Claim

In 1955, after two unsuccessful searches, Fernand Navarra found hand-hewn wood in a wall of ice at the 13,750 foot level. He retrieved a small sample of the wood, which is apparently very old.

In 1969, Navarra and others found more old wood at two different sites.

Responses

  1. The results from five different labs suggest that Navarra's wood samples date somewhere between 260 to 760 AD.
  2. It would have been nice if Navarra had taken photographs of the site where he retrieved the wood, rather than give vague and contradictory descriptions of the site.
  3. Navarra, himself, is suspect, as he had access to the site where the wood was found before he sent his workers to dig there, and that he was accused by at least three people for having obtained fraudulent wood.
