I wrote to a Linguistics specialist, Simon Ager and he said it looked Chinese to him. So I thought maybe it came from Chinese immigrants that came over between 1849 and 1882 because of the California Gold rush. But a quick study of their writing didn’t look like these symbols.
This is a picture of early Chinese writing:
I hadn't known about the symbols described from Roswell before...thanks for that. Has anyone tried to decode them denote a pattern or language of any sort? Did multiple witnesses report similar symbols?
