Case of the Dropa Stones
In 1938, an archeological expedition led by Dr. Chi Pu Tei into the Baian-Kara-Ula mountains of China made an astonishing discovery in some caves that had apparently been occupied by some ancient culture. Buried in the dust of ages on the cave floor were hundreds of stone disks.
A total of 716 discs were found.
Measuring about nine inches in diameter, each had a circle cut into the center and was etched with a spiral groove, making it look for all the world like some ancient phonograph record some 10,000 to 12,000 years old. The spiral groove, it turns out, is actually composed of tiny hieroglyphics that tell the incredible story of spaceships from some distant world that crash-landed in the mountains. The ships were piloted by people who called themselves the Dropa, and the remains of whose descendents, possibly, were found in the cave.
If there were hundreds of discs all with writing on them and the writing has been translated then what do all the other discs say? I have not found any mention of the contents of the other discs. Do you have more information on this? Feel free to contact me.
This picture of a stone disc is claimed on the internet to be one of the Dropa stone discs. However by comparing it's size to the chairs in the picture it is clearly larger than the supposed nine inch discs. In fact no picture purporting to be of the discs depicts them as having spiral writing on them.
Around 23 crystal skulls were also found in the caves: webs.lanset.com/dolphin5/siriusly/thumbnails2_001.htm
The finder believes that they were used in conjunction with the Dropa Stones as a form of radio communications with their home planet.
These discs have circular markings on them but they are not spiral and lettering cannot be seen on them.
