Lamar County – A Race Much Larger in Stature Than Ours

Antiquities of Western New York.

Blocks of Mica from unknown mines – Was the Mastodon a domestic animal?

A telegram to the New York Tribune from Olean, NY, November, says: “There are in the vicinity of Randolph and other places in this county remarkable reminders of the mound-builders. Near the mouth of Cattaraugus Creek, there is a system of earthworks that extends to the Conewango Valley. Between Lake Erie and Dayton, in Chautauqua County, are the remains of circular sepulchral mounds which have an elevation of ten feet, 120 feet in accord. According to antiquaries, this mound must have been the burying place of a great warrior. In the towns of Leon and Conewango, some years ago, eight skeletons were found, were in a sitting posture, and were arranged in a circle. Large blocks of mica were found among the skeletons. Prof. Lukens of Randolph, who has given the subject much attention and study, is of the opinion that whatever people have built these mounds must have regarded mica as a sacred substance, for all the burial mounds that have been found in Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties, large blocks of it have been discovered. Since there are no deposits of that mineral in the region where the relics are unearthed, it has always been a mystery to scientists. One of the ancient mounds was opened in the village of Randolph. Three well-preserved human beings, who must have been a race smaller in stature than ours, were found, each with a block of mica, three inches thick and almost transparent, at their feet. On this mound, a tree three feet in diameter was growing. The roots of the tree pushed their way down into the ancient sepulcher and were entwined about the skeletons.

The skeletons in the Antiquities of Western New York provides further evidence of the existence of giants in ancient times. Their physical characteristics still differ from those of modern humans. For example, the thickness of the mica blocks found near the skeletons suggests that these people were not ordinary humans.

The size of their skulls and teeth also provides evidence of their non-human nature. Some skulls discovered in ancient times are known to be twice as thick as the skulls of modern humans. This indicates that these people had larger and more robust skulls than modern humans. Similarly, the size of their teeth was also much larger than that of modern humans. The teeth of these ancient giants were so large that scientists have been forced to reconsider the evolutionary history of humans.

However, it is unfortunate that the scientific community in the 1800s was unable to accept these findings, and as a result, mishandled the evidence. Such behavior highlights the importance of not cherry-picking evidence to support pre-existing beliefs. Instead, all evidence should be considered to provide a comprehensive understanding of the world around us. The discovery of these ancient giants shows that we still have much to learn about our past and the different types of beings that have inhabited our planet.
