Mound in Louisiana Gives Up Bones of Indians More Than Seven Feet Tall
NATCHEZ, Miss., June 21.-(AP) Skeletons of Indians estimatated to have been more than seven feet tall have been unearthed by explorers at Catahoula parish, Louisiana.
A search for locations for study by members of the Smithsonian institution disclosed from 15 to 20 of the skeletons in a grave on a mound at Larte Lake.
The discovery was made by Dr. E. A. Beithaupt and E. W. Knight and was regarded as contributing to the theory that the prehistoric mound builder once lived here.
