Ancient Giant Skulls With Horns Discovered At Sayre In The 1880s
A large number of human skulls were discovered during an excavation in Sayre, Bradfort County, Pennsylvania in 1880. The discovered skulls were interesting in a certain manner concerned with anatomy. Interestingly, the skulls consisted of horns right above two inches from the eyebrows. The most fascinating part is that the average height of the beings to whom the ancient giant skulls with horns belonged would have been around seven feet.
An excavation was conducted in the 1880s by a group of scientists in the Northeastern part of the state near the New York state line.
The team consisted of a historian who belonged to Pennsylvania state, two professors, and a member of the Presbyterian church’s hierarchy they had worked their way to a town called Sayre, and they became interested in a ground that appeared to be burial mounds.
The group was headed by Dr. P.G. Donehoo of the church along with the professors A.B. Skinner and W.K. Moorehead of the American Investigation Museum and Phillips Academy in Andover and they proceeded to the first of the mounds to begin a detailed excavation and what they found next baffled the scientists for almost more than a decade.
Ancient Giant Skulls With Horns Discovered In Sayre
The researchers stumbled across several skeletons of males by scraping away heavy rocks and dirt at the Murray Farm site while conducting research at Tioga Point in the Susquehanna Valley. In the mound, they uncovered the remains of sixty-eight men, believed to have been buried around the year 1200 AD.
The discovery was carefully analyzed by the team and while looking more closely, the team came up with an opinion that the ancient giant skulls with horns must belong to males who were over seven feet tall.
However, the fascinating height comes second, the most baffling factor is that the skulls of the mysterious men had horns- two actual horns. It is believed that this ancient giant skull with horns belonged to giant men who died nearly 800 years ago.
The scientists wrapped the remains of the skeletons and sent them for an examination to the American Investigation Museum in Philadelphia. As the skulls reached the examination facility, it baffled the scientists as well. Later on, the skulls were claimed to have been lost or misplaced. Also, there were no official statements by Donehoo, Skinner, or Moorehead describing the discovery of any human skeletons at Sayre exhibiting gigantism or horned protrusions.
What do you think? Is it just a hoax or were the horned skulls lost on purpose?
