In 1978, while excavating a hill in Ashtabula County, state Ohio (USA), archaeologists made an unexpected find. They discovered unusually large human skull. Its size was such that an adult man could put this skull on his head like a helmet. And if at present such finds are extremely rare, then in XIX and the first half of the XX century, the remains of giants in the United States were found where more often.
Although the topic is not new …

In itself, the topic of such finds for the modern reader is not new. On the finds of unusually large and at the same time very ancient human bones can, for example, be read in translation works Brad Steiger “Archaeological Finds That Changed History” or Michael Bagent “Forbidden Archeology”. But recently in the vast Internet has appeared material of Andrey Sklyarov, containing a large the number of new facts, some of which we will cite in this article. In 1833, during earthworks at the Lompoc Ranch, California, workers stumbled upon a human skeleton with a height of more than 3.5 meters. Beside large stone axes and other artifacts were found. Skull the giant had two rows of teeth on the upper and lower jaws. Local Indians demanded not to disturb the peace of the giant, and bones had to bury again. Three skeletons of people about 2.4 in height meters, also having two rows of teeth on the jaws, were found in 1872 in the mound (burial hill), not far from Seneca, Ohio. In 1885, in a solid edition “American Antiquarian” was published extremely interesting note that a group of researchers from Smithsonian Institute opened a large mound near the Pennsylvania town Gasterville also found in it a roughly made vaulted crypt. There rested the backbone of an adult 2.18 meters tall and several children’s skeletons. The bone remains were covered with reeds mats. On the head of the skeleton of an adult, a copper the crown, and the remains of children were decorated with bone beads. But the most interesting was that on the vault arch was found an inscription made mysterious icons. The note said that this is one of the greatest finds of modernity, which should lead to revising the ancient history of the continent. However, nothing like this happened. The finds were neatly packed and shipped to Smithsonian Institution. Nothing about their future fate it is known.
Difficult fate of finds

It is worth noting that the fate of such finds often develops. far from the best way. In 1879, during the excavation of the mound around Breversville, Indiana, a human skeleton was discovered growing 2.95 meters. On the chest of the skeleton lay a necklace of mica. Archaeologists they took out the skeleton from the ground and left it at a nearby mill. He is there stagnated until 1937 and was lost during the flood. In 1891 in Crittenden, Arizona, construction workers the foundation of the house at a depth of 2.5 meters stumbled upon a stone sarcophagus. With difficulty it was possible to move its cover. Turned inside a skeleton with a height of about 2.75 meters, which when opening the sarcophagus literally crumbled to dust … However, even if the remains of giants didn’t fall into the hands of the workers, but to learned men, this is by no means guaranteed them an easy fate – even in the twentieth century. In 1947 Interesting discoveries were made in the geological province of the Valleys and Ridges, which stretches from southern Nevada, through the famous California Death Valley, to Arizona. In this A vast territory, scientists discovered 32 caves. Some contained archaeological finds. In one of these desert caves Colorado Dr. Bruce Russell and Dr. Daniel Bowie found several well-preserved mummies of men from 2.4 to 2.75 meters tall. Andrey Sklyarov notes that the mummies were dressed in a kind of jackets and pants to the knees. The clothes were made of gray leather, owned by an animal of an unknown species. Further fate of these The finds, alas, are unknown. In the 60s of the last century, the famous scientist and writer Ivan T. Sanderson unveiled during a television show a letter he had previously received from a certain Alan McShire, in the years of the Second World War II worked as an engineer in construction ridge runway on the island of Chemya, part of the ridge Aleutian Islands. Alan McShire wrote that the workers uncovered one of hills and found several huge petrified skulls as well vertebrae and leg bones to match them. The height of the skulls that had traces intravital intentional deformation, reached 58 centimeters, and width – 30, but the jaws had a feature already familiar to us – double row of teeth. On the crown of each skull in the upper part there was a neat round hole – the result of trepanation. The length of the leg bones ranged from 150 to 180 centimeters, so the growth of these giants in life could exceed five meters. Makshire reported that all bone remains were collected and taken out employees of the Smithsonian Institution. About their future fate to him, unfortunately not known. It seems that the finds were sentenced to oblivion, as well as those discovered in 1923 in the famous Grand Canyon human skeletons 4.57 and 5.49 meters high. It is curious that with some found bones of giants copper weapons and armor were found, which is clearly not characteristic to the Indians. The most massive burial of ancient giants was discovered in August 1871 near the town of Kayuga, 80 kilometers west of Niagara Falls, which then reported Daily Telegraph newspaper. In simple pits from one and a half to two meters, about 200 giants of two were buried, three meter tall. When they were found stone axes, tomahawks with stone tops and huge pipes. Neighbors of Daniel Fredinburg, the owner of the ranch in whose territory there were burials, began to rummage in his lands in the hope of find gold and silver. Therefore, he considered it good to fall asleep excavations. No further studies were conducted there.

To keep silent about the finds of the remains of American giants would be even easier if the Indians did not keep their traditions. Once their ancestors lived in the neighborhood with unknown giants. Some Native American tribes formerly living in the Ohio River Valley survived oral stories that before them these lands were inhabited by two more ancient races: “ancient” and adena. Moreover, the “ancient” were high people with slender bodies and elongated heads. Adena were significantly shorter than their height, had more massive bodies and rounded heads. Adena came to the Ohio Valley later than the “ancients” and drove them away, winning a long war. Sioux and Delaware Indians saved legends about a tribe of giants with great growth and strength, but cowardly. The Indians called them “Alleghevy” and constantly fought with them. According to legend, these giants were knocked out of their well-fortified cities of the tribes of the union of the five Iroquois tribes. Existence of this Union historians date back to the 16th century. Defeated, leftovers “Alleghevy” fled to the territory of Minnesota, where they were finally destroyed by the Sioux Indians. About meeting with unusually high people wrote in their chronicles and the participants of the first Spanish expeditions that entered the territory of modern USA conquistadors. Hernando de Soto, the first of Europeans from May 1539 to May 1542 at the head of a detachment of 600 through and through passing the entire southeast of the United States, described repeated meetings with natives of tremendous growth. On average, these Indians were taller Spaniards by 30 centimeters, and their leaders had even greater growth. The leader of the Okalo settlement possessed tremendous growth and incredible strength. A leader named Tuscaloosa is described in the same way, half a meter towering above his not at all small tribesmen and possessed of excellent proportions. When Tuscaloosa agreed accompany the detachment de Soto in his further journey, he tried to pick up a horse, but not one of the riding horses could bear the leader’s weight. Finally, he brought the strongest of the draft horses, and Tuscaloosa was able to saddle her. Here are just his legs at the same time touched the ground. Almost simultaneously with the de Soto expedition to southwest USA in search of the so-called “seven cities of Sivola” organized by another conquistador – Francisco Vazquez de Coronado. When his squad reached the lands of the modern Mexican province Sonora de Coronado allocated a small group of soldiers for reconnaissance. Member of this expedition Pedro de Castañeda in his book The Coronado Expedition recounted: when the scouts returned, then brought with them an indian of great stature. The highest of the Spaniards reached him only to the chest. According to scouts, the rest the Indians they saw on the coast were even higher.
