Giants : Press reports from the 19th and 20th centuries
|Montpelier Skull as graphically reproduced|
In addition to the 1892 Yale discovered remains of the giants of Chatelnau on which we report in detail elsewhere, were in France or made during the 19th century other findings, which support the theory that even in Europe called up in the Bronze Age populations into gigantic human being was. Although these ancillary findings are less well documented than that of Castelnau-le-Lez , not nearly so numerous are such similar reports from North America  - and although even in these cases the finds in question were lost in the meantime - we want these remarkable Fund reports for the first time dokumenieren here in German language, since we made gigantologischer keep visual for quite evident. Compiled and presented for the first time online these historical reports were the way of the American colleagues Micah Ewers on its website worth visiting rephaim23 .
Let's start with a message that it after all that time managed, even in 'small-town Piety' The Oelwein Register in the U.S. town of Oelwein, Iowa to find attention. In their recent report (Fig. 10) of 8 November 1894, states:
Monpellier (Fig. 2) , France was exposed, while workers were digging a reservoir for a water plant, human skulls were (Fig. 1) found that 28, 31 and 32 inches [about 0.71 m - 0.79 m - 0.91 m; d.Ü.] . reasonably within the scope of the bones, which were found along with the skulls, were also of gigantic proportions These remains were sent to the Paris Academy, and a scholar. 'Savant', who gave a Lecture to the discovery, said that they belonged to a race of people who have a size between 10 and 15 feet [about 3.05 m to 4 57 m; d.Ü.] had. " 
Further evidence of a giant Fund (this time in northern France) provided - even if only in the form of an 'information snippet' - the Oswego Commercial Times in its issue of August 8, 1851. (Fig. 3) It stated under the heading "Skeleton of A Giant ":" Recently discovered a gentleman in the Nachbarchaft the old city [Reims], when he engaged in an excavation for any reason, a well-preserved human skeleton, the four-meter (13 feet) long. " 
Figure 3 The short message from the Oswego Commercial Times dated 08 Aug. 1851
This message corresponds remarkably well and the following somewhat detailed report of 1933, which also dealt with a detection in the vicinity of Paris. This report, entitled " Skeletons of Seven foot tall giants Neolithic "( skeletons seven-foot-tall giant Neolithic ) comes from the Freeport Journal Standard (Illinois), in its issue of 15 April 1933, stated: " Paris - (LP) - cooking, presumably to a man of seven feet [approximately 2.13 m; d.Ü.] have heard size, were in a Neolithic grave in the local outdoor areas [the outskirts of Paris; d.Ü.] Found one. report on the discoveries of archaeologists who work in the northwest suburbs, was from the Sorbonne issued.
Paul Lemoine (Fig. 5) , the Director of the Paris Museum of Natural History , M. Lantier, the curator of the Archaeological Museum in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Professor Rivet and other scholars have inspected the tomb and agreed that they is of sufficient interest to continue digging with more physical labor effort.
The at the Sorbonne report prepared about the discovery was before [the members of] Société de France préhistorique read. " 
This finding report containing its details and the mention of his time prominent franösischer professional scientists may well - in addition to the documents for the discovery of Castelnaut - to the interesting documents about the former existence of giants in France are, as it appears to be particularly evident and almost invites further investigation. However, the author is driving at the dark foreboding, such searches are established as a result, today none of the mentioned eight skeletons is more 'discoverable'.
Gap (Fig. 6) , the capital of the French department Hautes-Alpes in the south east of the Republic. We are talking about the discovery of the cemetery " of some ancient tribe of giants The skeletons, one of which is 8 feet 7 inches. [approximately 2.62 m; d.Ü.] dimension, were in sarcophagi, which were formed from flat stones . " 
A little more detail - and provided with further details - this discovery was already a few days earlier by the American magazine The Milwaukee Journal treated. (Fig. 7) In your issue of August 4, 1935, is the following report: " Paris, France - (UP) - Nine graves of prehistoric giants, whose largest 7 feet 10 inches [approximately 2.39 m; d.Ü.] dimension, were an article in the Petit Parisien According discovered by workers who a road below the town of Gap [...] build. The giants were buried in coffins made of flat stones, but there were no tools or weapons are found, indicating the period in which they lived. It was assumed that it to a hitherto unknown race belonged. " 
Geraldton Guardian and Express (Fig. 8) from Australia posted to another French discovery of giant skeletons in stone coffins, the following brief message: " Fourteen immense coffins from Slate, which date back to prehistoric times, are of navvies been unearthed which working on a new road, says the correspondent of the London Daily Mail in Grenoble (south of France).
The coffins were "as it goes on to say there," at a depth of 12 feet [about 3.66 m; d.Ü.] discovered, and when they were opened with great care, the skeletons of 14 men were unveiled by gigantic stature. In all cases, the heads of large size were [and] with enormous jawbone provided ". 
Stanstead Journal published in 1924. In your report (Fig. 11) it was namely not to Neolithic or copper or Bronze Age finds, but a discovery from the late Paleolithic period , which in Solutrense Pouilly was, that community of eastern France, after the primeval period of the ' Solutrean is' named. In this, the report dated January 31, 1924, states:
" Just being in Solutré (Fig. 8) , a small, well-known because of their prehistoric relics village in the French department of Côte-d'Or  the Enrdeckung 25,000 years old graves takes place, which include the well-preserved skeletons of three prehistoric warrior.
Over the past 60 years are at Solutré remarkable specimen was discovered by remnants of the prehistoric period, and a short time ago the Faculty of Sciences of Lyon, carry out a methodical and scientific search of the district decided on its own account. The first search turned out to be quite disappointing, but nothing desdotrotz the work was vigorously pursued, and after 20 days of patient effort, the responsible scientist for the expedition discovered the skeletons of three men who in the late Paleolithic or Aurignacian lived before 20000-25000 years.
stone circles ', which, it is believed, show the exact position taken by the body to complete.
The skeletons were proven extremely strong men, because the smallest of the three and six feet two inches [about 1.88 m; d.Ü.] dimension, while the largest six feet and nine inches [about 2.06 m; d.Ü.] . The shape of the skull is remarkable. The forehead is rather low. The eye sockets are rectangular and of großee dimension; the jaw bone is prominent and the jaws are powerful and still contain well-preserved teeth.
The skeletons are wonderfully preserved. The skull of one of them is intact, while the trunk and the limbs of another in perfect condition. Judging by the teeth after, were the skeletons to men over the age of twenty-four to twenty-seven years, probably died in battle, as a stone arrowhead is stuck in the head of one. - London Mail, " 
The latest to date known find report about relics of ancient French giants (the not quite so large type) dates from the year 1946 On March 22 of that year, the Canadian newspaper reported. Leader-Post of Regina (Saskatchewan), another discovery in the South of France " Paris, March 22 - Three human skeletons, each more than six feet and seven inches [about 2.00 m; d.Ü.] extent and dating back 2,000 years, are promoted in stone coffins of German prisoners of war to light been the near Avignon work in southern France, as here, the evening was reported yesterday. At the same place several urns were discovered with remains of prehistoric ages. " 
Let us leave now the final word Micah Ewers , who notes regarding one of the messages in summary: " All these reports can, when considered separately, as a anomalies or exaggerations of the press and> Tall Tales be explained away <However, if they and in retrospect. be seen in the light of scientific bone measurements of the giant of Castelnau, then they can actually make a strong, detailed substantiation of the true and physical reality that in ancient and prehistoric times certainly any> giant < France inhabited, and [although] in considerable populations, as opposed to an occasional here and there occur individuals.
