Detailed Product Description
Canada, Mitchell-Hedges & Honey, 1995. 255 pp, b/w photos, map. Softcover. Fine.

The amazing career and adventures of Mike Mitchell-Hedges (1882-1959), adventurer, traveler, fabulist, and writer. Mitchell-Hedges is principally known for the discovery of the Mitchell-Hedges crystal skull which he supposedly found with his adopted daughter Anna Mitchell-Hedges (Le Guillon) in Lubaantun, Belize. However, he made no record of the skull until the late 1940s which was around the same time a crystal skull was auctioned off by Sydney Burney at Sotheby's in 1943. Controversies continued when identical measurements were found between Sotheby's skull and Mitchell-Hedges' skull, leaving the authenticity of this artifact questionable at best. Mitchell-Hedges' crystal skull was retained in the possession of his adopted daughter until her death in 2007. Prior to her death, the skull was only shown to the public periodically, making it hard for the skull to be accessed and tested for authenticity. However, since Anna's death the skull has been examined thoroughly and despite many previous claims, the skull has been dated as post Columbus era. Based on microscopic evidence, the skull's tool markings are a result of modern equipment and not of tools found in ancient Maya sites. Mitchell-Hedges is said to have inspired the film character Indiana Jones.
