– “…On May 3, 1912, the New York Times reported from Madison, Wis.: “Upon opening one large mound at Lake Lawn farm, 18 skeletons were discovered by the Phillips Brothers. The heads, presumably those of men, are much larger than the heads of any race which inhabit America today”
Did Giants Exist? Part 2: Where Are the Skeletons Now? – By Tara MacIsaac
Many newspaper clippings can be found from the 19th century, and trickling on into the 20th century, reporting on the discovery of full skeletons or bones that indicate a race of giant humanoids.
For example, on Dec. 19, 1897, the New York Times reported from Maple Creek, Wis.: “One of the three recently discovered mounds in this town has been opened. In it was found the skeleton of a man of gigantic size. The bones measured from head to foot over 9 feet and were in a fair state of preservation. The skull was as large as a half bushel measure. Some finely tempered rods of copper and other relics were lying near the bones.”
On May 3, 1912, the New York Times reported from Madison, Wis.: “Upon opening one large mound at Lake Lawn farm, 18 skeletons were discovered by the Phillips Brothers. The heads, presumably those of men, are much larger than the heads of any race which inhabit America today.”
It isn’t only Wisconsin that seemed a hotbed of giant-bone discovery. Ohio had many such reports from this time period, and large bones attributed to giants have been found up into Eastern Canada. Giant bones have allegedly been found all over the world.
In August 1890, The Popular Science News and Boston Journal of Chemistry reported a finding by anthropologist Georges Vacher de Lapouge at the Bronze Age cemetery of Castelnau-le-Lez, France. Lapouge had found unusually large human humerus bones.
The journal wrote: “If we judge of the height of this neolithic giant by the usual proportion of the parts of the skeleton to each other, he must have been between 10 and 11 feet high. The question remains whether this excessive growth was a normal one, or due to a diseased condition … On this point the authorities differ, one professor of the University of Montpellier holding that the bones are normal in every respect, while another finds evidence of a diseased condition.”

It also reported that there was a tradition among the local peasants that a giant once lived in a nearby cave. At least in this case, the giant myth may have some truth to it.
These are just a few cases representative of many others. So if all these bones were found, why aren’t they being studied by modern scientists and definitively proven to be giant bones or something else?
Author of the book “A Tradition of Giants,” Douglas Ross Hamilton suggests the following among the reasons these bones are not being studied today.
1. Bones Disintegrated
When the bones made contact with oxygen, some quickly turned to dust. Some were already almost disintegrated by the time they were discovered. Hamilton wrote: “Many skeletal remnants uncovered by early settlers, antiquarians, collectors, and museum officials were already of such apparent antiquity that they had already returned to the consistency of the earth, leaving but an outline or less.”
2. Native American Grave Protection
The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) resulted in the reburial of some bones that had been unearthed and prevented the unearthing of others. NAGPRA was intended to preserve the sacred nature of Native American burial rights and to respect the belief that the remains of ancestors should not be disturbed.
Hamilton wrote: “The museums that once claimed the larger bones in their itinerary no longer respond to requests for such unusual remains except in a fashion of denial. … it is as though they never existed.”
He looked at the history of the Smithsonian, noting in particular the control anthropologist Ales Hrdlicka demanded in shaping the view of Native American history when he became curator of the Division of Physical Anthropology in 1910.
For example, Hrdlicka was adamantly opposed to any view that humans arrived in North America more than a few thousand years ago. Hamilton explained: “The Harvard faculty geologist Kirk Bryan (1888-1950) once advised his students that during the ‘reign’ of Hrdlicka, ‘if you ever find evidence of human life in a context which is ancient, bury it carefully, but do not forget about it.’”

In 2009, an Associated Press article reviewed some of Hrdlicka’s strange behavior. The article was about the reburial of Northern Mexico’s Yaqui Indians, who were killed in a 1902 massacre by Mexican federal troops. The article stated: “As if the horror of the massacre weren’t enough, U.S. anthropologist Ales Hrdlicka came upon some of the bodies while they were still decaying, hacked off the heads with a machete and boiled them to remove the flesh for his study of Mexico’s ‘races.’”
Hrdlicka had also dumped an infant’s corpse, taking the baby carrying-board underneath it and the blood-spattered blankets to the museum. The museum told AP that “cultural sensitivities and values within the museum community have changed” since Hrdlicka’s era. Hrdlicka also made significant contributions, including developing the theory that native Americans came from Asia across the Bering Strait.
Archaeologist Dr. Warren King Moorehead, a contemporary of Hrdlicka’s, had taken an interest in giants. Dr. Moorehead was a respected scholar of the time, he was even offered a political appointment in Indian relations by Teddy Roosevelt. The Smithsonian purchased purported giant bones Moorehead was studying. But, Hamilton wrote: “The Smithsonian today is unable to account for these and many other remains and artifacts.”
He wrote: “Instead of diffusing knowledge, it [the Smithsonian] has steadfastly refused to allow its vaults to be opened to scholars from other museums, state and local institutions, and any independent research—especially if the intent is to search out anomalies.”
4. Crushed, Thrown Away
As settlers developed America, mounds were flattened and careful archaeological excavation was not common. Some of the bones were likely displayed as curiosities, then disposed of.
Hamilton quoted the Proceedings of the New York Historical Society (1843): “…A vast deal is yet to be accomplished in this field, and it is to be hoped that an effort will be made to rescue from oblivion the monuments that yet remain in various parts of our country, of the existence of a great race of people, who are fast perishing. Ever[y] year these relics become less; the mounds and earth works of the west are leveled as the settlements are extended, and a few years will suffice to destroy those interesting memorials of a great and powerful nation.”
It is unclear whether “a great race” referred specifically to giants or to Native Americans, but the statement could nonetheless apply to giants if such a race existed.
Smithsonian Admits to Destruction of Thousands of Giant Human Skeletons in Early 1900’s
A US Supreme Court ruling has forced the Smithsonian institution to release classified papers dating from the early 1900’s that proves the organization was involved in a major historical cover-up.
The cover-up allegedly destroyed evidence showing giant human remains in the tens of thousands had been uncovered all across America.
The pieces of evidence were ordered to be destroyed by high-level administrators to “protect the mainstream chronology of human evolution at the time” according to the court ruling.
The allegations stemming from the American Institution of Alternative Archeology (AIAA) that the Smithsonian Institution had destroyed thousands of giant human remains during the early 1900’s was not taken lightly by the Smithsonian who responded by suing the organization for defamation and trying to damage the reputation of the 168-year old institution.
During the court case, new elements were brought to light as several Smithsonian whistleblowers admitted to the existence of documents that allegedly proved the destruction of tens of thousands of human skeletons reaching between 6 feet and 12 feet in height, a reality mainstream archeology cannot admit to for different reasons, claims AIAA spokesman, James Churchward.
There has been a major cover up by western archaeological institutions since the early 1900’s to make us believe that America was first colonized by Asian peoples migrating through the Bering Strait 15,000 years ago, when in fact, there are hundreds of thousands of burial mounds all over America which the Natives claim were there a long time before them, and that show traces of a highly developed civilization, complex use of metal alloys and where giant human skeleton remains are frequently found but still go unreported in the media and news outlets» he explains.

A turning point of the court case was when a 1.3-meter long human femur bone was shown as evidence in court of the existence of such giant human bones.
The evidence came as a blow to the Smithsonian’s lawyers as the bone had been stolen from the Smithsonian by one of their high-level curators in the mid-1930’s who had kept the bone all his life and which had admitted on his deathbed in writing of the undercover operations of the Smithsonian.
It is a terrible thing that is being done to the American people,» he wrote in the letter.
We are hiding the truth about the forefathers of humanity, our ancestors, the giants who roamed the earth as recalled in the Bible and ancient texts of the world».
The US Supreme Court has since forced the Smithsonian Institution to publicly release classified information about anything related to the “destruction of evidence pertaining to the mound builder culture” and to elements “relative to human skeletons of greater height than usual”, a ruling the AIAA is extremely enthused about.
The public release of these documents will help archaeologists and historians to reevaluate current theories about human evolution and help us greater our understanding of the mound builder culture in America and around the world» explains AIAA director, Hans Guttenberg.
Finally, after over a century of lies, the truth about our giant ancestors shall be revealed to the world» he acknowledges, visibly satisfied by the court ruling.
The documents are scheduled to be released in 2020 and the operation will be coordinated by an independent scientific organization to assure political neutrality.
