Ancient Human Giant Buried With His Weapons In Bartholomew County, Indiana

Ancient Human Giant Buried With His Weapons In Bartholomew County, Indiana



 The Daily Republican (Rushville, Indiana) January 11, 1906
Giant Skeletons And Copper Implements, Evidence of Ancient Civilization, Unearthed Near Rugby.
   One day last week while making an excavation into the mound-like formation, some farmer near Rugby in Bartholomew county unearthed a number of skeletons of giant size. Buried with the skeletons, were a number of various implements made of copper of curious shapes.

   These remains were taken to Dr. Regenas at Hope, who is an anthropologist and collector of antiquities. He pronounced them relics of the copper age, in the history of ancient civilization in America. Few remains of this character have been discovered in Indiana. Dr. Regenas is having photographs of them taken and is preparing an account of their discovery, which is to be published in a few days.
