At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

MOON-EYED PEOPLE

The Cherokee, when first they came to the Appalachians, claimed they encountered the Moon-eyed People, a diminutive race that lived underground.  They were white with beards and had huge eyes, perhaps because of their subterranean lifestyle.  They were also said to be blind during certain phases of the moon.

They built a long wall in Georgia, over 800 feet.  This was because of a war with the Creeks, who at last defeated them.  In North Carolina they were said to have lived in mound-like structures.

Who these people were and whether they ever existed, we cannot tell.  But the wall is still there, in Fort Mountain, Georgia.
