Human Skeleton from 28 Million Years Ago? I’m not sure how this is even possible! (The Woman of Guadeloupe)
There is very little information available about this archeological find, and even British archeologists, whose homeland the relic is now stored in, know very little about it.
Or, at the absolute least, it was stored prior to the finding, because there hasn’t been any news about it in years. Furthermore, there are only two well-known photos of this discovery: one is in black and white and originates from the early twentieth century, while the other is in color and is from the middle or end of the century.
In 1810, the English fleet captured the French-controlled Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, and among the many local prizes transported to England was a limestone block containing a skeleton of a lady without a head and hands.
A typical contemporary skeleton was discovered in a 1.6-kilometer-long limestone strata on the island’s northeastern shore.
Prior to the British takeover, the French unearthed many prehistoric animal remains and just one human skeleton in this area. This stratum has been around for 28 million years. That is, the development of this stratum took place 25 million years before man was on the scene.
When scientist Karl Koenig examined a corpse delivered to the British Museum in 1812, he immediately ran into dating complications, acknowledging that it was a modern type skeleton but frankly declaring that he had no clue how old it was.
The study of ancient human remains was only being begun at the time; the first Neanderthal man’s bones were discovered in 1857, for example.
As a result, the old skeleton drew a lot of interest and became a permanent part of the museum’s natural history collection, despite its uncertain antiquity.
Around the turn of the eighteenth century, creationists were interested in this skeleton (supporters of the divine theory of the origin of the world and man). They claimed that an incredibly old and yet completely contemporary human skeleton belonging to a lady who lived before the Flood demonstrated the veracity of their theories.
A strange skeleton, on the other hand, was promptly removed from the museum shelf and deposited in the basement, where it was still classified PA HR 4128. This skeleton was even mentioned on the British Museum’s official website until 2006, when it was removed.
As far as we know, no one has examined or even attempted to examine this skeleton thoroughly. As a result, some conspiracy theorists claim that this skeleton is kept from view to prevent challenging questions from being asked.
Skeptics believe the skeleton is from the 15th century AD and that it fell into the limestone strata by chance, maybe after an earthquake, when a fissure developed.
They mention the discovery of traces of sand in a piece of limestone alongside the skeleton by Karl König, as well as the fact that an old graveyard was located near the limestone rock.
This skeleton might now be a skeleton from the 15th century. This, however, has not been confirmed. Even though it is 28 million years old, it might be far older.
