Bones of Seth

At provided by Gary Gilligan. The ancient ruins of Holmul in Guatemala date back to the 7th and 8th centuries AD and are being investigated by archaeologists, intrigued by the dynasty of 'Snake Kings' and a temporary dominance until superseded by the city of Tikal dynasty. One of the bodies in a royal tomb is equipped with jade teeth.

At and ...where we are told ancient Egyptians in the Ramesside era collected fossils and for some reason associated them with the god Set. Some 3 tons of animal fossils, polished black by river sands, were dedicated to the god - and some of them were collected by archaeologists and brought to London (90 years ago). They have remained in crates, unopened or investigated, since the day they arrived. Apparently, the Egypt Exploration Society has been awarded to grant to open up the crates and examine the contents.

Why should fossils be venerated as part of the cult of Set? Well, one reason might be they include a lot of hippopotamus fossils and Set was worshipped in the form of that animal (among other manifestations). In northern climes Ursa Major is associated with the bear but in ancient Egypt this constellation was associated with the hippopotamus. Set was otherwise associated with a meteor stream (a defecating bull). Iron meteorites were regarded as the bones of Set.
