York., discovered a cave in which they  found the skeleton of a man of gigantic size. It was 


swathed in rawhide trappings that kept it in a sitting postureNear the skeleton were 


several bowls of reddish clay but almost as hard as flint. A rude stone tablet was found near 


the skeleton side covered with rude pictures of birds and beasts, among them one of a 


monster half beast, half reptile. A number of implements were also found in the cave, among 


them a huge ax made of stone and stone spear heads of unusual size.
