China's Roswell
History Channel, 6th August, 2006
UFO Files: China's Roswell explores
one of the most controversial
aspects of ufology â?? the Dropa
Stones. Yet again using the Roswell
analogy, the programme attempts to
link the two, very different stories
because both contain crashed
spacecraft, alien survivors and
governmental cover-ups, albeit
thousands of years apart (except for
the government cover-up).
The story of the discovery of the
Dropa Stones begins in 1938, when
a Chinese professor of archaeology,
Chi Pu Tei, sets off to explore a cave
system in the mountains of Bayan-
Kara-Ula, close to the China-Tibet
border. The story goes that in these
caves, Chi found rows of small
skeletons with large heads. Nearby
there were 716 stone discs, each
with strange markings and spiral
grooves. The stones were taken
back to Beijing and were not seen
again until the late 1950s.
Dr Tsum Um Nui found the discs and
began examining them, finding that
the markings were an unknown form
of hieroglyphic writing. Somehow he
deciphered the symbols and claimed
they told of a race of aliens, known
as the Dropa, which crash-landed on
Earth 12,000 years previously.
Obviously, the professor had trouble
publishing his findings. He became
so frustrated that he emigrated to
The first the outside world heard of
the Dropa was in the early Sixties,
when a Russian magazine called
Sputnik released the story. Soon
afterwards, a German publication,
Vegetarian Universe, also ran the
story. With the Chinese Cultural
revolution of the early 1960s, travel
to the country became difficult and
the tale of the Dropa Stones was
soon forgotten to many. The location
of the caves in which they were
found has also been lost.

What was discovered by researchers
was that there was an oral tradition
from the Bayan-Kara-Ula region of
â??small peopleâ?? that crash-landed from
the sky. The legends say that the
Dropa came from the star, Sirius.
This coincides with many other
myths from around the world, such
as the Egyptian Isis and the Dogon
story of the Nommu.
Matthew Hurley, author of The Alien
Chronicles and founder of the
UFOartwork .com website, claimed
that all through history, ancient man
may have been leaving behind
representations of alien beings in the
forms of cave paintings, pictographs,
sculptures and other forms of art. If
aliens landed and interacted with our
ancestors, it is entirely possible that
they may have ended up being
worshipped as gods.
Matthew admits that there are three
explanations for what is often
depicted in ancient pictograms:
The depictions are real and
do record ancient manâ??s
interactions with alien beings
and their craft.
The drawings come from the
ancient artistsâ?? imaginations
They represent ritual
ceremonies with priests or
shaman wearing masks or
ritual headgear.
Only two photographs of the Dropa
Stones exist. Matthew believes that
what was photographed were either
hoaxes created to perpetuate the
story or jade Bi discs. The Dropa
Stones closely resemble the well-
known Bi discs, which were buried
with the well-to-do ancient Chinese.

What of the strange hieroglyphics?
If the writing on the discs is 12,000
years old, as alleged by Dr Tsum Um
Nui, then how did he translate them?
Doing so would have been a greater
achievement than Champollionâ??s
deciphering of the Egyptian Rosetta
Stone. He took years translating the
hieroglyphics, despite two other
languages, Demotic and Greek,
being present on the stone to help
him. How could Tsum Um Nui have
translated the markings on the Dropa
Stones without a similar frame of
Michael Shermer of Skeptic
Magazine agrees that Tsum Um Nui
could not know the difference
between an ancient human language
and an ancient alien one. As far as
he is concerned it means nothing
and is just a story.
In the late 1960s, it is said that
Russian scientists were allowed to
examine the Dropa Stones. They
found that they had peculiar
properties. Thinking that the spiral
grooves on the discsâ?? surfaces
resembled the grooves on a long-
playing record, the Soviets placed
them on a turntable and began
rotating. They found that when this
was done, a distinct electrical charge
was detected. The conclusion was
that the discs had once been inside
a very strong, electrical field.
It has been suggested that the spiral
grooves were a form of vibrational
message, designed to be transmitted
back home, much like the squat alien
in Steven Spielbergâ??s movie, ET: The
Peter Lu, of Harvard University,
explained that spiral forms are very
common in nature, from sea shells to
plants to hurricanes. The same
applies to ancient man. Spiral
patterns have been found at ancient
sites in Ireland, China and Egypt. In
fact, they are found all over the
The way the story of the Dropa
Stones has grown has been
compared with how the legend of the
Roswell Incident developed. Michael
Shermer took up the story at this
point. Largely unheard of for
decades, the Roswell story began to
gain momentum after a television
documentary was released in 1978.
Afterwards, books and magazine
articles appeared, followed by films
and more documentaries, and then
the eyewitnesses began to come out
of the woodwork. That, he said, was
when the Roswell Incident really
Sensationalist news stories in
publications such as The National
Enquirer seriously damaged any
credibility the Roswell Incident. The
same applied to the Dropa Stones.
The early articles in Sputnik,
Vegetarian Universe and a Belgian
UFO magazine had a
sensationalistic style and
immediately dissuaded serious
research into the mystery.
Another way in which the Roswell
Incident and the Dropa story
converge is in the rumours of
government conspiracy. It has been
said that both the US and Chinese
governments have recovered alien
technology and are covering it up.
The region of the Bayan-Kara-Ula
Mountains is vast and not easily
accessible. The mountains are up to
20,000 feet in height and only one
major road traverses the area. The
local people are mostly farmers and
herdsmen, living simple lives with
little contact with the outside world.
Legends abound in the region of a
tribe of dwarves.
German researcher, Hartwig
Hausdorf (above), believes that a
tribe of human-alien hybrids may live
in a Chinese village called Huilong.
He suggests that survivors from the
crash 12,000 years ago interbred
with local people and their
descendants today live in Huilong.
The Chinese government claimed
that the dwarfism in Huilong was
caused by contaminants in the
water. The Chinese Academy of
Science published a report that
confirmed this and measures were
taken to clean up the pollution.
According to media reports in 1997,
no new cases of dwarfism have
The Dropa waters were further
muddied in 1978, when a book
entitled, Sungods in Exile: Secrets of
the Dzopa of Tibet, was released. It
was alleged to have been written by
a British explorer called Karyl Robin-
Evans and edited by David Agamon.
According to the book, Dr Robin-
Evans travelled to the Dropa region
in 1947 and encountered a tribe of
dwarves. They told him that their
ancestors came from the stars.

It came to light years later that David
Agamon had fabricated the story
himself and that Karyl Robin-Evans
never existed. He revealed in
Fortean Times that the book,
Sungods in Exile, was a hoax.
UFO researcher, David Sereda,
believes that footage from NASA
cameras in orbit have captured alien
spacecraft that resemble the Dropa
Stones. He claimed that the famous
â??tetherâ?? footage from STS-75 reveals
these spacecraft. Professor of
Astronomy, Stephen Walton, from
California State University, stated
that the objects in the footage are
nothing but small pieces of debris
from the broken tether. Their shape
is nothing but an optical effect from
the camera itself. The objects are so
far out of focus that they appear as
round â??discsâ??. Sereda is not
convinced and maintained that the
objects cannot be simple debris.
In 1974, an Austrian engineer called
Ernst Wegerer saw two discs in a
case in a museum in Xian. He asked
the curator what they were and she
told him that they were â??cultural
relicsâ??. Wegerer took two
photographs of the discs and these
are the only solid evidence for their
existence that remains.
Unfortunately, the Polaroid images
do not show any of the grooves or
hieroglyphic markings that were
reported on the Dropa Stones.
In 1994, Hartwig Hausdorf visited
China and found the museum where
Wegerer had taken his photos. He
asked the curator about the discs
and he was told that only a few days
after the Austrian had taken his
photographs, the then curator and
the discs disappeared. Hausdorf
believed that a cover-up was
Michael Shermer claimed that
conspiracy theories are the easy way
out for people who have no proof for
their own stories.
The mystery is compounded
because all of the key players in the
story cannot be found. The paper
supposedly written by Dr Tsum Um

Nui also cannot be located. The
discs themselves are nowhere to be
Hausdorf believed that the stones
were lost or destroyed during the
Chinese Cultural Revolution, when
Mao rose to power. In those
turbulent days, many of Chinaâ??s
irreplaceable artworks were
destroyed by the revolutionaries in
their effort to eradicate the excesses
and decadence of Chinaâ??s imperial
After Mao died, the Communists still
held power (and still do), but
eventually, China opened up a little
and western influences began to
trickle into the country. UFO stories
began to emerge and groups were
formed all over the nation.
Nowadays, more UFOs are reported
in China than anywhere else in the
world. The most popular UFO-based
magazine sells over 400,000 copies
and there are more UFO clubs than
any other country.
But what of the story of the Dropa
Stones? Is it Chinaâ??s Roswell? UFO
researcher, Richard Dolan, is of the
opinion that the story is not true and
is, basically, a hoax. Michael
Shermer stated that it is a nonsense,
mythical story. Hartwig Hausdorf
thinks that there is some truth to the
Perhaps the only way to know one
way or the other would be to locate
the caves in the Bayan-Kara-Ula
Mountains and see if those tiny
skeletons or, perhaps, more stone
discs could be found.
UFO Files: Chinaâ??s Roswell was
another excellent programme in the
series. It was interesting, informative
and allowed all viewpoints to be
heard. Did the Dropa Stones exist?
Who knows? The photos by Ernst
Wegerer donâ??t particularly match the
descriptions given. To me, they look
more like the other Bi discs we have
seen. The connection with NASA
footage is also spurious, in my
opinion, and I agree with Professor

Walton when he says that the â??UFOsâ??
are nothing more than optical effects.
Despite all the negativity, however,
we must remember that legends
from the Bayan-Kara-Ula region do
speak of tribes of small, large-
headed, long before modern
pollution was blamed for any
deformities. That is, if we are to
believe that the legend is true.
Perhaps it is time a modern
expedition to the region was
undertaken to find out the truth
behind the Dropa Stones.
