast corner of the first gallery,
(for there are five, which we will speak of), about five feet from the ground, they noticed some strange characters or hieroglyphics neatly carved in the wall, which, upon close examination, proved
to be the head-rock of a vault. A few minutes prying served to loosen this   and disclose to view the interior of an enclosure in the solid rock of about five by ten feet, which contained the remains of
three skeletons, which measure eight feet seven and a half inches, eight feet five inches and eight feet four an three quarter inches in length respectively. The heads were lying toward the east,
each body parallel to the other. Beside them lay three huge (what looked to be) swords, but they were so decayed that upon being touched they crumbled to dust.

After examining the remains closely, but finding nothing that would serve to throw any light on the question as to who and from whence they are, they closed the vault, but in doing so, knocked their
torch out, which they had contrived before entering, leaving them in anything but a pleasant predicament. After searching some time for their lost treasure, they concluded to try to escape by
feeling their way out, but in this they made the matter worse. They stated that after leaving the first large room they struck a good sized branch, and continued following it until forced to turn into
another passage the stream disappearing suddenly in a huge perpendicular gulch which led them into another spacious hall, the size of which they believe to be quite as large as the first.

Out of this second opening, and through what they conceived to be three others similar at least in size their way seemed to gradually ascend, until their hearts were made glad by the discovery of
light ahead, and finally emerged from their ugly confinement through a hole about midway, the cliff of Russell's Creek, having been confined in their subterranean discovery over thirty eight hours.
The whole country thereabouts is rife with speculations concerning the interesting discovery, and numbers of citizens will visit it as soon as the Messrs. White finish their work of rendering the
entrance less difficult to pass.

The above is a correct account and may be replied on, as the young men are of unimpeachable veracity. With a party from town, your correspondent will start in the morning to further explore and
should now curiosities present themselves, will give you the account of an eyewitness.

Columbia, Kentucky
January 30, 18 76

Ancient American magazine has been republishing articles similar to the specimen included above for more than eight years. Then, as now, the first question invariably generated by such old
stories is: What became of the alleged bones and artifacts? Countless similar finds were reported during the early populating of North America in private journals and newspaper articles not unlike
that published by the Louisville Courier Journal, 146 years ago. They can't all have been hoaxes, as skeptics claim.

Indeed, it appears that during the early 19th Century partial physical evidence for over-sized human beings were sometimes discovered in a prehistoric context. But complete skeletons have been
lacking. For the first time, however, investigators may actually be able to study first-hand an intact burial of one of these larger than normal individuals. Our cover photograph shows the remains of
such an ancient man who allegedly stood some eight feet tall. His thousand-year-old grave was accidentally uncovered by a private landowner. The burial chamber contained several human and
animal bones, plus manmade objects well preserved by the local desert climate. Other unviolated prehistoric graves in the immediate vicinity have also been located.

Ancient American will shortly be assisting the landowner in choosing a licensed archaeologist to examine these finds and prepare a site-plan for possible (but anticipated) excavation. The cultural
identity of these "giants" is still a mystery, although some researchers detect signs of Mediterranean origins. Their burials are said to contain traces of metallurgy, examples of graphic art, and
evidence for a knowledge of astronomy atypical of native tribal peoples in the American south west.

Even so, could they have originated here, or does their provenance lie in the Eastern Hemisphere? Carbon-datable materials retrieved from the site may be able to establish some time-parameters
for these vanished people, and thereby help us to understand their place in prehistoric migration, not only across our continent, but over the seas, as well.

Is the True History of Man Being Covered Up?

Egyptian Artifacts in the Grand Canyon
The Phoenix Gazette - April 5, 1909

Remarkable Finds Indicate Ancient People Migrated From Orient:

The latest news of the progress of the explorations or what is now regarded by scientists as not only the oldest archaeological discovery in the United States, but one of the most valuable in the world, which was mentioned
some time ago in the Gazette (see photo at left), was brought to the city yesterday by G.E. Kinkaid, the explorer who found the great underground citadel of the Grand Canyon during a trip from Green River, Wyoming, down the
Colorado, in a wooden boat, to Yuma, several months ago.

According to the story related to the Gazette by Mr. Kinkaid, the archaeologists of the Smithsonian Institute, which is financing the expeditions, have made discoveries which almost conclusively prove that the race which
inhabited this mysterious cavern, hewn in solid rock by human hands, was of oriental origin, possibly from Egypt, tracing back to Ramses. If their theories are borne out by the

translation of the tablets engraved with hieroglyphics, the mystery of the prehistoric peoples of North America, their ancient arts, who they were and whence they came will be solved.

Egypt and the Nile, and Arizona and the Colorado will be linked by a historical chain running back to ages, which staggers the wildest fancy of the fictionist. Under the direction of Professor S.A. Jordan, the Smithsonian Institute
is now prosecuting the most thorough explorations, which will be continued until the last link in the chain is forged.

Nearly a mile underground, about 1480 feet below the surface, the long main passage has been delved into, to find another mammoth chamber from which radiates scores of passageways, like the spokes of a wheel. Several
hundred rooms have been discovered, reached by passageways running from the main passage, one of them having been explored are 854 feet and another 634 feet. The recent finds include articles, which have never been
known as native to this country and doubtless they had their origin in the orient.

War weapons, copper instruments, sharp - edged and hard as steel, indicate the high state of civilization reached by these strange people. So interested have the scientists become that preparations are being made to equip
the camp for extensive studies, and the force will be increased to thirty or forty persons.

"Before going further into the cavern, better facilities for lighting will have to be installed, for the darkness is dense and quite impenetrable for the average flashlight. In order to avoid being lost, wires are being strung from the
entrance to all passageways leading directly to large chambers. How far this cavern extends no one can guess, but it is now the belief of many that what has already been explored is merely the "barracks", to use an American
term, for the soldiers, and that far into the underworld will be found the main communal dwellings of the families. The perfect ventilation of the cavern, the steady draught that blows through, indicates that it has another outlet to
the surface."

Mr. Kinkaid was the first white child born in Idaho and has been an explorer and hunter all his life, thirty years having been in the service of the Smithsonian Institute. Even briefly recounted, his history sounds fabulous, almost

"First, I would impress that the cavern is nearly inaccessible. The entrance is 1,486 feet down the sheer canyon wall. It is located on government land and no visitor will be allowed there under penalty of trespass."

The scientist's wish to work unmolested, without fear of the archaeological discoveries being disturbed by curio or relic hunters. A trip there would be fruitless, and the visitor would be sent on his way.

"The story of how I found the cavern has been related, but in a paragraph: I was journeying down the Colorado River in a boat, alone, looking for minerals. Some forty two miles up the river from the El Tovar Crystal canyon, I saw
on the east wall, stains in the sedimentary formation about 2,000 feet above the river bed. There was no trail to this point, but I finally reached it with great difficulty. Above a shelf, which hid it from view from the river, was the
mouth of the cave."

"There are steps leading from this entrance some thirty yards to what was, at the time the cavern was inhabited, the level of the river. When I saw the chisel marks on the wall inside the entrance, I became interested, securing
my gun and went in."

"During that trip, I went back several hundred feet along the main passage till I came to the crypt in which I discovered the mummies. One of these I stood up and photographed by flashlight. I gathered a number of relics, which I
carried down the Colorado to Yuma, from whence I shipped them to Washington with details of the discovery. Following this, the explorations were undertaken."

"The main passageway is about 12 feet wide, narrowing to nine feet toward the farther end. About 57 feet from the entrance, the first side-passages branch off to the right and left, along which, on both sides, are a number of
rooms about the size of ordinary living rooms of today, though some are 30 by 40 feet square. These are entered by oval-shaped doors and are ventilated by round air spaces through the walls into the passages. The walls are
about three feet six inches in thickness. The passages are chiseled or hewn as straight as could be laid out by an engineer. The ceilings of many of the rooms converge to a center."

"The side-passages near the entrance run at a sharp angle from the main hall, but toward the rear, they gradually reach a right angle in direction."


"Over a hundred feet from the entrance is the cross-hall, several hundred feet long in which is found the idol, or image, of the people's god, sitting cross-legged, with lotus flower or lily in each hand. The cast of the face is
oriental, the carving shows a skillful hand, and the entire object is remarkably well preserved, as is everything in this cavern."

"The idol almost resembles Buddha, though the scientists are not certain as to what religious worship it represents. Taking into consideration everything found thus far, it is possible that this worship most resembles the
ancient people of Tibet."

"Surrounding this idol are smaller images, some very beautiful in form; others crooked-necked and distorted shapes, symbolical probably, of good and evil. There are two large cactus with protruding arms, one on each side of
the dais on which the God squats. All this is carved out of hard rock resembling marble. In the opposite corner of this cross-hall were found tools of all descriptions, made of copper."

"These people undoubtedly knew the lost art of hardening this metal, which has been sought by chemists for centuries without result. On a bench running around the workroom was some charcoal and other material probably
used in the process. There is also slag and stuff similar to matte, showing that these ancients smelted ores, but so far, no trace of where or how this was done has been discovered, nor the origin of the ore."

"Among the other finds are vases or urns and cups of copper and gold, made very artistic in design. The pottery work includes enameled ware and glazed vessels. Another passageway leads to granaries such as are found in
the oriental temples. They contain seeds of various kinds. One very large storehouse has not yet been entered, as it is twelve feet high and can be reached only from above. Two copper hooks extend on the edge, which
indicates that some sort of ladder was attached. These grannies are rounded, as the materials of which they are constructed, I think is a very hard cement. A Gray metal is also found in this cavern, which puzzles the scientists,
for its identity has not been established. It resembles platinum."

"Strewn promiscuously over the floor everywhere are what people call 'cats eyes,' a yellow stone of no great value. Each one is engraved with the head of the Malay type."


"On all the urns, or walls over doorways, and tablets of stone which were found by the image are the mysterious hieroglyphics, the key to which the Smithsonian Institute hopes yet to discover. The engraving on the tablets
probably has something to do with the religion of the people. Similar hieroglyphics have been found in southern Arizona. Among the pictorial writings, only two animals are found. One is of prehistoric type."


"The tomb or crypt in which the mummies were found is one of the largest of the chambers, the walls slanting back at an angle of about 35 degrees. On these are tiers of mummies, each one occupying a separate hewn shelf.
At the bead of each is a small bench, on which is found copper cups and pieces of broken swords. Some of the mummies are covered with clay, and all are wrapped in a bark fabric. The urns or cups on the lower tiers are
crude, while as the higher shelves are reached, the urns are finer in design, showing a later stage of civilization."

"It is worthy of note that all the mummies examined so far have proved to be male, no children or females being buried here. This leads to the belief that this exterior section was the warriors' barracks. Among the discoveries,
no bones of animals have been found, no skins, no clothing, no bedding. Many of the rooms are bare but for water vessels. One room, about 40 by 700 feet, was probably the main dining hall, for cooking utensils are found

"What these people lived on is a problem, though it is presumed that they came south in the winter and farmed in the valleys, going back north in the summer. Upwards of 50,000 people could have lived in the caverns
comfortably. One theory is that the present Indian tribes found in Arizona are descendants of the serfs or slaves of the people, which inhabited the cave. Undoubtedly a good many thousand of years before the Christian era a
people lived here which reached a high stage of civilization. The chronology of human history is full of gaps."

Professor Jordan much enthused over the discoveries and believes that the find will prove of incalculable value in archaeological work.

"One thing I have not spoken of, may be of interest. There is one chamber, the passageway to which is not ventilated, and when we approached it a deadly, snaky smell struck us. Our light would not penetrate the gloom, and
until stronger ones are available, we will not know what the chamber contains. Some say snakes, but other boo-hoo'd this idea and think it may contain a deadly gas or chemicals used by the ancients. No sounds are heard, but
it smells snaky just the same."

"The whole underground installation gives one of shaky nerves the creeps. The gloom is like a weight on one's shoulders, and our flashlights and candles only make the darkness blacker. Imagination can revel in conjectures
and ungodly daydreams back through the ages that have elapsed till the mind reels dizzily in space."


In connection with this story, it is notable that among the Hopi Indians the tradition is told that their ancestors once lived in an underworld in the Grand Canyon till dissension arose between the good and the bad, the people of
one heart and people of two hearts.

Machetto, who was their chief, counseled them to leave the under world, but there was no way out. The chief then caused a tree to grow up and pierce the roof of the underworld, and then the people of one heart climbed out.
They tarried by Paisisvai (Red River), which is the Colorado, and grew grain and corn. They sent out a message to the Temple of the Sun, asking the blessing of peace, good will and rain for people of one heart. That
messenger never returned, but today at the Hopi villages at sundown can be seen the old men of the tribe out on the housetops gazing toward the sun, looking for the messenger. When he returns, their lands and ancient
dwelling place will be restored to them. That is the tradition.

Among the engravings of animals in the cave is seen the image of a heart over the spot where it is located. The legend was learned by W.E. Rollins the artist, during a year spent with the Hopi Indians. There are two theories of
the origin of the Egyptians. One is that they came from Asia; another that the racial cradle was in the upper Nile region. Heeren, an Egyptologist, believed in the Indian origin of the Egyptians. The discoveries in the Grand Canyon
may throw further light on human evolution and prehistoric ages.
