Giant Human Nephilim Mummified Remains Uncovered in California

Giant Human Nephilim Mummified Remains Uncovered in California

The World, October 7, 1895


Nine Feet High and Probably a California Indian

Measurement Well Authenticated

The corpse of the biggest man that ever lived has been dug up near San Diego California. At all events, there is no satisfactory read in the ancient or modern history of any human being nearly so tall. The mummy-for in such a condition the remains were found is that of a person would have been about nine feet high in life. This makes allowances for the shrinkage, which may be pretty closely calculated.

As to the accuracy of the estimate, there can no question, as the cadaver has been carefully inspected and measured by Prof. Thomas Wilson, Curator of the Department of Prehistoric Anthropology in the Smithsonian Institution, and by other scientists. The tapeline even now registers the length from heel to top of the head at eight feet four inches.

The mummy is that of an Indian and is almost certainly prehistoric, though its age cannot be determined with any sort of accuracy. Historical records of the part of California where it was found go back for at least 250 years, and they make no mention of any man of gigantic stature. How much older the body may be must be left open to conjecture. Its preservation, its preservation is no matter of surprise, in that arid region, the atmospheric conditions are such that a corpse buried in the dry season might very well become perfectly desiccated before the arrival of the rains, and thus be rendered permanently proof against decay.

The body was found in a cave by a party of prospectors. Over the head are the remnants of a leather hood. The man was well advanced in years.

It has been stated that the man must have surpassed in height any giant of whom there is a historical record. This is unquestionably true so far as the last two centuries are concerned, and accounts of older dates are not well authenticated. Indeed they grow more and more apocryphal as distant in time increases.

This is the actual photo that was used in the newspaper article.  Note how the mummy's arms are folded and how the man on the right is mimicking the pose.  Unfortunately, the article mentions the Smithsonian which means the giant has been lost or destroyed.  
It is also important to note the symmetry of the mummy, whose gigantic size does not appear to be the result of Gigantism or any other of the physical dysfunction that archaeologists immediately hypothesize.
