Ancient Indo European (Cro-Magnon) Skull Described at West Virginia Stone Wall

Ancient Indo European (Cro-Magnon) Skull Described at West Virginia Stone Wall

Skull of one of the red haired giants from Lovelock Cave in Nevada. Note the protruding brow ridge and developed occipital. These two skull traits are diagnostic of early Indo European skulls.

Early Nordic skulls that are the closest affinity to the earlier Cro-Magnon. Note the similarities in the brow ridge and protruding occipital with the Lovelock skull. Like the skull described in West Virginia, the parietal bone extends the length of the skull.

Ancient Indo European Skeletons Found Buried at the Stone Wall

     I measured several skeletons in position and found them to average about five feet, ten inches.  With one exception, the cranium was well proportioned, with broad and prominent forehead, and facial bones more nearly resembled the white, than the red race.  This exception was in all probability, a deformity, else it was a very much lower order of animal intellectually, though not physically.  The teeth indicated an age of about twenty-five, and imbedded in the front of the lower jaw bone was a fully developed tooth which had never penetrated the bone.  The skull was canoe shaped, sharp front and back, long and very narrow.  The occipital bone was out of all proportion, curved under, and terminating in a sharp point.  The parietal bones occupied nearly the entire skull area, as the coronal and lambdoidal sutures were so far forward and back of the usual position that both the frontal and occipital bones were curiosities.  The frontal bone was also pointed, and there was no break in the canoe curve from the eye to the nape of the neck.  Other bones denoted full and complete development; but he must have been a fearful sight in life.
