Nephilim Remains and Sun Temple Henge Discovered in Delaware County, Indiana

   About one mile and a half south of Muncie, in Center Township, is another class of these earthworks - a mound of considerable proportions which is said to have been dug into by some parties in search of relics. The excavation, however, developed the fact that it contained, instead of relics, human bones. “One of these skeletons was of gigantic proportions. The jaw and thigh bones were in a good state of preservation, and nearly complete. The jaw bone was so large that it could be easily slipped over the jaw of the largest man of the party - a tall, big-boned six-footer, and the thigh bone of the skeleton was three inches longer than his”. The discovery of these numerous bones fixed the class under which their specimen should be arranged - the sepulchral - and would also warrant the presumption that these were specimens of some of the other classes not far distant, though the investigation has not developed the fact.

   In other portions of the county, there are traces of the former existence of mounds and enclosures, the identity of which cannot now be well established, owing to the obliterating effects which time has wrought.

 On the mound near the southeast corner of the Lenox tract, several large mulberry trees were growing when the locality first became settled by white men, and for many years it was known as “Mulberry Hill”.

   The uniform character of these mounds, and their close resemblance to what is recognized as ancient earthworks, perhaps entitle them to a place in that category, although they have hitherto - escaped the attention of our archaeologist.

   The fact that there are gravel beds, more or less extensive, in each, has led to the opening of one of them, the central mound on the Lenox farm for the repairing of the roads. During the progress of these excavations, human bones have, from time to time, been exhumed. Several years ago, a skeleton of gigantic proportions was unearthed, and bones have been found in several different parts of the mound. No charcoal - usually a part of the contents at these ancient earthworks
