Northern Iraq, 1982. World-renowned archaeologist Hans Weigner led a team deep into a newly discovered temple, dated at around 320,000 years BC. Inside the temple labyrinth, Weigner and his team found a single relic - the skull of an unknown entity, believed to be extraterrestrial in nature. On the return journey to Baghdad, Weigner and his team fell victim to a "road accident". The skull was transferred to the care of the United States Air Force and is now housed in an undisclosed location somewhere in Ohio.
