Nampa Doll


Nampa, Idaho

2 million years ago




In 1889 this clay doll, about 1 1/2" in length, was brought up by a well drill from a depth of 300 feet. The strata at this depth is dated at about 2 million years old. The figurine was found under several different strata including fifteen feet of lava basalt. Also from this depth were brought up many small clay balls.


The object may have been pushed down by the drill bit from a higher elevation or it may have fallen through a fissure in the ground.


The presence of iron on the surface of the figurine indicates that it is of ancient origin and could not have been hoaxed. Many scientists who investigated the incident shortly after the discovery agreed that the figurine is authentic and of very ancient origins.


It is possible that the figurine had fallen through a fissure in the ground but, as there is no physical evidence to prove this theory it is simply a means of explaining something that does not fit with the established theory of man's history.
