"When these great men or giants had thus made their settlement and dug these wells or cisterns, they destroyed and ate all the supplies they could find in the neighborhood. It is said that one of them ate more than fifty of the natives of the land; and as the supply of food was not sufficient for them to maintain themselves, they caught much fish with nets and gear that they had. They lived in continuous hostility with the natives, because they slew the latter's women in order to have them, and they also slew the men for other reasons. But the Indians were not numerous enough to kill these newcomers who occupied their land and lorded it over them; and although they held great discussions about this, they never dared attack them.
Like other reporters, Gutiérrez de Santa Clara is concerned with these great giants, as the references obtained from certain old inhabitants of the province of Manta, appeared under the reign of Inca Tupac Yupanqui, ruffling his arrival. They were men of deformed height and greatness, came in very large rafts from the part where the sun sets or the Straits of Magellan, after landing they began to tyrannize the coastal population, killing many Indians and throwing others outside their villages, the natives of Puerto Viejo told the Inca Tupac Yupanqui, The Inca, sent a “Curaca” (kind of authority) together with many other Indian leaders, to speak with the giants, so they can stablish a relationship with a peace settlement, or otherwise The Inca will make war.
The natives say that our Lord God, unwilling to conceal so wicked a sin, sent them a punishment suited to the beastliness of the crime, and when all the giants were together engaged in this accursed practice there came a fearful fire from heaven to the accompaniment of a great noise, in the midst of which a shining angel appeared holding a sharp, bright sword with which he slew them all at a single stroke, and the fire consumed them leaving only a few bones and skulls,
Said to have told the natives that they had left large islands that are in the southern seas to the west, from which they were driven by a large Indian lord was there that was as big as them, that then had sailed many rowing and sailing days and that by reason of a storm they were driven to these shores.

Hey Khaaaaan! You know it was a bunch of drunken Vikings. The average Peruvian is what? 5 feet tall, and that is now. Back in the day, they might have been even shorter. Glad to see your still fighting the wrath.
The Paiutes, a Native-American tribe indigenous to parts of Nevada, Utah and Arizona, told early white settlers about their ancestors’ battles with a ferocious race of white, red-haired giants. According to the Paiutes, the giants were already living in the area.
The Paiutes named the giants “Si-Te-Cah” that literally means “tule-eaters.” The tule is a fibrous water plant the giants wove into rafts to escape the Paiutes continuous attacks. They used the rafts to navigate across what remained of Lake Lahontan.
According to the Paiutes, the red-haired giants stood as tall as 12-feet and were a vicious, unapproachable people that killed and ate captured Paiutes as food. [Overestimation is to be expected.]
The Giants fought using large stones thrown by hand, with knotty sticks and truncheons which they produced, they did not bring any. Gave island news from many lands have been discovered later.
The Inca, in accordance with the lord of Chimu, were granted land from the tip of Tangarara later called Santa Elena, but she had no water, no firewood, which understood that it was to get rid of them, but dissembled. For deep wells drilled for water on rocks live to reach very good and very cold. They built their houses of straw, made their fields and wood were provided, bringing it away on their rafts. But the result was a new cause of conflict because these giant battered women in natural Manta, entering into trade with them in the absence of their own, they did not. In view of such abuse, the women withdrew and were screened, but then the giants fell into the vice of sodomy. Later emerged that the legend of fire fell from heaven punishment, destroying them.
The writer confirms this story to prove the existence of wells dug in rocks, sand and ashes that were witness to the fire, as well as certain sources of tar that is used by the Spanish to caulk their ships, and finally; Finally, the discovery of skulls and bones "very warp and a grinding of three fingers and five gordor largor." Play the tradition preserved by the people of Chimu Indians about a distant time that two giants lived in the house of the Lord of this valley who "ate them both in a seated more than 20 Indians, who were also" very proud and villains ". Curaca say the command sent. " .
Pretty good site on ancient giants. I would need a little more proof though. Anything is possible.

Well nobody knows that for sure. It is all speculation and a bunch of grave diggers trying to make a name for themselves. I think the best thing to do would be to leave the bones where they are untouched. But this is how it works: Perform a SatNav ground penetrating density radar of the entire location. Employ Archaeologists as a tool to carefully excavate the site. When they reach the target (Precious Metals,Stones,and historical artifacts) an
immediate halt to excavation occurs. The standard cover story is disseminated. (Cultural,Political,Religious,
Biological,Enviromental) In the meantime, we extract exactly what we were looking for. Then when all is said and done, (the news story is that of solution). The Archaeologists are allowed to proceed, and take credit for the grave they have dug and the few tid bits we have left them to try to piece together for the next decade or two.
So then, while you are trying to figure out the pieces of a puzzle that doesn't fit, and how tall the bipeds were,
we are off at the Waldorf Astoria performing ceremonies with priceless goblets.
But Ah yes, The Incas were taller than that, and The Vikings stole their women. Regards.
