In 1911 several mummified remains of red
haired humans were found in Lovelock Cave
about 70 miles NE of Reno, Nevada. They
stood about 6.5 to 8 feet tall (2-2.5 metres)
and were mentioned in the local legends of
the Piute Indians of the area. Scientists
were reluctant to look at the bones, most of
which ended up being thrown away by
miners. A few, including this skull which is
almost a foot long,, is at the Nevada
Historical Society in Reno.
In 1856 a skeleton of a 10' 9"
human (3.28 metres) was found in
West Virginia while ploughing a
vineyard. Local law took the
skeleton and said it was a hoax
because 3 bullets had been found
in the skull. What this had to do
with anything or the rest of the
huge skeleton is anyone's guess.
In 1833 the skeleton of a man 12 feet
tall (3.6m) was unearthed by soldiers
digging a pit for a powder magazine in
Lompack Rancho, California. It had a
double row of teeth and was found
with a bonanza of huge stone axes,
carved shells and blocks with symbols
carved on them. The remains were
reburied and the location 'forgotten"
when the locals saw this as proof of
their "pagan" legends of giant gods.
In the 1800s in Pennsylvania,
several professors of the
Museum found the bones of 68
men, believed to have been
buried about 1200, in an Indian
Mound. The average height of
these men was 7 feet though
some were much taller. Atop
some of the skulls were
protuberances of bones,
apparently horns that had
grown there naturally. Though
several specimens were taken
to the Museum, they claim to
have no knowledge of them.
Found in Mexico in 1926, this skull is that of
an adult who lived to an old age. Unlike usual
birth or genetic "defect's, this skull is
perfectly formed and proportioned - showing
no abnormal thickening or anotomical
deofrmaties caused by it's odd shape...it is a
perfect skull of a being who lived and
functioned with this type of anatomy.
