"Of all the unexplained mysteries in North Texas there are three that clearly top the list—The Aurora Spaceman, the Ancient Stone Wall in Rockwall, and the most unbelievable, the Golden Pegasus Armor. Discovered in 1994 northwest of Fort Worth, a subterranean tomb containing prehistoric artifacts is discovered by four teenagers who stumbled upon it after following their dog down a narrow entrance into a cavern. The 15,000- to 17,000-year-old artifacts, consisting mostly of arms and armor, are among the finest examples of art from the Upper Auroralithic period, the highlight of which is the complete set of Golden Pegasus Horse and Rider Armor that was fitted for a child. This has led researchers to assume the tomb likely belonged to a child, and even more remarkable that much of the armor was made by the child. There is ongoing debate as to whether this was common armor fabricating practice or if this was a crude youthful attempt at replicating popular designs of the era."
