Lost City of Giants Discovered in Toronto, Canada

Lost City of Giants Discovered in Toronto, Canada



West Coast Times, Issue 1924, November 29, 1871,
"LOST CITY OF GIANTS DISCOVERED IN TORONTO, CANADA
 Cayuga, August 21st. On Wednesday last, Rev. Nathaniel Wardel, Messrs Orin Wardell, of Toronto and Daniel Fredenburg, were digging on the farm of the later gentleman, which is on the banks of the Grand River, in the township of Cayuga. When they got to five or six feet below the surface a strange sight met them. Piled in layers, one upon top of the other, some two hundred skeletons of human beings nearly perfect-around the neck of each one being a string of beads. There were also deposited in this pit a number of axes and skinners made of stone. In the jaws of several of the skeletons were large stone pipes, one of which Mr. O. Wardell took with him to Toronto a day or two after this Golgotha was unearthed. These skeletons are those of men of gigantic stature, some of them measuring nine feet, very few of them being less than seven feet. Some of the thigh bones were found to be at least half a foot longer than those at present known and one of the skulls being examined completely covered the head of an ordinary person. These skeletons are supposed to belong to a race of people anterior to the Indians. The pit and its ghastly occupants are now open to the view of any who may wish to make a visit there.
     There is not the slightest doubt that the remains of a lost city are on this farm. At various times within the past years the remains of mud-homes with their chimneys had been found; and there are dozens of pits of a similar kind to that just unearthed, though much smaller, in the place which has been discovered before, though the fact has not been made public hitherto. The remains of a blacksmith shop, containing two tons of charcoal and various implements, were turned up a few months ago. The farm, which consists of 150 acres, has been cultivated for nearly a century and was covered with a thick growth of pine, so that it must have been ages since the remains were deposited there. The skulls of the skeletons are of enormous size and are of all manner of shapes. The teeth of most of them are still in an almost perfect state of preservation, though they soon fall out when exposed to air. Some large shells, supposed to have been used for holding water, which were also found in the pit, were almost petrified.
     A good deal of excitement exists in the neighborhood and many visitors call at the farm daily. The skulls and bones of the giants are fast disappearing, being taken away by curiosity hunters. It is the intention of Mr. Fredenburgh to cover the pit very soon. From the appearance of the skulls it would seem that their possessor died a violent death, as many of them were broken and dented. The beads are all of stone and of all sizes and shapes. The pipes are not unlike in shape the cutty pipes and several of them are engraved with dog's heads. They have not lost their virtue of smoking. Some people profess to believe that the locality Fredenburgh Farm was formerly an Indian burial-place but the enormous stature of the skeletons and the fact that pine trees of centuries growth covered the spot, go far to disprove the idea."

12 Foot Prehistoric Sioux Indian Skeleton Discovered in Missouri

Ancient 12 Sioux Indian Skeleton Discovered in Missouri

Galveston Daily News, August 15, 1883 
A GIANT'S SKELETON
    Hon J. H. Hainly, a well known and reliable citizen of Barnard Mo.  writes to the Gazette the particulars of the discovery of a giant skeleton four miles southwest of that place.  A farmer named John W. Haunon found the bones protruding from the bank of a ravine that had been cut by the action of the rains during the past years. Mr. Haunon worked several days in unearthing the skeletons, which proved to be that of a human being whose height was 12 feet.  The head through the temples was 12 inches;  from the lower part of the skull at the back to the top was 15 inches.  The ribs were nearly four feet long, 1 3/4 inches wide.
The thigh bones were 30 inches long and of large proportion.  When the earth was removed the ribs stood up high enough to enable a man to crawl in and explore the interior of the skeleton, turn around and come out with ease.
   The skeleton lay on its face, twenty feet feet below the surface of the ground, and the toes embedded in the earth, indicating that the body either fell or was placed there when the ground was soft.  The left arm was passed around backward, the head resting on the spinal column, while the right was streth3d out to the front and right.  Some of the bones crumbled upon exposure to the air, but many good specimens were preserved and are now on exhibition at Barnerd. Medical men are much interested.  The skeleton is generally pronounced a valuable relic of the prehistoric race.

Rare Photograph of the Ceremonial Cave Entrance at Mounds State Park

Rare Photograph of the Ceremonial Cave Entrance at Mounds State Park

Photograph of the cave entrance at the bottom of the bluff on the White River. Several historical accounts described the cave as possible extending to the earthwork complex above.

Map showing the entrance to the cave at the bottom of the bluff along with one of several of the natural springs.


History of Madison County, Indiana, 1880
        Above the spring represented in Plate E, and below the upper edge of the bluff, there are visible evidences of what appears to have been a subterranean passage communicating with the circular works A. It is said to have been, at one time, explored for a distance of sixty feet, where a round chamber, twelve feet in diameter, was reached. Beyond this the passage was closed, or nearly so, rendering a more extended exploration impracticable.

The spring that is situated at the cave entrance.  The high level of iron oxides has stained the stones a deep red color. Red ochre was symbolic of the menses and regenerating powers of Mother Earth.



Serpentine stone mound situated adjacent to the entrance to the cave entrance.  The serpent was the symbolic consort of the Earth Mother.

 The Bones Of A Giant Found in Minnesota
     A skull of heroic size and singular formation has been discovered among the relics of the mound-builders in the Red River Valley. The mound was 60 feet in diameter and 12 feet high. Near the center were found the bones of about a dozen men and women, mixed with the bones of various animals. The skull in question was the only perfect one and near it were found some abnormally large body bones. The man who bore it was evidently a giant. A thorough investigation of the mound and its contents will be made by the Historical Society.

Giant's Graveyard Discovered in New York Hints of a Great Battle

Giant's Graveyard Discovered in New York Hints of a Great Battle




 History of Madison County New York, 1872 

       Indian relics were so abundant and graves so numerous that it is believed there must have been a great battle fought here in the ages past. Beads could be picked up here and there in considerable quantities; hatchets, axes and many other curious relics are scattered about, having been covered with the accumulating soil of ages and which the husbandman's plow brings to the surface. Curiosity seekers have carried off many of these relics, but there is, however, now and then an instance where they are allowed to remain. More than a mile on the road northeast of Munnsville Depot, in the woods, there is an Indian's skull, lying partly exposed among the rubbish of the woods. Several Individuals are now living who noticed the same skull thirty years ago. It is in an out-of-the-way place, it has remained undisturbed till the present time. Some of the skeletons found in these burial grounds are of extraordinary size. One gentleman remarked that he took one of the large jaw bones and found it sufficiently ample to cover his own lower jaw. Another person stated that he took one of the skulls from which the base had decayed and found he could place it with ease over the outside of his own head.
