Waldemar Dzhulsrud was a native of Germany, moved to Mexico in the far end of the XIX century. He settled in the small town of Acambaro, 300 kilometers north of Mexico City. There he started his business of hardware, — bringing him quite a decent income. A visit to Dzhulsrud fond archeology. In the early twenties of the XX century, when Padre Martinez th discovered underground cultural monuments Chupikauro eight miles from the hill of El Torso.
But the most interesting event in his life occurred twenty years later, in July 1944. Early in the morning he made horse riding on the slopes of the hill of El Toro and he saw several hewn stone and ceramic fragments protruding from the ground inspecting strange findings Dzhulsrud came to the conclusion that they can not be attributed to any known archaeological culture. Ironmonger decided to start their own archaeological research and hired a local peasant named Odilon Tinajero, promising to pay him one peso for each detected artifact. Therefore Ginahero was extremely careful during the excavations, and accidentally glued the broken items, before taking them to the employer. Thus began to form the famous collection Dzhulsruda, whose completion was engaged first son of Valdemar, Carlos Dzhulsrud and then grandson, Carlos, Jr..
In the end, the collection has become Dzhulsruda total about 35 thousand artifacts. This is mainly statues of various types of clay, molded by hand and treated by open burning. The second category of sculpture in stone-third — ceramics. The most interesting fact was that. that in the whole collection was not a single instance of a recurring sculpture. Size figures range from ten centimeters to one meter in height and a half in length. In addition, the collection has found the same musical instruments, masks, tools of obsidian and jade together with artifacts during excavations were found several human skulls, mammoth skeleton and teeth of horses ice age.
The collection Dzhulsruda were many anthropomorphic statuettes, representing almost a full set of human racial types — Mongoloids, Negroids, caucasoids, Polynesian style, and others. But this was not a major sensation. Most mysterious
was the fact that 2600 is a picture of statues of dinosaurs. Moreover, the variety of types of fossil reptiles is a true wonder. Among them is easily recognizable and well-known fossil species Science: Brachiosaurus, iguanodon, Tyrannosaurus river, Pteranodon, ankylosaurs, plesiosaurs, and many others. There are numerous statues, which modern scholars can not identify, including winged "dinosaurs dragons." But the most striking thing is that the collection contains a large number of images of the person along with the dinosaurs of different species. Also in the collection are now extinct mammals — American camels and horses of the Ice Age, the giant ape and other Pleistocene period.
It is this component of the findings of Acambaro and was the occasion for the long history of the accreditation of the collection and its owner. In many ways, this is understandable, because the coexistence and close interaction between man and dinosaur not only refutes the linear theory of evolution theory of the origin of species on earth, but comes into irreconcilable contradiction with all mod officially adopted the ideological paradigm. When, in 1947 at his own expense Dzhulsrud published a book about the figures, then the official science has not shown any interest in her. And further recognition to the collection came with great difficulty.
In 1950 he arrived in Acambaro American journalist Lowell Harmer. He was present during the excavations on the hill of El Toro and even photographed Dzhulsruda with freshly excavated statues of dinosaurs. After him, the Los Angeles-based journalist William Russell published an article about the excavation Dzhulsruda with photo coverage. In its publication, Russell pointed out that the artifacts were removed from a depth of 5-6 feet (half a meter), and many items were entwined by roots, so he did not have the slightest doubt about the authenticity of the findings. These publications have played a role in promoting the collection and Waldemar Dzhulsruda breach the conspiracy of silence academics.
The thesis of the forgeries in 1952, officially denied and the Mexican government. Then superintendent of the National Institute of Irrigation, Francisco Sanchez said he could clearly note the lack of a ceramic production in Acambaro. Mayor of Acambaro Juan Carranza also published an official statement in which he said that the results of a special investigation conducted in the area revealed that in and around the city there is not one person who would be engaged in the production of such products. History professor Ramon Rivera interviewed local elders and learned that over the previous hundred years in Acambaro never encountered anything like the scale ceramic production. However, for any sensible person it is clear that no one will make thousands and thousands of figures and bury them deep in the ground to play the public. A collection has special features. It not only contains a single transcript, but ceramic figurines are made of different kinds of clay, in various styles and with varying degrees of skill. For the production of figurines would take a lot of wood, which in the dry and treeless area Acambaro always been extremely expensive. Furthermore, such a large-scale production with an open roasting simply could not go unnoticed.
By 1954, initiated by the malevolent criticism collection Dzhulsruda peaked, and this led to the fact that mainstream science has finally shown interest in it. Acambaro in a delegation of scientists led by the Director of the Department of Prehispanic Monuments of the National Institute of Anthropology and History Dr. Edward Nokveroy. Apart from him, the team included three anthropologist and historian. This official delegation itself chose the place for the control of excavation on the hillside. They were held in the presence of many witnesses of reputable local citizens. Just a few hours after it was found a large number of statues, similar samples from the collection Dzhulsruda. According to the statement of capital archaeologists found artifacts examination clearly demonstrated their antiquity. The group congratulated Dzhulsruda with outstanding discovery, and two of them have promised to publish the results of the trip in scientific journals. But it took three weeks, and on his return to Mexico City doctor Nokvera presented a report, which stated that the collection is a falsification Dzhulsruda because it contains statues of dinosaurs.
It's complicated, and evolved in the future, have always been willing to expose Dzhulsruda. Meanwhile, experts from the U.S. found that the figures of the age of two to five thousand years. The collection contains a large number of stone figures, and they show signs of severe erosion. It is virtually impossible to forge. It turned out that the hill of El Toro Indians considered sacred since ancient times. Now the locals claim that there are four tunnels that lead deep into the hill. There seemed to be hidden underground city of some ancient civilization. But people carefully hide the entrances to these tunnels because they fear that their homes will be subject to unnecessary high interest aliens. And American John Tierney, almost forty years studying materials from Acambaro, is convinced that the collected Dzhulsrudom collection — only part of a vast "library", accompanying the tomb. He believes that the main component of the monument to El Toro to be buried, which has not yet been found.
It should be noted that in 1945 the director of archeology at Acambaro area National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City, Carlos Perez said that the authenticity of the items in the collection Dzhulsruda no doubt. Moreover, he personally ever learn dinosaur figurines found at the scene of some of the ancient settlements of Mexico. In 1978, the federal police confiscated two Relic Hunter 3300 statues, the style of execution similar to a collection Dzhulsruda. Among them were nine figures dinosaurs. That's just all of them were found on the hill of El Chivo, also located near Acambaro.
To say that the Indians of Meso-America lived alongside the dinosaurs, it would be somewhat rash. Logical to assume the following. Archaeology is hardly a pastime, which attracted only our contemporaries. Digging Roman and Etruscan antiquities from the ground is very loved in medieval Italy. Known, he would not mind to go deep in sand in search of something very old and have been the subjects of the Egyptian pharaohs. It is possible that their contemporaries in Mexico could do and paleontology, and even very successful in this. So that pupils in schools in the classroom made of clay figurines of dinosaurs, sometimes fantasizing and depicting fossil dinosaurs with people. When a ruler, patron knowledge, died at his disposal put thousands and thousands of clay figures and much more. Among other things, there were figures of dinosaurs .. But this, of course, only one of the hypotheses.
