People of Africa have memories of the giants who once lived on Earth. African legends describe these powerful beings as brave men who had shining eyes. They were very strong and their voices could be heard from one town to another. A legend tells that:
"They wandered without let or hindrance to places where no man had ever been before. One could not look them in the face because their eyes were so bright that it hurt one's own eyes to look at them. It was like looking at the sun."We know that myths and legends of every culture contain important elements of truth. Legendary giants are also an important part in the mythology, but they are definitely not a myth. One of the most puzzling archaeological mysteries has been discoveries of giant prehistoric human skeletons.
A perfectly formed giant's footprint imprinted in granite was discovered in 1912 by a farmer called Stoffel Coetzee while hunting in what was called the Eastern Transvaal, South Africa.
Their remains scattered worldwide have been unearthed but the evidence of them has been hidden and neglected for years. Otherwise, why have remains of humans, who unmistakably were gigantic in size, been found if such persons never existed?
|The footprint that over the years has been also called by other names like 'Big Fool' to 'Goliath's footprint' and sometimes even referred to 'Adam' or 'footprint of God' can be found in an outcrop of the Mpuluzi batholith, dated to around 3.1 billion years old.|
The footprint is about 1.2 meters or 4 feet long and the giant that lived in a time, which is lost in the mists of time, would have been between 7 and 7.5 meters tall.
The imprint of her foot, which is now so prominently displayed on the side of this hill, was made as she ran across an open piece of ground that was covered with warm lava ash and that is how the footprint came to be in granite. However, the shape of the rock around what look like toe markings does suggest that a giant foot could have pulled up the material like soft mud.
South African author and explorer Michael Tellinger and Austrian artifacts researcher Klaus Dona visited the giant footprint in South Africa in 2012. The print can be comparable to giant bones Dona came across in a valley in the south of Ecuador in 1964.
In the Native American legends we find references to various types of giants. We learn for example that there were black-, blond-, and red-haired giants. There are accounts of incredible beings of immense height, sometimes even up to 30 feet.
Still, most North American giants ranged from 7 to 12 feet in height.
In the 1800s, several remarkable seven feet tall skeletons were discovered in a burial mound in Pennsylvania. The skulls had horns above the eye-brows. The bones of the giants were sent to the American Investigating Museum in Philadelphia and they mysteriously disappeared.
Ten skeletons "of both sexes and of gigantic size" were taken from a mound at Warren, Minnesota, 1883. (St. Paul Pioneer Press, May 23, 1883)A skeleton 7 feet 6 inches long was found in a massive stone structure that was likened to a temple chamber within a mound in Kanawha County, West Virginia, in 1884. (American Antiquarian, v6, 1884 133f.
Cyrus Thomas, Report on Mound Explorations of the Bureau of Ethnology, 12th Annual Report, Smithsonian Bureau of Ethnology, 1890-91).
In 1885, American Antiquarian, v7, 1885, reported a discovery of a giant skeleton measuring seven feet two inches, in a large Indian mound near the town of Gasterville, Pa. His hair was coarse and jet black, and hung to the waist, the brow being ornamented with a copper crown. The skeleton was remarkably well preserved. Near it were also found the bodies of several children of various sizes, the remains being covered with beads made of bone of some kind. Upon removing these, the bodies were seen to be enclosed in a net-work of straw or reeds, and beneath this was a covering of the skin of some animal.
On the stones which covered the vault were carved inscriptions, and these when deciphered, will doubtless lift the veil that now shrouds the history of the race of people that one time inhabited this part of the American continent. The relics have been carefully packed and forwarded to the Smithsonian Institute…"

Bancroft’s Native Races, 1882, wrote:
“Mr. Taylor heard from a resident of San Buenaventura that “ in recent stay on Santa Rosa Island, in 1861, he often met with entire skeletons of Indians in the caves. The signs of their rancherias were very frequent, and the remains of metates, mortars, earthen pots, and other utensils, and other utensils very common.In 1885, miners discovered the mummified remains of woman measuring 6 feet 8 inches tall holding an infant. The mummies were found in a cave behind a wall of rock in the Yosemite Valley.
Extensive caves were met with which seemed to serve as burial places of the Indians, as entire skeletons and numerous skulls were plentifully scattered about in their recesses.” Some very wonderful skulls are also reported as having been found on the islands, furnished with double teeth all the way round the jaw.”Near Comox, one hundred and thirty miles northwest of Victoria, a group of mounds were examined in 1872-3, and found to be built of sea sand and black mold, mixed with some shells. They were from five to fifty yards in circumference. In one by the side of a very large skull was deposited a piece of coal; and in another with a very peculiar flattened skull was a child’s tooth..."
In Minnesota, 1888, were discovered remains of seven skeletons 7 to 8 feet tall. (St. Paul Pioneer Press, June 29, 1888).
A mound near Toledo, Ohio, held 20 skeletons, seated and facing east with jaws and teeth "twice as large as those of present day people," and besides each was a large bowl with "curiously wrought hieroglyphic figures." (Chicago Record, Oct. 24, 1895; cited by Ron G. Dobbins, NEARA Journal, v13, fall 1978).
The skeleton of a huge man was uncovered at the Beckley farm, Lake Koronis, Minnesota; while at Moose Island and Pine City, bones of other giants came to light. (St. Paul Globe, Aug. 12, 1896).
According to one Native American legend, prior to 1,000 B.C. the Ohio Valley was ruled by a powerful group of giants named the Ronnongwetowanca who occupied plenty of land for a long time. However, the Ronnongwetowanca giants were later wiped out by the Adena people, who appeared in this region around this time. They were tall and dominant beings.
It is believed they were the ones, who introduced mound building in the Ohio Valley.
It seems clear that the Adena people were intruders in the Ohio Valley, representing not merely a new cultural tradition but a new physical stock. The Archaic inhabitants of the region were mainly long-headed, with narrow skulls and slender bodies... The Adena folk were quite different, [having] a large round skull, prominent forehead, heavy brow ridges, jutting chin, and massive bones. The Adena folk were unusually tall; bones of women over six feet in height and men approaching seven feet have been discovered.This band of people of great majesty and size forced its way into the Ohio Valley about 1000 b.c., ... Perhaps there was a small elite of round-headed giants dominating and ruling an existing long-headed Ohio Valley population. But the question remains: where did the mound-building Adenas come from? (From: Robert Silverberg, The Mound Builders (Athens, Ohio University Press, 1968), 194-195.)The evidence of giants in North America is extensive. There have been many reports on giant skeletons found inside the mounds of America.
"In 1829, when the hotel was built in Chesterville, a mound nearby was made to furnish the material for the brick. In digging it away, a large human skeleton was found, but no measurements were made. It is related that the jaw-bone was found to fit easily over that of a citizen of the village, who was remarkable for his large jaw. The local physicians examined the cranium and found it proportionately large, with more teeth than the white race of today. The skeleton was taken to Mansfield, and has been lost sight of entirely." - History of Morrow County and Ohio, 1880 reported.
Henry Howe's Howe's Historical Collections of Ohio, Vol II, Part 1, published in 1907, reported as follows:
"In Seneca township (Noble County, Ohio) was opened, in 1872, one of numerous Indian mounds that abound in the neighborhood. This particular one was locally known as the "Bates" mound. Upon being dug into it was found to contain…remains of three skeletons, whose size would indicate they measured in life at least eight feet in height. The remarkable feature of these remains was they had double teeth in front as well as in back of the mouth and in both upper and lower jaws. Upon exposure to the atmosphere the skeletons soon crumbled back to mother earth."
Frederic de Rougemont wrote in his work" Histoire de la Terre" as follows:
"... all those skeletons found in the Department of the Gard, in Austria, Liege etc, etc... those skulls which remind all of the Negro type ... and which by reason of that type might be mistaken for animals, have all belonged to men of very high stature..."
