Archaeologists Confirm Hundreds of Giants Discovered in a Pennsylvania Cave

Hundreds of Giants Discovered in a Pennsylvania Cave

Philadelphia Times, June 27, 1885
Erie County Giants
Skeletons of Men Ten Feet High Found in Cave
   J. Porter has a farm near Northeast, not many miles from where the Lake Shore railroad crosses the New York state boundary line.  Early this week some workman in Mr. Porter's employ came upon the entrance to a cave and on entering it found heaps of human bones within.  Many skeletons were complete specimens of the find were brought to light and exhibited to the naturalist and archaeologists of the neighborhood.  They informed the wondering bystanders that the remains were unmistakably those of giants.
   The entire village of Northeast was aroused by the discovery and today hundreds of people from the city took advantage of their holiday to visit the scene. It was first conjectured that the remains were those of soldiers killed in battle with the Indians that abounded in the vicinity during the last century, but the size of the skulls and the lengths of the leg bones dispelled that theory.  So far about 150 giant skeletons of powerful proportions have been exhumed and indications point to a second cave eastward, which may contain as many more.  Scientists who have exhumed skeletons and made careful measurements of the bones that they are the remains of a race of gigantic creatures compared with which our tallest men would appear as pygmies.  There are no arrowheads, stone hatchets or other implements of war with the bodies.  Some of the bones are on exhibit at the various stores.

Fomorian Giant Uncovered in Ireland

Fomorian Giant Uncovered in Ireland

Irish News-New Zealand Tablet,  February 4, 1898
      Silgo-A Giant's Bones Unearthed.-After all Finn McCool and the Galway Giant seem not to have been the only mighty men of Ireland. Silgo, like Louth, can now claim to have produced an Irish Giant, although his history is forgotten. His bones have been discovered at the Market Cross, Silgo. Several men were engaged in digging a drain across the street when they succeeded much to their astonishment, in unearthing a skull, jawbone with teeth in good condition and various other parts of the human anatomy. The bones were exceptionally large and show that the man who in the long ago was laid to rest there must have been of giant stature. The discovery created quite a sensation in the town and much speculation was indulged in as to the supposed age of the remains. Colonel Wood Martin, the eminent Silgo historian, has given it as his opinion that the body must have been buried over 950 years ago and that the "giant" may probably have met his death in battle in those stirring times. The remains were taken in charge by the police and interred in Silgo cemetery.

Ancient Race of Giant Humans Uncovered in New Hampshire, Connecticut and Massachusetts

Ancient Race of Giant Humans Uncovered in New Hampshire, Connecticut and Massachusetts
Facial profile in New Hampshire called "The Old Man of the Mountain"  These profiles are most prevalent where giant human skeletons have been found.
Guide to the White Mountains and the Lake of New Hampshire, 1850
     A skeleton was exhumed in this town (Moltonborough) some 30 years ago, of almost fabulous proportions. It was buried in a sandy soil, on the shore of the lake, near the mouth of a small river. It was apparently the skeleton of a man some seven feet high- the jaw bones passing easily over the face of a large man.”
     There are also reports of 8 foot skeletons from New Haven and Trumbull CT., Burrillville R.I. giant’s skeletons in Northfield, Quincy, Chelmsford, Newton, Ma. Etc I also found evidence of the mound builder presence beyond skeletal remains such as implements of iron and copper. M

Human Giant's Graveyard Revealed in Oklahoma

Human Giant's Graveyard Revealed in Oklahoma

Circleville Herald, June 21, 1937
     Excavation work along the Washita River near here where the skeletons of a tribe of giant Indians recently were discovered continues under the direction of the University of Oklahoma and Tulsa University anthropologists.
     A half dozen of the skeletons, more than 7 feet tall, were uncovered after a rise in the river had caused a section of a bank to give way. Dr. Forrest E. Clements, head of the department of anthropology at the University of Oklahoma, estimated the race existed 750 years ago. He believed the find might lead to the discovery of a race of Indians unknown to anthropologists.
     The excavations have attracted considerable attention and visitors will be permitted only on Thursday, those in charge said. Pottery, arrowheads and other relics have been found. The jawbone of an animal believed to have been a deer also was uncovered. The WPA is furnishing a crew of 20 men to assist in the work. Clements said a detailed study of the finds, along with a study of layers of soil, will be necessary before an accurate estimate of theage of the skeletons can be made

Christmas Morning at Stonehenge

Christmas Morning at Stonehenge

The Winter Solstice (Christmas) sunset at Stonehenge as viewed from the alignment of the earthen gateway.

           The Winter Solstice has been celebrated in pagan religions all over theworld for thousands of years. The beginning of the solar year was the celebration of light and the rebirth of the Sun. In ancient northern Europe, it was known as Yule, derived from the Norse god, “Jul,” meaning wheel.
              Many of the current Xmas traditions have their origins in the pagan world of Sun worship. The tradition of mistletoe, yulelogs, exchanging of presents, kissing under the mistletoe decorating the Yule tree, wreaths, candles, holly, laurel, turkey, eggnog, spiced cider, caroling, all have their origins with the pagan sun worshippers.  
             The Romans celebrated the winter solstice with a feast called the Saturnalia in honor of Saturn, the god of agriculture. For this occasion, they decorated their homes with evergreen wreaths. The northern European Druids and priests of the ancient Celts, also adorned their temples with evergreen wreaths, that were symbolic of everlasting life.
                   In the 4thCentury B.C., Christian leaders imported the Saturnalia festival on December 25th as Jesus' birthday. Christian leaders were able to convert the pagans to Christianity by promising them that they could continue to celebrate the Saturnalia as Christians. This led many in the Church to ask, whether the pagans had converted to Christianity or the Christians had converted to paganism and solar worship.
Stephen Nissenbaum, professor history at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, writes, “In return for ensuring massive observance of the anniversary of the Savior’s birth by assigning it to this resonant date, the Church for its part tacitly agreed to allow the holiday to be celebrated more or less the way it had always been.”

Ancient Giant Sized Iroquois Remains Discovered in Dansville, New York

Ancient Giant Sized Iroquois Remains Discovered in Dansville, New York

History of Livingston County, New York
Dansville, New York
Main street cuts through the Indian burial ground, which covered two or three acres including the site of the Lutheran church. In sinking wells in the vicinity, a number of Indian relics and skeletons were exhumed, and about sixteen years ago workmen engaged in digging a cellar, near the southerly pan of this burial ground, came upon two skeletons of giant-sized Indians, which lay side by side. They had evidently long reposed there, some favoring element in the soil having preserved them beyond the ordinary limit.

Prehistoric Giants Tombs Are Located

Paris, France - (UP) - Nine tombs of prehistoric giants-the tallest of whom was 7 feet 10 inches-were discovered by workmen building a road under the town of Gap, capital of Hautes-Alpes, according to a story in the Petit-Parisien. The giants were buried in sarcophagi constructed of flat stones, but no tools or weapons indicating the period in which they lived could be found. It was believed they belonged to some hitherto unknown race."

Giant Iroquois Indians War Chief Uncovered in Livingston County, New York

Giant Iroquois Indians War Chief Uncovered in Livingston County, New York

History of Livingston County, New York - 1876

      Some years ago the remains of a giant Indian were found not far from Long Point on the Groveland side of Conesus Lake. The head lay in a turtle-shell, and by the side were found implements of war and other evidences of a noted burial. For some reason that has now escaped me, I have associated this grave with the great war-chieftain referred to in the text, though most likely without much reason.

Giants Discovered Burial Mounds in Northern Ohio

Giants Discovered Burial Mounds in  Northern Ohio

History of Portage County Ohio, 1885 

     When the first band of pioneers to the Western Reserve arrived at the mouth of Conneaut Creek, July 4, 1796, they discovered several mounds and could easily trace the outline of a large cemetery then overgrown with forest. Explorations were subsequently made and some gigantic skeletons exhumed from mounds which stood on the site of Conneaut, Ashtabula County. The frames and jaw-bones were those of giants and could not have belonged to the race of Indians then inhabiting any portion of this country. Several years ago a burial mound was opened in Logan County, from which three skeletons were taken. The frame of one was in an excellent state of preservation and measured nearly seven feet from the top of the skull to the lower part of the heel. In 1850 a mound lying on the north bank of Big Darby about one mile northwest of Plain City, in Union County, was opened and several massive skeletons taken therefrom. The lower jaw-bones, like those found at Conneaut, could be easily fitted over the jaw of a very large man, outside the flesh. These bones-and they are usually large wherever found-indicate that the Mound Builders were a gigantic race of beings, fully according in size with the colossal remains they have left behind them.

Nephilim Giant's Graveyard Uncovered in Northern Ohio

Nephilim Giant's Graveyard Uncovered in Northern Ohio


The mounds that were situated in the eastern part of what is now the village of Conneaut and the extensive burying ground near the Presbyterian Church, appear to have had no connection with the burying places of the Indians. They doubtless refer to a more remote period and are the relics of an extinct race, of whom the Indians had no knowledge. These mounds were of comparatively small size, and of the same general character of those that are widely scattered over the country. What is most remarkable concerning them is that among the quantity of human bones they contain, there are found specimens belonging to men of large stature, and who must have been nearly allied to a race of giants. Skulls were taken from these mounds, the cavities of which were of sufficient capacity to admit the head of an ordinary man, and jaw-bones that might be fitted on over the face with equal facility. The bones of the arms and lower limbs were of the same proportions, exhibiting ocular proof of the degeneracy of the human race since the period in which these men occupied the soil which we now inhabit. These mounds were, doubtless, held in great veneration in the ages to which they refer, not only as the depositories of their dead, but probably as the altars where their religious rites and sacrifices were performed, which may account for the origin of the custom which so universally prevails among christian nations, of burying their dead under or in the immediate vicinity of the churches. It is certain that, on opening the mounds, they are found to contain a quantity of charcoal, which may be the remains of the sacrificial wood, and fragments of a strong earthen ware, which may be the remnants of the vessels in which their incense was offered.

The ancient burying grounds referred to, situated a little west of the site where the brick church now stands, presents an object of deeper interest perhaps than any other relic remaining in the neighborhood. It occupied an area of about four acres of land, extending northward from the bank of the creek, near the brick church, to Main street, and westward to the present residence of Mr. Horatio Thurber, and cresting, with the exception of an angle in the south line, in compliance with the course of the bank, the form of an oblong square. It appeared to have been accurately surveyed into lots, running from the north to the south, and to exhibit all the order and propriety of arrangement deemed requisite to constitute christian burial. 

If the observation be just that the character of a people may be estimated by the order and taste displayed in their places of sepulchre, we shall be led to judge favorably of that people whose remains have long mouldered beneath these graves. On the first examination of the ground by the settlers they found it covered with trees not distinguishable from the surrounding forest, except an opening near the center containing a single butternut, which still remains to mark the spot. The graves were distinguished by slight depressions in the surface of the earth disposed in straight rows, with the intervening spaces, or alleys, cover[ing] the whole area within the boundaries before specified, which was estimated to contain from two to three thousand graves. These depressions, on a thorough examination made by Esq. Aaron Wright, as early as 1800, were found invariably to contain human bones, blackened with time, which on exposure to the air soon crumbled to dust.

The imagination in pained in endeavoring to penetrate the mystery in which the history of this people is shrouded. That the multitude whose mortal remains people these mansions of the dead, once existed, that they lived, died and were buried, is sufficiently obvious; but, of their origin, language, religion, or political and social condition, we can know absolutely nothing.

It will naturally be inferred that a burying ground of the character above described, must have been located amidst a populous district, and that the surrounding country has once been filled with a multitude of human inhabitants.

Evidence in confirmation of this fact is likewise obtained from the traces of ancient cultivation observed by the first settlers on the lands in the vicinity, which although covered with forest, exhibited signs of having once been thrown up into squares and terraces, and laid out into gardens.

8 Foot Giant Human Mummy Exhibited in Japan

8 Foot Giant Human Mummy Exhibited in Japan

The Bourbon news., December 04, 1914
Giant Mummy in Japan.
One of the most interesting exhibits at the Aisho exposition held at Tokyo was a giant mummy enclosed in a large, square coffin. The figure measured about eight feet in height. This relic was obtained by a Japanese explorer at a Buddhist temple in the province of Kiangsi. Experts support the claim that the mummy is that of a famous monk who lived at the beginning of the Christian era.

Skeleton of a Man Eight Feet High
Lexington, Kentucky., Nov. 9. - John Winter, of Bell county, last week, while digging a cellar at his home, on Elkwell creek, excavated a giant mummy. The mummy was that of a man eight feet high, and wrapped in a winding cloth of skins. It was placed in a canoe like coffin, and crumbled away upon being exposedthe the air. At the head of the giant were a stone hatchet and a few cooking utensils and a large hollow stone, which presumably contained
food. At his feet was a skin shield, which had also crumbled to dust.

Gigantic Remains Of Iroquois Chief Red Jacket's Mother is Uncovered in New York

Gigantic Remains Of Iroquois Chief  Red Jacket's Mother is Uncovered in New York

The Sun, Dec 08 1893 
   The mother of Red Jacket was a woman of gigantic frame being between six and seven feet tall.  On Monday last, workman employed in excavating for the foundation of a building the Lake Keuka Navigation Company is about to erect on the lake shore near Branenport on the spot where it is alleged that Red Jacket was born and where his mother died ande buried, unearthed a human skeleton of giant size and in a remarkably well preserved state.  Investigation trevealed that the remains were those of an Indiana and a female.  The believers in the Lake Keuka theory of the Red Jacket birthplace and burial place of his mother are convinced that the skeleton of the giant Indian woman uncovered at Brtanchpoty is that of Red Jacket's mother, and have arranged to re inter it in that locality and place a mon ument over it inscribed in accordance with that belief.

Ohio Adena Skeleton Found in an England Burial Mound

Ohio Adena Skeleton Found in an England Burial Mound

The Adena mound builders of the Ohio valley have the same rounded or a brachycephalic skull with  prominent brow-ridges and powerful jaws as those the Beaker People of the British Isles. Some of the Adena burial in Ohio were also in stone cists.

Giant skull from the Ohio Valley with the same unique shape as those found in the burial mounds across the British Isles associated with the Beaker People.

The Evolution Of An English Town 1922

A complete skeleton in a stone cist is now lying in a glass case in the museum. It was discovered accidentally by a farmer between Appleton-le-Moor and Spaunton. He had decided to remove a huge stone that had been an obstacle when ploughing, and in doing so found that he had removed the top stone of a cist belonging to the early Bronze Age. The man has a round or brachycephalic skull with the prominent brow-ridges and powerful jaws of the Celtic (Beaker People) people, and his right arm was arranged so that the hand was beneath the skull. By his left hand was the food vessel that is now placed on the left side of the skull, and at his feet are a number of small bronze studs or rivets.
These Bronze Age men seem to have had a very general belief in the spirit world, for the dead warrior was buried with his weapons as well as food, so that he might be sustained while he hunted in the other world with the spirit of his favorite ax or spear. The museum contains examples of socketed bronze celts and spear heads, as well as an infinite variety of arrowheads, flint knives, stone hammers and celts, and also colored beads and other ornaments.
