Ever since the inception of mankind, we have been confronted with a number of mysteries and enigmatic phenomena occurring around us. One such baffling mystery is, whether the giants really existed in ancient times. If not, then who built such enormous monuments like Stonehenge? Are the stories about giants erecting Stonehenge actually true? In this writing, we have come up with certain evidence that supports the existence of Giants at one point in time. Here we have collected data that shows some of the Giant Skeletons that have been discovered.
The Discovery Of Giant Skeletons In the Ancient British Era
In the archaeological and historical records, there are over 250 references to the remains of giant human skeletons that range in height from 7 feet to 21 feet (2.13 meters to 6.4 meters). These skeletons were frequently measured and discussed at the time by eminent scientists, scholars, and writers.
Numerous pieces of mythology from England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland describe sophisticated societies of giants with superhuman abilities and cutting-edge technology who controlled thunder and lightning, as evidenced by the disturbance of their tombs by succeeding generations. They were frequently high kings and queens who governed from their mountaintop fortresses and were expert surveyors, architects, astronomers, and geomancers. While some were savage cannibals who delighted in scattering enormous rocks across the area in precise patterns.
St Michael’s Mount, Cornwall, 8ft
One of England’s most recognizable sights, St. Michael’s Mount, is situated off the coastline of Marazion in South Cornwall. It is a granite conical hill with a monastery perched atop and encircled by lovely gardens. Early in the 19th century, a skeleton measuring eight feet (2.43 meters) tall was found on St. Michael’s Mount inside a cramped dungeon carved out of solid rock, which is currently the chapel’s crypt. According to old traditions, Jack-the-Giant-Killer killed Cormoran the Giant. Additionally, it was claimed that Cormoran had six toes and six fingers on each foot. In addition, he was a one-eyed Cyclops who fought white magicians for territory and power, suffering both financial loss and gain in the process.
Glastonbury Abbey Giant, Somerset, 9ft
The monks of Glastonbury Abbey announced a significant find in 1191, claiming to have discovered King Arthur’s skeleton. Witnesses reported that it stood 9 feet tall (2.7 meters) and that Guinevere’s skeleton with a braid of blonde hair was close to it. The location was designated as King Arthur’s burial with a lead cross with Latin inscriptions.
About 4 years after the discovery, renowned historian Giraldus Cambrensis personally examined the skulls and the grave and declared it to be a genuine find. The remains were moved into a marble sarcophagus in 1278 in front of King Edward I and Queen Eleanor, who also witnessed the ritual. The coffin was then placed inside the Abbey. This skeleton’s enormous size was confirmed by additional records dating back to 1193. Longbows constructed of Yew were found nearby in a prehistoric lake settlement, measuring 7 feet (2.1 meters) in length.
Lundy Island, Devon, 8ft 7in
Two skeletons, one 8 feet 5 inches and the other 8 feet 7 inches tall, were found near the southern tip of Lundy Island in 1856. (2.56m). They were interred beside five other skeletons of similar sizes in tombs with stone walls. Since ancient times, Lundy has been mentioned in historical writings. According to the Romans, the locals were “a uniquely holy race of men…who eschewed trade and had glimpses of the future.”
Cadair Idris, Wales, 7ft
The summit of Cadair Idris, which is made up of three peaks and resembles a giant seat, is supposed to be endowed with mystical abilities. People who sat in it either went insane or got revelations of the giants’ occult teachings. All over Wales, Idris is credited with creating megalithic sites, many of which have well-known names and legends associated with astronomy, surveying, giant lore, geomancy, and other fields. According to biblical tradition, Idris is Enoch, thus in the book, we explore if the biblical patriarch was related to or even the same as the Giant Idris of Wales.
Maeshowe, Orkney, 10ft
Maeshowe is a significant megalithic tomb from 2800 BC that is located on mainland Orkney in Scotland. The Ness of Brodgar, the Stones of Stenness, and the Ring of Brodgar are all a component of the same megalithic structure. A ten-foot-tall (3-meter) skeleton & two mummies were discovered inside the site in 1861, according to the antiquarian James Farrer, who conducted the excavations. Although it’s possible that this is the same find, Jo Ben’s Descripto Insuluarum Orchadiarum (Descriptions of Orkney) from 1529 stated that a 14-foot (14.26m) skeleton was also discovered nearby.
Cor Giant, Northumberland, 21ft
Near a piece of Hadrian’s Wall at Corbridge, Northumberland, in 1660, the remains of a magnificent skeleton were discovered. It was said to be 21 feet long (6.4m). Early in the nineteenth century, a neighboring “immense size” and perfect-condition skull was discovered. The giant’s rib was formerly on show in the Old George Inn’s kitchen in Newcastle before ending up in Keswick Museum in Cumbria, where it was preserved with other enormous skulls and bones in a collection known as the cabinet of oddities.
St Bee’s, Cumbria, 13ft 6in
Hugh Hodson of Thorneway, in Cumberland, discovered a roughly four-meter-tall (13.2 feet) giant in cornfields in St. Bee’s, Cumbria, in the early 1800s. The skeleton still wore all of his armor, had a massive sword, and an axe that was more than “two yards long.” According to Hodson, “his teeth were six inches long [15 cm], two inches broad [5 cm], and his forehead was more than two spans broad. Three pecks of oats could fit in his chine bone. The enormous discoveries were shared among locals, and would never be seen again.
Glenelg Broch, Scotland, 11ft
Two extraordinary bones were found in Scotland’s 2000-year-old Dun Telve Broch in Glenelg. Both were noted as having strong bones and good proportions; one was about 8 1/2 feet (2.6 meters) tall while the other was over 11 feet tall (3.35 meters). The largest man at the dig was able to effortlessly fit the jaw bone over his own jaw with room to spare because it was so big. However, “all of a sudden there came on lightning, thunder wind and a downpour of such a torrent that no one ever heard or saw.” The huge spirits were clearly displeased with the excavators because they gave them a “Sowers of Thunder” encounter they would never ignore. The neighborhood was referred to as the Land of the Big Men, and this stone tower is one of many that can be found in Scotland.
Duchuil, Co.Mayo, Ireland, 12ft 6in
According to Glyn Daniel, a director of archaeology at Cambridge University, the illustrious Saint Patrick may have been the first-ever archaeologist. Saint Patrick found an over twelve-foot-long (3.65-meter) ancient warrior skeleton in an Irish-long barrow while excavating ancient cemeteries. A massive axe and a huge sword were also found in the tomb. The bones and antiquated weapons were soon dispersed by Saint Patrick. He reportedly sent the Pagon giant to heaven after attempting to rescue his soul by baptizing his skeleton!
Stonehenge, Wiltshire, 14ft 10in
A 14ft 10in (4.52cm) skeleton was discovered a few miles to the south of Stonehenge in the early 1500s, according to Sir Thomas Elyot, an author, diplomat, and scholar. A mysteriously inscribed old book was also contained within the enormous wood casket. William Camden and John Leland, two well-known authors of the period, both wrote about it. A sizable lead and tin “table” with more peculiar inscriptions was also discovered nearby.
