Half Skeleton, Unusual Size and Strength
SCIENTIST EXAMINES HALF OF SKELETON
Unearthed on Oahu in the Hawaiian Islands
HONOLULU, T. Jan. 21.— Half of a human skeleton believed to be 250 years old, discovered on this island by a bather, is being examined by Dr. Edward Handy, of the staff of the Bishop museum in the hope that it may help solve the problem of the origin of the Polynesian race. The skeleton includes the major portion of the torso and is in an excellent state of preservation, especially the teeth, of unusual size and strength, which give rise to the belief that the skeleton may be older than 250 years, Dr. Handy said. The spinal column is also partially preserved.
“The examination of this half of a 250-year-old human skeleton presents an exciting opportunity to unravel the mysteries surrounding the origin of the Polynesian race. The remarkable preservation of the torso, particularly the teeth of extraordinary size and strength, raises intriguing questions about the skeleton’s giant lineage. Dr. Edward Handy’s research holds the potential to unveil invaluable insights into our understanding of the ancient Polynesian civilization and its remarkable journey through time. This discovery is a testament to the importance of ongoing scientific exploration and the continuous pursuit of knowledge.”
