Calalus reopened

Prof. Cyclone Covey

Thomas Bent & Charles Maniere from 3 ½ - 6 1/2 ‘depth 1925 NW of Tucson, Arizona dug lead swords, spears, ceremonial standards, and 6 pair of riveted crosses whose inner faces bore engraved annals in bad Latin of a Jewish colony, Calalus, 750-900, coinciding with Toltec domination of Snaketown (excavated 1937 on), the annals’ probable Rhoda, 55 air miles NW on the Gila, abandoned c.1450. Artifacts could not be inserted to lie flat without fracturing formations, so caliche rose over both sites accelerated by longstanding lagoons from overflowing Gila and Santa Cruz respectively.
