Mound Builders

It is interesting to remember that "the flattest tibiae on record," already referred to, were taken by me from this mound; and all the tibiae had more or less saber-like curvature associated with the platycuemism. It remains for me in this connection to call attention to the fact that the perforation of the humerus is another remarkable characteristic which I have observed to pertain to those platycuemic men of our region. I refer to the communication of the two fossae situated at the lower end of the humerus. This is of great interest, as this peculiarity is most frequently met with in the negro race; it has also been observed in the I ndian, and though not always present, is quite general in the apes, while it is very seldom seen in the white races. One of the most remarkable and extensive series of tumuli which are known to exist in this part of the lake region it was my good fortune to discover in the year 1872.
