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.
No matter how much science refuses the existence of Giants, these shreds of evidence are extremely convincing in nature. Whar do you guys think? Let us know in the comment box.

A Queer Family: Consisting of a Mother of Three Children Who are Part Man and Part Animal
The Salt Lake Herald, Sunday 30th September, 1883
Messrs. F. Rosengay, Allen M. Vandal and Edward P. Strong, for some time past have been traveling through portions of Florida, Alabama and Mississippi inspecting pine lands.
These gentlemen are the emissaries of a grand syndicate. Or, at least, so they claim, which has been formed in Minnesota for the purpose of buying immense tracts of land in the south and forming a complete system of saw mills from which to furnish lumber for the world, but more especially for shipment into Mexico, where they claim they will always find a ready market at good prices.
These gentlemen are all men of means and very kindly in their deportment, making friends in every portion of the country they have visited, and bring with them undoubted credentials as to their honor and integrity, therefore some credit must be given to the following relation, which each of them declares to be nothing but facts.
It might be as well to state here that nearly on the line between St. Tammany and Washington parishes resides a man about 50 years of age, who answers to the name of “Crazy Aleck.” This dilapidated specimen of crazy humanity resides in the most lonesome portion of the parish that it would be possible to find, seldom making his appearance among the settlers, and then only when forced to do so from hunger.
He is harmlessly insane and sometimes when he visits a place to secure a snack of something to eat will become quite communicative and tell some wonderful stories concerning his forest home; but where he resides no one knows or cares, and his queer stories were never heeded, being regarded as the fancies of a madman’s brain.
But upon several occasions “Crazy Aleck” has told a story concerning “a woman and some bears” which sounded ridiculous and improbable in the extreme, but which, nevertheless, has proved to be true.
This is the narrative related by the three gentlemen first named:
Hearing while in the lower portion of Mississippi, that some very desirable land lay in Washington and St. Tammany parishes, LA., and that is could be procured very reasonably, our party started for that section. Upon arriving at the desired point we obtained accommodations at a farmhouse and the next day started on horseback in a tour of inspection; well, we had gone over considerable ground during the day and started on the return about 4 o’clock.
Mr. Vandal, who had become weary of riding, had asked one of us to lead his animal and that he would walk on while we stopped now and then to make observations and take notes, as was our custom upon such journeys.
Vandal got some distance ahead of the two of us who had the horses, and suddenly we saw him come around a bend in the road a short distance ahead of us on a dead run; we started up our horses to meet him, and when he came up, almost out of breath, he said: “Tie your horses to a tree and come up the road; there’s the greatest sight you ever saw.”
We did as he requested and followed him up the road some 300 yards, when putting his fingers to his lips, to indicate that we must be silent and cautious, he started to creep through an undergrowth on the side of the road and we followed.
At this juncture we were much startled to hear a deep coarse laugh issue from a space apparently a short distance in advance of us.
It was a human laugh, evidently, but still it was so hollow and unearth like that it sent a chill of terror through us all; this laugh was followed by another, and then another of the same kind, and these were succeeded by a long hearty laugh, apparently that of a female.
Partly recovered from our astonishment, at a motion from Vandal we creeped on about thirty yards to the edge of the thicket, and there in an open space, a few yards beyond, we beheld the most astonishing sight that ever greeted mortal eye.
Seated on the trunk of a fallen tree was a dilapidated looking specimen of feminine humanity, whose small bit of clothing was naught but rags and whose hair hung about her shoulders in a tangles mass; she was apparently about sixty years of age, was of medium stature, and dark, as though from long exposure to the sun and weather.
Near by her were three of the most hideous objects one could imagine, evidently playing, and she seemed to be watching them attentively.
To describe these three objects (you could not call them human) is very difficult.Their heads were shaped like human beings, the tops, ears, eyes and neck being perfect, but the mouth and nose coming together broad and thick, more on the order of a bear; the arms resembled perfectly those of men, but from the waist down they bore the shape and semblance of a bear, being covered entirely with long, coarse, black hair. The feet were also similar to those of a bear, being flat, and seemingly armed with immense claws.
For some time we watched them with mute astonishment, as they wrestled and played, now dancing erect as a biped, and then on all fours as a quadruped, and now and then giving a vent to their horrible laugh.
How long this would have continued we do not know, but jut here Strong let his excitement get the better of his discretion and changed his position, partly exposing himself to view, and at the same time making a slight noise. The noise attracted the woman’s attention, and she evidently saw Strong, for uttering a cry of alarm she started through the under growth on the other side of the opening with the speed of a deer, closely followed by the three queer-looking creatures, running on all fours.
As soon as we had recovered from our astonishment we attempted to follow them, but they were too swift of foot, and fearing we would become lost in this, to us strange section, we were forced to return.
The next day in company with several other gentlemen, we scoured the section thoroughly, but could find no traces of the strange family. “I have traveled far,” said Mr. Vandal, “and seen many wonderful things, but this human-bear family, as I call them, surpasses my experience heretofore by far.
Theories about the Human-Bear Cryptid Children
If we assume this story is credible, what could be going on here?
Some cryptozoologists believe the wild woman in this account may have found some orphaned bigfoot children and chosen to raise them as her own. Bigfoot and other strange cryptids have been spotted all over America and it’s possible that these young creatures were simply an undiscovered species being cared for by a reclusive woman.
It’s somewhat more likely that the children were in fact human but perhaps horribly deformed. The extreme body hair and strange facial features could be a genetic abnormality. The “claws” could have simply been unkempt toenails that had grown to an unsightly length.
Perhaps the children were actually bear cubs that that the woman had taken. If they had mange it’s possible that they would resemble humans a bit more closely. A recent viral video showing a bear in a Chinese zoo that people believed was actually human shows that some bears can be uncannily human-like.

The Native American Salish tribe recounts tales of a cryptid known as the Stick Indians, which remarkably mirror many reported sightings of Bigfoot.
Description of the Stick Indians
Stick Indians are a nocturnal creature rarely sighted held in high regard by the Salish people. They are described as being hairy, humanoid creatures with a tall and slender frame. They are said to be able to move incredibly fast and silently.
The description of Stick Indians varies between tribes, with the Salish viewing them as large, hairy, Bigfoot-like beings, while the Cayuse and Yakama portray them as dwarfs of the forest.
In some tribal traditions, Stick Indians are believed to possess the power to paralyze, hypnotize, or drive humans insane. In other accounts, they simply lure people off their paths by creating spooky whistling sounds or laughter in the woods at night.
Stories circulate of Stick Indians potentially devouring humans who become their victims, abducting children, or harassing women. These entities are also said to seek fierce revenge against those who harm or disrespect them, even if such actions were unintentional.
Stick Indians reportedly speak a language resembling the sounds of birds and other animals rather than human speech.
Stick Indians are said to subsist primarily on hunting and fishing, and it appears they do not establish any permanent settlements, preferring a nomadic lifestyle. Their attire is reportedly made from deer skins and other elements found within the forest.
The origin of the term “Stick Indians” is speculated to come from their forest-dwelling habits and animal-like characteristics. Another theory suggests that the name derives from their mischievous behavior of inserting sticks into tepees, lodges, and even pranking sleeping individuals.
These entities show similarities to the Pukwudgies of folklore, primarily being harmless until provoked. In the darkness of the night, Stick Indians are known to engage in light-hearted mischief in nearby villages, such as pilfering fish from nets, sneaking away with food, or even undressing sleeping villagers.
However, these creatures’ true capabilities are said to surface when they are threatened or their lives are disrupted by humans. Known for their vengefulness, Stick Indians allegedly possess powerful mental influence abilities. These powers, reported to induce fear, confusion, and anxiety, vary in intensity and effect, with some accounts suggesting they can hypnotize or even drive people to insanity. They are particularly adept at disorienting travelers by mimicking animal noises and whistling.
Several instances of missing persons are often attributed to the Stick Indians, who are believed to abduct those who disrespect them as a form of retribution. The folklore especially warns children about wandering into the forest at night, as tales abound of Stick Indians kidnapping children and raising them as wives or slaves.
Living History’s Mysteries covers the Stick Indians
Stick Indian Sightings
A user on the HWHikers forum named kbatku posted his encounter with some Stick Indians back in 2008.
He recalled that on New Year’s Eve in 1991, him and his wife ventured into Boulder Cave to meet some friends and celebrate the New Year. Despite being dark, they were equipped with flashlights and warm clothes, and the trail was clear of snow.
As they navigated the trail through the pine forest, they started hearing distant noises resembling the laughter and shouts of playing children. They initially dismissed this, attributing it to a nearby cabin or camp, but there was no evidence of any other people in the area. The laughter seemed to fade in and out, as if carried by the wind, only to return moments later.
Once they reached the cave, they relayed their peculiar experience to their friends. However, as the night progressed with music, conversation, and laughter, the strange incident was temporarily forgotten.
When they started their journey back, the mood had changed, the forest seemed somewhat ominous. They discovered a peculiar object propped against the base of a tree, which they believed was left for them by whatever caused the laughter. The object was a small figurine made of tiny sticks, moss, pine needles, and lichen, intricately assembled, as if by tiny hands.
Taking it home, they scrutinized it for some time, but it eventually gave off a creepy vibe, and they discarded it. Years later, while recounting this experience to a Native coworker, he suggested that they had encountered “Stick Indians”.
