Extinct giant America

In 1978, during the excavation of a hill in Ashtabula County, Ohio (USA), archaeologists have made a surprising discovery. They found an unusually large human skull. The size of his was that a grown man could wear this skull on his head, like a helmet. And if the current findings are extremely rare, in the XIX and XX century, the first half of the remains of the giants in the U.S. are far more often.

Though the theme is not new …

Itself subject such finds to the modern reader is not new. On the findings of an unusually large and it is very ancient human bones can be, for example, to read in the translated works of Brad Steiger "Archaeological finds that changed history" or Michael Baigent "Forbidden Archaeology". But recently, on the Internet material came Andrew Sklyarov, containing a large number of new facts, some of which we present in this article.
In 1833, during excavation work on a ranch Lompoc, California, workers came across a human skeleton growth of over 3.5 meters. Were found near the big stone axes and other artifacts. Giant skull had two rows of teeth on the upper and lower jaws. Local Indians demanded not disturb giant, and therefore had to bury bones.

As many as three people skeleton growth of about 2.4 meters, also had two rows of teeth on the jaws, were discovered in 1872 in Mound (burial hill) located near the town of Seneca, Ohio.
In 1885, in a respectable publication, "American art dealer" was published a very interesting article about the fact that a group of researchers from the Smithsonian Institution revealed large Mound near Pennsylvania town Gastervil and found it rude vaulted crypt. There rested the core adult growth 2.18 meters and several children's skeletons.

Skeletal remains were covered with reed mats. On the head of the adult skeleton wore a copper crown, and the remains of children decorated bone beads. But most interesting was the fact that the vault was discovered tomb inscription cryptic icons. In a note saying that it is one of the greatest discoveries of our time, which should lead to a revision of the ancient history of the continent. But nothing like that happened. The finds were carefully packed and shipped to the Smithsonian. About their fate is not known.

Difficult fate finds

It should be noted that the fate of these findings often were far from the best way. In 1879, during excavations near Breversvilya maund, Indiana, was found a human skeleton rise 2.95 meters. On the breast of the skeleton lay a necklace of mica. Archeologists removed the skeleton out of the ground and left on a nearby mill. There he unsold until 1937 and was lost in a flood.

In 1891, in the town of Crittenden, Arizona, working in construction house foundations at a depth of 2.5 meters stumbled on a stone sarcophagus. Hardly able to move its cover. Inside was the skeleton of an increase of about 2.75 meters, which is at the opening of the sarcophagus literally crumbled to dust …
However, even if not the remains of the giant fell into the hands of the workers, but to the men of science, it does not guarantee them a light fate — even in the twentieth century.

In 1947 he was made an interesting discovery in the geological province of the valley and the ridge that stretches from southern Nevada, through the famous Death Valley California to Arizona. In this vast area they found 32 caves. Some contain archaeological remains. In one of these caves in the wilderness of Colorado Dr. Bruce Russell and Dr. Daniel Bowie found several well-preserved mummies of men increased from 2.4 to 2.75 meters. Andrew

Sklyarov said that the mummies were dressed in some sort of jackets and pants to his knees. The clothes were made from the skin of gray, owned by the animal of unknown species. The subsequent fate of these findings, alas, is not known.
In the 60's of last century, the famous scholar and writer Ivan T. Sanderson in a TV show announced earlier he had received a letter from one of Alan Makshira, during the Second World War, he worked as an engineer in the construction of the runway on the island of Shemya, part of the Aleutian Islands ridge . Alan Makshir wrote that workers have opened one of the hills and found some huge fossilized skull and vertebrae and leg bones to match them.

Height of skull that had traces of lifetime intentional deformation reached 58 centimeters, width — 30, the same jaw had the familiar feature — a double row of teeth. At each vertex of the skull in the top is a neat round hole — the result of trepanation. Tibial length ranged from 150 to 180 centimeters, so that the growth of these giants in life could not exceed five meters. Makshir reported that all the skeletal remains were collected and removed the staff of the Smithsonian Institution. About their future to him, unfortunately, is not known. It seems that finding was sentenced to oblivion, as well as discovered in 1923 in the famous Grand Canyon human skeletons height 4.57 and 5.49 m.
Interestingly, while some of the giants of the skeletons found were found copper weapons and armor, which is clearly not peculiar to Indians.

But the most ancient giants mass grave was discovered in August 1871, near the small town Cayuga, about 80 kilometers west of Niagara Falls, which is then reported the Daily Telegraph. In simple pit to a depth of one and a half to two meters were buried about 200 giant two-, three-meter growth. When they were found stone axes, tomahawks with stone tops and huge pipes. Daniel Fredinburga neighbors, ranch, in which there were graves, rummaged his land, hoping to find gold and silver. Therefore he thought it best to fill the place of excavation.
New research in the future was not conducted.

Silent about the findings of the remains of American giants would have been even better if the Indians kept their traditions. Once their ancestors lived in the vicinity of the unknown giants. Some Indian tribes, formerly living in the Ohio River Valley, preserved oral histories that to them the lands occupied two more ancient race, "ancient" and Aden. The "old" people were tall with slender bodies and elongated heads. Aden were significantly lower than their growth, had a massive body and a rounded head.
Aden came to the Ohio Valley later "ancient" and expelled them, winning the long war. Sioux and the Delawares a legend about a tribe of giants who had the tremendous growth and strength, but cowardly. The Indians called them "allegevi" and constantly at war with them.

According to legend, these giants were knocked out of their well-fortified city of five tribes of the Iroquois tribes Union.
The existence of this union historians date the XVI century. Defeated, the remnants of "allegevi" fled to Minnesota, where they were finally destroyed the Sioux.

On the meeting with an unusually high people wrote in their chronicles, and participants in the first penetrated into the territory of the modern United States expeditions Spanish conquistadors. Hernando de Soto, the first Europeans in the period from May 1539 to May 1542 at the head of 600 people passed through the south-eastern United States, described the numerous meetings with Aboriginal huge growth. On average, these Indians were up to 30 centimeters of the Spaniards, and their leaders have had more growth. The leader of the settlement Okalo had tremendous growth and incredible strength. Similarly described and named chief Tuscaloosa two feet towered over their own members are not small and has excellent proportions. When Tuscaloosa agreed to accompany troop de Soto in his long journey, he tried to pick up the horse, but none of the saddle horses could not bear the weight of the leader. Finally, he brought the strongest of draft horses, and Tuscaloosa was able to ride it. That's just his feet touched the ground at the same time.

Almost simultaneously with the de Soto expedition to the southwestern United States in search of the so-called "Seven Cities native character" organized another conquistador — Francisco Vasquez de Coronado. When they reached his land of modern Mexican province of Sonora, de Coronado identified a small group of soldiers to intelligence. Participant of the expedition of Pedro de Castañeda, in his book "Coronado Expedition" related: when the scouts returned, they brought with them a huge Indian growth. The highest of the Spaniards took out his to the chest. According to scouts, he had seen the rest of the coast Indians were even higher.
