Neanderthal Skull Reported From Kansas in 1902

Curator of Kansas City Museum Likens Local Find of a Giant Skull to Spy Neanderthal

Marion Daily Star, April 7, 1902


Scientific Discovery on a Kansas Farm

Made While Digging a Tunnel

The Long Looked For
Proof That North America Was Inhabited By Man During the Great Ice
Period Will Be Furnished It Is Believed, By This Find

The public museum of
Kansas City is to be enriched by the addition of the skull and other
fragmentary bones of a prehistoric men that were found a few days ago
deep in a hillside of a Kansas farm ar a point about two miles in a
northeasterly direction from Lansing, says the Kansas City Star. The
skull and other bones and their geological environment indicate the
skeleton to have been that of a primitive man of the glacial or great
ice period centuries ago.

That mankind existed
during the glacial period has been established by discoveries in
Europe, and while it has been presumed that man also lived in America
at the same time, no dubitable evidence of the fact has heretofore
been obtained.

When the skull was
found, it was not thought to have any scientific value. Several days
ago M. C. Long curator of the Kansas City public museum, and Edwin
Butts, civil engineer for the Metropolitan Street Railway company,
both enthusiastic archaeologist, went to the place of the discovery
and secured the fragments of the skeleton and brought them to Kansas
City. Both Mr. Long and Mr. Butts are enthusiastic over the
discovery. From the appearance of the skull and its position in the
earth they are convinced it is that of a glacial man. If this fact
be established, it will be the first proof of the kind found on the
North American continent. In a short time the skull will be placed
on view in the public museum. The facts of the discovery have been
communicated to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington.

The find was made on
the farm of Thomas and M. Cohncannon. They were digging a tunnel
into a grerat hill on their farm with the purpose of using the
excavation as a storage place for apples and other fruits. They dug
directly into the side of the hill. The skull was found about sixty
five feet in. Other bones of the skeleton were beside it. One of
the farmers drove a pickax through the skull in loosening it from its
stony bed, and later bones fell on it, so that it was broken into
half a dozen pieces, but Mr. Long has cemented it together. The
skull is that of a man with hardly any forehead. Directly back from
the eyes receads the frontal bone. The fragments found shop he had a
big jaw. The skull is very thick and strong, and its back part is
broad and well developed. The phrenologist avert that this
development at the back shows an
abnormal na
ture. But there is no noble dome, no high and
rounding forehead, that shows the development of intelligence.

skull practically intact, a portion of the lower jaw, a part of a
thigh bone and several other fragments were found. The bones
indicate the man to have been large. The head is small. The orbits
for the eyes are close together and appear exceptionally large. Over
the orbits are well developed ridges that probably denote perceptive
faculties. The bones were found huddled together. They lay partially
imbeded in hardpan. A close and exhaustive investigation showed
that the various strata of rocks and soils and the “water marks”
had never been disturbed vertically and neither had there been any
lateral disturbance of the hill. The skeleton evidently had been
deposited there before the great mass of rock and soil above and
about it. Had mound builders or Indians ever dug deep into the hill
they could not have avoided leaving traces of their excavation.

When we first heard
of the find, we deemed it the usual story of a ‘mound burial,’
said Mr. Long the other day. “our investigation shows beyond all
doubt that is a skeleton of a man of the glacial period.. After a
most exhaustive investigation, Mr. Butts and I reached the
conclusion the skeleton was deposited there during the glacial period
or drift. How long ago the ice period was is not definitely known;
50,000 years perhaps; perhaps much longer.

The evidence is very
conclusive that this was not a burial or intrusive deposit, as there
was no evidence of any disturbance of the earth. The great depth at
which the skeleton was found precludes any idea of a usual burial,
and the stratification of the earth both over and under the skeleton
shows that the bones lay ther while the mass of soil was deposited
over them. Attached to the skull is a kind of stony formation or
cement, such as is usually found attached to bones of the mastodon
and quite similar to the formation found in the jaws of the mastadon
in the public museum.”

Mr Long says that the
ground around which the skeleton was found shows, conclusive evidence
of its glacial formation. Comparison of this skull with photographic
illustrations of the skull of the “Man of Spy,” a famous skeleton
found in a cave in Belgium, shows them to be practically alike.

  1. BTW all of the lower lines are supposed to be working links to the "Nephilim" site: the originating site was labelled as one on Native Americans, though.

  2. The Kansas skull from 1902 was judged to be identical with a skull from Sky Cave in Belgium. However, the Sky Cave skull is not Neanderthal but archaic H. sapiens, who survived in Africa until 13,000 years ago. This makes the attribution much more reasonable, since archaic H. sapiens was not far removed from us, fished, and could travel by boat.
    There is good deal of misunderstanding on this point. A brow ridge does not automatically mean Neanderthal. Perhaps all American sites earlier than 200 ka were archaic H. sapiens, not Neanderthal. What happend next is the big question, because out of the blue a group of H. sapiens showed up in S. Africa in 163 ka, full blown, highly advanced, cold adapted, leather clothing, bone-tipped fishing spears.

    You are really good at finding this stuff!

  3. As a matter of fact, NO: the SPY cave skull was the one specified and it is a well-known Neanderthal example: and it is exactly the one I have illustrated here. The question in this case is not only concerning the brow ridge, but the extremely low vault, as is illustrated by the original article and reprinted here.

    The clipping was from a site under a different name which referenced the "Nephilim of the Ohio Valley" site and I freely included their links in this posting. Since then, the owner of that "Nephilim" site has been unhappy about my properly citing his material under the terms of Fair Use and including the links to the original site. Because of that, I do not now have anything more to do with that site or its owner.

    "Archaic Homo sapiens" are sometimes easily discriminated from Neanderthals but Neanderthals are also frequently INCLUDED in the classification of "Archaic Homo sapiens" by the literature. And so saying it one way or the other pretty much varies by whichever authority you chose. I have published on the subjects several times on this blog, and such claims are not solely related to the size or the shape of the browridge but also to the flatness of the top of the skull, heaviness of the bone, general skull contours, large size of the face and sebveral specific features of the teeth, all of which tend to fall into the Neanderthaloid general category. Some of them are better examples of this than others, of course. But we are not talking in terms of only a few skulls here or there, but dozens of them, from both Americas and stretching from very early times up until very recent ones. Many of these are partly-Neanderthaloid but several are good contenders for including the whole spectrum of morphological traits.

    Best Wishes, Dale D.

  4. As yet we dont even know what Denisovan skull looks like, but we do know that Denisovans were genetically closeer to Neanderthals than either one was to modern humans.

  5. Some amazing articles. Many of them do not have dates or years. Do you have this information on them?

    1. Ordinarily I do not have direct access to the original materials but only on later reports referencing them. This one selected is credited to Marion Daily Star, April 7, 1902 and it is the one the illustration is from. I did not assemble the long list the links go to and I cannot be held as responsible for that information, most of which is published by a resource which is hostile to me.
