Crystal Skull Inspirations

From the 1950s on, a considerable number of books began to appear regarding the Crystal Skull, not to mention the scientific publications that examined it in depth.

There are also many recent books and films inspired by the skull and its adventurous finder, F.A. Mitchell-Hedges.

The “Indiana Jones” saga just recently portrayed the story of an ancient crystal skull; the storyline for this movie is taken from the 13 skulls legend that he received from the mayan elders, when he found the skull.

The character of Indiana Jones also probably owes a lot to F.A. Mitchell-Hedges, our archetypal adventurer.

But Indiana Jones is not the only fictitious character to be indebted to the crystal skulls. We also find clear references to skulls in an episode of the popular serial “Stargate”, which indeed has the title “Crystal Skull”.

On a more scientific, less narrative note, on the other hand, the subject was explored in depth in a documentary produced by NBC in association with Sci-Fi Channel, entitled “Mystery of the Crystal Skulls”, in 2008.

The NBC crew filmed Bill Homann in Indiana, Sedona (Arizona), Belize and Honduras, gathering his personal memories together with valuable information on Mitchell-Hedges and the mysteries of the skull he found.
