Your Daily Giant 1/19/2013

The Etowah Mound site just south of Cartersville Georgia. Known for remarkable artifacts of copper and statues of marble that were excavated there, this 54 acre site was built and occupied in three phases from 1000 to 1550 A.D. Etowah has three platform mounds and three lesser mounds. Temple mound A is 63 feet high with a base of 3 acres and overlooks Temple mound B which is pictured above. Another wonderfully impressive site from the Mississippian era of the Mound Builders.
The question now is, were giant skeletons discovered in this area, well it wouldn't be as fun if there were not. In fact we have multiple accounts and our friends from the Smithsonian were all over the site like a cheap suit. From the Middlebury Kentucky News December 30th 1930 is found an account of a giant skeleton with a copper crown unearthed. "Upon the stones that covered the vault were carved inscriptions, and if deciphered will probably lift the veil that has enshrouded the history of the race of giants that undoubtedly at one time inhabited this continent. All the relics were carefully packed and forwarded to the Smithsonian Institute, and are said to be the most interesting collection ever found in America."
Also, from the New York times April 5th 1886 is found the headline "Monster Skulls and Bones", "The water has receded from the Tumlin Mound Field (named this for 100 years before Etowah after Colonel Tumlin) and has left uncovered acres of skulls and bones, some of these are gigantic. If the whole frame is in proportion to the two thigh bones that were found, there owner must have stood 14 feet high. The whole makes a mine of archaeological wealth. A representative of the Smithsonian Institution is here investigating the curious relics."
Another NYT account from Feb. 21st 1893 is titled "Georgia's Big Mound- A jawbone that proves that there were Giants in those Days" the article describes what was found when a shaft was dug at the 100 foot high mound, "and among other things, found the jawbone of a man that would easily slip over the head of an ordinary man of this generation." This reads like countless others that describe the same anatomic anomaly of a beyond reasonable massive jawbone. Check out the account I found from Massachusetts, The New England Magazine, Vol. 16, 1897, pg. 546:
“The spot where the village of Edgartown stands today was at that time an ancient Indian burial ground. In one case, a huge jawbone of a man was dug up out from the ground, larger than that of any man at the present time, so large that it could be placed against the face of an ordinary man and entirely surround his jaw.” What would an arrogant skeptic say, case closed, well that's not my style but if you don't think some form of cover-up is involved I hate to say you may be criminally insane.
