Sunday, August 21 is the Friends of Serpent Mound's Annual Mysteries Day event. It's just a fun time for the community to get together and learn more about the 'mysteries' of Serpent Mound and the ancient peoples who built and used the site. The event starts at 1PM in the picnic shelter with a community pot luck lunch, so bring a dish and share in the food. Then sit back and hear a couple of lectures by myself and from author Jason Jarrell! My talk is going to be an eye-opener about the largely-unknown excavations of F.W. Putnam who excavated at the site on behalf of the Harvard Peabody Museum from 1886-1889. Putnam wrote one short article about his findings at the site which was published in 1890. Since then, almost nothing has been reported about those excavations until now! I'll be discussing which parts of the park Putnam excavated, the artifacts that he found in each place, and showing many historical photos (many newly colorized!) that were taken during excavations and reconstructions.
Author Jason Jarrell, who electrified the crowd with his lecture at the Summer Solstice this year, is returning to further fill in the mysteries as to why much of the archaeological findings of the 1800's has left us in this 'mysterious' state of not knowing about our collective ancient heritage. His talk will be in two parts: "Discovery of the Tall Ones" and "Aryansim, Eugenics, and the Tall Ones". It is sure to be one not to miss!
I hope to see everyone there!
