Fossilized Irish Giant



12? 2? Irish Giant

Quote
This photo of a ‘fossilized Irish giant’ was taken at a London rail depot, and appeared in the December 1895 issue of Strand Magazine. The giant was allegedly dug up by a Mr Dyer while prospecting for iron ore in County Antrim (Ireland).

It was 12 ft 2 in (3.71 m) tall, weighed 2 tonnes, and had 6 toes on its right foot. After being exhibited in Dublin, it was brought to England and exhibited in Liverpool and Manchester at sixpence a head, ‘attracting scientific men as well as gaping sightseers’. After a legal dispute over ownership, nothing more appears to have been heard or seen of the exhibit.

Irish Giant - World Museum



Quote
An article from Strand magazine (December,1895) reprinted in “Traces of the Elder Faiths of Ireland” by W.G. Wood-Martin mentions this fossilized giant discovered during mining operations in County Antrim, Ireland: “Pre-eminent among the most extraordinary articles ever held by a railway company is the fossilized Irish giant, which is at this moment lying at the London and North-Western Railway Company’s Broad street goods depot, and a photograph of which is reproduced here. . . This monstrous figure is reputed to have been dug up by a Mr. Dyer whilst prospecting for iron ore in County Antrim. The principal measurements are: entire length, 12ft. 2in.; girth of chest, 6ft. 6in.; and length of arms, 4ft. 6in. There are six toes on the right foot. The gross weight is 2 tons 15cwt.; so that it took half a dozen men and a powerful crane to place this article of lost property in position for the Strand magazine artist. Dyer, after showing the giant in Dublin, came to England with his queer find and exhibited it in Liverpool and Manchester at sixpence, sixpence a head, attracting scientific men as well as gaping sightseers”.

Now the story gets weirder

Giant hoaxes

Quote
Back in 1869 in Cardiff New York, an avowed atheist named George Hull got into an argument with a preacher from a traveling revival show over whether or not the Bible should be read literally. The specific verse in question was Genesis 6:4. The preacher argued for the complete and absolute truth of the passage. Hull got an idea.

He secretly arranged for the carving of a 10 foot giant statue of himself which he buried on his brother-in-law's farm. On October 16, 1869 contractors hired to dig a well "discovered" the statue, and believers promptly declared it to be the fossilized remains of a biblical giant, proving the accuracy of Genesis 6:4

Hull and his brother-in-law were making a nice little side-income by charging believers 50 cents a head to view the "fossil" when investors offered them $30,000 for it so they could display it in Syracuse New York where larger crowds could be expected.

the Cardiff giant

Quote
PT Barnum was so impressed by how well the Syracuse exhibit was doing, he offered $60,000 just to borrow the "fossil" for three months. When he was turned down, he made a plaster copy which drew bigger crowds than the original.

Eventually, the Cardiff giant drew the attention of scientists and a Yale paleontologist examined it. Quickly finding clearly identifiable chisel marks in the stone which would not be present in a genuine fossil and which would have somewhat eroded in a long-buried ancient statue, he declared the giant to be a fake.

And yet, people continued to pay to see the biblical giant even though most now recognized it was all a hoax. The original can be seen to this day in the Farmers' Museum in Cooperstown and Barnum's copy is in Marvin's Museum near Detroit.

Now it gets even more unbelievable.

In 1895, a fossilized giant was apparently discovered in County Antrim, Ireland and shipped to London where it was photographed and the picture published in The Strand magazine. This giant was reportedly taller than the Cardiff Giant at over 12 feet. Somehow in spite of its size, the "Fossilized Irish Giant" managed to disappear shortly after this picture was taken.



Quote
Unfortunately, no scientist ever managed to examine this particular "fossil" before it was "lost." As a result, there are still those today who use the Irish Giant as clear and convincing evidence of the literal truth of Genesis 6:4 (Just do a web search on Fossilized Irish Giant.)

Three things to note:

    Look at the similarities of pose between the proven fake Cardiff Giant and the mysteriously missing Irish Giant. Does this not suggest that someone copied PT Barnum's idea of copying the Cardiff Giant?
    Does the perspective look right in this photograph? Is the "giant" really taller than that freight car in the background. Or is this a carefully selected camera angle to make a much smaller statue look immense? Is the photograph of the fake itself a fake?
    The Strand[1] was primarily a fiction magazine. It also published puzzles and brain-teasers.

And yet today there are those who believe the Irish Giant was real.

Standing Tall in the Land of Genghis Khan



Quote
During the first of five expeditions to Mongolia, Roy Chapman Andrews photographed this seven-foot-five-inch (2m 13cm) man in 1922 in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar—but that wasn’t the explorer’s biggest find. In an automobile caravan following the ancient routes of Genghis through the Gobi desert, Andrew’s party discovered one of the world’s richest dinosaur fossil fields, featured in the June 1933 and July 1996 issue of the GEOGRAPHIC.

“We ourselves are the ‘trail-breakers’ of motor transportation,” wrote Andrews. “Instead of thrilling with pride at the thought, I reflected sadly that we were violating the sanctity of the desert and destroying the mystery of Mongolia.”

This photograph was never published in the magazine.

Feodor Machnow



Quote
Feodor Machnow, (Fyodor Makhnov) was born in 1878 at the village of Kasciuki near Viciebsk (now Belarus). Though exact details concerning his birth and real height are uncertain, Machnow eventually grew to a stature of 7-ft-10 inches (2.39m) and a weight of 365 lbs.



As a young man in his twenties he toured Europe to exhibit his great height. After having spent time in Berlin he visited London in 1905 where he joined the Hippodrome accompanied by his wife and young child. He then toured the United States in 1906 where he met President Roosevelt. Throughout his tour his promoters exaggerated his height, and he is usually accredited with a stature of 9-feet-3 inches (2.82m) and billed as "The Russian Giant." On the obelisk it is still possible to read: "Feodor Machnow. Born June 6, 1878. Died August 28, 1912. Tallest man in the world. He was 254 centimetres tall". This index was taken from a 16-year old Feodor contract. But after 16 years of Feodor Machnow continued to grow, and added 31 cm, reaching 282 cm. Giant's wife, Efrosinja wanted to correct the incorrect figure on the monument, but was prevented from doing so because of the beginning of the First World War and then the Revolution. Unfortunately Machnow's wife could not verify this version. This exaggeration may have been because he wore a huge Cossack fur hat, and tall boots which added a foot to his height. Although, if this was accurate, he would have been taller than Robert Wadlow.

Machnow died in the year 1912 due to pneumonia and likely complications of Acromegaly although there are other versions of the story. Some believed he had been poisoned by rivals or envious competitors (Machnow was a rather well known wrestler), but no evidence for this is available. He was the father of four children none of whom reached a height greater than two meters.

Ella Kate Ewing - "The Missouri Giantess"


This is an image of a turn of the 20th century circus flyer used to promote Ella Ewing, considered the worlds tallest woman of her era. She died in 1913

Quote
Ella Kate Ewing (March 9, 1872 - January 10, 1913) was a Missouri woman considered the worlds tallest female of her era. She would use her great height to earn a living as a sideshow attraction, popularly known as "The Missouri Giantess."

Ella Ewing was born in La Grange, Missouri, the only child of Benjamin F. and Anna Eliza (Herring) Ewing. While a toddler, Ella's family moved to the small Scotland County community of Rainbow, southeast of Gorin, Missouri. She was of normal size while a baby and young child, with the first signs of any abnormality appearing shortly after her seventh birthday. At age fourteen she towered over not only other children but her parents and other adults, measuring 6 feet 10 inches. The people of the Rainbow and Gorin area were used to her fast growth and met it with compassion, however in 1885 Ella learned that would not always be the case in the world at large. Asked to read the Declaration of Independence at a July 4 celebration in Wyaconda, Missouri, Ella was met with shocked gasps, snickers and laughter when she stood to read. Led away in tears, the incident would have a profound effect on her life.

Ewing's maximum height is a matter of dispute, but in several accounts she was claimed to be over eight feet tall. Her mothers journal indicated that Ella's growth finally stopped when she was age twenty-two, at 8 feet, 4 inches tall. However, this is not well documented, and as such she is not mentioned in Guinness World Records. The Guinness Book of Records has stated she measured 7 feet 4 and a half inches tall, and may have reached 7 feet 6 inches by the time she died. As typical of many people afflicted with pituitary gigantism Ella's arms were very long, with her hands and feet exceptionally big. She wore a custom-made size 24 US shoe and often wore multiple rings on her fingers to mask their unusual length.

Quote
Anna Haining Bates, born Anna Haining Swan (August 6, 1846 – August 5, 1888), was a Canadian from Mill Brook, New Annan, (near present-day Tatamagouche), Colchester County, Nova Scotia, famed for her great height, believed to be 2.27 m (7' 5½") at the peak of her stature. Her parents were of average height and were Scottish immigrants.

Quote
While crossing the Atlantic Ocean for a European tour, Anna met Kentucky giant Martin Van Buren Bates. They married in England on June 17, 1871 and toured together as the world's largest married couple, giving command performances for Queen Victoria and the then Prince of Wales. Returning to North America, Anna's husband built them a house in Ohio with 14-foot ceilings and furniture made to measure. Though the couple had a daughter, and later a son, both children were abnormally large and neither infant survived. Anna died of tuberculosis in 1888.

Jakob Nacken - 7 feet 3.5 inches (222.3 cm)



Quote
Jakob Nacken was born in Dusseldorf, Germany in 1906. In the beginning of his touring career he was also known as Uranus. He came to the U.S. to appear at the 1939-40 New York World's Fair. When WWII broke out he answered his native country's call to arms and fought against the Allies. His capture in 1944 as the "biggest Nazi" made all the press throughout the U.S. He must have liked the States, though, as in 1949 he sailed here to take a job as "the world's largest Santa Claus" and eventually became a citizen. He was still finding work as the world's tallest man in 1959 when he appeared with Ripley's Odditorium on Broadway. Jakob Nacken was 81 years old when he died - somewhere in Europe.

Smithsonian Admits to Destruction of Thousands of Giant Human Skeletons in Early 1900?s



Quote
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 of evidence showing giants human remains in the tens of thousands had been uncovered all across America and were ordered to be destroyed by high level administrators to protect the mainstream chronology of human evolution at the time.
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 whistle blowers 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 can not admit to for different reasons, claims AIAA spokesman, James Churward.

«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 giant human femur uncovered in Ohio in 2011 by the American Association for Alternative Archeology, similar to the evidence presented in court

Quote
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

Quote
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.

Quote
The documents are scheduled to be released in 2015 and the operation will be coordinated by an independent scientific organization to assure political neutrality.

The Great Smithsonian Cover-Up: 18 Giant Skeletons Discovered in Wisconsin

Now ArMaP says this story is fake... that may be :P But it still goes in here as it is a STORY about Giants and the TITLE does say:  Rumors, Myths and Reality

Here’s one for your “Forbidden Archaeology” file. Scientists are remaining stubbornly silent about a lost race of giants found in burial mounds near Lake Delavan, Wisconsin, in May 1912.

The dig site at Lake Delavan was overseen by Beloit College and it included more than 200 effigy mounds that proved to be classic examples of 8th century Woodland Culture.

But the enormous size of the skeletons and elongated skulls found in May 1912 did not fit very neatly into anyone’s concept of a textbook standard. They were enormous. These were not average human beings.

Strange Skulls




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 7.6ft and 10 feet and their skulls...

They tend to have a double row of teeth, 6 fingers, 6 toes and like humans came in differant races. The teeth in the front of the jaw are regular molars. Heads usually found are elongated believed due to longer than normal life span.


American Giants (Red Hair Giants) where found with egyptian writing on their tombs have been found in multiple locations.



Quote
Mystery of The Wisconsin Giants

Was this some sort of prank, a hoax played by local farm boys or a demented taxidermist for fun and the attention of the press? The answer is no.

The Lake Delavan find of May 1912 was only one of dozens and dozens of similar finds that were reported in local newspapers from 1851 forward to the present day. It was not even the first set of giant skeletons found in Wisconsin.

On 10 August 1891, the New York Times reported that scientists from the Smithsonian Institution had discovered several large “pyramidal monuments” on Lake Mills, near Madison, Wisconsin.

“Madison was in ancient days the centre of a teeming population numbering not less than 200,000,” the Times said.

The excavators found an elaborate system of defensive works which they named Fort Aztalan.

“The celebrated mounds of Ohio and Indiana can bear no comparison, either in size, design or the skill displayed in their construction with these gigantic and mysterious monuments of earth — erected we know not by whom, and for what purpose we can only conjecture,” said the Times.

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.”

Giant skulls and skeletons of a race of “Goliaths” have been found on a very regular basis throughout the Midwestern states for more than 100 years. Giants have been found in Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky and New York, and their burial sites are similar to the well-known mounds of the Mound Builder people.

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.

There is a “prevailing scholarly consensus” that we have an adequate historical understanding of the peoples who lived in North America during this period. However, the long record of anomalous finds like those at Lake Delavan suggests otherwise.

The Great Smithsonian Cover-Up

Has there been a giant cover-up? Why aren’t there public displays of gigantic Native American skeletons at natural history museums?

The skeletons of some Mound Builders are certainly on display. There is a wonderful exhibit, for example, at the Aztalan State Park where one may see the skeleton of a “Princess of Aztalan” in the museum.

But the skeletons placed on display are normal-sized, and according to some sources, the skeletons of giants have been covered up.

Specifically, the Smithsonian Institution has been accused of making a deliberate effort to hide the “telling of the bones” and to keep the giant skeletons locked away.

In the words of Vine Deloria, a Native American author and professor of law:

“Modern day archaeology and anthropology have nearly sealed the door on our imaginations, broadly interpreting the North American past as devoid of anything unusual in the way of great cultures characterized by a people of unusual demeanor.

“The great interloper of ancient burial grounds, the nineteenth century Smithsonian Institution, created a one-way portal, through which uncounted bones have been spirited.

“This door and the contents of its vault are virtually sealed off to anyone, but government officials. Among these bones may lay answers not even sought by these officials concerning the deep past.”


Two Giant Skeletons Near Potosi, WI

The January 13th, 1870 edition of the Wisconsin Decatur Republican reported that two giant, well-preserved skeletons of an unknown race were discovered near Potosi, WI by workers digging the foundation of a saw mill near the bank of the Mississippi river.

One skeleton measured seven-and-a-half feet, the other eight feet. The skulls of each had prominent cheek bones and double rows of teeth. A large collection of arrowheads and “strange toys” were found buried with the remains.

Giant Skeleton Discovered in Maple Creek, WI

On December 20th, 1897 the New York Times reported that three large burial mounds had been discovered near Maple Creek, WI. Upon excavation, a skeleton measuring over nine feet from head to toe was discovered with finely tempered copper rods and other relics.

Giant Skeleton in West Bend, WI

A giant skeleton was unearthed outside of West Bend near Lizard Mound County Park and assembled by local farmers to a height of eight feet. More about this can be found in Washington County Paranormal: A Wisconsin Legend Trip by local author and investigator J. Nathan Couch.

While a normal-sized skeleton of a supposed mound builder (the “Princess of Aztalan”) is on display at the site of several large pyramidal monuments near Madison called Aztalan State Park, the goliath remains of Wisconsin’s giants have vanished along with the hundreds of others discovered throughout the midwest.

Many have accused the Smithsonian Institution of covering up these discoveries, locking the giant skeletons away and depriving the public of their findings.

Princess of Azatlan

When you view the Mound at Azatlan from above... it looks like a small Pyramid





Princess of Atzalan, Wi

At the center of the Princess Mound at a depth of about 4 feet below the surrounding terrain or about 10 feet below the assumed original summit of the mound was found the burial o  a young woman. She was perhaps 20-25 years age. The grave measured about 8 feet long and about 3 feet wide at the bottom. The body was found on it's back and in the extended burial position.

The Princess of Aztalan, Wisconsin Princess Mound. A museum is located today in what was the old Aztalan Baptist Church. This is the front of the converted church which contains many artifacts found on the village site. Directly behind the Aztalan Museum is an earth mound which originally was 47 feet in diameter and probably stood 6 feet above the surrounding area. As you can see the remains of this mound today are very small. Most of the earth was hauled away many years ago, presumably for filling in around the church which was built in 1852. The site itself seems to be at a high point overlooking the Crawfish River. Today this mound of dirt is called the Princess Burial
 
"One of the biggest mysteries of Aztalan is what they did with their dead. No cemetery has been found as yet, and the burials found thus far are too few to accurately generalize as to their burial methods". The Princess was very carefully wrapped for burial. She was wrapped in three belts of decorated shell beads numbering over 3 thousand. As you can see, the beads were carefully wrapped around the body: one about the shoulders, one around the waist and the third went twice around the lower part of the legs and ankles.
Each belt was four feet long and six inches wide. A few of these shells came from as far away as the Gulf of Mexico. The condition of her spinal columnindicates that she had been slightly deformed. Because of
this abnormality, she may have been looked upon with reverence as the case with other tribes.
(Ritzenthaler, Prehistoric Indians of Wisconsin )




The skeleton of the princess or prince , when found had no head. We suspect that the head belonged to a male that was not part of the original body. It would seem that the Prehistoric city of Aztalan may be very similar to the one in Illinois.  where over 40,000 people lived harmoniously within
six square miles. Although we don't know much about Aztalan, we can judge by the funeral attire of a priest king of the Illinois Ruins ,  that these appear to be the same people , carrying on the same traditions.
The Illinois metropolis existed in the  American Bottoms between present-day East St. Louis and Collinsville. The people inhabited 120 sites, planted crops, and traded with tribes as far away as Mexico. *Note Mexican Shells found on the Aztalan Princess/Priest King  (?).

The grave measured about 8 feet long and about 3 feet wide at the bottom

The eight foot grave length is confirmed by the Wisconsin Museum site

When Samuel A. Barrett excavated the mound it was nearly graded down and destroyed. Barrett excavated the center of the mound down about 3.75 feet, and found that the burial was excavated down to the natural layer of white sand and gravel, with the remains of the woman resting directly on this layer.

The grave measured about eight feet in length by three feet in width. The burial had been covered with earth, and then with a layer of white sand about twelve feet in diameter in the center of the mound.
