There are stories of giants in every culture, and although mostly dismissed
as myths or exaggerations, there is (or at least was) some evidence of their
existence in reality. In November 1856 people who were ploughing Sheriff
Whickham's vineyard in East Wheeling (Now West Virginia) discovered the remains
of a human skeleton 10 feet 9 inches tall. This was however discarded as a
hoax. The Humboldt Museum in Winnemucca, Nevada contains a 1 foot tall human
skull that was found in the Lovelock Cave, 122km NE of Reno, Nevada. Several
bones and skulls this size were uncovered by miners of Lovelock Cave, but as no
scientists wanted to examine them they were just forgotten about. Giant
skeletons have also been found in several other areas, but the bones always seem to
be discarded, burnt by locals or taken for research, where they strangely
disappear never to be seen or heard of again! One of the most puzzling cases
concerns the American Investigating Museum in Philadelphia. In the 1880's some
human skulls were found in a burial mound at Sayre, Bradford County,
Pennsylvania. What made them strange was that they were very large, and on top of
that, they had "horny projections" about two inches above the eyebrows. The
skeletons found with them were normal, other than the fact that they were 7 feet
tall, its estimated that they were buried around AD. 1200. Now for the really
strange bit; some of the bones were sent to the American Investigating
Museum in Philadelphia, where nothing more was heard of them, they have just
disappeared. My thoughts on this, is that they were confiscated by government
officials to cover up some of the past that they don't want us to know about.
That, or by some angry scientists who couldn't cope with the idea that something
else may have occurred in human evolution.
