When Giants Roamed the Earth

A Secret Search for Giants Has Been Going On in New Zealand
(The world will) now never know for sure if this cave was filled by hand specifically to hide some fourteen 8’+ pre-Polynesian skeletons.
There’s a mini war of sorts underway in New Zealand over … giants! A reporter for Radio New Zealand (RNZ) has brought to light a hunt that has been underway for some time for evidence of giants that the searchers believe lived on the island prior to the Polynesians who arrived between 1250 and 1300 and developed the Māori culture. The group calls itself Tangata Whenua (Māori for “people of the land”) and, according to its website, has been secretly digging (often at night) a cave or tunnel since 2016 in the Waikato region in northern New Zealand for evidence of the 8-foot tall giants that they believe have been found before in 16 locations. The website states that the group knows of four of these sites and, earlier this month, they found what they claim is part of a femur from what would have been a being 7’10” to 8’4″ tall and lived 2500 years ago. (You can read the account and see a photo here.)
But after viewing photos and a video of the bone, multiple experts told RNZ it likely belonged to a moa.


RNZ reporter Susan Strongman has been reporting on the secret dig that has annoyed the landowner, who says they never asked permission, and archeologists and indigenous people, who say the hunters are not archeologists and risk harming historical artifacts and human remains. Strongman raised the heat on the group by revealing the name of one member — Rodney Davidson, a reiki practitioner from Northland. In a response on the group website and on his Facebook page, he defended the hunt, criticized Strongman and admitted that the group has stopped looking in that area, so no one will ever know for sure in the cave has giant skeletons in it. He said they will continue their clandestine searches in the other caves whose locations are apparently still secret.
Be aware that a Reiki protection is on the cave dig and has been since the start too. It has made it,s [sic] presence felt on at least two occasions to great benefit in fact. Abuse it in anyway and there will be a ‘ result ‘ ! I have no control over this so all your choice!
Along with the warning that a reiki aura or shield is protecting the cave, Davidson also gave out her twitter and email addresses for his supporters to send their responses – supporters whose numbers he claims have risen since she broke the story.

Meanwhile, experts like Otago University associate professor of bioarchaeology Dr Siân Halcrow agree that the bone is probably from a moa (a large extinct flightless bird resembling the emu), there is no evidence of any humans or human-like species of any size on New Zealand prior to the Māori (thus, no evidence that the Māori killed them off – a popular but unproven theory), and any searches for pre-Polynesian giants are disconcerting.

It does really highlight what some New Zealanders think, in terms of pre-Māori conspiracy theories, with really racist undertones. It’s not grounded in fact, so people should be aware.


Archaeologist Sian Keith told RNZ that archeologists seek evidence and are passionate and thorough, so talk of coverups and secrecy in his field are upsetting. That may be true among his own colleagues, but there are plenty of stories from Egypt, Central America and other archeology sites that would disagree.

Mysterious 'Giant' Spotted in Mexico

Residents of a community in Mexico are on edge following the sighting of a mysterious 'giant' that some suspect could have been either a Bigfoot or an alien. The eerie incident reportedlytook place last week on a communal piece of farmland near the city of Ciudad Valles. A witness to the weirdness, identified only as 'Mrs. Antonia,' said that the sighting took place at around 5:30 in the afternoon as she and her husband were playing with their child.

The group were taken aback when they heard a sound resembling an explosion that seemed to have come from a hill on the property. Thinking that an avalanche was about to occur, they looked over at the spot from where the sound emanated and were stunned to see what was described as a "tall, thin man" that Antonia likened to "a giant." Although her husband initially made fun of her for being scared, she said, when he also quickly became frightened when he spotted the mysterious visitor.

The witnesses were able to snap a few photographs of the creature, one of which can be seen above, however it is difficult to decipher what, exactly, is perched atop the hill. Nonetheless, word of the incident has spread throughout the region and raised concerns among residents. Indigenous elders in the region are said to be quiet about the case, but are rumored to have suggested that the eerie interloper could have been an alien or is somehow related to the coronavirus.

Others have put forward the possibility that it could have been a Bigfoot, but the famed cryptid is actually not a part of local legend in the area, where the infamous Skinwalker appears to be a more frequent suspect for similar bizarre encounters which would be attributed to the Sasquatch here in America. With all that said, what's your take on the puzzling photograph? Is it an alien, a Bigfoot, or merely a misidentification of some kind?

The Giants of Ancient Tennessee

John Haywood (1753-1826) was a historian known as the “father of Tennessee history.”

John Haywood
In Haywood’s 1823 work, The Natural and Aboriginal History of Tennessee, he documented several discoveries of giant skeletons, particularly in and around White County.


Haywood devoted a section to the giant discoveries in Tennessee in his book. The entire section (Chapter VIII, section 1) is printed below:

First, then—Of their Size.

This is ascertained by the length and dimensions of the skeletons which are found in East and West Tennessee. These will prove demonstratively, that the ancient inhabitants of this country, either the primitive or secondary settlers, were of gigantic stature, compared with the present races of Indians.

On the farm of Mr. John Miller, of White county, are a number of small graves, and also many large ones, the bones in which show that the bodies to which they belonged, when alive, must have been, seven feet high and upwards.

About the year 18l4, Mr. Lawrence found, is Scarborough’s cave, which is on the Calfkiller river, a branch of the Cany Fork, about 12 or 15 miles from Sparta, in a little room in the cave, many human bones of a monstrous size. He took a jaw bone and applied it to his own face, and when his chin touched the concave of the chin bone, the hinder ends of the jaw bone did not touch the skin of his face on either side. He took a thigh bone, and applied the upper end of it to his own hip joint, and the lower end reached four inches below the knee joint. Mr. Andrew Bryan saw a grave opened about 4 miles northwardly from Sparta, on the Calfkiller fork. He took a thigh bone, and raising up his knee, he applied the knee joint of the bone to the extreme length of his own knee, and the upper end of the bone passed out behind him as far as the full width of his body. Mr. Lawrence is about 5 feet, 10 inches, high, and Mr. Bryan about 5 feet, 9. Mr. Sharp Whitley was in a cave near the place, where Mr. Bryan saw the graves opened. In it were many of these bones. The sculls lie plentifully in it, and all the other bones of the human body; all in proportion, and of monstrous size.

Human bones were taken out of a mound on Tennessee river, below Kingston, which Mr. Brown saw measured, by Mr. Simms. The thigh bones of those skeletons, when applied to Mr. Simms’s thigh, were an inch and a half longer than his, from the point of his hip to his knee : supposing the whole frame to have been in the same Proportion, the body it belonged to must have been seven feet high or upwards. Many bones in the mounds there, are of equal size. Suppose a man seven or eight feet high, that is from 18 inches to 2 feet taller than men of the common size; suppose the body broader in the same proportion, also his arms and legs; would he not be entitled to the name of giant? Col. William Sheppard, late of North Carolina, in the year 1807, dug up, on the plantation of Col. Joel Lewis, 2 miles from Nashville, the jaw bones of a man, which easily covered the whole chin and jaw of Col. Lewis, a man of large size. Some years afterwards, Mr. Cassady dug up a skeleton from under a small mound near the large one at Bledsoe’s lick, in Sumner county, which measured little short of seven feet in length.

Human bones have been dug up at the plantation where Judge Overton now lives, in Davidson county, four miles southwestwardly from Nashville, making a cellar. These bones were of extraordinary size. The under jaw bone of one skeleton very easily slipped over the jaw of Mr. Childress, a stout man, full fleshed, very robust and considerably over the common size. These bones were dug up within the traces of ancient walls, in the form of a square of two or three hundred yards in length, situated near an excellent, never failing spring of pure and well tasted water. The spring was enclosed within the walls. A great number of skeletons was found within the enclosure, a few feet below the surface of the earth. On the outer side were the traces of an old ditch and rampart, thrown up on the inside. Some small mounds were also within the enclosure.

At the plantation of Mr. William Sheppard, in the county of Giles, eleven and a half miles north of Pulaski, on the east side of the creek, is a cave, with several rooms. The first 45 feet wide, and 27 long; 4 feet deep; the upper part of solid and even rock. Into this cave was a passage, which had been so artfully covered, that it escaped detection till lately. A flat stone, three feet wide and four feet long, rested upon the ground, and inclining against the cave, closed part of the mouth. At the end of this, and on the side of the mouth left open, is another stone rolled, which filling this also, closed the whole mouth. When these rocks were removed, and the cave opened, on the inside of the eave were found several bones—the jawbone of a child, the arm bone of a man, the sculls and thigh bones of men. The whole bottom of the cave was covered with flat stones of a bluish hue, being closely joined together, and of different forms and sizes. They formed the floor of the cave. Upon the floor the bones were laid. The hat of Mr. Egbert Sheppard, seven inches wide and eight inches long, but just covered and slipped over one of the sculls.

At the mouth of Obed’s river, on the point between It and the Cumberland river, which is high ground, certain persons, in digging, struck, a little below the surface, four stones standing upright, and so placed in relation to each other, as to form a square or box, which enclosed a skeleton, placed on its feet in an erect posture. The skull was large enough to go over the head of a man of common size. The thigh bones applied to those of a man of ordinary stature, reached from the joint of his hip to the calf of his leg.

About ten miles from Sparta, in White county, a conical mound was lately opened, and in the centre of it was found a skeleton eight feet in length. With it was found a stone of the flint kind, very hard, with two flat sides, having in the centre circular hollows exactly accommodated to the balls of the thumb and fore finger. This stone was an inch and a half in diameter, the form exactly circular. It was about one third of an inch thick, and made smooth and flat, for rolling, like a grindstone, to the form of which, indeed, the whole stone was assimilated. When placed upon the floor, it would roll for a considerable time without falling. The whole surface was smooth and well-polished, and must have been cut and made smooth by some hard metallic instrument.

No doubt it was buried with the deceased, because for some reason he had set a great value on it in his lifetime, and had excelled in some accomplishment to which it related. The colour of the stone was a dingy white, inclining to a darkish yellow. At the side of this skeleton were also found two flat stones, about six inches long, two and a half wide at the lower part, and about one and a half at the upper end, widening in the shape of an axe or hatchet from the upper to the lower end. The thickness of the stone, about one tenth of an inch. An inch below the upper end, exactly equidistant from the lateral edges, a small hole is neatly bored through each stone, so that by a string run through, the stone might be suspended off the sides or from the neck as ornaments.

One of these stones is the common limestone. The other is semitransparent, so as to be darkened by the hand placed behind it; and resembles in texture those stalactical formations, like white stone, which are made in the bottoms of caves by the dripping of water. When broken, there appears a grain running from one flat side to the other, like the shootings of ice or saltpetre, of a whitish colour inclining to yellow. The latter stones are too thin and slender, for any operation upon other substances, and must have been purely ornamental. The first described stone must have been intended for rolling. For why take so much pains to make it circular, if to be used in flinging? Or why, if for the, latter purpose, so much pains taken to make excavations adapted to the thumb and finger.

The conjecture seems to be a probable one, that it was used in some game played upon the same principles as that called ninepins; and the little round balls, like marbles, but of a larger size, were so disposed as that the rolling stone should pass through them. Such globular stone, it is already stated, was found in a mound in Maury county. With this large skeleton were also found eight beads and a human tooth. The beads were circular, and of a bulbous form. The largest about one fourth of an inch in diameter; the others smaller. The greater part of them tumescent from the edge to the centre, at which a hole was perforated for a string to pass through and to connect them. The inner sides were hard and white, like lime indurated by some chemical process. The outside was a thin coal of black crust, very much resembling Japan.

When we reflect, that the Scythian nations between the Danube and the Tonias, as late as within one century of the Christian era; were of a size which astonished the southern inhabitants of Europe and Asia; that they scalped their enemy; that they buried their dead in heaps of earth thrown over them, with such articles as were deemed by the deceased most valuable in his lifetime; and that their tumuli, or barrows, are yet to be seen in the plains towards the upper part of the Irish and Jenesee, and from the banks of the Volga to the lake Baikal; we cannot refrain from the conclusion, that this skeleton belonged to a human body of the same race, education and notions with those who lived on the Volga, Tonais and Obey. The same unknown cause which, in the course of 2000 years has reduced the size of the ancient Scythians and their tribes, the Gauls, and Germans, and Sarmatians, has produced the same effects here.

The descendants of these giants, both in the old and new world, agree with each other in bulk, as their ancestors did with each other, which proves a uniform cause operating equally both in the old and new world. The decrease in bulk seems to have kept pace everywhere with the increase of warm, temperature, and with the abbreviation of longevity. The giants of Hebron and Gath, and those of Laconia and Italy, whose large skeletons to this day attest that there they formerly dwelt, compared with those now found in West Tennessee, demonstrate that a change of climate, or of some other cause, has worked a remarkable change in the human system; and with respect to the mammoth, the megalonix, and other animals, has either extinguished or driven them into other and far distant latitudes.

Nature, as it grows in age, is less vigorous than at the beginning, and in its early age it was; its productions correspond with its debility, and the time must come, when she, like all her productions, will give up the ghost and work no more. But the principal use we have to make of the skeleton before us, is to discover, first, that he came from a cold or northern climate, and not from the south, as the primitive aborigines did, for men of large stature were never found within the tropics. Secondly, that he must have come from the north of Europe or of Asia, because of the similarity of customs already remarked: and thirdly, that be probably belonged to those northern tribes, which some centuries ago exterminated the nations which had come from the south, and were settled upon the Cumberland and its waters.

With this skeleton was found another nearly of the same size, with the top of his head flat, and his eyes placed apparently in the upper part of his forehead. The Aztecs or Mexicans represent their principal divinities, as their hieroglyphical manuscripts prove, with a head much more flattened than any which have been seen amongst the Caribs, and they never disfigured the heads of their children. But many of the southern tribes have adopted the barbarous custom of pressing the heads of their children between two boards, in imitation, no doubt, of the Mexican form, which, in their estimation was beautiful, or in some way advantageous. And here it may not be amiss to mention, that the Chilians, who lived as far to the south of the equator, as formerly did the Scythians, Goths, Vandals, Gauls and Germans, so remarkable in ancient times for their stature, did on the other side of it, were men of large stature.

One remark may be of some use in the drawing of inferences from the preceding facts. The skeletons, we find, are entire under conical mounds, or in part consumed by fire, and under such mounds, or entire in shallow graves, with flat rocks placed on the edges, at the sides, and at the head and feet, or are entire, above the common surface, and in the conical mounds enclosed in rocks placed together in the form of a box, or stand erect in such boxes, with the head some depth below the surface. To burn and cover with a mound, is Hindooic, Grecian, and belonging to the ancient countries of Asia Minor, and probably belonged to the aborigines of America, properly so called. To cover the entire body, is Scythic. To bury in graves, or in boxes is Ethiopic, Egyptian, and in part Hebraic, the Hebrews having learned it during their residence in Egypt, though they did not generally adopt it.

It may be concluded that the mounds over entire bodies, are Scythic; graves and boxes, Hebraic; and boxes in the mounds, Hebraic and Scythic; and of course, that the unconsumed skeletons, we see here, are either pure Scythians or Hebrew Scythians, whilst all others are Hindooic, or in other words aboriginal. The large men of the world have always been found in the north, and they have often invaded and broken up the people of the south. They have never been found in the south; nor have the people of the south ever broken up their settlements there, and marched upon those of the north, to expel them from their possessions, to make room for themselves. The men who deposited the skeletons we are now contemplating, were of northern growth, and they came to the south to drive away the inhabitants whom they found there, and to seat themselves in their possessions.

An Ancient Race of Giants in Mesoamerica

The following is an excerpt from my bookGiants: Men of Renown, published byAdventures Unlimited Press:

In 1519, Hernán Cortés (1485–1547) landed on the Yucatan Peninsula with about five hundred soldiers. His arrival was eerily like a prophecy set to be fulfilled that year of the return of the feathered serpent, the Aztec god Quetzalcoatl. The evil god Tezcatlipoca, the Smoking Mirror, banished Quetzalcoatl long ago, but before he left, he promised his followers he would return someday. Cortés, though, was no deity; Cortés was a man, driven by a lust for gold and power, who would bring the once mighty Aztec empire to its knees.

Shortly after Cortés arrived in Mexico with his soldiers, he established an alliance with the Tlaxcala people who were enemies of the Aztecs. Cortés learned much about the customs of the Tlaxcala people and the history of ancient Mexico from their caciques (chiefs). Bernal Díaz del Castillo (1490–1584) was with Cortés in Mexico and he chronicled the experiences of the Spanish conquistadors in his book The True History of the Conquest of New Spain. In his writings, Díaz recounted a meeting between two Tlaxcala caciques, Mase Escasi and Xicotenga, and Cortés. The tribal leaders gave the Spanish captain an abridged narrative of their history; during their discussion, they told Cortés about an ancient race of giants that lived alongside their ancestors. Díaz recorded the following:

They said that their ancestors had told them, that in times past there had lived among them men and women of giant size with huge bones, and because they were very bad people of evil manners that they had fought with them and killed them, and those of them who remained died off.

To prove the account of their ancestors, the caciques fetched a massive thigh bone and presented it to Cortés; Cortés had his men send the bone to King Charles V. Says Díaz:

So that we could see how huge and tall these people had been they brought us a leg bone of one of them which was very thick and the height of a man of ordinary stature, and that was the bone from the hip to the knee. I measured myself against it and it was as tall as I am, although I am of fair size. They brought other pieces of bones like the first, but they were already eaten away and destroyed by the soil. We were all amazed at seeing those bones and felt sure that there must have been giants in this country, and our Captain Cortes said to us that it would be well to send that great bone to Castille so that His Majesty might see it, so we sent it with the first of our agents who went there.

As we shall see later in the book, the massive bone given to Cortés—along with the testimony of the Tlaxcala leaders—corroborates the myths from Mesoamerica. Moreover, the stories from Mesoamerica were also brought to life for Cortés in an Aztec version of Goliath…

An Underground Ancient City Full Of Giant Skeletons Was Found In The Grand Canyon

In case you didn’t know by now, back in the early 20th century a group of archaeologists just randomly stumbled upon the gate to an ancient underground city in the Grand Canyon which was filled to the brim with giant skeletons. Back on April 5th, 1909, the Gazeta de Arizona actually brought attention to this discovery, stating that this discovery may actually bring in some insight as to the cyclopean proportionated civilization that must have lived in the Grand Canyon in ancient times.


GE Kinkaid is the explorer they named as the discoverer of a massive underground citadel on the Colorado River and they even mentioned how he was supported financially by the Smithsonian Institution all along. They had only uncovered the entrance at the time, but according to them the whole tunnel that they came upon here extended for over 1,600 meters underground. The entrance in itself was also over 450 meters underground and although he wanted to get the word out, he was banned from doing so as the area was instantly taken over by the government.


He mentioned in the article how the architecture in itself was out of this world and how the central axis of the whole city was made to be inhabited by Giants, not normal-sized humans, to say the least. Inside of this city, they actually came across several 2,74 meters tall Giants, and although he did declare that he snapped several pictures of them they were taken by the governmental figures there. At the end of the entrance, they actually came across a massive statue of what must have been their idol which was supposedly tens of meters long.

Marvelous legend, but unconfirmed. Not surprisingly, the Smithsonian dismisses it.

Urban Legends About the Smithsonian | At the Smithsonian | Smithsonian Magazine

Myth #4: The Smithsonian discovered Egyptian ruins in the Grand Canyon.

Fact: It didn’t.

Backstory: On April 5, 1909, the Arizona Gazette ran the following headline: “Explorations in Grand Canyon; Mysteries of Immense Rich Cavern Being Brought to Light; Jordan Is Enthused; Remarkable Find Indicates Ancient People Migrated from Orient.” The article includes testimony of one G. E. Kincaid who says that he, traveling solo down the Green and Colorado Rivers, discovered proof of an ancient civilization—possibly of Egyptian origin. The story also asserts that a Smithsonian archaeologist named S. A. Jordan returned with Kincaid to investigate the site. However, the Arizona Gazette appears to have been the only newspaper ever to have published the story. No records can confirm the existence of either Kincaid or Jordan.

But more open-minded investigators also couldn't confirm it either.

On March 12, 1909, The Arizona Gazette published an article titled, “G. E. Kincaid Reaches Yuma.” It was a short, mildly interesting announcement that Mr. “Kincaid” was only the second person to make the perilous boat trip down the entire course of the Colorado River, starting from Green River, Wyoming and eventually reaching Yuma, Arizona. A feat worthy of mention in the papers of course, but aside from stating that he took over 700 photographs and “Some interesting archaeological discoveries were unearthed,” there was not much indication of the news which was to come next. Twenty four days later, on April 5, 1909, the newspaper ran a follow-up to their first article on the adventurous Mr. Kincaid, except this time it was full, front-page coverage on just what discoveries he’d unearthed previously. This article (also uncredited) reported that along with “G.E. Kinkaid” (his name now spelled with a “k”) a “Professor S.A. Jordan” and a team from the Smithsonian had investigated what appeared to be a large network of tunnels and rooms, some filled with ancient mummies and artifacts that did not appear to be from the Western Hemisphere. And that was the end of the story. No further stories were printed by the newspaper, no knowledge by the Smithsonian about any such expedition, and no one knows if “Kinkaid” or “Jordan” ever existed, let alone the cave itself. That leaves us with two questions: is this story real, and if real, what would be the implications to world history?

The Mysterious Giant of Castelnau

A pervasive feature of the myths and legends of many cultures all over the world is that of giants walking amongst us. Here we have colossal beings roaming the land to tower over all ion their path, and it is all very intriguing and awe inspiring, yet these stories have often been taken to be more than mere legend. Peppered through history have been those instances of actual remains of these hulking beasts being found, and one of the most curious is the time a skeleton of a giant was allegedly found in France, which then made its way into scientific journals and could have constituted real evidence that these creatures were more than myth.

In the winter of 1890, the French anthropologist Georges Vacher de Lapouge was at Castelnau-le-Lez, a commune in the Occitanie region of Southern France near the city of Montpellier, for the purpose of studying its ancient Bronze Age burial tumulus, a kind of cemetery. Lapouge uncovered a large number of human remains there, including about forty skulls, but near the bottom of the burial site, in a section that would have dated all the way back to Neolithic times, he found something very strange indeed. There among the normal sized human remains were those from an individual who would have towered over others at the time and be truly called a giant. Lapouge would write of the bones in the journal La Nature:

"I think it unnecessary to note that these bones are undeniably human, despite their enormous size. The first is the middle part of the shaft of a femur, 14 cm length, almost cylindrical in shape, and the circumference of the bone is 16 cm. The second piece is the middle and upper part of the shaft of a tibia. The circumference is 13 cm at the nutrient foramen…. the length of fragment is 26 cm…. The third, very singular, was regarded by good anatomists as the lower part of a humerus. The volumes of the bones were more than double the normal pieces to which they correspond. Judging by the usual intervals of anatomical points, they also involve lengths almost double. The subject would have been a likely size of 3m, 50. (11 ft. 6 in.)"


Comparison of the giant bones and regular bones

That would have been a very large fellow, indeed, and along with the report was a photo engraving of some of the bones of the “giant,” including the humerus, tibia, and femoral mid-shaft lying next to normal sized bones, and the difference is profound. Indeed, the discovery was completely groundbreaking, in that if this was true it would be by far the tallest human being ever known, a true giant in every sense, and so the remains were sent off to be studied at the prestigious University of Montpellier, where they were supposedly examined by a professor of zoology by the name of M. Sabatier and a M. Delage, professor of paleontology. The bones would further be studied in 1892 by a Dr. Paul Louis André Kiener, professor of pathological anatomy at Montpellier School of Medicine. An article in The London Globe would say of this analysis:

"In the year 1890 some human bones of enormous size, double the ordinary in fact, were found in the tumulus of Castelnau, and have since been carefully examined by Prof. Kiener, who, while admitting that the bones are those of a very tall race, nevertheless finds them abnormal in dimensions and apparently of morbid growth. They undoubtedly reopen the question of the “giants” of antiquity, but do not furnish sufficient evidence to decide it."

Making this all even stranger was an additional discovery that was purportedly made at a prehistoric cemetery at nearby Montpellier, France, when workers excavating a water works reservoir stumbled across what seemed to be the skulls truly enormous individuals even taller than that of Castelnau-le-Lez find. The bones were allegedly sent to the French Academy of Sciences for further study, and a report in The Princeton Union of Minnesota would say of this finding:

"In a prehistoric cemetery recently uncovered at Montpellier, France, while workmen were excavating a, water works reservoir, human skulls were found measuring 28, 31 and 32 Inches in circumference. The bones which were found with the skulls were also of gigantic proportions. These relics were sent to the Paris academy, and a learned “savant” who lectured on the find says that they belonged to a race of men between ten and fifteen feet in height."


Was there any connection between these two, perhaps both of them pointing to some race of gigantic people? If any of these reports are true then these would be the tallest human beings known to have ever existed, and the Castelnau-le-Lez discovery is promising in that the remains seem to have been studied by various scientific specialists and published in a scientific journal, giving them some added veracity.

However, as exciting as it all seems to be there are still problems with the story. For one it does not seem as if a peer reviewed paper was ever published on the bones, leaving us with only the article in “La Nature.” It seems after that initial discovery and analysis, along with some newspaper reports at the time, they were just sort of forgotten about. Also, considering the era, there were still many misunderstandings about physiology, and perhaps misjudgments made on the estimated measurements.

The biggest strike against the case is that the bones have sort of been lost to history and no one knows where they are now, meaning they can’t be analyzed with modern techniques and standards. Because of this, we are left to wonder what these remains meant, and whether they really were true hard evidence that giants once walked the earth.

Real or hoax?
These photos are from a recent archialogical dig in Greece. They discovered the skeletal remains of these giants that prove the Bible true. Gensis 6:4 There were giants on the earth in those days. Along with that one Several others such as Numbers 13:33 and Deuteromony 2. They were described as Nephrilim in the Greek text that the Bible was translated from.

Was Goliath really a Giant?

Goliath, described as having a jaw-dropping height, was felled by King David in the Hebrew Bible. But a new research questions whether or not Goliath was a giant.

Some ancient texts say that Goliath stood from “four cubits and a span” (7.80 feet or 2.38 meters) to “six cubits and a span” (11.35 feet or 3.46 m). To put it in perspective, the tallest recorded person in modern times stood an impressive 8 feet 11 inches (2.72 m) tall.

But how much these “cubits” and “spans” are in modern-day measurements?

Scientists aren’t sure. In ancient Israel, a “cubit” was equal to 1.77 feet (54 centimeters), and a span was equal to 0.72 feet (22 cm). Current archeological studies excavate Gath, the city where Goliath grew up.

Recently, the team unearthed a fortification wall found in the northern part of the lower city. The stone wall foundations measured exactly 2.38 meters (four cubits and a span) in width at every point along the 40 meters of its line.

Scientists argue that biblical writers may have gotten Goliath’s height from the width of the north lower city wall of Gath. They also notice that Goliath is the only person whose precise height is recorded in the Bible.

So where did the Bible’s authors have gotten Goliath’s height of “four cubits and a span?”

It’s possible that the Bible writers “have been metaphorically describing Goliath as being comparable to the size and strength of the Philistine capital’s city wall.

Kap-Dwa: The terrifying two-headed giant mummy from Patagonia, Argentina

There isn’t a shortage of ancient texts and general evidence to support the idea that giants lived on Earth. Now, meet Kap Dwa, a two-headed, 3.5-meter-tall giant from Patagonia.

So, where did Kap Dwa come from?

The story begins in 1673 when this massive two-headed giant was captured by Spanish sailors. The ‘monster’ remained captive until he was killed with a pike through the chest, while trying to escape.

In 1914, after being passed from one showman to another, the mummified remains of Kap Dwa ended up at Weston’s Birnbeck Pier. There, his remains spent some 45 years on display until “Lord” Thomas Howard purchased the remains in 1959.

Kap-Dwa continued to amaze people and somehow ended up in Baltimore Md, in a strange collection at Bob’s Side Show at The Antique Man Ltd, owned by Robert Gerber and his wife.

You may think, this is nothing but another elaborate fake. However, Kap-Dwa does exist and the mummified remains can be found in Gerber’s collection.

Gerber’s story of Kap-Dwa

Mr. Gerber however, tells a much different story than the above. According to Gerber, Kap-Dwa was in fact found already dead on a beach with a massive spear in his chest.

The ‘creature’ was mummified by locals in Paraguay—not Patagonia— until an English Captain called George Bickle came across his remains, eventually transporting him to England, to a museum in Blackpool where he stayed on display for several years.

Eventually, the mummified remains were transported back to the Americas to Baltimore.

Ok, so he did exist, does that prove Giants were common in the past?

We can find numerous ancient texts and accounts that mention the existence of giants. Some of these texts can even be found in religious books like the bible.

“There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” -Genesis 6:4

The Nephilim are believed to have been the offspring of the “sons of God” and the “daughters of men” before the Deluge according to Genesis 6:4; the name is also used in reference to giants who inhabited Canaan at the time of the Israelite conquest of Canaan according to Numbers 13:33.

“And there we saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak, who come of the Nephilim; and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.” -Numbers 13:33.

To add even more credibility to this story, a Dutch captain – Sebalt de Weert – associated with the exploration of the coasts of South America and the Falkland Islands south of Argentina, claimed to have seen members of a “race of giants” while he and his crew where rowing to an island in the Magellan Strait.

According to the captain these aggressive, long-haired and reddish-brown giants were naked and riding towards them on 7 odd-looking boats…

Kap-Dwa is real as many other discoveries of giant human bones and huge skeletons around the world. And what about the two heads? Was the giant a ‘conjoined twins’.

It is up to you to conclude whether or not, something like this is possible, and whether or not the existence of Kap-Dwa proves that in the distant past, giants did exist on Earth… Meanwhile, every year, scientists find new proofs showing that giants once roamed Earth

A Twelve-Foot-Tall Warrior Chief


In his book The Old Frontier, James Cowan recounted the legends of ancient New Zealand and told the tale of Kiharoa, the giant warrior chief of the Ngāti-Raukawa and Ngāti-Whakatere tribes. According to Cowan, there was a curious landmark near the village of Whenuahou known as the “Giant’s Grave.” The grave was 12–14 feet long and 4 feet wide. Enquiring about the the grave, Cowan learned the legend behind it from two warriors from the Ngāti-Maniapoto tribe. He wrote:
There certainly seems to have been a veritable giant, a man of enormous stature and length of reach with the hand-weapons of those days, six generations ago. This Kiharoa, or “The Long Gasping Breath,” was a chief of the Ngati-Raukawa and Ngati-Whakatere tribes, who in those times owned the Tokanui hills and the surrounding fruitful slopes.
Kirahoa was said to have stood at twice the height of an average-sized man. He wielded an enormous taiaha—a traditional Māori close-quarters staff. His weapon was named “The First rays of Morning Light,” or Rangihaeata in the native tongue.

Cowan described Kiharoa thusly:

Kiharoa was tattooed on body as well as face, and when he leaped into battle, whirling “Rangihaeata” from side to side in guard and feint and cut, his blue-carved skin glistening with oil and red ochre, his great glaring eyes darting flame, his moko-scrolled features distorted with fury, few there were brave enough to face him.
Though Kiharoa was a mighty man and struck fear into the hearts of those he faced, no one is invincible; Kiharoa would fall in battle at Whenuahou. A bad omen preceeded the giant’s death; as he was rushing down a hill, he slipped on some leaves and fell nearly breaking his taiaha.

Kiharoa may have become unsettled by his fall; he was outfought and killed by the Ngāti-Maniapoto warriors led by chief Wahani—also a man of gigantic stature. Kiharoa’s warriors panicked and fled once their leader had fallen; many of them were slaughtered. The fallen warriors were butchered for meat. Kiharoa’s corpse was carved up and eaten on the spot. The giant’s head was smoke dried and kept as a souvenir from the battle. Before dismembering the body of Kiharoa for their feast, the Ngāti-Maniapoto warriors measured him—he was 2 fathoms, or 12 feet long.

Italian sailors knew about North America 150 years BEFORE Christopher Columbus discovered the continent, researchers claim

Italian sailors knew about America 150 years before Christopher Columbus discovered the continent, researchers have claimed. A reference to Genoan sailors knowing of a land west from Greenland 'where giants live' has been uncovered in the writings of a 14th-century Milanese friar.

Italian academics came across the passage while studying the Cronica Universalis - written by Galvaneus Flamma around 1340 - for the first time. Referring to 'Markland', meaning Forestland, the Dominican friar writes: 'In this land, there are buildings with such huge slabs of stone that nobody could build with them, except huge giants.

'There are also green trees, animals and a great quantity of birds. However, no sailor was ever able to know anything for sure about this land or about its features.'

The text provides evidence that reports of the American continent were circulating in the Mediterranean region before Columbus's discovery, say researchers.

Paolo Chiesa, who led the research at the University of Milan, told The Times: 'This astonishing find is the first known report to circulate in the Mediterranean of the American continent, and if Columbus was aware of what these sailors knew it might have helped convince him make his voyage.'

The professor of Medieval Latin Literature added: 'Nordic legends describe the trips, but until now there has been no evidence that word of this land spread to the Mediterranean.'

Auctioned at Christie’s in 1996 for $14,950 (£10,980), the Cronica Universalis was first drawn attention to in 2013, by Sante Ambrogio Céngarle Parisi. It is preserved in a single manuscript held by a private owner and remains unpublished, although an edition is planned.

“The Bones of a Giant Found: St. Paul, Minn., May 24 – A skull of heroic size and singular formation has been discovered amon the relics of the mound-builders in the Red River Valley. the mound was 60 feet ind iameter and 12 feet high. Near the centre 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.” New York Times, May 25, 1882

“Giants’ Bones in Mound. Scientists Unearth Relics of Indians Who Lived 700 Years Ago. Special to The New York Times. Binghamton, July 13 – Professor A. B. Skinner of the American Indian Museum, Professor W. K. Morehead of Phillips Andover Academy, and Dr. George Donohue, Pennsylvania State Historian, who have been conducting researches along the valley of the Susquehanna, have uncovered an Indian mound at Tioga Point, on the upper portion of Queen Esther’s Flats, on what is known as the Murray farm, a short distance from Sayre, Penn which promises rich additions to Indian lore. In the mound uncovered were found the bones of sixty-eight men which are believed to have been buried 700 years ago. The average height of these men was seven feet, while many were much taller. Further evidence of their gigantic size was found in large celts or axes hewed from stone and buried in the grave. On some of the skulls, two inches above the perfectly formed forehead, were protuberances of bone. Members of the expedition say that is the first discovery of its kind on record and a valuable contribution to the history of the early races. The skull and a few bones found in one grave were sent to the American Indian Museum.” New York Times, July 14th, 1916

“WISCONSIN MOUND OPENED. Skeleton Found of a Man Over Nine Feet High with an Enormous Skull. MAPLE CREEK, Wis., Dec 19 – One of the three recently discovered mounds in this town has been opened. In it was found the skeleton of a man of gigantic size. The bones measured from head to foot over nine feet and were in a fair state of preservation. The skull was as large as a half bushel measure. Some finely tempered rods of copper and other relics were lying near the bones. The mound from which these relics were taken is ten feet high and thirty feet long, and varies from six to eight feet in width. The two mounds of lesser size will be excavated soon.” New York Times, Dec 20th, 1897

A huge skeleton, believed to be that of a prehistoric human being, has been discovered in the Salmon River country, south of here, by two members of the State Highway Department who have brought their find to this city. The lower jaw and vertebrae will be sent to the Smithsonian Institution at Washington, D.C. for analysis as to the probable date of existence. The bones were found in the side of a cliff at a depth estimated to be fifty feet. Nearly the entire skeleton was recovered. Measuring more than eight feet in height and possessing numerous strange features, the skeleton has aroused widespread interest. Three physicians pronounced it to be that of a woman. Belief that the preson was of a herbivorous race has been expressed, owing to the peculiar formation of the jaws and teeth. Both the upper and lower jaws have only ten teeth each and all intact.” New York Times March 1924

“Found Skeletons of Giants – Skulls Twice as Large as Those of Ordinary Adults – Two skeletons, each measuring more than seven feet in length, were discovered recently in a gravel pit in a forest near Fon-du-Lac, Wis. The skulls are twice as large as those of an ordinary adult and the thigh bones are almost six inches longer than those of a six-foot man. The bones are in a good state of preservation. It is probable the skeletons, which are thought to be remaines of some pre-historic race, will be sent to Milwaukee for examination.” The Columbian, Sept 7th, 1905

BONES OF PREHISTORIC MAN. Skeleton of a Giant Found in a Rude Sepulcher on Pine Ridge. UKIAH, Cal., Aug 21 – the discovery of the bones of a giant in a rudely excavated hole in a limestone rock on the western side of Pine Ridge has aroused considerable interest among local anthropologists. U. N. Brigg and Frank Patton unearthed the remains of what appeared to be a prehistoric man last week while out hunting on Pine Ridge. It being quite warm the hunters had sought a shady piece at the base of a tall limestone cliff. They sat for an hour or so enjoing the soft breezes wafted from the valley beyond, and Briggs in poking around in a hole in the rock unearthed several bones. They appeared to be those of a human being. Upon closer scrutiny it was discovered that the cavity in which the bones had been deposited was evidently the work of human hands. The walls had been cut with a sharp-pointed instrument and the entrance to the tomb or sepulcher had at one time been closed up. The hunters examined the tomb closely and found a number of bones of the feet and hands a portion of the skull. The remains will be sent to the Smithsonian Institution.” The San Francisco call, August 22, 1897
