BELL SHAPED MYSTERY (or not)...
In 1852, a metallic bellshaped artifact was excavated in Dorchester, MA. This artifact has never been explained, nor has it been seen since. I live in Dorchester and you would think the lore would be significant. It was blasted out of the rock at MEETING HOUSE HILL, and yet, NO ONE mentions it. I didn't know about it until I was twelve and reading TIME LIFE books MYSTERIES OF THE UNKNOWN as part of my summer reading. There it was, the bell shaped anomaly that had eluded me ever since. I wonder where it is now and whether the suppresion of such a significant item is even worth it.
For all I know it could have been a candle holder.
