It took me a while to even see what was supposed to be the corn.  So, yes,
I do think there are other ways to explain this decorative element.  (To
me it looks like trumpety flowers inserted in each other.  I've never seen
"corn" kernels on husks before.

A Gillette razor blade was found at the throat of a mummy.  I do not
believe that time travel accounts for it.  It does call into question
dating by strata as an absolute.  I'd have to know much more about the
other finds to make a judgment.
