1912: 18 giant skeletons were found in Lake Delavan area in Wisconsin.
Source: "First reported in the 4 May 1912 issue of the New York Times, the 18 skeletons found by the Peterson brothers on Lake Lawn Farm in southwest Wisconsin exhibited several strange and freakish features. Their heights ranged between seven and nine feet and their skulls "presumably those of men, are much larger than the heads of any race which inhabit America to-day."
Above the eye sockets, "the head slopes straight back and the nasal bones protrude far above the cheek bones. The jaw bones are long and pointed, bearing a minute resemblance to the head of the monkey. The teeth in the front of the jaw are regular molars."
In fact, this wasn't the first find in Wisconsin, in 1851, there were others. This was not a one-time hoax of any kind. This area had pyramidal structures and examples of up to 200,000 citizens at one time, a burgeoning civilization of giants.
Source: On 20 December 1897, the Times followed up with a report on three large burial mounds that had been discovered in Maple Creek, Wisconsin. One had recently been opened. "In it was found the skeleton of a man of gigantic size. The bones measured from head to foot over nine 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." (NOTE: Wisconsin had copper mining long ago by which the local Natives reported were not their mining, but done by the white men who were there before them. *For more info, see my post listed on the right hand side under popular posts about the copper-mining giants)
The spectrum of Mound builder history spans a period of more than 5,000 years (from 3400 BCE to the 16th CE), a period greater than the history of Ancient Egypt and all of its dynasties.
(Check this fellow above's brow ridge - prominent, hmm?)
Blog Author's note: I truly believe that these people were evolved before us by hundreds of thousands of years and homo sapiens around the world got their influences for language, architecture, spirituality, mining and more from their already far advanced knowledge, in which we find that languages from other countries appear to be in America but that is because other languages were based on the giants' language so they look similar. I also believe that we will have to rethink who we credit with certain structures and technology when it may not be their find but something we are accrediting to homo sapiens when it was not we who did these things so long ago.
Interestingly, if you look up Ft. Aztalan on Wikipedia and other sites, no mention is made of the skeletons or the size or shape of the occupants. I ran into the same thing at Moundsville in WV where the museum offered no references. They work hard to tell a history of the occupants being Native Americans in the years of 100s AD and not before then. So, all things at these sites are attributed to local tribes, whether it was theirs or not, kind of like if someone found ancient native works in America and attributed them to the Europeans who arrived later and lived on the lands.
Once again, if you go to a state park like this, you will find no references to the people unearthed there or their oddities. It is all polished, clean, and presented in a history that they want you to hear, so don't expect to find any knowledge except to walk the mounds and look at some artifacts they deem presentable.
