Brown County – HUGE WARRIOR


While digging on the beach at Red Banks, Brown county, a few days ago five Indian skeletons were unearthed by James Gibson, Louis Bender and Jules Geniesse. The bones were in a fair state of preservation and were found about three feet underground. The skull of one was evidently that of a huge warrior, who was probably killed by a spear thrust, for part of a flint spearhead was found imbedded in the skull.

The discovery of a skeleton belonging to a huge warrior with a spearhead embedded in the skull is an intriguing find. It raises questions about the possibility of a battle between different groups of people in ancient times. This discovery highlights the need for further exploration and excavation of ancient sites to uncover more evidence and expand our understanding of the past.
