8 Foot Human Giant Discovered While Hauling Gravel in Northern Minnesota

 8 Foot Human Giant Discovered While Hauling Gravel in Northern Minnesota


Minnesota is a hotbed for the discovery of giant human skeletons that were a western extension of the Maritime Archaic that inhabited the Atlantic coastal regions to the Great Lakes.

Star and Sentinel, August, 1, 1915
      Battle Lake, Minn.-While hauling gravel from the Thore Glende farm northwest of here workmen discovered a huge human skeleton. The jaw bones were in good state of preservation and were of mammoth size. The teeth were intact and about twice the size of the average man's. Some of the teeth looked as though they had been filled with cement, but in all probability were sound at the time of death and the enamel had decayed, leaving the darker colored interior exposed. The jaw was taken to St. Louis by L. D. Johnson, who was present when the skeleton was discovered and possibly experts there can throw some light upon the discovery. Those who saw the remains estimated that when living the man must have been fully eight feet in height.
