The Ancient Giants Who Ruled America: The Missing Skeletons and the Great Smithsonian Cover-Up by Richard J. DewhurstA study of the substantial evidence for a former race of giants in North America and its 150-year suppression by the Smithsonian Institution
• Shows how thousands of giant skeletons have been found, particularly in the Mississippi Valley, as well as the ruins of the giants’ cities
• Explores 400 years of giant finds, including newspaper articles, first person accounts, state historical records, and illustrated field reports
• Reveals the Stonehenge-era megalithic burial complex on Catalina Island with over 4,000 giant skeletons, including kings more than 9 feet tall
• Includes more than 100 rare photographs and illustrations of the lost evidence
Drawing on 400 years of newspaper articles and photos, first person accounts, state historical records, and illustrated field reports, Richard J. Dewhurst reveals not only that North America was once ruled by an advanced race of giants but also that the Smithsonian has been actively suppressing the physical evidence for nearly 150 years. He shows how thousands of giant skeletons have been unearthed at Mound Builder sites across the continent, only to disappear from the historical record. He examines other concealed giant discoveries, such as the giant mummies found in Spirit Cave, Nevada, wrapped in fine textiles and dating to 8000 BCE; the hundreds of red-haired bog mummies found at sinkhole “cenotes” on the west coast of Florida and dating to 7500 BCE; and the ruins of the giants’ cities with populations in excess of 100,000 in Arizona, Oklahoma, Alabama, and Louisiana.
Dewhurst shows how this suppression began shortly after the Civil War and transformed into an outright cover-up in 1879 when Major John Wesley Powell was appointed Smithsonian director, launching a strict pro-evolution, pro-Manifest Destiny agenda. He also reveals the 1920s’ discovery on Catalina Island of a megalithic burial complex with 6,000 years of continuous burials and over 4,000 skeletons, including a succession of kings and queens, some more than 9 feet tall--the evidence for which is hidden in the restricted-access evidence rooms at the Smithsonian.
Part of the Mythic Creatures exhibition. Traces of the giants' demise continue to be seen to this day, whenever torrents swell with rain and excessive water breaks their banks and floods the fields. They say that even now in gullies and ravines the people discover bones of immeasurable enormity, like men's carcasses but far bigger. The ancient Greeks told stories of giants, describing them as flesh-and-blood creatures who lived and died--and whose bones could be found coming out of the ground where they were buried long ago. Indeed, even today large and surprisingly human-like bones can be found in Greece.

The hoax began with a doctored photo and later found a receptive online audience—thanks perhaps to the image's unintended religious connotations. A digitally altered photograph created in shows a reclining giant surrounded by a wooden platform—with a shovel-wielding archaeologist thrown in for scale. By the "discovery" was being blogged and emailed all over the world—"Giant Skeleton Unearthed! The photo fakery might be obvious to most people. But the tall tale refuses to lie down even five years later, if a continuing flow of emails to National Geographic News are any indication.
In folklore , giants from Latin and Ancient Greek : gigas , cognate giga- are beings of human appearance, but are at times prodigious in size and strength or bear an otherwise notable appearance. Fairy tales such as " Jack the Giant Killer " have formed the modern perception of giants as stupid and violent monsters, sometimes said to eat humans, while other giants tend to eat the livestock. The antagonist in " Jack and the Beanstalk " is often described as a giant. In some more recent portrayals, like those of Jonathan Swift and Roald Dahl , some giants are both intelligent and friendly. Genesis tells of the Nephilim before and after Noah's Flood. According to Genesis , the Nephilim were destroyed in the Flood, but Nephilim are reported after the Flood, including:.
