Ancient Mummies Discovered in Kentucky Cave

Ancient Mummies Discovered in Kentucky Cave




American Antiquarian July 1870


   Within the town limits of Glasgow Junction, Kentucky, a wonder cave has recently been discovered. This has been explored in one direction for the distance of nearly twenty-three miles, and a number of embalmed or mummified bodies have been discovered, similar to those found some years ago in the Mammoth and Salt Caves of the same state. The accounts of these discoveries are as yet measure, but important results are looking for. The bodies have been placed in rude stone coffins, which presented every indication of great age.
