There are hundreds of accounts over the past few centuries, about the discovery of very large humans skeletons all over North America. The skeletons
are 7-10 feet tall. apparently they predate the native americans. many are found with copper bracelets and silver belts and so on, suggesting a
somewhat advanced culture. some of the stories are pretty incredible, including skeletons found with steel helms with horns-much like the vikings,
and gold coins.
one interesting commonality among the large people is that they have a double row of teeth, all the way around. and many reports claim a human head
fits easily inside the skulls found.
"The Scientific American, in 1883, published the following account:
Two miles from Mandan, on the bluffs near the junction of the Hart and Missouri Rivers, says the local newspaper, the Pioneer, is an old Cemetery of
fully 100 acres in extent filled with bones of a giant race. This vast city of the dead lies just east of the Fort Lincoln road. The ground has the
appearance of having been filled with trenches piled full of dead bodies, both man and beast, and covered with several feet of earth. In many places
mounds from 8 to 10 feet high, and some of them 100 feet or more in length, have been thrown up and are filled with bones, broken pottery, vases of
various bright colored flint, and agates ... showing the work of a people skilled in the arts and possessed of a high state of civilization. This has
evidently been a grand battlefield, where thousands of men ... have fallen. ...Five miles above Mandan, on the opposite side of the Missouri, is
another vast cemetery, as yet unexplored. We asked an aged Indian what his people knew of these ancient grave yards. He answered: "Me know nothing
about them. They were here before the red man."
apparently whenever the Smithsonian gets involved, the evidence tends to vanish. there was a report (unverified) about the Smithsonian museum taking
a barge full of artifacts and dumping them in the Atlantic ocean. but no one knows, since most of the Smithsonian's collection can only be viewed
by employees and government officials.
So, there is a very convincing theory that a group of large humans inhabited parts of north america for some time and may have predated the native
Americans. despite the (often) religious motivations behind the theory, the large numbers of stories and scattered evidence is hard to ignore.
