Ancient Giant Human Remains Discovered on Vashon, Island, Washington

Ancient Giant Human Remains Discovered on Vashon, Island, Washington



Spokane Daily Chronicle, June 22, 1908
      While digging a posthole on the premises of S. S. Heath at Burton, Vashon Island, the other day Charles Christman found the skeleton of a giant, states a west side report. It measured 7 feet 6 inches in height and all the bones are large in proportion to their length, showing the person to have been a man of great weight. The skull had a transverse diameter of 7 1/2 inches and is 21 inches in circumference. The skeleton was but 18 inches below the surface and had evidently lain in the ground for many years. Heath and Christman propose to sell the skeleton. All the bones are in a good state of preservation. The settlers are at a loss to account for the skeleton. Secretary
