Mound Builders

The curator, Prof. Wyman, says: "Of the tibiae of forty individuals from the mounds of Kentucky, one-third presented this flattening to the extent that the transverse did not exceed 0.60 of the fore and aft diameter. The most extreme case was from the mound on the river Rouge in Michigan, in which the transverse was only 0.48. In the most marked case mentioned by Broca, viz: In the old man from the Cro-Magnon (France), it was, as deduced from his figures, 0.60." Prof, Wyman draws attention to certain resemblances in this bone to the same bone in the ape, adding: " In some of the tibiae the amount of flattening surpasses that of the gorilla and chimpanzee, in each of which we found the short 0.67 of the long diameter, while in the tibiae from Michigan it was only 0.48. Subsequent to this (in 1870), I discovered in adjacent mounds several instances in which the compression of the tibiae was developed to even a greater extreme.
