Only a few crystal skulls have been expertly authenticated as ancient. Many have been carved within the last five years. Presently, the accepted authentication by which a carved skull can be termed ancient is through a complicated process of casting a mold of the skull and placing it under an electron microscope to examine the minute markings left by the carver. These markings are the clues by which the age of the carving is determined. The telltale pattern of the marking will verify what method was used to carve and polish the skull; thereby, the antiquity expert is able to confirm the age based on methods used on other known works which range from the ancient to the very contemporary. By comparing these various methods with those of the crystal skull, a time-line is developed which will place the skull along that line.

Its also known that the Russians found a bunch of dead Tibetans in Nazi Headquarters in Berlin.
What was the legend of the Untersberg mountain, at which Hitler spent many hours gazing from his study in the Berghof? Historians guess that, like King Arthur, Frederick Barbarossa is buried there, waiting for a call to arise from the dead to come to his country's aid in its hour of need. That is not the legend of the Untersberg, though.
In 1220, Templar Komtur Hubertus Koch, returning with a small party from the Crusades, passed through Mesopotamia, and near the old city of Nineveh in modern Iraq, received an apparition of the goddess Isais (first child of goddess Isis and god Set). She told him to withdraw to the Untersberg mountain, build a house there and await her next apparition. Whether that is true or not, in 1221, Koch erected his first Komturei at the foot of Ettenberg near Markt Schellenberg. A second, larger structure followed. It is believed that over the next few years, underground galleries were excavated into various areas of the Untersberg, and in one of them a temple to Isais was built.
A second apparition occurred in 1226 and were repeated on occasions until 1238. During this period the Templars received "Die Isais Offenbarung", a series of prophesies (recently published) and information concerning the Holy Grail. The Templars at Jerusalem had knowledge of these visitations, over which the Church drew a veil of silence. What follows is only tradition, but may be of interest. It is the German tradition that the Templars were ordered to form a secret scientific sect in southern Germany, Austria and northern Italy to be known as "Die Herren vom Schwarzen Stein" - The Lords of the Black Stone - or DHvSS for short, and this is said to be the true, hidden meaning of SS. The Holy Grail ("Ghral" is holy stone, Persian-Arabic) was said to be a black-violet crystal, half quartz, half amethyst, through which Higher Powers communicated with humanity. It was given into the safe-keeping of the Cathars, and smuggled out of the last stronghold at Montsegur, France, and hidden, by four Cathar women on the night of 14 March 1244. There is a Cathar legend that 700 years after the destruction of the Cathar religion the Holy Grail would be returned to its rightful holders, DHvSS, or the SS?
It may be of interest to note in this connection that the Tea House designed by Hitler and built atop the Mooslahnerkopf at Obersalzberg, the stone pavillion still standing today, bears a striking resemblance to Montsegur when viewed at certain angles from the foot of the great rocky outcrop. Whether this was a coincidence remains in the mind of the beholder.
The Heiling Dwarves.
The cavern was once inhabited by small dwarves who were to have been ruled by a prince, an otherwise unknown old man by the name of Heiling.
On one occasion in times gone by a woman born in Taschwitz went out of the village on the evening before Peter's and Paul's Day, making her way into the forest in search of berries. Night overtook her and, seeing a cozy house standing next to the cliff, she opened the door and went inside.
There she saw an old man sitting at a table, writing busily and anxiously. The woman asked for a place to stay and was willingly taken in. Aside from the old man there was no other living thing in the whole room. However, there was a great rumbling in all corners of it.
At this, the woman was dreadfully afraid and she asked the old man: "Where am I then, actually?" The old man replied: "That his name was Heiling; soon, however, would travel away, for 'two-thirds of my dwarves have already fled away.'" This remarkable answer disconcerted the woman even more and she would have continued her questioning had he not bidden her to remain silent, adding: "Had you not come precisely during this unique hour you never would have found shelter for the night."
The frightened woman crawled obediently into a corner and slept sweetly.
When she awoke in the morning, she was lying at the very base of the cliff and thought herself to have dreamed, for there was no building to be seen.
Happy and relieved that no ill had befallen her in that dangerous place, she hurried back to her village.
However, everything there was all so changed and strange. In the village the houses were new and differently built, she did not know the people who confronted her nor did they recognize her.
With much effort she finally found the hut where she had lived, and even it was built better. Only the same oak tree planted there by her grandfather still lent it shade. However, as she attempted to walk inside she was shown again to the door as a stranger.
She ran about the village, crying in great distress. The people thought she was out of her mind. They brought her to the authorities who heard her case and made investigation into it.
Behold, they found in the community annals and church records that precisely a hundred years ago on this very day a woman of her name had gone into the forest in search of berries, never having come home and never having been found. It became clear that she had slept for a full hundred years at the cliff and, during that time, had not grown any older.

Not to make this thread any weirder but . . .
What else are associated with gnomes?
Which contain '___'.
Which users claim they make contact with "elfish entities."
“All spiritual disciplines describe quite psychedelic accounts of the transformative experiences, whose attainment motivate their practice. Blinding white light, encounters with demonic and angelic entities, ecstatic emotions, timelessness, heavenly sounds, feelings of having died and being reborn, contacting a powerful and loving presence underlying all of reality—these experiences cut across all denominations. They also are characteristic of fully psychedelic '___' experience. How might meditation evoke the pineal '___' experience?”
Endogenous '___' is described as the source of visionary Light in transpersonal experiences. Its primary source, the pineal, has traditionally been referred to as the Third Eye. Curiously, this gland is light sensitive and actually has a lens, cornea, and retina.
The pineal gland begins to harden with calcified tissue starting at adolescence. These strange calcified deposits between 3-5 mm are called “brain sand”. There are asymmetrical crystals in the pineal gland that are ‘piezo-electric' - that is, they send out electronic voltage creating EM waves. Whenever a person is exposed to an EMF (electro-magnetic field) such as that of the earth the gland vibrates, sending out EM signals to the rest of the body. When the pineal gland is stimulated geomagnetically it produces alkaloids similar to plant psychedelics. Any strong change in the earth's EMF will produce a rush of psychedelics in our bodies enabling us to be more psychically active in shamanic states (earth/ land receptive). The pineal gland is effected by coherent EM fields and it changes its hormone production when exposed to EM at low levels.

I'll have to visit some of my relatives and acquaintances who lived and fought during the WWII era and ask them about the Untersberg and Obersalzberg, specifically.
My grandfather, especially, has hiked on and all over the Untersberg all of his life (he's over 80 now, but mentally still pretty acute, his last hiking trip up it was at about 70), so he may have at least some stories to tell, even if he hasn't witnessed anything out of the ordinary.
My great-aunt lives in Grossgmain and is a refreshingly openminded lady, even at ~70. She always has old stories to tell, as well.
So when I next go back there, I'll try to visit them as well as going to Königssee to take some photos there and get a "feel" of the place.

8. Alien manifestations. We go back to the past century (19th), near Malcata, specifically a kilometre from the village on the banks of the Coa River and near the Chapel of St. Domingos, near the river Fogueira, to see the unusual activities of various beings of short stature that the people called 'moirinhos' jumping near the water or throwing themselves from a small wall to the ground and vice versa. The beings were of small size, according to local reports, a 'charm' and their presence there was sign of wealth underground. Local people said said that there "was gold". An inhabitant, more enthusiastic, still tried to capture one of the "moirinhos" to be christened, but none of them let himself be caught. People from Malcata said that those strange "boys" used to appear on the morning of S. John's day or end of the year.
The other case makes us enter the field of licantropy, if we give account of frequent allusions to "werewolves". The great-great-granddad of Mr. Fernando Nabais Marques was one of those who experienced an encounter of the third degree when, in his role as blacksmith, went on a day of the last (19th) century to Meimão. At night, at the top of a slope, heard a noise and witnessed the run of an animal-like being. Scared, he threw himself to the ground and lifting the head saw a man dressed in a white shirt. The metamorphosis can be said that was almost immediate. No one can say that everything has finished in the region of Malcata, because there were still about nine years ago in Espiguinha our already known pastor Manuel Augusto Santos felt like a "horse running". In the morning he noticed a long trail in the land, along with footprints absolutely unknown that he could not attribute to the animals of the region. Marked were five fingers as a hand, with small nails, making the witness conclude that the animal was an unknown quadruped. One last detail, reported by people still alive, shows us that the type of sound caused by the alleged werewolf was like a "prolonged cow mooing", a somewhat random effect as we shall see below. In conclusion, the explanation of this series, it appears that in 44% of the cases psychophysical effects, such as paralysis, loss of the senses, nervousness and agitation of the animals were noticed. Specifically, the "blast", "wind" or "howling" cause panic and turmoil in dogs, the "shadow" or black globe, detention or paralysis, while the "good hour" produces a siren like sound or howl and the alleged "werewolf" a prolonged cow-like mooing.
