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
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."
