New York may have huge bones at the bottom of a river!

The famous prospector in the United States, John Reeves, recently said that there is a river in New York He has real wealth at the bottom. On “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast last December, Reeves said that an entire cabin holding prehistoric mammoth bones was dumped in the East River more than 80 years ago.

This could have happened because they were deemed unsuitable for the American Museum of Natural History, and so were thrown overboard. Reeves said, “Let me tell you something about mammoth bones: they are very valuable.” In this way, a kind of treasure hunt began, to search for bones that since 1940 had been at the bottom of the East River, east of Manhattan Island.

However, it should be noted that there is no evidence of this prehistoric skeleton at the site, and so far there is only Reeves’ claim in Podcast by Joe Rogan. But that wasn’t enough to stop dozens of fishermen from sailing down the river, armed with their search gear.

Reeves is famous for conducting excavations in Alaska, and when asked by the press about the origin of this story, he published a document signed by three people, which read:

  • Richard Osborne: Anthropologist.
  • Robert Sattler: Alaskan archaeologist;
  • Robert Evander: A man who worked in the Paleontology Department of the American Museum of Natural History.

Theoretically, the document refers to an excavation dump in the waters of the strait. The hypothesis is attributed to Osborne, who was an employee of an excavation company, as he had heard this story from someone else. According to legend, chests dumped in the canal brought tens of tons of archaeological material, which, if true, is in fact an enormous wealth for anyone who finds it.

Finally, speaking of the alleged bones, the American Museum of Natural History dumped a bucket of cold water on the treasure hunters who were searching for the bones: “We have no record of these fossils being dumped in the East River, nor can we find any record of such a report in the museum’s archives or in Other scientific sources.
