Foundations and Concepts.

This book gathers together works dating primarily from the early nineteenth century. The literature covers scientific and popular descriptions of the discover of Indian mummies found in Copperas (Johnson) Cave, Tennessee and Short Cave, Kentucky. This collection is not meant to be an exhaustive search of mummy references. Rather it contains key citations covering the subject of cave mummies that could help the historian, archaeologist or speleologist. References to Indian mummy discoveries came into print long after each event. Pioneer natural scientist were completely unprepared with adequate explanations for the preservation, age and cultural affinity to these early people.
