The tale of the Pedro Mummy sounds like something out of The Lord of the Rings. It remains a mystery even today.
It all started while digging for gold within the San Pedro Mountains, Wyoming, two men discovered a small cavern buried deep; hidden in it was a well-preserved mummy. What gave them pause was not its condition, but its size. It was surprisingly tiny!
Sitting down, it came up to a height of 6½ inches, while its standing height was estimated to be fourteen inches.
