Giant Human Graveyard Discovered Near Hartford, Connecticut
One Skeleton Measured Over 12 Foot Tall




Hartford, Connecticut Herald, November, 29 1911
     Evidences of a prehistoric race have been discovered by Hugh Yates, a prosperous land owner of this county, on his farm, a few miles west of here. While excavating beneath a high cliff on his place, Mr. Yates came upon an immense grave containing a human skeleton. The frame was of giant proportions. His curiosity aroused, Mr. Yates called in some neighbors, and, armed with picks, they burrowed their way into the side of the cliff and found an ancient sepulcher crowded with human skeletons, some of them larger than the one first found. One of the frames measured 12 feet. Along with the skeletons were found curiously wrought jewels and strange ornaments, while cooking vessels and musical instruments of queer design were unearthed in great profusion. The diggers are still at work and expect to make even more important finds
