Chicken Archaeologists

      A feral chicken happened to be found in our front garden herb patch recently. Not knowing where she came from, she now has a nice pen, with a chicken house, and good scratch area. She gets fed high grade laying mash (with no animal by-products), wheat groats, occasionally carrot tops & peels (and other such scraps) as well as a bunch of seashell bits I pounded up with a hammer.

      We seem to get a fresh egg every 2 days or so. These are ‘top of the line’, primo, grade A, eggs, which have orange yolks, as all good free ranges eggs should.

      Thinking ‘Ginger’ needed company, we purchased two three-week-old chicks, ‘Roxy’ and ‘Angel’. They are Rhode Island Red crosses (possibly with White Leghorn), as Ginger appears to be.

      As chickens are wont to do, these ones like to fossick about, looking for scratch. Among the bugs, roots, seeds, grass, and other edibles they find, there are some inedibles. They seem just as happy to dig up these interesting bits, as they are to find the edibles. Some of the finds are shown below. I keep hoping they’ll dig up an 8 or 10 kilogram Platinum/Iridium meteorite, but not so far.

Rare coins, all from the previous millennium. April 2005

My first look at this coiled wire, suggested to me that it was some sort of thermionic coil from a fusion reactor. I later thought it might be a form of ancient hair curler.

When this plastic handle was dug up, my first unsubstantiated conclusion was that it was proof of humans producing polymers in large quantities, long before the 20th century. Later artefacts lead me to a completely different unsubstantiated conclusion… April 2005

This object (also made of plastic) is clearly a control knob of some kind. I don’t like to speculate wildly, but it is most likely for controlling some sort of directed energy weapon, from an alien spacecraft. (This is far more likely than the notion that humans were using plastics centuries ago, when these objects were likely buried.)

This device, found after the control knob, is clearly part of the phase inversion, torroidal vortex field vector manipulating system, for the alien spacecraft’s fusion drive. April 2005


This pistol grip from one of the alien’s weapons is cleverly disguised as part of the femur of an Ankleosaur. (It had me fooled for several weeks.) April 2005

These power pack spheres obviously originally contained Plutonium 238 radioisotope sources inside. As we detected no Plutonium in the spheres, we estimate that the spheres were buried for at least as long as 10 half lives of Pu238. This narrows down the date estimates of the alien visitation to a minimum of 880 years ago. April 2005


Long before the era of ‘brass braziers’, coconut shell tops were popular. The above artefact is evidence that people from south-sea Islands came to western North America, around the same time the aliens did. Could there be a connection? April 2005

This ‘peep hole bra’ artefact raises more questions than it answers. Why is there only one cup? Why are there three peepholes? The only sensible answer here is that this coconut shell bra was worn by a human alien hybrid of some sort. April 2005
