The Megalithic Giants: The Lost History of a Forgotten Race - presented by Hugh Newman
Stone circles, pyramids, earthworks and other ancient sites often have legends of giants who built them. For a long time, it was thought these were simply fairy stories or folklore. However recent research in to old documents, newspapers, journals, first hand reports and old photos, now suggest that these may have been a reality. There are several accounts in the Bible referencing giants, and now there are skeletal remains that match some of those stories. Stonehenge was once called ‘The Giants Dance’ and it was said that Merlin summoned giants from Ireland to help him build it. Now there are archaeological reports from the area that support this. In South Africa, there is a giant footprint nearly five-feet long. But it is the discoveries in North America that have created a huge controversy, because there are at least 1500 reports of a giant race, some with double-rows of teeth, who ruled the continent since at least 7,000 BC. They were often found in ancient mounds or megalithic sites, and have been reported as going up to a staggering 18 feet tall. Often they have strange bronze armour, perfect teeth, and blond or red hair, suggesting they may not be native to North America. Most reports range the heights between 7ft and 12 ft, but it still doesn’t answer the question of why this part of history has been so meticulously covered up. From New England, to Miami, Ohio and California, these giant skeletons have been dug up in their thousands, yet the Smithsonian Institution got involved and they mysteriously vanished. The Native American NAGPRA Act of 1990 removed the final bones from museum displays, so there is now little evidence to go on, but the reports, photos and eye-witness accounts, even from Abraham Lincoln and other luminaries, suggest that the history books are on the verge of being rewritten. Hugh will also look at giant footprints, six-toed giants, and horned and elongated skulls, as these are often associated with the giants and are found at ancient sacred sites. Hugh will give us a whirlwind tour worldwide, focussing those discovered in the vicinity of ancient sites.
