Recommended Posts

UM-Bot

The discovery in Iran of a tiny mummified body back in 2005 prompted rumors of an ancient city of dwarfs.

The mummy, which was found in the ancient Persian village of Makhunik ( modern day Iran ), caused quite a stir when it was first revealed almost 10 years ago.

QUOTE-

Upon further investigation no

evidence of the abnormally small

buildings could be found and the

mummy, far from being an adult,

turned out to be little more than a

baby. Anthropological studies also

dated the mummy to just 400 years

ago, putting to rest the concept of a

5,000-year-old dwarven city.

In the end the incident turned out

to be little more than a prime

example of media sensationalism

based on false information, rumor

and misrepresentation

.

somehow, i'm failing to see the story here, or am i missing something...?

In defense of the OP, I'm sure he posted it as an example of media sensationalism.

Sure the article has it's short-comings and the media sensationalism dimishes the actual facts, but it's a bit dwarfing to think that a civilization of small people existed.

What do you mean? Which scientists got what age wrong?

Have a look at this article: http://www.cais-soas.com/News/2005/October2005/20-10-25.htm

It dates from October 2005 and already contains skeptical comments. The only two people named in the article are archaeologists and both doubt the dwarf claims. Yes, it mentions the idea the dwarf must be 16-17 years old, but the assertion has no name attached to it.
