Neanderthal Hybrids Described in Iowa Burial Mounds



Beetle browed "archaic" type skulls have been described across North America.

    What sort of people were the first inhabitants of Iowa is a question that must ever be of interest. It is generally believed by archaeologists that remains of two distinct prehistoric races have been found in the Valley of the Mississippi.
   The first human skulls discovered resemble those of the gorilla, having the thick ridges over the eyes and an almost total absence of forehead, indicating a low degree of intelligence.
