The History of His-Story
OSU is headquarters for the academic world regarding the Moundbuilder culture. The campus consists of all Olde World structures with a fake timeline slapped on. This isn’t the spot for that conversation but I just wanted to highlight the main building.
The history of the mounds and their construction is a string of people all connected to each other and ultimately the World Fair, which is where all the fake cultures of the world are put on display and inserted into the mainstream collective. We’re going to cover a small fraction of the agents involved and examine a small selection of artifacts and media reports.
My position is the physical evidence is fake, found by generational Spook agents, verified by illegitimate authority, and pushed by the psychological warfare machine media. There was no moundbuilders.
For starters lets take a look at the wordage, “Pre-Columbian”, Columbus was a fictional character so anythng with his moniker attached is fictional as well. The infrastructure was already in place and only needed to be repaired, the repairs are what is labeled ‘construction’ in the photographic record.
Many of the area’s became buried during the Reset, a period which a centralized international authority grid was established, the most common term for this is Mudflood. The technology required to accomplish this was suppressed as part of the Full Spectrum Dominance control grid, leaving the slave-class dependent of ‘fossil’ fuel.
Later these fully developed and buried cities would need to be excavated, the ‘Big Dig’, all that dirt had to go somewhere. Look at this picture of Kansas City, here we have a buried city being excavated. I put forth the mounds were created from the earth that had to be removed during the excavations with the intent being to create the appearance of a previous culture in order to support the Colonial narrative… The Mayflower Pilgrims, Independence Revolution, Lewis and Clark, Westward Expansion, Gold Rush, Civil War… All bullshit.
Another line of thinking could be the mounds were part of the original substrate and the dirt around them was removed, leaving the appearance of pre arranged temple complexes that align with the solstices and May 1st, I have seen more references to May Day here than anywhere else.
The formula is used the same way to create ancient cultures everywhere. They share characteristics because the script is only changed slightly, the similarites are used to a timeline of how cultures interact with each other and sometimes presented as an enigma or anomaly in which the mystery is the apppeal. The creation of the road-side tourist trap industry is what nails the lid on the coffin, Humans live on a consumer driven global* economy so the tourist trap is the Orphan Class paying for their own enslavement.
Davis and Squier
Lets start with some of the central characters in the plot to create a false ancient culture:
Most of the bio’s are scavenged from the Ministry of Truth with my own commentary being provided in blue.
Edwin Hamilton Davis was born in 1811 in Hillsboro, Ohio, just a few miles from Chillicothe, a central location of importance. At the time, archaeology had not yet developed as an academic discipline. Davis explored the mounds while a student at Kenyon College and wrote a paper on the subject which he read at his commencement. Daniel Webster, an early member of the American Antiquarian Society, heard the paper and encouraged Davis to continue his research.
After graduating from medical college and establishing a practice in Chillicothe, Davis used his free time to continue his explorations. He collected artifacts he discovered in and around the mounds. He graduated at Cincinnati Medical College in 1838. He practiced in Chillicothe, Ohio until 1850, when he was called to the chair of materia medica and therapeutics in the New York Medical College. Dr. Davis was one of the editors of the American Medical Monthly.
Any kind of content creator or involvement with a normie publication is a red flag. The media was installed as the Hall of Records, it was never free and independent, that means only their own class is associated with them. Why would someone with a formal education in medicine give a graduation speech about an unrecognized branch of science.
Davis also worked with the Sec of the Smithsonian to create a map of Indian tribes he encountered based on skeletal structure. That eugenics, boys and girls.
He aided Charles Whittlesey in explorations of ancient mounds in 1836. Then from 1845 until 1847 Davis surveyed nearly one hundred groups of aboriginal earthworks, and opened two hundred mounds at his own expense.
During the spring of 1854, Davis delivered a course of lectures on archaeology before the Lowell Institute in Boston. In 1858 he was elected a member of the American Antiquarian Society. His lectures were on tour in Brooklyn, as well.
Among Davis and Squier’s most important achievements was their systematic approach to analyzing and documenting the sites they surveyed, including the Serpent Mound, which they discovered in 1846, and the mapping of the Mound City Group in Chillicothe, Ohio, which has been restored using their data and became part of Hopewell Culture National Historical Park. A National park wasn’t ‘restored’ based on their notes, more like the park was designed from a set of blueprints.
This is the other half. there were a few red flags when the gate dropped it didn’t take long to figure out this guy is a fictional Spook. Its a guilt by association game and a Classist system, they keep each to their own. The first guy slipped past but take one out and the rest fall along with it.
Start with the name. Ephraim Squier- E, Squier- Esquire, Esquire is a title of nobility, under a knight. These people are nothing without their titles. Its a Class war, remember?
Born in 1821 in Bethlehem, New York. By the time he arrived in Chillicothe in 1845 as the editor of the weekly Scioto Gazette newspaper, he had received training in civil engineering, education, and journalism. He was associated in the publication of the New York State Mechanic at 1841–1842. In 1843–1848, he engaged in journalism in Hartford, Connecticut, graduating from Princeton. He wrote a book on the Chinese, organized political parties
As part of the railroad gig he traveled down to South and Central America as both RR officer and got to study the native people, which he published more books and won medals. Became editor of Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Journal. This was a precursor to Harpers Weekly, sketch news before the use of photography. Totally propaganda. The timeline here is a glitch in the matrix, I did a report on the Inca ruins of Peru, they aren’t discovered for another 50 yrs. I do comment in the report that the railroad and map surveying expeditions were already established and fully operational when the first ‘White” guy comes through
An officer of the Honduras Interoceanic Railway Company. Thats a big one. The RR is an Olde World artifact. They are the central authority, more like an autonomus entity than a bisness.
He was married to a lady who subsequently became the wife and widow of Frank Leslie.
Squier was intrigued by the numerous prehistoric monuments in the surrounding area. His questioning of local residents about them failed to provide much insight. With his characteristic ambition, Squier decided to “take the compass and chain in one hand and the mattock and spade in the other” and begin his own research.
He developed a relationship with Wyman, curator of the Peabody Museum at Harvard that was a specialist in shell mounds
When the two men encountered one another, they began to collaborate based on Davis’s knowledge of the Scioto Valley sites and growing collection of artifacts, combined with Squier’s knowledge of surveying and writing. The results of this collaboration were published as the first work issued by the newly founded Smithsonian Institution: Ancient Monuments of the Mississippi Valley.
Squier and Davis’s collection of ancient Mound objects is now kept at the British Museum. There are also collections at the American Museum of Natural History, in New York. This is where he was teaching for ten years at the medical college. Combined with his role around Lowell and Boston I think its more accurate he wasnt from Ohio at all and thats just his backstory to make it seem like a natural childhood hobby to explore the land features he grew up around.
Here is a DLC written by Squier at the request of Al Gallatin, published in 1849. It is only 18 pages of brief description of mounds and content. No mention of giant skeletons are mentioned in original materials even though there are detailed illustrations. The reports of giants seems like it was a later detail added by the media to sell headlines. No giants, more on them later.
(October 4, 1808 – October 18, 1886) was a soldier, geologist, historian, and an investigator of mounds relics of the United States. He is described by Ephraim George Squier and Edwin Hamilton Davis as a “zealous investigator” in the field of “American antiquarian research. His association with other non-existant figures means he is a fictional Spook too, they keep to their own kind. Whittlesey graduated from the United States Military Academy in 1831.
His military record says he was stationed at Ft Howard in Wisconsin and fought in the Black Hawk War. I checked up on Ft H. figuring it was an old starfort but, like the forts out west, the title ‘Fort’ is just a designation given to a group of large buildings that shouldn’t really exist bc ppl haven’t moved into the region yet. The history of the fort reads like it was scripted to confuse ppl reading up on it, the fort was built on the remains of a previous fort built by fur trappers and changed names a few time. periods of reconstruction and demolition meant none of the original structure remained standing and the visual evidence is a photograph of a painting from the Civil War era. The name carried a legacy as Ft H. paper manufacturers (paper is an infrastructural mustneed; Military Industrial Complex) which would later merge with the James River Corporation out of Richmond to become the Ft James Co. They are talking about the Jamestown Settlement, john Smith and Pocahontas and all that, see how all the fake history chapters prop each other up? Eventually the Spook Industrial Complex paper producers would end up as Georgia Pacific. There was also a Georgia Pacific Railroad company in 1881, the history of mergers and acquisitions of the RR mirrors that of the grid of early forts (bc they both are Olde World artifacts).
Whittlesey was sent as to the Battle of Shiloh as a commanding officer. The Civil War is just as much a fake history as the Moundbuilders. Accordingly, the Shiloh National Military Park is home to a set of Mississippian Mounds. The virtue-signaling Park Service proclaims it was the military background that saved the mounds from being razed. (Those Indians are so unappreciative)
Shiloh also connects us to John Wesley Powell, that led an expedition that ended with the discovery of the Chaco Canyon Cliff Dwellings, see the full report for details, although these scriptwriters regurgitate the same garbage you will find the template here
In 1837 Whittlesey was appointed assistant geologist of the State of Ohio, under William W. Mather, and given charge of the topographical and mathematical parts of that survey, which disclosed the rich coal and iron deposits of eastern Ohio that are the foundation of its manufacturing industries. At this time, he also carefully examined and measured several of the works of the Mound Builders,
From 1847 until 1851 he was engaged by the U.S. Government in making a mineralogical and geological survey of the region about Lake Superior and the upper Mississippi River. Subsequently, he was professionally engaged as a mining engineer, and in 1858 became associated in the geological work of the survey of Wisconsin. In February 1861, he was enrolled in a company that tendered its services to escort the President-elect Abraham Lincoln to Washington, D.C.
August 15, 1861, and detailed as chief engineer of the Department of the Ohio, with charge of planning and constructing the defenses of Cincinnati. Again, all these connections are proof he never existed as a flesh and blood person; Cincinnati is an Olde World relic, any structures were already there, he didnt plan or construct shit. The Railroad was already there, Abe Lincoln is fake as fuck and any Indian tribe bearing his name never existed either.
After he retired from the War he went back to Wisconsin and wrote the first book about the copper mining region around the Great Lakes. Its seems his whole fake bio has been about that, aside from plugging other fictional characters the geography and mineral surveying and everything else was relevent to this end-game.
In 1867, he was active in the founding of the Western Reserve and Northern Ohio Historical Society, of which he was president until his death in 1886. He was elected a member of the American Antiquarian Society in 1870.
Due to his work describing early North American indigenous people, an archaeological designation, the Whittlesey culture, describing people who lived in Northeast Ohio from A.D. 1000 to 1600, was named in his honor.
Montroville Wilson Dickeson
Another early fiction World Fair character from a preimere Spook family was M. Dickeson, a physican from Philly conducted extensive excavations of archaeological sites in Louisiana and Mississippi in the 1840s.
Dickeson was invented by University of Pennslyvannia as a source for their extensive collection of fake artifacts. UPenn has a controlling interest in the narrative as a prestigious gatekeeper institution. The original Free Museum of Science and Art is now the UPennn museum, their equivelent to Peabody, American Museum of Natural History, the Smithsonian, Chicago Art Museum, Metropolitian Museum of Art (MET), Ever notice all the hoaxer museums are centered around art? bc thats what history is, a big fake modern art project. Today. artifacts from these collections remain important components of the American Section’s holdings.
One of the most interesting documents found among his papers is a cross-section of an unidentified mound in Louisiana or Mississippi, with the various layers of soil carefully delineated and described, along with accompanying artifacts. You will see in the images of the Sr Louis Big Mound the distinct layers, this is from piling it up as the city was being excavated or from multiple mudflood scenarios. This is the first time I have seen an official source mention soil layering.
Although his notes are not detailed enough to let us know whether he excavated stratigraphically or simply recognized the importance of strata, his excavations nonetheless predate by some fifty years those of the recognized progenitors of American stratigraphic excavations—W.H. Dail, Max Uhle, and Alfred Kidder.
They also use him for the standard protocol, his notes compare the earthmounds to other ancient buried cultures like Pompeii was supposedly discovered in 1799, right near recent memory so people will be most likely to accept something thats within a generation or two.
Modern storytellers whitewash the parts that have been rejected by todays establishments:
One of Dickeson’s excavations clearly dealt with an occupation predating the mound builders. Excavating near Natchez, Dickeson uncovered a fossilized human pelvis in a stratum of clay underlying the bones of several extinct animals. The find, which was subsequently known as the Natchez Pelvis, seemed to indicate the great antiquity of human occupation in the New World. (thats a pun, great antiquity sure, but advanced is the part they leave out.) Scientists from as far afield as Great Britain visited the site where it was found. Sir Charles Lyell, the father of modern geology, was not convinced by what he saw (Lyell 1873:108). However, later scholars who reexamined the bones concluded that the pelvis and the associated fossils were “substantially oft he same antiquity” (Wilson 1895:725).
In 1926 and 1927, excavations at Clovis, New Mexico, carried out under Jesse Figgens, director of the Colorado Museum of Natural History, recovered fluted spear points in association with extinct bison bones. These finds posthumously vindicated Dickeson belief in the contemporaneity of prehistoric people and the long-extinct animals of the Pleistocene.
His collection was displayed at the City Museum in Philadelphia, where he was designated the “Professor of Natu rail Sciences.” Later the artifacts were displayed at the Swain Building, also in Philadelphia, and eventually at the Centennial Exposition in the same city (Fig. 10). They would remain on display in the Exposition’s Memorial Hall from 1876 to 1885.
Warren King Moorehead
was known in his time as the ‘Dean of American archaeology’; born in Siena, Italy to missionary parents on March 10, 1866.
Moorehead is credited with excavating more ancient earthworks than all archaeologists before and after him. Due to Moorehead’s primary focus on artifact recovery in his early career, his often careless documentation of excavated sites, and the fact that he lost many of his own important field notes (including those from 1891 at the Hopewell Site), Moorehead is often remembered as a destructive force among modern archaeologists. That said, Moorehead was influential in the preservation of some historical sites such as Fort Ancient.
Moorehead’s grandfather, was Joseph Warren King, whose wealth from the King’s Powder Mills fortune rooted in the American Civil War. Powder as in gun powder, not baby powder, that means he is from a Military Industrial Complex family. “Kings Island,” the Cincinnati area amusement park is at the site today. Bread and Circus is a warfare operation. He is most likely related to the War Dept Indian Painter, Charles King Bird.
Moorehead attended Denison University. By 1887 Moorehead left without graduating, and added to the speedy dismissal of Moorehead’s work after his death by most professional archaeology.
Excavations and collections begun as a schoolboy continued through self-financed work taking him to a display of his own at the 1888 Cincinnati Centennial Exposition, and contact with Dr. Thomas Wilson of the Smithsonian Institution.
Wilson and the Cincinnati Centennial connect him to the University of Pennsylvania for study under the famous Dr. Edward Drinker Cope. Cope is one of the main characters I have been wanting to research central to whats called the “Bone Wars”, a side thread about dinosaurs and dinosaur fossils that make up museum collections.
He was a member of the board of commissioners for the Bureau of Indian Affairs with the Department of Interior in 1909, His Ministry of Truth bio goes so far to say he was at the site of the Wounded Knee Massacre pleading for the Indians. His work on behalf of Indian Land Claims, exposing fraudulent Indian agents, and seeking better health care on reservations, his leadership of the White Earth Indian Reservation hearings on injustices following the Dawes Act and Moorehead’s book “The American Indian in the United States, Period 1850-1914” indicate very strongly to me he is the same family as Charles King Bird, the Indian Painter for the War Dept.
Moorehead returned to Ohio and found a position developing the state display for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition (Chicago World’s Fair), which led him to work with Frederic Ward Putnam. This work also went into the World’s Fair display, became a published volume for Moorehead, and caught the attention of the organizers of the Ohio Historical & Archaeological Society (now the Ohio Historical Society) which was just begun in 1885.
Moorehead’s destruction and lack of documentation regarding the Hopewell Type Site (and many of his other sites) has left many archaeological questions unable to be answered. (Thats the reason why he did it, its an “Oospie Daisy” excuse to dismiss the lack of evidence and destroyed sites) Yeah. That’s it, his record keeping is so bad the historical Society decides to offer him a job.
Moorehead accepted the position as what would be the first curator of archaeology museum. He was also made a professor of archaeology at OSU. Sites already to manage: (Fort Ancient, and Serpent Mound), The Ohio State Prez encouraged Moorehead to pay for his travel and speaking and research by selling duplicate artifacts.
Moorehead created an atlas of Ohio mounds and earthworks, and even forays into the American southwest, becoming one of the first surveyors of Chaco Canyon and Mesa Verde. This would have put him in contact with Putnam from the Wheeler Expedition. Thats a direct connection between the two fake archeological sites; the cliff houses and the mounds. This connects him a second time over by Clarence King and his Expedition of the 40th parallel.
His assistant, William Corless Mills, completed what is now known as the Mills Atlas of 1904.
I believe the real reason he returned to the Peabody’s was bc they owned the museum he worked for. Probs he never left, they just inserted it into the wiki page. A collector of baskets huh, that the core of the artifacts recovered from the sites they were just supposedly at. They are made in bulk at the Essex Art Institute, guarantee it
He and Evelyn had a second son, Singleton Peabody Moorehead, who would become a key architect with the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Another museum and program was established at Phillips Andover Academy. In the 1920s Moorehead excavated the Von Mach Site on the property of Edmund Von Mach in Brooksville, Maine. Von Mach was the Fine Arts instructor at Harvard and the History of Fine Art at Wellesley College… LOL, they are making it too easy. Brooksville is on the river in Maine and a shell mound was on the property, like the ones in Florida and Switzerland, he described one of the ceramic finds at this site among the most finely decorated he had found. The site was added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 17, 1989.
Moorehead began excavation at the Etowah mounds site in Georgia during the winter of 1925.
Moorehead is often considered a “pillager” within the field of archaeology, guilty of a big fraud for financial gain in relation to the famous horned skulls of Sayre,
Moorehead would encounter mounds already being taken down by county road crews and construction laborers, and would negotiate to allow an interval of investigation in the middle of the demolition before the project was completed. Roads through mounds is another thing, either the road can be used to upturn planted artifacts or can be used to knock stuff out so it cant be excavated in the future.
Margaret Ashley Towle
Pioneering female archaeologists of the southeastern United States. She worked with Warren Moorehead at the Etowah site, and went on to assist with his projects in Maine. Ashley married Moorehead’s main field assistant Gerald Towle in 1930. Ashley completed her Ph.D. at Columbia with her dissertation later appearing as The Ethnobotany of Pre-Columbian Peru, (Omni-present Hidden Hand)
St Louis, Missouri, is said to be the Capital City of the Mound Builders, it’s casually known as Moundsville. The photographic evidence indicates it wasnt so much of a pyramid complex as a complete layer of dirt that covered everything and had to be dug out.
The narrative is so busy pushing the Euro-Colonialism guilt campaign nobody has ever even looked at these and said the obvious, these are solid earth formations, not pyramid temples. Nothing is hollowed out with burial chambers.
The last mound in St Louis was removed to be the Art Museum. The O.G. art spooks know there were no Indians, thats just what they do.
Thomas Easterly Daguerreotype Collection. The image source should always be taken into consideration, these are from Easterly, which is a mocking pun about Easter, and Emil Boehl, who is admitted to be confused with Easterly, sort of like Matthew Brady and Alex Gardner and Tim Sullivan. The photographers make all the difference.
One of the city’s best-known earthen structures, “Big Mound” was razed in the mid-1800s following a sale of the land to the North Missouri Railroad. In preparation for the 1904 World’s Fair, an additional sixteen mounds were destroyed. The mounds in Forest Park were mapped and excavated and had human remains associated with them. A group of mounds was near the St. Louis Art Museum and some were near the golf course. Today, about 80 mounds are preserved in the nearby Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site directly across the Mississippi River. Sugarloaf Mound is the only one that remains, of the original approximately 40 mounds in St. Louis.
This is Kansas City, not just a single block, the whole city is like this around the mid to late 1800’s. I theorize the mud was cleared out of the city and piled up nearby and given a fake history and had some fake artifacts with the same symbols planted for supporting evidence. The Smithsonian is always remembered for destroying the evidence but what they were really doing was destroying the lack of evidence or fake artifacts.
Big Mound at St Louis
As to the secrets held in this, the largest of the ceremonial mounds in St. Louis, Reverend Stephen Denison, who was present as the mound was destroyed, wrote this:
Also found in the mound were “two copper earrings still in the skull of one of the skeletons. They were about 3 inches tall and 1.5 inches wide, in the form of a “long-nosed god mask,” the nose of the face protruding 6 inches.”
These earrings disappeared from a janitorial closet at Washington University. Many other artifacts were also lost when they were donated to the Academy of Science of St. Louis in 1869. That same year the building in which they were stored burned to the ground.
In the years that followed, the mounds that remained were gradually and purposefully destroyed and their contents looted and sold for the most part. In 1904 alone 16 mounds were destroyed in preparation for the World’s Fair.
Lets backtrack to the good reverend. Denison is another premiere family of Spooks. He traces his lineage back to the Mayflower and the founders of Yale. There were no Pilgrims, stupid. Denison graduated from Andover, which was a school that trained agents in disguise of religion. Peet was the author of a series of volumes upon the mound builders, Indian relics, cliff dwellers and kindred topics, and of many pamphlets and articles. So it wasnt like he just happened to be standing there and witnessed something. He probs was never there at all bc he helped write the narrative, if anyone knew there was nothing there it wouldv’e been him.
Who Were the Hopewell Indians?
Frederic Ward Putnam, who was appointed curator of Harvard University’s Peabody Museum of American Archaeology and Ethnology in 1875, commissioned and funded excavations that would become some of the earliest collections developed two of the nation’s most notable anthropological departments: at Harvard University and the University of California, Berkeley. He also developed four of the nation’s most prestigious museums: the Peabody Museum at Harvard, the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, Chicago’s Field Museum of Natural History and Berkeley with the collections he gathered for display at the World Fair
Frederic Ward Putnam was born on April 16, 1839, in Salem, Massachusetts, into a New England family whose ancestors could be tracked down to the first settlers of America. Salem is famous for one thing and everyone tied to the town is a spook bc the Salem Witch Trials were part of Colonial America and thus, are historical fiction. Thomas Putnam (b. March 22 , d. June 3 ) was a main character in the fantasy trial, Its important bc it adds birth-right to todays family line, its a class war and generational weath and land grab are illegitimate so even the villains are inserted by powerlines.
He married Adelaide Martha Edmands, with whom he had three children: Eben Putnam, Alice Edmands Putnam, and Ethel Appleton Fiske Lewis.
Alice Edmands Putnam worked alongside her father and was director of the Peabdy in year 1886, she took as his proxy as Putnam’s health failed
Putnam started Harvard at age 17 but didnt graduate, he took up an offer to curate the Essex Institute, the museum in Salem.
In 1873, Putnam was elected to the post of permanent secretary of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He helped establish the journals American Naturalist, Science, American Anthropologist, and founded organizations, such as Anthropology of the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences, the Archaeological Institute of America, and the American Anthropological Association. All these groups are fractal patterns of each other, designed to create confusion and compartmentalize the enemy.
Putnam assisted with the Kentucky Geological Survey in 1874
From 1876-79, he served as Chief of Anthropology, studying prehistoric ruins and pueblo villages of the Southwest, as part of the Wheeler Survey. The Wheeler survey was part of the fake Westward Expansion, I have a detailed report in the site archives.
The 1885 Peabody Museum acquisition of Ohio’s Serpent Mound, thanks to Putnam’s appeal to the museum’s trustees and members of the Archaeological Institute of America
For the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Putnam commissioned the self-taught archaeologist Warren K. Moorehead to lead excavations in southern Ohio to take human remains and “relics” for display. Much of what Moorehead unearthed from Ohio’s Ross and Warren counties became founding collections of the Field Museum.
influential in dispatching the productive Jesup North Pacific Expedition to northeastern Asia and northwestern North America.
A few years after Moorehead’s excavations, the American Museum of Natural History co-sponsored rival expeditions to the Southwest; items were looted from New Mexico’s Chaco Canyon and shipped by train to New York.
Putnam is now credited with formalizing what would become the ‘Chicago Method”.

- The site is named in honor of chiropractor Don Dickson, who began excavating it in 1927 and opened a private museum that formerly operated on the site. Its exhibition of the 237 uncovered skeletons uncovered and displayed by Dickson was closed in 1992.
- So when Dickson prepared his property to plant an orchard in the 1860s, he inadvertently unearthed human remains. His grandson, Thomas, later unearthed more human remains and objects while building his house nearby.
- Don Dickson was a chiropractor and discovered the burial mounds on his family farm. Instead of removing the bones, he only removed the dirt. He covered his excavation with a tent. He later replaced his tent with a building and set up a private museum.
- We just read about a Dickeson clan member that was involved with early PreColumbian American fake-history, I told you they were all in on the fix. This branch just dropped the ‘e’ but they ain’t foolin’ me.
In 1809 the Philadelphia Port Folio published the first map and description of Fort Ancient. The accounts of the site by Atwater and Warden several years later are nearly identical to the 1809 report and map. The site was visited and surveyed in by John Locke in 1843. In Edwin Hamilton Davis and Ephraim George Squier‘s Ancient Monuments of the Mississippi Valley, they described Fort Ancient as “one of the most extensive, if not the most extensive, work…in the entire West”, regarding its size. Warren K. Moorehead conducted some of the initial excavations at Fort Ancient in 1887 and published his research in 1891 in the book Fort Ancient: Great Prehistoric Warren County Ohio. Additional research was conducted by William C. Mills in 1908 and Richard Morgan and Holmes Ellis in 1939-1940.
Grave Creek Mound
G.C. Mound was excavated in 1843, among the usual pottery and shell beads they found a palm-sized flat stone with runic lettering. We’ll get to that but I wanted to note that 150 sheets of mica were also found in the chamber. This is noteworthy bc mica is found in the Mayan temple complexes, this is the only instance I have seen it found in North America. Mica is used for electrical applications and proposed by the ancient astro-not crowd as evidence they temples were power generators.
It has recurring themes in hoaxes, multiple renderings; drawings of drawings of drawings, and the modern academics that bust the hoaxers out with some obscure book of also-fake lettering… like the Kensington rune stone found under the tree but the farmer had futhark encyclopedias on his shelf.
The stone passed through various collections, but its current location is unknown. While it was in E.H. Davis’s collection in the late 1800s, he made a cast of it which he deposited to the Smithsonian‘s National Museum of Natural History. The Smithsonian now has four casts of the stone. The National Anthropological Association also has a wax impression of the stone made by Davis. Six facsimile drawings were also made of the stone
In 1868 Davis made a plaster cast of the stone and deposited it in the Smithsonian Institution. It is not known where the stone itself is today. In 1868 it was in the collection of E.H. Davis, of Squier and Davis fame, before most of Davis’s collection was sold to the Blackmore Museum, now part of the British Museum.
It should be noted that a “Copy of Grave Creek Stone — No. 1. by Captain Eastman, United States Army,” what he shows is not actually Eastman’s copy of the stone, but rather a redrawing of Eastman’s copy. In a second, 1879 article with the somewhat misleading explanation, “I insert again the only correct copy made by Captain Eastman, United States Army, from the original in 1850, for Schoolcraft’s Indian Tribes.”
At a meeting of the West Virginia Archaeological Society in October 2008, the anthropologist David Oestreicher suggested that the inscription had been forged by James W. Clemens, a local physician who had financed the excavation through loans. Oestreicher found the source of the inscription; an 18th-century volume, “An Essay on the Alphabets of the Unknown Letters That are Found in the Most Ancient Coins and Monuments of Spain” “Everything on the stone”, including “impossible sequences of characters with the same mistakes”, was copied directly from the volume.
This area is colloquially known as Little Egypt. The Kincaid site was the subject of major excavations by the University of Chicago from 1934–1941, during which a number of anthropologists and archaeologists who later had notable careers were trained under the direction of Fay-Cooper Cole; they included Richard MacNeish, discoverer of the origins of maize
In 1966, a Spanish trade bead, which matches descriptions of the seven-layer glass beads carried by the expedition, was found at the Parkin site, as well as a brass bell known as a “Clarksdale bell“. The bell was associated with a child’s burial, which also contained four pottery items, all known types of Parkin phase pottery. This is one of only a handful of sites in the Southeast where items from the de Soto expedition have been found in a datable archaeological context. In 1977, a large charred posthole was found at the summit of the large substructure mound at the Parkin site. In 2016, a portion of a cypress log, believed to be part of the cross that De Soto erected on the site in 1541, was unearthed. It was still under study in April 2016.
“Discovered” by Davis and Squier in 1848, it is the largest effigy mound in the world and published in the very first issue of the Smithsonian report.
Dept of Interior designated it a historic spot in 1966. Thats early for any of these, and the DoI isnt the usual entity to make such a designation.
The spiral is a hypnosis/mind control sigil and the layout of the curves are aligned with solar events, that means its a Sun worshipping idol.
Supposedly there are serpent effigies in Canada and Scotland too, I’ll try to find some info.
A full scale replica mound was featured at the 1901 World Fair in Buffalo. The World Fair was all about creating the false history of the world.
Science has been arguing back and forth about the age, with the latest installment being in 2019 that pushes the dates back even further, the other dates are now labeled as remodeling or improvments. The new study comes just as Serpent Mound is being advanced for addition to the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Serpent Mound is now listed as a “Great Wonder of the Ancient World” by National Geographic Magazine.
It is said to be built inside a crater from a flying space rock
Cohokia is the largest archeologic site north of Mexico with an earthen mound temple pyramid thats the biggest in the America’s.
Henry Brackenridge visited the site and published the first detailed description of the largest mound. He named it Monks Mound. In 1831 T. Amos Hill bought the plot including the Mound. He built a house on the upper terrace, and sank a well. This work revealed various archaeological remains, including human bones
The Hopewell culture flourished in Ohio and other parts of eastern North America during the Middle Woodland Period, possibly as early as 100 B.C. We do not know what these people might have called themselves. The name we use comes from Mordecai Hopewell, a Chillicothe landowner on whose property mounds were excavated in the 1800s. The site exemplified all the significant features of the culture, so it became the “type site” and its name was applied to the entire culture.
Harrington’s bio reads much like all the other people; attended priemere universities, worked under famous World Fair instructors, directed over the CCC. Many of the sites he excavated I covered in the Westward Expansion essay.
One thing I see in his Ministry of Truth bio that merits further investigation is a paragraph about him leading a peyote ceremony at a friend house in Greenwich Village to a group of anarchists. G.V. was the home of many affluent social reformers and art aficionados and mention of the place is a mark. Also that it was specifically the Hapgoods is significant. Trust me, those ppl claim theyre anarchists but they only work to further the status quo.
Some of his ‘discoveries’ are below
The Great Mortuary, aka Craig Mound, aka The Spiro Mound, is the second-largest mound on the Spiro site and the only burial mound.
Such objects have traditionally been created by women in historic tribes. Also found inside were several examples of Mississippian stone statuary made from Missouri flint clay and Mill Creek chert bifaces, all thought to have originally come from the Cahokia site in Illinois.
Big Nose Mask, Who?
Maybe you think thats crazy talk but multiple big nose masks have been excavated over the region. The mask on the right comes from the Ginger mummy sites in Tibet and Autonomous Regions of China. I wonder if the big schnoz is supposed to be representative of anyone in particular?
Spiro Mounds artifacts are owned by the University of Tulsa and held by the Thomas Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The shell carving on the left is a mystery with no explanation offered, The icon on the right is the Buddhist Dharmachakra. each with similar features, most notably is the three arm spiral. Religious imagery is reused all the time, no matter if the two cultures are separated by a thousand years and thousand miles. The thing that gets me is when they play stupid and pretend like theres no connection.
