SUBJECT: 1.03b Archaeology and Anthropology Part 2
Dear Director of the Museum,
You have asked me to present some information to you; I hope I have everything you’re looking for.
A hypothesis is a mere assumption or guess at a question or series of events.
There were several artifacts found at the site, I believe that the first two artifacts found may have been prehistoric pipes. My reasoning behind this assumption is there is an odor coming from the inside of a compartment that may or may not have held something similar to tobacco. The shape of the artifacts is square with a small opening that extends out. This to me looks like an old pipe.
Another set or artifacts were three small cylinders that ants could crawl through, these could either be the molds for the pipe spout or they could have been the cases to small writing utensils, it’s possible the small cases could have help led, since there is led and graphite residue on the insides of the containers. I believe these artifacts were used after the Mesozoic time frame.
Our next artifact is a paper cover pouch with hundreds of individual slices inside. These slices have a limestone complexion but they have the texture of sleet, this means these slices could have been carved from the side of a cave.
I think these slices with their pictures and strange writing could be a Geography book from that time. If it is was a geography book I believe it was used in a school type format, which means there were people who were learning form it, or scouting out the area.
The paper cover is tattered and some of the slices are broken and very hard to understand so we believe it wasn’t as important as some other artifacts that have been very well preserved.
Because of the wear on these items we believe they were used right after the flood, which is the same time the Cenozoic period came about.
The next paper cover, I believe is a journal that tells about what was happening in that... [continues]
