Strange Ancient Skull With Horns Was Found During An Archaeological Excavation In Sayre

It was late in the 1880s. A group of scientists was on an expedition across the Bradford County area of Pennsylvania, near the New York state line in the state’s northeastern corner.

The party, which included a Pennsylvania state historian, two professors, and a member of the Presbyterian church’s hierarchy, had traveled to Sayre, where they became interested in a series of what seemed to be burial mounds.

The church’s Dr. P.G. Donehoo and professors A.B. Skinner and W.K. Moorehead of the American Investigation Museum and Phillips Academy in Andover, respectively, led their group to the first of the mounds to commence cautious excavation. What they discovered has baffled scientists for nearly a century.

The crew discovered several male remains after painstakingly scraping away dirt and pebbles. The frames’ burial date was believed to be A.D. 1200. So far, so normal. But then they measured the remnants and examined the structure more attentively. It was later determined that all of the males had been over seven feet tall, a height (in-group) unheard of in ancient times.

Strangest of all, careful inspections of the mystery men’s skulls revealed that they possessed horns, two genuine horns each, that were an intrinsic component of each skull. It was impossible, but they were present. Seven-foot-tall horned giants who died over 800 years ago!

The ecstatic experts carefully wrapped the remains for shipping and delivered them to the American Investigation Museum in Philadelphia for closer inspection. For months, specialists at the site pondered over the mysterious skeletons.

The skulls were then alleged to have been misplaced, stolen, or lost from the museum. In their official excavation reports, neither Donehoo, Skinner, nor Moorehead mentioned the discovery of any human skeletons at Sayre with gigantism or horned protrusions. Journals and periodicals published articles about this unexpected discovery. Then they vanished and were never seen again, carrying with them the puzzle that will remain unresolved for the rest of time.
