Unearthed Skeleton Unveils Secrets of the Past: A Glimpse into the Year 1980

“One of Three Centaur Burials Discovered in 1980 by the Archaeological Society of Argos Orestiko Eight Kilometers Northeast of Volos, Greece”

The plaque on ‘The Centaur of Volos,’ which was first exhibited in 1980 at the Madison Art Center in Wisconsin, reads: ‘One of three centaur burials discovered in 1980 by the Archaeological Society of Argos Orestiko, eight kilometers northeast of Volos, Greece.’ The human bones are real, as are the horse bones. But they were conjoined and staged by a guy named Bill Williams, according to research undertaken by forensic scientist Dorothy Stolze at the Strange Remains forensic anthropology website:

In 1980, Bill Williams, artist and professor of biology at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, constructed the skeletal remains of ‘The Centaur of Volos’ from real human bones and the bones of a Shetland pony. The human bones that Williams used were from an anatomical specimen, a human skeleton from India, in the biology department at his university. The human and pony bones were altered to give them an authentic appearance.
