Episode 14 – It Belongs in a Museum! Are You My Mummy?

Welcome to the mid-season! In this installment of Relic’s “It Belongs in a Museum” series…we get weird. Comedian and anthropologist Jake Sully tells us all about the Peking Man– the fossilized remains of an ancient, common ancestor to homo sapiens. Who was the Peking Man and where did he end up? Also, Max looks into the strange tale of the San Pedro Mummy, and journeys further down the rabbit hole into the wild world of mummified discoveries believed (by some) to be alien in origin.

Episode 12 – Curse of the Inca

Since the Spanish age of conquest, the inhabitants near the Llanganates region of Ecuador have feared the stories surrounding a massive cache of priceless artifacts hidden somewhere in the mountains. The treasure of the last Incan King carries an especially deadly curse, and those who go looking for it end up vanishing into the jungle or dying…in eerily similar circumstances.

And if the true events included in this episode’s final sequence intrigue you, I highly recommend the Thinking Sideways Podcast’s episode that covers this mystery in greater detail.

Episode 11 – Dark Oracle

There were several holy sites in ancient Greece where one could receive prophecies, the most famous of these oracles being the Pythia at Delphi. Not as widely known is the Oracle of Trophonius, a daemon or god said to dwell within a dark cavern. The rituals and encounters involving this oracle were said to be horrific, and the location was often referred to as the Cave of Nightmares. What was this frightening place, and is it still out there somewhere, waiting for someone courageous enough to uncover it?
