SKELETONS OF GIANTS. Bones and Curios of Pre-Historic Race May Be Exhibited at Jamestown Exposition. Special to the Ocala Banner.
Norfolk, Va., Nov. 20. – What archaeologists declare will solve the mystery surrounding the ancient mound builders was discovered recently in one of a series of hills along the Illinois river, in that state. The “find” shows traces of handicraft of past ages, and the bones of those who wrought it. Several skeletons were exhumed more than eight feet long. Also, pieces of quaint pottery. Under the bones of the ancient dead, were found vases. The largest of which is capable of holding more than two gallons, while under a skull was unearthed a bowl in the center of which is a well-fashioned figure of a king seated upon a crude throne. It is believed by scientists that these bones may be those of a great leader.
