Who Is Buried in Ohio’s Burial Mounds?
by Christine B.
In Ohio (USA) there are over 70 mounds supposedly built by Indians of the Adena and Hopewell tribes. These Indians lived in central and southern Ohio from about 3,000 BC until the 16th century AD. They were classified as mound builders because that’s what they did. Some of the mounds they amassed were for burying their dead, but others, like the Serpent Mound (pictured at the right) were just “decorative,” as far as anyone can determine.
However, in the late 1800s archeologist made a mysterious find in one of the burial mounds that was totally unexpected. They uncovered the remains of a “man” who was much larger than the other skeletons discovered in these mounds. He was buried 14 feet deep within the center of one of the mounds. Most of his torso and appendages were clad in copper, as if in armor. Large pearls were found in his mouth and around his neck was a necklace of pearl-studded bear teeth. It was obvious to the scientists that these remains were not like all the others that had been discovered in the area. No one has ever been able to uncover the mystery of the origin of these remains.
The Serpent Mound is located in Southern Ohio not far from the Ohio River. It is the largest earthwork effigy found in the world. Creating the 1370 foot snake-like mound would have taken many years and a great deal of work to complete. Since its discovery in 1846, no one has been able to determine why it was built. Seen from the ground level one cannot make out what it is, but looked down at from a height it can be distinguished as a long snake with a curled tail at one end and a snake-like head with an open mouth holding an egg at the other end. There are no high mountains in this area where this mound can be observed from above it—it can be seen fully only by air. So, why build it? It remains a mystery to this day.
The Nephilim Chronicles suggests an answer to what was found in the Ohio Burial Mound in 1846. Nephilim were mentioned in the Bible and are thought to be ancient alien astronauts. That theory makes more sense than any other. Many huge skeletal remains have been found in other areas of the world as well, so it’s thought that the Nephilim landed in many different areas on Earth.
