Giant Skeletons-Newspaper Accounts #2

 

At the top is an illustration of some skulls associated with the newspaper clipping following and the colour picture below it ro different Neanderthal skulls and a modern Homo sapiens skull, reading from left to right (I rearranged the skulls in the top photo to the second row so they would correspond better to the examples in the colour photo)eems that among these various reports of giant skulls and skeletons there are definite strains of both CroMagnons and Neanderthals, and then a category of mixed breeds with somewhat intermediate features. THe raw material of the mound builder giants seems to have come from some of the mixed types, because some of the mixed types were very large, at least as large as the CroMagnons (The modern human in the middle of the top photo is also an EXTREMELY largen skull, with an unusuallu large cranial capacity. Any one of these types can have a greater than normal sized cranial capacity in American skulls generally the large-moderns have the largest braincases)


 











200,00 years old is about right for Homo heidelbergensis, but they need not have been in North America that long. Louis Leakey suggested about half that old for the Calico Hill site and that might be better.









 



















 
The cross sign is very important to North American natives quite outside of the Spanish and it denotes the Four directions or Four winds. The skull is of the Old World CroMagnon type, the basic PaleoIndian.
These skulls are interesting because they illustrate three of Neumann's types of skulls: the one in back is the Archaic type of the Eastern Woodlands and has been compared to Iberiands and Western Europeans of the postglacial era. The skull on the left is of the Basketmaker type out of the Southwest USA and the type also goes back into the Archaic: this one has a markedly African character. The associations of the peoples in these two areas with the Iberians and North Africans is insisted on by Barry Fell: older books would have called the Basketmaker skull "Negroid" because this one is very pronouncedly African (Others are more nearly Mediterranean in type) The one very high head to the right in front is something out of one of the CroMagnon types, but it has become very short and high. In addition this individal had a form of artificial deformation apack of the head in an unusual slanting way-but this variation is also known to be the product of a specific type of artificial cranial deformation. This is a skull which is tending to be like the Adenas, and the Adenas are the ones that are most often at the base of "Giant Mound burial" stories. Female Adenas could average six feet tall or over and males at seven feet tall or over according to Robert Silverberg in the standard work The Mound Builders. antic individuals would go up from that point. Below is an Adena mound, mostsimilar to the conical mounds built in Europe by the more recent and shorter, high-headed population there. The culture that built Stonehenge also built conical mounds like this and they were remembered in Folklore as Giants.
Mordecai Rodnipoff III has provided the bulk of the material here, except for my comments on the skulls, which are an area of study I have specialised in. I do give him thanks and the credit for collecting the lippings. There are many, many more clippings like them on file.

  1. Hello, I stumbled across your blog while researching Rujm Al Hiri and was gobstruck. My working theory was that the Rephaim "giants" were priests masquerading as watchers or vultures during ceremonial excarnation. They would strap stilts to feet and cover the farce with long coats. I have seen other pictures of giant skeletons but assumed they were photoshopped. These newspaper accounts are hard to reconcile. Where are all of these skeletons?

    1. Hi Susan,
      That is an interesting theory for the Rephaim! I am aware some texts from Ugarit mention 'R'pum' or 'Rapiumu' who were lesser gods and Kings of Ugairt, Canaan and Bashan. The interesting thing is Ahstaroth and Edrei are thought to be mentioned in these texts, which as the Bible says was associated with the Rephaim King Og of Bashan.

      Rogem Hiri and many of these mgaliths may have a connection to the Rephaim, I am convinced.

      I have read one account of a 2 meter tall (6 ft 7) skeleton found in a stone grave at the Neolithic underwater site near Atlit in Israel in 1994. This may have been a chieftain.

  2. Allegedly, the skulls and skeletons are sent off to museums. Where apparently they go into some sort of a black hole and are forgotten forever. You would think museum workers would be publishing papers right and left on all of these remains because its pretty obvious when you are looking at such a thing as a modern-style human skull inflated to half again the cranial capacity or even more. A lot of people say "It's got to be a conspiracy!" but it seems that the most common that the paper trail only goes so far and stops, and there is no tracing of the specimens beyond the point where the (routine) security clamps down.

    There is also the possibility that some of the remains were returned to Native groups for reburial without any mention that the remains had unusual features, if there were any.

  3. Great Post Dale! Thank you for adding these to your blog. I have so many hundreds more, and many others I continue to find. I also think the Adena physical type is what is behind most of these reports, as Robert Silvergberg indicates. If all these news clippings were reserved only to the 1800's I would have some caution putting credence behind them, but we know now that Dr. Don Dragoo of the Carnegie museum measure giants in Adena mounds, for instance Cresap mound W. Virginia in 1958 a 7.2 feet tall male. And William Webb and Charles Snow of the Univ. of Kentucky record a 7 foot male, and women over 6 feet tall at Dover Mound in 1951, once again Adena. Dragoo writes that these massive bones are characteristic of the Adena from Ohio to Kentucky and W. Virginia. Although I don't put alot of credence in tales of men over 10 feet high, I think some of them did get that large if they were commonly exceeding 7 feet routinely. The Castelanu bones were estimated to belong to a man of 11 feet, although this was an approx. estimate based on incomplete and decayed limb bones , femur, humerus, and tibia.
