In October 1932, while digging for gold in the San Pedro mountains, Wyoming, two prospectors, Cecil Mayne and Frank Carr, blasted their way through some thick rock. When the dust settled, they saw they had opened up a small room. This is where they first saw the mummy of a tiny person. Upon its discovery, it was instantly called a hoax by most scholars. X-rays were performed on the mummy in 1950 and it was discovered that there was a "manlike" skeleton inside, almost fully formed.
