Giant Human Skull Discovered in Georgia Burial Mound



New York Times  Febuary, 21 1893
Georgia's Big Mound
A Jawbone That Proves There Were Giants in Those Days
Fort Gaines, Ga., Feb. 20 - About twelve miles below Fort Gaines, on what is commonly known as the Mercier Place, is a mound which is said to be the largest known in the United States, and undoubtedly the work of the mound builders of former generations.  Whether its the largest or not, it is a very large one, and deserves the distinction of being the boss one of Georgia.
  Its base cover more than two acres, and running up at an angle of about 45 degrees, it stands about 100 feet high.  Large oak trees several feet in diameter cover the sides and stand as witness to the great age of the mound.  Many years ago a gentleman had a small sized well dug from the top down into the heart of the mound, and among other things found the jawbone of a man that would easily slip over the head of an ordinary man of this generation.  His explorations were very meager, and since then nothing like and systematic search has ever been made.
   Leading off from the mound in the direction of the creek are ditches, at the present time several feet deep. They were evidently used by the mound builders as secret ways of egress in case of attack. The pace is worthy of close and careful observation.

Iron Artifacts of the Ohio Mound Builders

Iron Artifacts of the Ohio Mound Builders

Burial mounds and earthworks were once concentrated in Cincinnati, Ohio

In graduating a street in Cincinnati, there was found, twenty-five
feet below the surface of the earth, a small horse shoe, in which were
several nails. It is said to present the appearance of such erosion as
would result from the oxidation of some centuries. It was smaller than
would be required for a common mule.[12]

Many are the instances of pieces of timber found, various depths below
the surface of the earth, with the marks of the axe palpably visible
on them.[13] A sword too, said to have been enclosed in the wood of
the roots of a tree not less than five hundred years old, is preserved
in Ohio as a curiosity. Many other instances might, if necessary, be
adduced to prove, that implements of iron were in use in this country,
prior to its occupation by the whites. Now if a people once have the
use of that metal, it is far from probable that it will ever after be
lost to them: the essential purposes to which it may be applied, would
preserve it to them. The Indians however, 'till taught by the
Europeans, had no knowledge of it.

Chief Justice Discovers 12 Foot Human Skeletons in Pennsylvania

Chief Justice Discovers 12 Foot Human Skeletons in Pennsylvania




The New York Times, August 10, 1880
Two Very Tall Skeletons
  The following was copied verbatim from a note made in his pocket almanac by the late Judge Atlee: "On the 24th of May 1798, being at Hanover (York County, Penn.,) in the company with Chief - Justice McKean, Judge Bryan, Mr. Beard and others on our way to Franklin, and take-in view of the town, in the company with Mr. McAllister, and several other respectable inhabitants, we went to Mr. Neese's tan-yard, where we were shown a place near the currying house from whence (in digging to sink a tan vat) some years ago were taken two skeletons of human bodies. They lay close beside each other, and measured 11 feet 8inches in length; the bones were entire, but on being taken up and exposed to the air they presently crumbled and fell to pieces.  Mr. McAllister and some others and they mentioned that many others had seen them, and Mr. McAllister, who is a tall man, about 6 feet 4 inches high, mentioned that the principal bone of the leg of one of them, being placed by the side of his leg, reached from his ankle a considerable way up his thigh, pointing a small distance below the hip bone."

8 Foot Ancient Giant Human Skeleton Discovered in Cayuga County, New York


Weekly News and Democrat, Auburn New York,  May 30, 1878
A GIANT SKELETON DISCOVERED IN CAYUGA COUNTY, NEW YORK
      A Giant Skeleton - John White, while excavating with a party in Scipio, on Tuesday, exhumed the bows of two Indiana.  The location of the find is on the farm of E. P. Hoskins, Indian Fields Road. The skeletons when first discovered were entire, and in a sitting position.
    Much care was taken in digging around them, to preserve them intact; but they fell apart in removal.  One of the skeletons was that of a giant, measuring three feet across the hips and eight feet in stature. Its lower jaw bone was of immense proportion and would easily span the head of any of the parties engaged in the discovery.  A number of trinkets usually accompanying the Indian remains were found with the bones

Ancient Giant Race is Uncovered by Heavy Rains in Arizona

Ancient Giant Race is Uncovered by Heavy Rains in Arizona





The Miami News , Nov 25, 1921 
Burial Place of Giants is Uncovered by Rains
    Douglas, Arizona, Nov. 25 - Recent heavy rains in the vicinity of Reddington, near here, have uncovered the burial grounds of a race of giant people who are thought to have lived thousands of years ago, according to August Enley, a miner, who has been employed in the Reddington district.
   Ealey described parts of skeletons recovered from the cemetery and declared that the stature of the race must have been twice that of the average man today.  One skull showed a thickness of about one inch.  Ali said, and was in a state of perfect preservation.  Pieces of pottery, ear-rings, remains of charcoal fires and other evidences uncovered by the rains has led Ealey to report the discovery to the state university with the hope that a more intimate investigation would be made of the burial ground.

Ancient Human Giants Graveyard Discovered in Alaska

Ancient Giants Graveyard Discovered in Alaska




The San Francisco Call, November 18, 1900
SKELETONS OF GIANTS IN ALASKA
Ancient Cemetery Uncovered in the Atlin Gold District.
Special Dispatch to The Call. VANCOUVER, Nov. 17.—James L. Perkinson, an American miner of Atlin, arrived here today with news of the finding of a number of skeletons in an ancient Indian cemetery in the north, which is of startling scientific interest.
Perkinson is one of the owners of the Yellow Jacket, a rich claim . Which Is supposed to be the fountainhead of Pine, the principal creek in Atlin district. Two weeks ago the first excavations were being made for a new tunnel and what appears to have been an old Indian
burying ground was opened up.
Five skeletons, nearly complete, were exhumed and each is the set of bones that belonged to a giant of prehistoric times. One of the skeletons measure over seven feet in length, so that the man must have been considerably over that height. Then there were two others of within an inch of seven feet and the remaining two were more than six feet in length and the men were of gigantic frame.
The altitude is high and the ground was half frozen, s0 that the bones were preserved almost intact Perkinson says that .he expects if they had kept on digging they would have found many more, as these were lying comparatively close together.
The bones of the fingers and toes had crumbled away, but the linger of one skeletal hand was sufficiently  strong to hold a ring of what appears to be lead or some similar base, metal. The skeletons were unusually well formed, but one unique feature was that the arms were several inches shorter than ordinarily appears, while the size of the bones of the forearm was enormous in comparison to the usual models, Beside two of the skeletons were spears, rudely shaped with a soft metal and pointed with sharp stones. The spears were only about three feet long and five’ Inches thick at the top. tapering at the lower end. The top contained a socket into which a wooden shaft was probably placed, in order to wield the big piece of metal. Other pieces of stone and carved metal were found.. The general physical appearance of the  skeletons, according to the cursory examination of the miners, was similar to that of the-Indians of the present day. They were certainly of the flathead type of tribes. That the burying place Is of.ancient origin’ Is evidenced by the fact that the Indians say none of their tribesmen have lived within fifty miles of this place as far back as stories have been handed down. There are several mounds, presumably made by the Indian’s in the vicinity of the new mine tunnel ,now being extende

8 Foot Giant Humans Uncovered on Virginia's Shenandoah River

8 Foot Giant Humans Uncovered on Virginia's Shenandoah River


Spoke burials or skeletons situated around a central figure is most prominent in the Ohio Valley burial mounds.  The giant skeletons found in Virginia are a likely extension of the Ohio Valley giants


THE NEW YORK TIMES, JUNE 8, 1924
INDIAN GRAVES YIELD
SHENANDOAH RELICS
      Flood waters near Berryville. Virginia unearth a 7 1/2 foot skeleton of an ancient human. Of course, when this human, to whom the bones belonged, was alive in the flesh he would have been more like 7 feet. 9 inches tall. Also, this skeleton like some others found in the same area had generally 2 to 3 times the mass as that of contemporary humans. The grave where the skeleton was found was centrally located amongst other graves, perhaps, testifying to the important position in society that the owner of these bones once held.
     Another find, much larger than the first, was on the farm of Felix McManus, near Berryville,Virginia This is supposed to be an old Indian cemetery, and the unearthing was done by floods when the Shenandoah River was unusually high. Practically the same sort of relics were found, including a tomahawk. The graves were grouped around a center one in which the skeleton measured seven and one-half feet.
