DragonKing Dark: Who were the Olmecs?

DragonKing Dark takes another journey back in time to study ancient civilizations in our continuing effort to make sense out of the history of mankind, a timeline which seems to have a lot of pieces that don't fit.

One of the great Central American cultures surrounded by a lot of mystery are the Olmecs. They left us several giant carved heads. We presume these heads represent the Olmecs -- but why are they all wearing helmets? Have some of these same heads also been found in Africa?

We try to cut through the information and misinformation surrounding the mysterious Olmec culture and attempt to determine where they fit into our story of human civilization.
