Discovery Of Bizarre Giant Skeletons In Ancient British Era



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

Peat-diggers discovered two bones that were seven feet tall (2.13 meters) and buried with hazel dowsing rods in 1685 at the foot of Cadair Idris in Wales. Idris Gawr (the Giant Idris), one of the three so-called “Holy Astronomers of Britain,” and a renowned prince who ruled in the seventh century, is said to have had his mythological abode on the mountain.
According to legend, he was so big that he could observe his realm and the heavens from his rocking chair perched on a mountain.

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.

The Awful




The Awful cryptid as described by Vermont residents in 1925

In 1923, several residents of Berkshire and Richford, Vermont reported seeing a creature resembling a griffin, with a 20 foot wingspan and a serpentine tail.

“The Awful” Cryptid Sightings of 1925

Berkshire and Richford, Vermont are peaceful countryside towns located between Lake Champlain and Lake Memphremagog, near the Canadian Province of Quebec.

In 1925 several residents of these towns reported encounters with an unusual flying creature.

The creature was described as being similar to the mythical Griffin, with a grayish color, a 20-foot wingspan, a snake-like tail, and big claws capable of holding a medium sized dog. These strange sightings caused panic among the locals who came to dub the creature “the Awful”.

The first sightings of the mysterious creature were reported by two sawmill workers in Richford. As they crossed the main street bridge, they saw a very large beast on the nearby rooftop of the Boright building, glaring at them. According to the tale, one of the men was so scared that he had a heart attack out of fear. He had to be carried home but eventually recovered. However, for weeks afterward, he had nightmares about the creature, waking up his family with screams during the night.

In the following months, locals kept reporting sightings of this mysterious creature, causing fear and panic among residents. Farmers shared stories of it flying over their fields, and others saw it landing on their house rooftops. One resident, Oella Hopkins, experienced this when she was hanging laundry outside. The family dog got upset and started barking, and when Oella looked, she saw the creature, known as The Awful, perched on her farmhouse roof, staring at her. Terrified, Oella ran inside and hid under her bed for hours.

Later Sightings of “The Awful”

By the end of 1925, sightings of the creature became less frequent and almost stopped completely by 1928. Even though people thought it had disappeared, some locals claimed to see it every now and then since the 1920s. One such person was Lisa Maskell from Montgomery, who said she spotted the creature near Trout River when she was a child. When she saw a drawing of a pterodactyl later on, she thought it looked like the creature she saw and believed it resembled The Awful.

In 2006, there were a few new reports suggesting that The Awful might have returned to Northern Vermont. In October 2006, a person wrote in the County Courier about a respected person in Richford who saw the creature suddenly appear and grab a big black crow from a pine tree. The witness was surprised and said the creature flew around his house three times.

After this article, more people shared sightings. A woman remembered seeing the monster when she was about ten. It was in a tree near the Trout River, watching them with its strange beak, reminding her of a pterodactyl.

A dowser named Edith Green said people in Richford have been nervous about the creature for a long time.

An older man mentioned that the creature has been seen often in the Gibou area for the past 25 years, even recently. Locals usually leave it alone, and it leaves them alone, with a few exceptions.

A resident of East Richford said the creature has been spotted recently around the Slide Road area. He mentioned you can often hear it before seeing it, making a strange, low screaming sound and the flapping of its large wings when it’s close.

Despite its scary appearance, the creature was never known to attack people; it seemed more like it was just watching. There’s one account mentioning it flying over Berkshire Field near Lost Nation Road and appearing to hold a baby or a small animal, although it’s more likely to have been an animal.

Possible Explanations for the Awful

Assuming the reports of the Awful are not just a hoax or an old wives tale what else could be going on here? It’s possible that soe type of rare, large bird is lurking in the wilds of Vermont and is only seen very rarely due to a lack of numbers. The Awful could simple have been a particularly large owl or Eagle.

If paranormal in origin, the Awful does bear a small resemblence to the Mothman of West Virginia. Perhaps it continues to lurk in the shadows, waiting to come our and warn residents of impending doom.

Eric Shipton Discovers Possible yeti Footprints on Mount Everest




In the fall of 1951, English mountain climbers Eric Shipton and Dr. Michael Ward were exploring routes to climb Mount Everest from Nepal. While on this mission Shipton discovered some huge footprints in the snow, possibly belonging to the fabled Yeti.

In 1951, when Mount Everest wasn’t a busy tourist spot, two English mountain climbers, Eric Shipton and Dr. Michael Ward, joined a trip to figure out how to reach Everest’s summit from Nepal. Shipton led the expedition, and their discoveries helped plan the successful climb by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay in 1953. This expedition not only mapped the way up the tallest mountain but also marked a return to climbing after a pause during World War II.

The Yeti Footprints

At an altitude of around 15-16,000 feet, Shipton and Ward came across an unusual sight – a set of strange footprints in the snow in the Menlung Basin. Because they didn’t have proper tools to measure the footprints, they improvised using an ice pick, a backpack, and Michael Ward’s left boot. Shipton took photos as they closely examined what they found.

In one photo, comparing the boot to a footprint(below), it was evident that the print was much wider than a normal human foot, almost twice as wide, as Ward estimated. The footprint’s toes looked strange, with the big toe being lower and larger than expected for a human. It raised questions about how someone could walk in the snow without foot protection in freezing temperatures, even if it was a human print.

Perplexed, Shipton and Ward tracked the mysterious footprints down the glacier for about a mile until they set up camp for the night. A few days later, their teammates W. H. Murray and Tom Bourdillon joined them and examined the peculiar footprints. Bourdillon noted in his diary that the prints had become somewhat distorted by the sun by the time he reached them, but he still found them surprising and unexplained.

After the photos were published, several expeditions took place in the Himalayas and Central Asia to determine if the creature in Shipton’s photographs actually existed. However, no evidence was found to prove the existence of the Yeti. Some accused Shipton of staging a hoax, but others who had seen the footprints vouched for the authenticity of Shipton’s photographs.

Possible Explanations for the Footprints

Deformed Humans

While the footprints could be evidence of Yeti living in the Himalayas there are a number of other theories about where these footprints could have come from.

Dr. Michael Ward, a medical doctor who was a part of Shipton’s expedition had an interesting theory about the footprints. He believed that the footprints could have been made by a local Tibetan with differently-shaped feet. In communities without easy access to medical help, foot abnormalities from birth might remain.

Dr Ward had seen Tibetans with deformed feet and some who walked with bare feet in the snow.

One case occurred during the Silver Hut Expedition in 1960-1961, which stayed at 19,000ft in the Everest region during the winter. A 35-year-old Nepalese pilgrim named Man Bahadur, who usually lived at 6000ft, visited. He spent 14 days at 15,300ft and above, not wearing shoes or gloves throughout. He walked in the snow and on rocks with bare feet without getting frostbite. He had minimal clothing and no sleeping bag or protective gear except a woolen coat.

He was monitored for four days without shelter between 16,500ft and 17,500ft, with temperatures as low as -13°C to -15°C at night and below freezing during the day. Eventually, he developed cracks in his toe skin, which became infected, and he went to lower levels for treatment. If any European members of the group had followed the same routine, they would likely have suffered severe frostbite and hypothermia.


Yeti researcher Daniel C. Taylor believes he has convincingly proven that Yeti prints are made by Asiatic Black bears standing on their hind legs. He has recreated the footprints in the snow using casts from a black bear and believes them to be very similar.

Taylor believes that the long footprints in the snow from 1951 were made by the Asiatic black bear, known as Ursus thibetanus. When the bear put its front paw down, it didn’t press too hard into the snow, so the claws on the front paw didn’t leave clear marks. After that, the hind paw landed on the back part of the print, stretching it to about twelve inches in length.

The Nepalese Legend of the Yeti

Certain local Sherpas think that the Himalayas are home to unusual beings, and they view the Yeti (also commonly called the “abominable snowman”) as a guardian. On the other hand, some believe it to be a threat.

“There is a kind of mysterious creature that lives in the Himalayas,” explained Ang Tshering Sherpa, leader of the Nepal Mountaineering Association in Katmandu, who is from the Khumbu region.
