The figurines of Acambaro, a series of artistically driven figurines, that perplex all who have the opportunity to examine them.
They were discovered by German, Waldemar Julsrud in the July of 1944, within Acambaro, Mexico.
With the help of locals reports of other similar discoveries in the region, he found them buried at the base of a mountain.
They represent, among other things, unknown camels, animals, enormous ancient reptiles, and possibly even aliens.
Various examples from the collection are currently on public display, at the museum of Acámbaro.
Although many artefacts have surfaced over the years, claiming to show unknown, extinct creatures, even displaying dinosaurs, most are usually identified as hoaxes…
However, the Acambaro Figures are quite the opposite…
Charles Hapgood historian of science at Keene College in New Hampshire, best known for his discoveries regarding the Piri Reis maps, and its with ancient Antarctica. Has also supported the claim that the figurines are genuine ancient artefacts, which show extinct animals, miniature “goblin-esque” creatures, and quite possibly ancient, extra-terrestrial beings.
Due to these claims, and the many sceptics who were ferociously arguing against such a posit, official radiocarbon dating was arranged and conducted in the late 60’s, using organic materials from their surfaces.
However, to academia’s chagrin, the results indicated dates of around 6,500 years old, this, based on three samples.
Yet amazingly, the results were ignored in favour of persistence, that they are nothing but modern souvenirs, made for the tourist industry.
None of the publicly displayed examples resemble any known extinct dinosaur, instead, it is suggested that they are representations of once living animals.
Although the carbon dating had proven their authenticity, sceptics were still arguing that they were a modern hoax.
A few years later, Thermo-luminescent tests were agreed upon by all, as being sufficient enough to establish the figures, approximate date of manufacture.
So in 1972, Froelich Ramey, of Pennsylvania Museum, conducted this analysis, however to his dismay, and the tremendous embarrassment of academia, he also obtained dates of well over 4500 years.
Indeed, even their excavation was observed by a trained archaeologist, known as Charles di Peso.
It seems that no matter what certain individuals try, in their attempts discredit the authenticity of the Acamboro figures, all they seem to accomplish is validating them further.
Although some of the more compelling figurines have disappeared over the years, the vast portion of these mysterious and perplexing artefacts remain on public display.
Who made the Acamboro figurines?
What do most of them depict?
With attitudes as they are within mainstream academia, it’s a battle to establish the facts surrounding such relics, a battle we are slowly winning.
