In July 1947, something crashed in the desert near Roswell, New Mexico. What that object was, as well as what happened in the days following the crash, has been hotly disputed ever since. Did the United States government cover up the existence of an extraterrestrial UFO? Were alien bodies recovered from the crash site? Or was it all nothing more than the failed launch of a weather balloon? The “Roswell Incident” remains one of the great unsolved mysteries of the twentieth century, and a source of enduring controversy.
As part of the SCI FI Channel’s ongoing mission to separate science fiction from science fact, the network sponsored an unprecedented, comprehensive archeological investigation of the crash site. Utilizing modern-day forensic tools, scientists from the University of New Mexico, in partnership with SCI FI, set out to uncover physical evidence to determine once and for all what really happened in the desert near Roswell. Only some of the team’s discoveries were hinted at in SCI FI’s highest-rated-ever documentary, The Roswell Crash: Startling New Evidence. Many have speculated about the true extent of what the dig team uncovered. Until now.
The Roswell Dig Diaries presents to the public, for the very first time, the exclusive complete archeological report, including the final scientific conclusions of this landmark excavation and never-before-seen maps and photos of the crash site. This groundbreaking volume also takes you behind the scenes of the investigation with exclusive day-by-day personal journals and private company emails, written by everyone from the project leader, Dr. Bill Doleman, to Roswell Report authors Thomas J. Carey and Donald R. Schmitt, to SCI FI Channel executives, to the volunteer dig team members who helped make the investigation possible.
