Limited is known about this archeological find, and even British archeologists, in whose motherland the relic is currently kept, have little knowledge about it.
Or, at the very least, it was stored earlier, because there hasn’t been any news about the discovery in years. Furthermore, there are only two well-known images of this find: one is black and white and is from the early twentieth century, while the other is of higher quality and dates from the middle or end of the century.
The English fleet took the French-controlled Caribbean island of Guadeloupe in 1810, and among the many local trophies carried to England was a limestone block containing a skeleton of a lady without a head and hands embedded in it.
It was a totally typical modern skeleton uncovered in a 1.6-kilometer-long stratum of limestone on the island’s northeastern coast.
The French discovered several skeletons of prehistoric animals and only one human skeleton in this area prior to the British conquest. This layer has a contemporary date of 28 million years. That is, the formation of this layer occurred 25 million years before the appearance of man.
A skeleton was brought to the British Museum in 1812, and when scientist Karl Koenig inspected it two years later, he instantly ran into dating issues, recognizing that it was a modern type skeleton but candidly stating that he had no idea how old it was.
The study of ancient human remains was only being started at the time; for example, the first bones of a Neanderthal man were discovered in 1857.
As a result, despite its ambiguous antiquity, the ancient skeleton sparked a lot of attention and became a permanent part of the museum’s natural history collection.
This skeleton began to draw the attention of creationists around the end of the nineteenth century (supporters of the divine theory of the origin of the world and man). According to them, an extremely ancient and yet totally modern human skeleton, which belonged to a woman who lived before the Flood, proved the truth of their ideas.
However, a bizarre skeleton was quickly removed from the museum shelf and placed in the basement, where it should still be labeled PA HR 4128. This skeleton was even mentioned on the official website of the British Museum until 2006 when it was deleted.
As far as we know, no one has conducted a thorough examination of this skeleton or even attempted to do so. As a result, some conspiracy theorists believe that this skeleton is hidden from view so that no one may ask difficult questions.
Skeptics claim that this skeleton dates from the 15th century AD and that it fell into the limestone stratum by accident, possibly after an earthquake, when a fissure appeared.
They cite the fact that an old graveyard was located near the limestone rock, as well as the fact that traces of sand were discovered in a piece of limestone alongside the skeleton, as recorded by Karl König.
This skeleton could be a 15th-century skeleton now. However, this has not been verified. Even at 28 million years old, it could potentially be considerably older.
