The Crystal skulls explained in Parksville talk

Mystery of 13 artifacts has stumped scientists for generations

Mystery fans won’t want to miss presentation about the mystery of the crystal skulls.

PARKSVILLE — One of the most mysterious artifacts ever discovered upon our planet are known as the crystal skulls.

Uncovered near or within ancient ruins in Mexico, Central and South America, as well as Europe and Asia, the quartz skulls have long stumped scientists as to not only why they were made, but in some cases, how.

That mystery is going to be revealed in Parksville however at a special presentation by Joshua Shapiro on  March 24.

Shapiro is the co-ordinator for the World Mystery Research Center, a non-profit center setup to research various world mysteries from both a scientific and paranormal perspective.

Starting in 2004, three crystal skull conferences were set up through the Heyyanka Foundation in Switzerland and two international festivals, the first in Holland in 2006 and a second one in Hungary in 2007.

Shapiro’s talk will detail his theories about the 13 mysterious skulls, as well as the legends associated with them.

The talk kicks off at 7 p.m. in the Garry Oaks room at the Parksville Community and Conference Centre. Admission is $20. For more information call 250-586-0073.
