If you look up information on the Roswell crash in 1947 you'll find info on some small mettalic bars nicknamed 'I bars'. Now what's special about these is that they were indestructable! They were incredibly light and and strange writing on them and some reports claim they had a strange glow.

The material that the bars are made of is/was unknown. I just wonder if anyone knows what they could be used for or what they are made of.

I-bars, I-beams. I couldn't possibly tell you what they are made from other than some type of alloy. As for there use, I believe they are said to be retrieved from the alleged UFO wreckage at Roswell. The I-beams/bars were likely the frame of the craft.

They were thought to be structural beams...the heiroglyphs were described by Jesse Marcel, Jr. (the intelligence officer's son) who claimed to have handled some of the debris. Reportedly, they could not break, bend, or melt these bars. (note: this is different from the "tin foil" like material that could bend, ball up, etc. and then snap back to shape.)

The somewhat laughable military explaination was that they were balsa wood and that the heiroglyphs were from the tape used in this top secret balloon project Mogul, and that the tape had little purple designs that were mistaken (???) for heiroglyphs...

Anyone know what happened to these bars? It would be fascinating to get at look at the heiroglyphs on them.

Gazrok, do you know if they resembled Egyptian heiroglyphs or were they totally different?

There are no remaining I beams, so there is no proof but a few witnesses that probably get paided hansomly for there storys.

i have a video clip of the supposed crash material showing the I bars. There's also these slabs of metal that have hands inprinting on them, the hands had six fingers. I got it off of kazaa a long time ago. Anyone ever seen this video?

Ok, so maybe it isn't a video clip, it's 31Mb and 2min and 52sec long

sounds like "TAKEN" to me, never heard of these bars connected to the real roswell. any sources predating the production-time of TAKEN?

The heiroglyphs on the I-beams that are on this video I have do not look egyptian. There is one that is a V/ symbol and some others that resemble a planet with a ring around it. This one V/ kind of looks greek but the others don't resemble anything I have seen.

The 'I' beams are not a product of the series "Taken".


I'm not sure when "Taken" was made, but I know I saw Jesse Marcell Jr. had made a reproduction of one of the "I beams" back in 92 or so. No later than 94.


Taken's newer than that, I believe.

The hieroglyphs reported from the Roswell crash site were nothing like the Egyptian ones. A few witnesses actually mentioned this.

It was Jesse marcel who talked about them. he said he refered to them as hieroglyphs because thats what they reminded him of, but unlike the Egyptian hieroglyphs, the figures on the I-Beams did not have animal figures, or eye shaped ones. Marcel used the term hieroglyphs because they figures were strange looking shapes that made no sense.

So no, they did not look like the Egyptian kind.

feyd Rautha, if you actually read anything about Roswell, then youd know that the I-beams were very much mentioned and discussed in the first Roswell book, The Roswell Incident, published in 1980, right after Moore and berlitz and friedman had interviewed the witnesses. Thus, they did not come from the series Taken. Theres even mention of them even earlier on.

I would suggest you actually do some real study into the Roswell incident and UFOs in general before you make any more statements like that.

As both Skadi and I mentioned, it was Marcel who first spoke of the I-Beams...and it was way prior to "Taken"...(by a couple decades)
His father was the Intelligence Officer who first toured the debris field with Brazel, the rancher...and (as he would later state) ordered to be photographed with balloon wreckage as part of the cover story. (The same series of photos, I should mention, that we get the infamous "Ramey Memo" from).

It should be remembered that Marcel (Jr., the one describing the I beams) was a child at the time of seeing them, and he stated (as Skadi mentioned), that heiroglyphs were the only words he could think of to describe them...they didn't resemble any known language to him.

I just wondered if anyone knows of what has become of them now and if there has been any look in recreating them or just the material they are made of

The last reference to them that I've seen is from a General (mentioned in my Roswell threads) who later saw them at the Pentagon, and described them (in a signed affadavit).

Unfortunately, and descriptions of the glyphs themselves is probably clouded somewhat by the years and memory.

Here's pics though, showing Marcel Jr.'s recall of them (Officer Marcel's son, shown the debris while a child).

Those symbols remind me of numbers but i can't remember from where i saw something similar. I'll get back if i find anything.

Remind me almost of Sumerian cunioform (sp?) but I'm no linguistics or anthropology expert (that's Byrd's territory)...

Howdy folks...

These may be the pics ( don't remember where I got them though ), that show the I beam, and the hand prints...

Well they certainly help. If they are real we know what the "hieroglyphs" look like now.

Those pics are from the Fox special a while back and were props, not genuine debris or anything.

The glyphs on the beam in the photo are the producers' ideas, not a faithful depiction from witnesses (and appear to be based on old Greek symbols, not witness accounts).

I'm still struggling to find any evidence of what the glyphs looked liked.
