Old newspaper Stories:
When we mention humanoid beings on this planet, we have to pay attention to the so-called giants that once roamed the earth. There is a lot of historical information about large to very large humanoids (they are not human, or homo sapiens) in every culture, all over the globe. Some people have gathered that information and published books about this topic. I do not want to go into this, there are some websites that have good information about the legends, tales, but also archaeological finds that made headlines in the newspapers. There have been many times when large skeletons were unearthed, examined and sent to museums, especially the Smithsonian, to then disappear for good. There are some people who do not want to upset the established doctrine of evolution, and everything that does not fit in their theory has to disappear. Based on the descriptions of the giants skeletons found in the past (and which have since disappeared) we know that these giants were not Homo Sapiens (modern man), as some had elongated skulls, a double row of teeth and other characteristics that did not match those of humans.
In this series of Physical Evidence of Humanoid Beings, we have to turn to contemporary finds of giants bones in places where they don’t hide them away.
You won’t find any giant skeletons in American or European museums. We have to look elsewhere, where people have a much more open mind, and that is the Asian continent. That is the place where we can find pictures of archaeological finds of giants bones and skulls, and validation that these beings were indeed giants. The term giants means that these beings were larger than humans (homo sapiens).
How tall does a man has to be to be called a giant? There are many pictures of skeletons (in archaeological digs) that are 1.7 to 2 meters (5.6 to 7.3 feet)tall. To draw a line somewhere I will only post finds of skeletons that are at least 2.5 meters (8 feet) tall, as humans are not known to be that tall.
On this website you can see some pictures of skeletons that were quite tall, but under 8 feet. But they might still be just tall humans, or Homo Sapiens.
On the other hand, many skeletons between 6’7” to 7’6” have been found in the USA, and these people were not Homo Sapiens, because of their very different features. Some have a double row of teeth, 6 fingers, 6 toes and like humans came in different races. Sometimes, the teeth in the front of the jaw are regular molars. Some had elongated skulls. Richard Dewhurst wrote a book about these finds: The Ancient Giants Who Ruled America: The Missing Skeletons and the Great Smithsonian Cover-Up. A great overview of the book can be found on the Graham Hancock website.
Steve Quale also has done extensive research in the presence of giants on this planet.
Reported on the KurdPress website of July 19, 2012:
[Kurdisthan is a geo-cultural region where the Kurdish people live; the Kalar district is is a district of the Sulaymaniyah Governorate, in Iraq.]
Bones of 3-meter men found in Kurdistan Region
Kurdistan Region – The skeletons of at least four 10-feet tall men, archeologists believe date back to thousands of years ago, have been found near the Kalar district, south of Kirkuk Province.
The discovery was made at Rahim Hills in Rizgari town, within the administrative territories of Kalar, where archeologists have been digging for about 6 weeks, AK News reported.
“We found a number of graves here. The skeleton of the men are so big and tall that makes them abnormal. These remains could date back to thousands of years BC” said Mohammed Ali, media official of Garmyan Archeology Department.
“We are now working on cleaning the graves. There are four of them. The height of the men according to their skeletons is about 3 meters,” he said, calling them “fascinating” Besides the graves and the skeletons, a number of carved pottery works have been found in the same site, according to Ali. “These jars date back to about 4,500 BC” He said the age of the jars has been determined by archeologists in the US, Turkey and Jordan after photos of the items were sent to them.
On August 6, 2008, the Russian Channel One TV station, covered a story of a team of researchers which found the giants bones in Borjomi in the south-central region of the republic of Georgia. Prof. Dr. Abesalom Vekua, a member of the team, is a leading scientific researcher of the Georgian National Museum. He is famous for finding human fossils dated at 1.8 million years old in Dmanisi, Georgia. He has published many report on his findings in Georgia, and is a recognized authority.
Translation of the article:
Valley of the giants in the Borjomi Gorge:
Scientists have found a settlement of mysterious, mythical creatures in the Borjomi gorge.
Archaeologists have made a sensational find. In the mountains of the Borjomi Gorge, they found the remains of mysterious creatures of which legends have been told by local residents for centuries. As it turned out, the stories about the large giants are in fact real. What a mystery that has been hidden the highlands!
The bones belong to giant humans. They lived 25,000 years ago in the mountains of the Borjomi Gorge. The scientists are telling us that the height of these human giants could have been from 2.5 to 3 meters (8.25 feet to 9.9 feet). Academic Abesalom Vekua believes that the find may be a sensation, as the scientific community has long debated if there were giants who inhabited certain areas of Eurasia thousands of years ago.
Abesalom Vekua, Academician of the Academy of Sciences of Georgia: “Pay attention to the lumbar bone, it differs from the bones of modern man in size and thickness. The skull is also much larger. These people have lived and evolved in isolation from the rest of civilization, they are so different in features and growth. In the literature they are referred to as giants, but evidence supporting this hypothesis does not exist. Thus, we are on the threshold of a sensation. But a confirmation will have to be preceded by hard work.”
The legend of the giants in the highlands of the Borjomi Gorge has been passed on from generation to generation. Local shepherds and hunters claim that their ancestors spoke of superstrong giants who lived in these mountains long ago. Moorman Shirakadze, forester: “My grandfather told me about these strange creatures that lived here before. He, too, was probably told about this by someone. In the mountains you will find harsh conditions and untouched nature, and this is probably why only a superman could survive in those days.”
A group of 15 people, which included archaeologists, palaeontologists and historians, left the hunting lodge and went on an expedition to the mountains. How far they needed to go to get to the “valley of the giants,” no one could tell. Waiting ahead of them were for steep, icy mountain streams and forest predators. The only female member of the expedition was Lela Ninua a journalist from the “Good Morning” show at “Rustavi-2” TV-channel of Georgia, and she remembers the week away from civilization as an extreme game of survival.
“We had to find food ourselves; we could not bring with us all we needed. It was basically to fish in the mountain streams. Collect mushrooms. At night, somebody in the group was on duty, so that bears and wolves could not sneak up on us. Once I fell behind and got lost. You can not imagine how bitterly I wept. I was found after half an hour, but it seemed like an eternity.”
The enthusiasm of the members of the expedition was rewarded. The place of the giants – they found it. The settlement of the strange creatures had stone paths and crumbling crypts. The area was dotted with the bones. They were brought to the surface by mountain streams, which are overflowing in the spring during snowmelt. Otar Baghaturia, Ph.D.: “What we found exceeded all expectations. Unfortunately, we were on primary research and could only take with us what was on the surface. What can be found in these fossilized volcanic rocks will have to be examined during an new expedition. There are a lot of interesting things. “
This uninhabited mountain gorge in Borjomi can now be turned into a paradise for scientists. Now that it is known that this is the valley of the giants – that this is not a myth. The next expedition, larger and better equipped, will travel here next summer. Meanwhile, Georgian scientists together with their foreign colleagues, will study in detail the unique material which they were able to detect.

At one time the Lovelock Cave, in Nevada, was known as Horseshoe cave because of its U-shaped interior. The cavern—located about 20 miles south of modern day Lovelock, Nevada, is approximately 40-feet deep and 60-feet wide. It’s a very old cave that pre-dates humans on this continent. In prehistoric times it lay underneath a giant inland lake called Lahontan that covered much of western Nevada. Geologists have determined the cavern was formed by the lake’s currents and wave action.
The Paiutes, a Native-American tribe indigenous to parts of Nevada, Utah and Arizona, told early white settlers about their ancestors’ battles with a ferocious race of white, red-haired giants. According to the Paiutes, the giants were already living in the area. The Paiutes named the giants “Si-Te-Cah” that literally means “tule-eaters.” The tule is a fibrous water plant the giants wove into rafts to escape the Paiutes continuous attacks. They used the rafts to navigate across what remained of Lake Lahontan. According to the Paiutes, the red-haired giants stood as tall as 12-feet and were a vicious, unapproachable people that killed and ate captured Paiutes as food. The Paiutes told the early settlers that after many years of warfare, all the tribes in the area finally joined together to rid themselves of the giants. One day as they chased down the few remaining red-haired enemy, the fleeing giants took refuge in a cave. The tribal warriors demanded their enemy come out and fight, but the giants steadfastly refused to leave their sanctuary. Frustrated at not defeating their enemy with honor, the tribal chiefs had warriors fill the entrance to the cavern with brush and then set it on fire in a bid to force the giants out of the cave. The few that did emerge were instantly slain with volleys of arrows. The giants that remained inside the cavern were asphyxiated. Later, an earthquake rocked the region and the cave entrance collapsed leaving only enough room for bats to enter it and make it their home.
Thousands of years later the cave was rediscovered and found to be loaded with bat guano almost 6-feet deep. Decaying bat guano becomes saltpeter, the chief ingredient of gunpowder, and was very valuable. Therefore, in 1911 a company was created specifically to mine the guano. As the mining operation progressed, skeletons and fossils were found. The guano was mined for almost 13 years before archaeologists were notified about the findings. Unfortunately, by then many of the artifacts had been accidentally destroyed or simply discarded. Nevertheless, what the scientific researchers did recover was staggering: over 10,000 artifacts were unearthed including the mummified remains of two red-haired giants. Even in the shrunken mummified condition the skeletons ranged in height from 8 feet to just under 12 feet. Many of the artifacts (but not the giants) can be viewed at the small natural history museum located in Winnemucca, Nevada.
A member of the Treasures of Utah forum website, went to the museum to see if they had indeed the giant remains:
I just happened to be in the neighborhood, in Winnemucca that is, so I stopped by the museum to see if they really did have a giant skull there. Turns out they have 4! There are not on display, however. I first searched the museum for them & when I only found a few artifacts by the Lovelock Cave exhibit I asked the elderly lady there who was watching the museum if there were any large skulls found with those artifacts. She smiled & said that she did certainly know about them & led me to a storage room just next to her office, where she opened up a cabinet on the wall & showed me 4 large skulls. She told me that people come from all over the world to that little museum in Winnemucca just to ask about these giant skulls, and that they aren’t allowed to display them openly because “the state does not recognize them.” I asked her where the rest of the remains were & she said that the bodies to those skulls & the bodies with red hair were taken to Berkeley a long time ago for examination, and are also not publicly displayed.
He posted those two pictures of the skulls (there is quarter at the bottom of one of the skulls for comparison:
The following article appeared in the German newspaper, BILD.de, 02.03.2016. Somebody came across a mummified finger that is so large that it would have belonged to an extremely tall person.
38 cm long! BILD.de shows exclusive photos
The secret of horror finger from Egypt
Have you ever heard of the enigmatic find of a giant creature?
By Damian Imöhl
Cairo / Basel – What on earth is THAT? In the photo you can see a gigantic creepy finger. It is immediately recognizable, but you still need to look twice. It seems to be chopped off finger bone as if done by a hatchet. And very, very old. Mummified. In places it crumbles. Torn, leathery skin. A split, loose nail. Yes, indeed, the eerie relic seems to be a finger. But huge, 38 centimeters long. What secret is there behind it?
BILD.de tells the captivating story of a strange discovery in Egypt. Very few people have ever seen the photos of the finger that were taken in 1988, in the country of pharaohs and pyramids. BILD.de shows them for the first time and exclusively in Germany.
The photographer is Gregor Spörri (56), a well-known disco entrepreneur from Basel in Switzerland. His empire includes the “Mad Max”, a cult store where celebrated stars of FC Basel gather, as well as David Beckham and Stephanie of Monaco. His second passion has changed his life: Egypt! On the last day of a private research-vacation in Egypt in 1988, he came into contact with an old man who belonged to a grave robber family. About 100 kilometers northeast of Cairo he went to a the meeting in a farmhouse in the village of Bir Hooker. For $ 300 Spörri could take a look at the unsaleable family treasure of the grave robber.
The bones were wrapped in old rags and leather. Spörri to BILD.de: “It was an long package, and it smelled musty. I was flabbergasted when I saw the dark brown relic. I was allowed to take it into my hand and photograph it, and I put a money bill next to it in order to compare it in size. “The bent finger was cracked and covered with dried mold. “It was surprisingly light, maybe a few hundred grams. My heart beat went to the neck. That was incredible. In terms of size, a matching body would have to be about five meters tall … ” [that is 16.5 feet!]
The grave robbers even showed the Swiss man a certificate of authenticity and an x-ray. Both from the 60s. “The grave robbers implored all in the name of Allah. But they would not sell the finger. It was too important to him and his family … “
Today Spörri regretted that he then flew home with only the photos. For years he was intrigued by the find. Scientists were not interested in this find, they said it was impossible. “The relic does not fit into their theories”, the discoverer says to BILD.de. He did not want to put blame on the experts, and he let the story rest. In 2009 he went back to look for the the old Arab man and the relic. But he could not find him in Bir Hooker…
Spörri did some research about the relic, and read about myths of giants. He also went to the Pyramids of Giza, in which are huge but unfinished sarcophagi, much too large for human …
Were there giants in Egypt? The Roman historian Flavius Josephus 79 AD wrote about such beings in his history of the Jewish war: “There were giants. Much larger and shaped differently than normal people. Terrible to witness. Who has not seen them with his own eyes, can not believe that they have been so immense.”
All theory. Fact: The bones that were found are now missing. “Disco King” Spörri decided in 2008 to start a new life, and he gave up his job to put the enigmatic discovery in his latest book “The Lost God. Day of Doom,” a mystery thriller in which the relic shows up, and a fictional story is told to solve the mystery. The reality is different: “I’m not a scientist,” the author says honestly. “I have written the relic into the novel to make it deliberately evade the scientific approach. Readers should look at it themselves and form their own opinion.”
Maybe a new horror finger will show up. And experts who want to investigate the history and solve the mystery of Bir Hooker …
Old newspaper Stories:
This is a well-known picture, and story of the discovery, of a giant mummy that apparently was published in the newspapers at the time. The earlier written record we still have is in the book Traces of the elder faiths of Ireland; a folklore sketch; a handbook of Irish pre-Christian traditions by Wood-Martin, W. G. (William Gregory), 1847-1917. On page 57-58 he reproduced the article and picture of the giant:
Kirby, in his Wonderful (and Eccentric Museum), published in 1820, devotes a chapter to a description of ” Gigantic Remains,” and states that ” all the public prints make mention of an extraordinary monument of gigantic Iniman stature, found by two labourers in Leixlip Churchyard, on the 10th July, 1812. It appeared to have belonged to a man of not less than ten feet in height, and is believed to be the same mentioned by Keating — Phelim O’Tool, buried in Leixlip Churchyard, near the Salmon Leap, one thousand two hundred and fifty years ago. In the place was found a large finger-ring of pure gold. There were no inscriptions or characters of any kind upon it. One of the teeth is said to have been as large as an ordinary forefinger. This was probably another discovery of mammoth bones.
The following is an extract from the Strand Magazine December, 1895 edition: let the reader judge as to the genuineness of the fossilized Irish giant, which is thus described:
Pre-eminent among the most extraordinary articles ever held by a railway company is the fossilized Irish giant, which is at this moment lying at the London and North-Western Railway Company’s Broad street goods depot, and a photograph of which is reproduced here (fig. 16). This monstrous figure is reputed to have been dug up by a Mr. Dyer whilst prospecting for iron ore in County Antrim. The principal measurements are: entire length, 12 ft. 2 in.; girth of chest, 6 ft. 6 in.; and length of arms, 4 ft. 6 in. There are six toes on the right foot. The gross weight is 2 tons 15 cwt.; so that it took half a dozen men and a powerful crane to place this article of lost property in position for the Strand magazine artist. (Strand Magazine December 1895, C.F. Wood-Martin, 1901:58) Dyer, after showing the giant in Dublin, came to England with his queer find and exhibited it in Liverpool and Manchester at sixpence, sixpence a head, attracting scientific men as well as gaping sightseers”. Business increased and the showman persuaded a man named Kershaw to purchase a share in the company. In 1876 Dyer sent his giant from Manchester to London by rail, at the cost of £4 2s and 6d, being charged for the carriage by the company, but never paid. Evidently Kershaw knew nothing of the removal of the show, for when he discovered it, he followed in hot pursuit, and through a firm of London solicitors, moved the Court of Chancery to issue an order restraining the company from parting with the giant, until the action between Dyer and himself; to determine the ownership, was disposed of. The action, was never brought to trial. Unfortunately (as far as this writer knows), nothing more was ever heard of the Antrim giant or its owners again.
The following picture is from the book:
Pine Grove was a gold mining camp/town from 1866 to 1930.
A human bone found belonging to a giant who would have been 25 feet tall! From an old newspaper article, The Columbian (Bloomsburg, Pa.), March 16, 1888, Page 2:
In the book The history and antiquities of Allerdale Ward, above Derwent, in the county of Cumberland: with biographical notices and memoirs by Samuel Jefferson, 1842, there is mention of the find of a 13.5 feet (4 meters) tall giant in 1601 in Cumberland (in North-West England). The following is copy of the book, at page 330-331:

A teenage giant of 7 feet and an adult giant of 11 feet tall. From the newspaper Freeman’s Journal (Sydney, NSW, Australia), Saturday 3 January 1891, page 21:
This news article originally appeared in the Sauk Rapids Sentinel on Dec. 18, 1868, and was taken up in other newspaper too. Source
One of the skeletons was 11 feet 1 inch.
Note that is was found at a depth of fifty feet, so it must be very ancient.
