New Giant Skulls Found!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omm8Ey8vwbg


Yes, some of the cone head skulls are obviously results of head binding
while many others look completely natural i.e. these people had natural cone heads.!!!

http://archaeology.about.com/od/earlymansites/a/cro_magnon.htm

Recent research over the past 20 years or so, however, has led scholars to believe that the physical dimensions of so-called 'Cro-Magnon' are not sufficiently different enough from modern humans to warrant a separate designation. Scientists today use 'Anatomically Modern Human' (AMH) or 'Early Modern Human' (EMH) to designate the Upper Paleolithic human beings who looked a lot like us, but did not have the complete suite of modern human behaviors.

Physical Characteristics of EMH

The physical characteristics of Early Modern Human are quite similar to modern humans, although perhaps a bit more robust, particularly seen in femora--the leg bones. The differences, which are slight, have been attributed to the shift away from long distance hunting strategies to sedentism and agriculture.

A recent study by Trent Holliday comparing early and late Upper Paleolithic skeletal materials provided an average male height of 170 centimeters (early) and 168 centimeters (late), and average female height of 157.6 cm (early) and 158.4 (late). However, Formicola and Giannecchini's data revealed that "EUP males are much taller (176.2 cm) and LUP shorter (165.6 cm), with an average difference of 10.6 cm. Similarly EUP females (162.9 cm) largely exceed LUP females (153.5 cm)." I think the jury is still out.

176.00cm =  69.29 in. or  5.75 feet - !!! NOOOOO....

But that's NOT true!!!!

A skeleton estimated as being 10,000 years old was found in the ‘tomb of Palli Aike’ in Tierra del Fuego in 1969-70 and has been identified as Cro-Magnon, which indicates that this race also spread to South America.
...
The Cro-Magnons, on the other hand, averaged 6 feet 7 inches (2 metres), which could well have given rise to the ‘giants’ referred to in Classical and biblical texts
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

These skulls were photographed by Robert Connolly on his trip around the world during which he was collecting materials about ancient civilizations. The discovery of unusual skulls was thus an unintended "spinoff" of his efforts.

Russian elongated skulls
http://newsfornatives.com/blog/2009/05/10/mysterious-skulls-found-natural-or-manipiluated-you-decide-video-poll/
...
The enormity of the cranial vault is obvious from all three pictures. By interpolation, we can estimate the minimum cranial capacity at 2200 ccm, but the value can be as high as 2500 ccm. The shape of the skull may be a biological response–a survival of the species mechanism–to increase the brain mass without the danger of relegating the species to extinction and keeping a viable biological reproduction intact. However, since we do not see the representatives of the “conehead” type in modern population, something prevented the type becoming as widespread as it is in the case of present-day moderns
...
... it is very strange that the deformed skulls are found in European countries including Norway and France. They are also found in Central Asia, in Central and South America. Taking into account huge distances and oceans separating different nations, how could people pass around the weird fashion?

“The skull exhibited here used to belong to a young woman in her twenties,” says senior researcher of the Pyatigorsk museum of regional studies Mikhail Semendyaev. “Its volume is quite regular, about 1.5 liters. By the way, archeologists normally find 2-3 deformed skulls like this one in every hundred of skulls discovered during the excavation,” adds Mr. Semendyaev.
...
OMSK, RUSSIA – Archaeologists have found a set of elongated skulls buried in Siberia. But this is not the first time these odd relics have been found.

Elongated skulls have been discovered across the globe in various cultures, dating back as far as 45,000 BC in what is now Iraq. The theory archaeologists have is called ‘artificial cranial deformation’, where a baby has its head bound to encourage specific skull growth.

Skulls were found as recently as this past January, in a dig in Siberia.


Figure 1. A typical illustration in textbooks showing the supposed evolution of man’s cranial capacity. 1. Chimpanzee 2. Australopithecine 3. Homo erectus 4. Neanderthal 5. Cro-Magnon

Modern human = 1450 cc....


As is obvious from the comparison with a modern human skull, the cranial capacity lies within the modern human range. This is not surprising, since the late Neanderthals and early modern humans (Cro-Magnon) had larger cranial capacities (both roughly 1600 ccm to 1750 ccm) than modern humans (av. 1450 ccm).

The decrease of the cranial capacity (sudden at that -- the specimens of modern humans after about 10500 BCE have smaller craniums) is a puzzling matter, but that's another story.

Notice that the image shown is WRONG - the late Neanderthals and early modern humans (Cro-Magnon) had larger cranial capacities (both roughly 1600 ccm to 1750 ccm - Not 1370-1400 ccm!!!

Just amazing photos - Shamans with tall point hats - male and female

http://www.philipcoppens.com/turim_mummies.html

“From around 1800BC, the earliest mummies in the Tarim Basin were exclusively Caucausoid, or Europoid,” says Mair. East Asian migrants arrived in the eastern portions of the Tarim Basin about 3,000 years ago, while the Uighur peoples arrived after the collapse of the Orkon Uighur Kingdom, based in modern-day Mongolia, around the year 842. In short, Mair leaves little doubt that we are confronted with a “lost civilisation”, existing of a group of European settlers in a region millennia before the history of this region started to be written
...
In fact, the Saka nomads had high-pointed hats – like the ones found next to Cherchen Man – as displayed on the Persepolis reliefs in southern Iran. A bronze statue found in the Altai Mountains from the 5th century BC wore a similar hat. Most important is the fact that the statue had Caucasoid features, and showed similarities in dress to Cherchen Man. It is therefore clear that apart from “hard” DNA evidence, there is much other incontrovertible evidence that makes this European presence in China a hard fact. The discovery of these mummies indeed rewrote history – whether some like that or not.

This is interesting just started looking at it Wow written pre-WWII  :

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurence_Waddell

Lieutenant Colonel Laurence Austine Waddell [1] F.L.S., M.Ch., I.M.S. (1854–1938) was a British explorer, British army surgeon,[2] collector in Tibet, and author.

Waddell traveled extensively in India throughout the 1890s (including Sikkim and areas on the borders of Nepal and Tibet) and wrote about the Tibetan Buddhist religious practices he observed there. Stationed with the British army in Darjeeling, Waddell learned the Tibetan language and even visited Tibet several times secretly, in disguise. He was the cultural consultant on the 1903-1904 British invasion of Tibet led by Colonel Sir Francis Edward Younghusband, and was considered alongside Sir Charles Bell as one of the foremost authorities on Tibet and Tibetan Buddhism

The Phoenician Origin of Britons, Scots & Anglo-Saxons - Lawrence Austine Waddell
Orig. pub. by Williams & Norgate, 1924 2nd ed., 1925



PLATE I. Aryan Phoenician inscriptions on Newton Stone of "Part-olon, King of the Scots" about 400 B.C., calling himself "Brit-on," "Hittite," and "Phoenician."

In the course of my researches into the fascinating problem of the Lost Origin of the Aryans, the fair, long-headed North European race, the traditional ancestors of our forbears of the Brito-Scandinavian race who gave to Europe in prehistoric time its Higher Civilization and civilized Languages researches to which I have devoted the greater part of my life, and my entire time for the past sixteen years--

I ascertained that the Phoenicians were Aryans in race.  That is to say, they were of the fair and long-headed civilizing "Northern" race, the reality of whose existence was conclusively confirmed and established by Huxley, who proved that

"There was and is an Aryan Race, that is to say, the characteristic modes of speech, termed Aryan, were developed among the Blond Long-heads alone, however much some of them may have been modified by the importation of Non-Aryan elements."
("The Aryan Question" in Nineteenth Century, 1890. 766.)

1103BC - Arrival of Brutus of Troy in Britain -

The island was then called Albion, and was inhabited by a few giants ...

Brutus called the island after his own name 'Brit-ain' and his companions 'Brit-o-ns' .

He built a city which he called 'New Troy,'  

Later, Lud, the brother of Cassibellaun  made war against Julius Caesar,  and ordered it to be called after his own name, 'Kaer-Lud,' , the 'City of Lud' [or 'Lud-Dun,' corrupted into 'Lon-don'].


Corineus, in imitation of his leader, called that part of the island which was given to him as duke, 'Corinea'3 and his people 'Corinene' [Cornish men] after his own name; for though he had his choice of provinces before all the rest, yet he preferred this country [Corn-wall], which is now called, in Latin, 'Cornubia.' For it was a diversion to him to
encounter the said 'giants,' which were in greater numbers there than in all the other provinces. Among the rest was one detestable monster named Goemagot
. . . .
On a certain day, when Brutus was holding a solemn festival to the gods in the port where they first landed, this 'giant,' with a score of his companions, came in upon the Britons, making great slaughter. The Britons at last killed everyone but Goemagot, who was spared to wrestle with Corineus.4
. . .
Corineus, snatching him on his shoulders, ran with him to the shore and from the top of a high cliff hurled down the savage monster into the sea.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Totnes

Totnes is a market town and civil parish at the head of the estuary of the River Dart in Devon, England within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is about 22 miles (35 km) south of the city of Exeter and is the administrative centre of the South Hams District Council.

"the coast of Totnes" was where Brutus of Troy, the mythical founder of Britain, first came ashore on the island





http://plymouthlocalhistory.blogspot.com/2009_03_01_archive.html
...
One day, while holding a festival at the port where they first landed, Brutus and his men were attacked by a group of giants who they killed all except one who was called Gogmagog. He was said to be 12 cubits high. A cubit would have been about one and a half feet which would have made Gogmagog about 18 feet tall.
...
Brutus kept Gogmagog alive so that he could wrestle with Corineus, the then Duke of Cornwall, who loved to wrestle with giants. When the opponents met for the first time, Gogmagog gripped Corineus so tightly around his middle that he broke three of his ribs. This enraged Corineus who then threw Gogmagog off nearby cliffs and he fell to his death on the jagged rocks below. This was all said to have happened on Plymouth Hoe and the chalk giants that once appeared on the Hoe represented this wrestling match.

There is a record of the chalk cut giant being on Plymouth Hoe in 1486 and a record in the City Archive shows a receipt for a bill for cleaning and weeding the giant. The bill was paid by the Earl of Edgcumbe.

It is uncertain when the figure first appeared. Town records from 1486 onwards call the figure Gogmagog but in Carew's Survey of Cornwall in 1602, he refers to there being two figures on the slopes of the Hoe, both wielding clubs. One was bigger than the other and he calls them Gog and Magog, splitting the name into two halves.

Several years later though, the smaller figure was being referred to as Corineus so the figures obviously commemorated the earlier wrestling match mentioned by Geoffrey of Monmouth . The figures were unfortunately destroyed when the Citadel was built in the reign of King Charles II.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

So, did caucasian people originate in the Middle East or Asia?  Was the Garden of Eden located in or near the Tarim Basin?

The Mystery of Stone Circles - Paul Mason


Lundy Island, from Lundy, Isle of Avalon by Mystic Realms

Giant's Graves on Lundy island

During harvest time in 1851 islanders on Lundy discovered two immense granite coffins,  one of them said to have been ten feet long the other eight.

When these sarcophagi were opened, the excavators found the skeletons of two eight feet tall humans, seven other skeletons of normal stature and other assorted human bones. Either in the coffins themselves or beside them, sources vary, were found some pale blue stone beads and some fragments of pottery. The date attributed to the beads, and also the graves, is anywhere from Roman times to the 14th century. The beads were apparently sent to Bristol Museum but there seems to be no record of what happened to the human remains.

http://genuki.cs.ncl.ac.uk/DEV/LundyIsland/LundyMurray1879.html
LUNDY ISLAND From A Handbook for Travellers in Devonshire (9th ed.),
London, J. Murray. (1879)

The island is about 3½ m. long, and very irregular in breadth, averaging about ½ m. It contains nearly 3000 acres. The surface is undulating table-land, rising to about 500 ft. at the lighthouse. There is only one safe landing-place, at the S.E. end, where there is a little bay with good anchorage. Until steamers came into play, "the difficulty of getting to Lundy was only exceeded by the difficulty of getting away. A sudden shift of wind has often kept visitors for weeks; and one amusing instance is on record of a party composed of the incumbents of 5 or 6 parishes on the adjoining coast, who had combined for a day's excursion and investigation of the wonders of Lundy, being detained there over two Sundays, to the dismay of their respective congregations." *

Lundy seems to have had a "primaeval" population: since flint flakes and pottery have been found in and near the many small tumuli which dot the surface.

A sepulchral kistvaen - a block of granite, raised on two upright slabs - was found, a little below the surface, in 1851. A fragment of pottery remained below, but there were no traces of bone.

Hubba Skeleton

A large area at the back of the farm is covered with outbuildings, not in the best condition in fact, they look as
though they had been put up with a view to greater agricultural developments than have as yet made their appear-
ance and then neglected.

They are all, as is the Manor House itself, of modern date some, indeed, erected within the last few years.

It was while some of these " improvements" were in progress that the workmen made a curious discovery.

While digging foundations for the wall of the  rickyard, they came upon a pair of kistvaens, or stone coffins, built of granite, and each covered with a large slab.

The larger grave was loft, in length, and provided with a lump or pillow of granite, hollowed out for the reception of
the head of a gigantic skeleton which lay within. The feet rested on another block. The smaller cist, which also con-
tained a skeleton, was but 8ft. long, and differed from the other in having no head or foot rest. Both were covered
with a pile of limpet shells.

Mr. Heaven was sent for, and the skeletons carefully measured.

The larger had a stature of 8ft. 2in.

Mr. Heaven was present the whole time, and not only saw the measurement taken, but, as he himself told me,
saw one of the men place the shin-bone of the skeleton against his own, when it reached from his foot half-way up
his thigh, while the giant's jaw-bone covered not only his chin, but beard as well.

The skeleton in the smaller cist,
although that of a very tall person, was thought little of beside that of the giant.


Mr. Heaven, who has some knowledge of anatomy, considered it to be that of a woman.

Close by seven other skeletons were discovered, but these were of ordinary stature, and buried without stone
coverings.

At the end of the line lay a great quantity of the bones of men, women, and children, buried in one common grave.

Some glass and copper beads and one of gold were found with these bones, and a few fragments of pottery. Some of these were preserved, and the bones were then covered up.

As Mr. Chanter says, "it is most difficult to assign an era or to account for this sepulture ; the remains of women and children precluding the idea of its betokening the slain in battle, but rather the indiscriminate slaughter of an entire population." Still, as he points out, this does not explain the peculiar character and contents of the kistvaens.

These he refers to the Celtic period. But did the Celts produce such giants as the pair interred in these stone coffins?
I fancy not.

Mr. Heaven exclaimed, when he saw the larger skeleton, " the bones of Hubba the Dane !"
and the proportions are certainly rather Scandinavian than Celtic. Undoubtedly it was the custom of the Danes to remove their more honoured dead, and Lundy was "the nearest point to which the defeated army and ships could retreat."
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Amazing City Of Giants Found Off Georgia Coast

A gigantic walled city off the coast of Georgia has been found near Sapelo Island. The city is thought to be older than the famous Egyptian Pyramids of Giza. Ancient American Indian legends refer to the walled city where the giants 'with hair like red flames' dwelled. Across the tribal lands of what is now the South and Southwestern United States, the red-haired giants were known and feared. The legends claim the city was destroyed by pieces of the Moon falling to Earth.

The Sapelo Shell Ring Complex

Archeologists have made an amazing underwater find about six hours off the coast of Georgia—a legendary, ancient walled city discussed by many Native American tribes over sputtering campfires for untold generations.

The Sapelo Shell Ring Complex, as it's called, is older than many of the structures of ancient Egypt. The city is at least 4,400 years old, and perhaps much older than that.

The city was constructed on land before the seas rose to swallow it up, so it was likely built during one of the last smaller Ice Ages before the icecap retreated (creating the stories of the Great Flood).

That places the origin of the city and its heyday in the middle of the period when giants ruled parts of the Earth from South and Central America to southern North America, parts of Asia, and pockets of Eastern and Western Europe.

While most Homo Sapiens at the time were barely five feet tall, and many were in the four-foot range, the giants were big even by modern day standards.

The race of giants, according to Native American tales, recovered skeletons, and ancient tools, towered far above average humans. The men were as tall as 10 to 12 feet and many of the women reached nine feet or taller.

...
Men of Myth often attained gigantic stature as their stories were retold, the list of their achievements and physical attributes often sounding like a title or an impressive string of letters after a learned mans name. Whether any of the giants mentioned so far are stories of men blown out of proportion or just local folklore of a different source is not known but another giant by the name of Bevis Of Hampton. The Hampton is thought to be Southampton but Bevis is usually linked with the town of Arundel as that was the name of his horse, Hirondelle.

His sword, which goes by the name of Morglay is 5 ft 9 in tall and is currently kept in the armoury (or library) of Arundel Castle, from the battlements of which he threw the sword to mark his place of burial. There are three seperate barrows which have claim to be the spot where the sword fell :

Bevis's Grave (SU 692064) is a long barrow near Havant, Hampshire.
Bevis's Thumb (SU 787155) is a long barrow near the Sussex village of Compton, which is not too far from the border with Hampshire.
Bevis's Tomb (TQ 0108) is a possible long barrow in Arundel Park near the castle, by far the closest of the three.

Bevis was employed as a warden of the castle and was payed with a whole ox, two hogshead of beer as well as bread and mustard (according to one story) each week. He was said to be able to walk from Southampton to the Isle of Wight without getting his head wet. On the way from Arundel to Southampton lies Bosham where Bevis stopped to wash his dogs. Bosham church is said to have contained his staff which he left there as a keepsake. Bevis is mentioned as the hero in a poem from the fourteenth century, ample time to grow a few feet in the retelling. Part of the castle was named 'Bevis Tower' after him, though some think that this name came from someone called Bevis who fought at the Battle of Lewes.

''A Sword called Morglay'


http://home.ix.netcom.com/~kiyoweap/myth/arms-weap/morglay.htm

On the right is shown a huge sword measuring 5 ft 9 inches purported to be Bevis' sword is kept in the library (armory?) of Arundel Castle in Sussex.
The contention that Bevis was localized here is contrary to the suppostion that Bevis of Hampton hails from Southampton in Hampshire. The magazine issue that carried the photo also featured an article by Arthur Beckett "The Ballad of Sir Bevis of Arundel " in defense of the Sussex pedigree for Bevis (this ballad seems to be a parady of or a take on Grubb's St. George for England collected by Percy.)
(Cf. Sussex Archaeology & Folklore: giants, David Staveley.)

The Aldworth Giants

The tiny atmospheric parish church at Aldworth, contains numerous huge effigies of the De La Beche family. The figures are supposed to be life size representations, depicting knights all over seven feet tall. The De La Beche family were powerful landowners and knights in the 14th century. Many of them were retainers to the king, warders to the Tower of London, and Sheriffs of Oxfordshire and Berkshire.
...
Folklore
 According to tradition the giants were known by other names: John Long, John Strong, John Never Afraid and John Ever Afraid.

http://www.visitnewbury.org.uk/thedms.aspx?dms=13&feature=1&venue=2973894
...
The connection between the De la Beche family and the church becomes more evident when you enter the interior. Here stand a remarkable collection of eight stone effigies known as the ‘Aldworth Giants’. Six of these lie under decorated canopies, three against the northern wall of the church and three against its southern wall. Two more effigies, without canopies, lie between the arcade arches. All the effigies represent members of the De la Beche family, one female and the rest knights. Although an attempt has been made to identify the individuals represented, the reality is that there is little evidence to support the identities given.

It is thought that the effigies were created in two episodes, and it is possible that the reason for their construction was an attempt to immortalise the family as the male line died out. The stone used is probably from the Burford area in Oxfordshire. Records suggest that the quality of the effigies was well known in antiquity and Elizabeth I visited the church to see them.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manus_O'Cahan's_Regiment
Manus O'Cahan's Regiment of Foot was a Scots Irish regiment which served during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms in the mid-1640s.
...
Scottish events of the war were complex. By the Civil War of the mid-seventeenth century there was already a centuries old blood feud running between the Campbell and Macdonald clans. As part of that feud, the Campbells had seized ownership of the Hebridean isles of Islay and Colonsey from an aged warrior called Colkitto (known as Col Ciottoch, Scots Gaelic for he who fights with both hands, as he was ambidextrous).

Colkitto’s son was the 7-foot-tall (2.1 m) Alastair McColla, who went to Ireland to raise the Irish cousins to the Macdonald clan for raids against the men who now occupied the Hebridean Isles.
...
In one Ulster battle, McColla was badly wounded. O’Cahan personally dragged his giant [7-foot-tall (2.1 m)] friend to safety through heavy fire on a makeshift litter and got him some urgently needed medical attention. It was in order to raise an army to quell the rebellion in Ireland that King Charles initially had recalled his Parliament in England. When his Parliament refused to co-operate with the King, his efforts to accuse them of treason against the crown led to the English portion of the Civil War.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alastair_McColla

Alasdair Mac Colla (c. 1610–1647) was a Scottish soldier. His full name in Scottish Gaelic was Alasdair Mac Colla Chiotaich Mac Domhnuill (English: Alasdair the son of Colla the Left-handed MacDonald). He is sometimes mistakenly referred to in English as "Collkitto", a nickname that properly belongs to his father. He fought in the Wars of the Three Kingdoms, most notably in Scotland. He died at the Battle of Knocknanauss in 1647.

...
Alasdair was knighted by the Earl of Montrose on behalf of Charles I in 1645 for his outstanding contribution to the Royalist campaign in Scotland. His family home was in Ballypatrick, Culfeightrin in County Antrim. His wife was Elizabeth daughter of McAllister of Loupe. He was said to be forty two years old at his death in 1647 - but he may have been as young as 32. His three sons survived him - Colla a’ Voulin (of the mill), Gillaspic Mor, and John of Tanaughconny, all of whom married and had children.

Gillaspic ( or Archibald) was Lord of Murlogh and Kilmore in 1662. He had his father's giant stature (7 feet 2 inches) and was the only son to bear arms. He was a Captain in the Earl of Antrim's regiment in King James' army.

 At the Battle of Aughrim (August 1691), despite serious wounds, his extraordinary fighting prowess extricated the regiment from disaster. He died in 1720 aged 88 years.

As the old saying goes: "Truth is stranger than fiction."

I've been studying viking Saxon/Danish/Northman Norway "proto" history and I am constantly amazed how little is known :

Notice how both Runes and Ogham script is related to Greek alphabet and that Saxons were also Northmen, that were considered remnants of Alexander the Greats' Greek Army. Alexander in his conquests went about collecting all the secret knowledge of the eastern conquests he could. The Hebrew's lost tribes may well have been liberated by Alexander from bondage of the Babylonians.  When Alexander died they brought his body (and his knowledge?) to Alexandria, Later Cleopatra was courted by Ceasar for the ancient knowledge (that Alexander had collected?)...

The Viking Age- the early history, manners, and customs...

ORIGIN OF NAME ENGLAND. 19

That the history of the people called Saxons was by no means certain is seen in the fact that Witikind, a monk of the tenth
century, gives the following account of what was then considered to be their origin 1 :

" On this there are various opinions, some thinking that the Saxons had their origin from the Danes and Northmen ;
others, as I heard some one maintain when a young man, that they are derived from the Greeks, because they themselves
used to say the Saxons were the remnant of the Macedonian army, which, having followed Alexander the Great, were by
his premature death dispersed all over the world
."
...
In the Sagas the term England was applied to a portion only of Britain, the inhabitants of which were called Englar,
Enskirmenn. Britain itself is called Bretland, and the people Bretar.
...

http://www.truthinhistory.org/the-promises-to-the-fathers.html
[The Promises to the Fathers - Truth in History -

Now the Hebrew word for covenant is BRIT or BRET, and the word for island in Hebrew is AI, whence comes our English word Is-land. Hence BRIT-AI or Brit-ain, according to its Hebrew etymology, means covenant-island, or the island of the covenant. Paul B. Du Chaillu says in "The Viking Age"

 Now Bret-land means literally covenant-land, or the land of the covenant, as Britain means the island of the covenant. .... But, in addition to this, consider the following truths: The Hebrew word for man is ISH. Hence BRIT-ISH means literally covenant-man, or man of the covenant. The islands to the northwest of Britain are called Hebrides to this day. Why? How did they get that name? The simple and rational explanation is that they were settled and named by the Hebrews. ]

It is an important fact that throughout the Saga literature  describing the expeditions of the Northmen to England not a
single instance is mentioned of their coming in contact with a people called Saxons, which shows that such a name in Britain
was unknown to the people of the North. Nor is any part of England called Saxland.

Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Frederick Kempster - the 'English Giant'? By Emma Stanley
BBC News





He was known as the English Giant, but could also have been called the Friendly Giant.

He was Frederick John Kempster, and he joined Astley and Company's American Circus at Chigwell in Essex as a professional giant in June 1911 - not as a "freak" but because he loved people.

"It is said he was a happy, well-adjusted chap who liked to talk to the public," said his great-nephew Jim Kempster.

...
He was born in 1889, died in Blackburn's Queen's Park Hospital in 1918 and was buried in the town's cemetery in a 9ft (2.7m) coffin
...
Kempster was in the Guinness Book of Records from 1967 to 1993 as one of the tallest men in England, where he was reported to have measured 8ft 4.5in at the time of his death.

Photographic evidence, however, suggests that his height was 7ft 8.5in (2.35m).
...
"By the autumn of 1913 he stood slightly over 7ft 9in, and his picture, taken while visiting family in Bath, appeared in newspapers all over the world." ...
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Rephaim23 on December 24, 2011 at 7:05 am said:


In the year 1994 the bones of a giant man 7 feet tall, and a woman over 6 feet tall were found near Thirsk Castle, England. Evidently a population of “Saxon giants” once lived in the area:

 http://www.thirskmuseum.org/giant.htm
 http://yorkshire.greatbritishlife.co.uk/article/thirsk-enter-a-land-of-giants-and-curses-and-re-discover-this-north-yorkshire-market-town-22860/
 
“Archaeologist Demands Respect for Giants’ Bones

 Bones pointing to the existence of a community of “Saxon giants” in north Yorkshire go on display next month despite a protest from the archaeologist who found them.

 The part-skeletons are an extraordinary find. Dug up from a sixth-century Saxon cemetery discovered beneath the ruins of Thirsk Castle, they indicate a seven-foot-tall man and a woman more than six feet in height. A number of children were also buried there.
 
“These bones could explain why there are quite a number of hefty Yorkshiremen about,” said Cooper Harding, curator at Thirsk Museum, where the remains will be displayed.
 
You can imagine the terror of the native Celtic farmers, who were quite short, when confronted by these giants.”
 
But Leslie Webster, a curator at the British Museum, specialising in the early Anglo-Saxon period, said last night: “Saxons were not particularly tall. These bones are certainly not normal. It would not be a normal height for any period of British history.”
 
The cemetery was discovered by archaeologist Anne Finney five years ago by pure chance during a routine dig among the castle ramparts. But the artefacts have been kept hidden from the public, stored in vaults and seen only by academics. Ms Finney, who runs a firm called Map Archaeological Consultancy, handed them over to the Yorkshire Archaeological Trust.
 
Thirsk Museum lobbied intensely for the bones and items of jewellery – including a stunning bronze cruciform brooch and early Saxon pottery – to be handed over and put on public display. It finally won after a five-year battle.
 
But Ms Finney is unhappy with the museum’s plans. “It was a very good find. But the bones should not be on display. You should treat human remains with reverence.”
 
Mr Harding said: “Our display will be restrained and thoughtful. But as you can see, it is the bones which capture the interest of the public.”

http://www.thirskmuseum.org/giant.htm



The foot (above) and parts of a skull (below) were recovered during excavations of a Saxon burial ground at Castle Garth, near the Museum. Measurements of the leg bones show that the person stood nearly seven feet tall. Thirsk’s “Saxon Giant” can be seen in the Reynolds Room on the first floor of the Museum.



http://www.thirskpastandpresent.co.uk/bd1-3.htm
...
In the summer of 1994 an archaeological excavation took place on this part of the site in connection with the installation of a sub-station by Northern Electric. The dig revealed a hitherto undetected sixth-century burial site.

This discovery confirmed the belief that Thirsk existed as a settlement long before the arrival of the Normans in the late 11th century.

When the Roman Legions were withdrawn from northern Britain in AD 402 there were already people from the north-western part of Europe settled here as part of the Roman army and as time went by they were joined by more immigrants from across the North Sea.

The folk settling in Yorkshire were Angles rather than Saxons and by AD 560 an Anglian chieftain called Aella ruled over a north-eastern kingdom called Deira.

The graves found here belong to the first half of the sixth century and the artifacts associated with them are in a typically Anglian style.

The archaeologists found that graves had been disturbed at a later date, probably when the castle ditch was dug, but had not been robbed. From the size of the bones found in one of the graves we know that the man buried there stood about seven feet - well over two metres - tall. Were there giants in those days?

Full details of the 1994 dig and the finds from the site can be found at Thirsk Museum in Kirkgate.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deira
Deira (Old English: Derenrice or Dere) was a kingdom in Northern England which probably emerged when Anglian warriors conquered the Derwent Valley in the third quarter of the fifth century.[1] It extended from the Humber to the Tees, and from the sea to the western edge of the Vale of York. It was the southern of the two kingdoms of Deira and Bernicia which later merged to form the kingdom of Northumbria.
...
The first Anglian king of Deira of whom we have any record is Ælla, who flourished in the later 6th century after conquering the realm from the Britons in 581

http://www.historyfiles.co.uk/KingListsEurope/ScandinaviaAngeln.htm

...
A list of the kings of Angeln has been preserved in the Old English epic poems, Beowulf (telling the story of a prince of the Geats) and Widsith, both of which probably provided source material for the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. Some names were added in the seventh to ninth centuries by chroniclers trying to make sense of the oral traditions they were writing down. They seem to have been famous figures in their own right, existing in pre-migration Frisia and Denmark.
...
Woden is claimed as an ancestor figure by many of the Anglian, Jutish and Saxon tribes which later migrate to Britain. Is it possible that this semi-mythical figure represents a powerful Anglian king whose many sons and their descendants find or create positions of power as the Anglian peoples fragment before and during their migration? Those claiming him as an ancestor include the descendants of Baeldaeg, Benoc, Caser, Waegdaeg and Wehta, while the kings of Lindsey claim direct descent from him.

http://www.historyfiles.co.uk/KingListsEurope/ScandinaviaMinorPrinces.htm

Minor Anglian, Jutish & Saxon Princes

Woden, legendary king of Angeln, is claimed as an ancestor figure by many of the Anglian, Jutish and Saxon tribes which migrated to Britain. Although entirely impossible to prove, one theory is that this semi-mythical figure represents a powerful Anglian king whose many sons and their descendants found or created positions of power as the Anglian peoples fragmented before and during their migration.
...
Waegdaeg's Folk

One of the sons of Woden, king of Angeln,

Wægdæg was the originator of the line of princes which migrated to Britain in the fourth to fifth centuries and created the Anglian kingdom of Deira based on an existing British territory known as Deywr.
 
Wægdæg / Waegdaeg
 Son of Woden of Angeln. Originator of the Deiran Angles
.
 
 Sigegar  Son.
 Swebdaeg  Son.
 Sigegeat  Son.
 
c.420
 Sæbald / Saebald
 Son. Led the Angles as laeti into Deywr?
 
c.420
 Saebald apparently leads his people into Deywr in Britain to settle as laeti. In 559, his descendant founds the independent Anglian kingdom of Deira.

Much of our true history has been and is still concealed from us in the attempt to control us. As it has been said "knowledge is power" and is as true today as ever it was, maybe more so.

Ancient Giants who ruled America

The Ancient Giants Who Ruled America: The Missing Skeletons and the Great Smithsonian cover-up

A 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.

I always like these stories when they (archeologists)  find a "giant" they invariably say they found a "tall man"
also they never ever say how "tall" he is ,,, but it is assumed over 6 foot and more likely over 7 foot ...

Interesting here is that Varna in 400 AD was land of the Thracians and Dacians ,,, conquered by the Romans then  made Christian and also see Ulfilas... These are the "Visi-Goths" that later sacked Rome....

 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sack_of_Rome_(410)
The Sack of Rome occurred on August 24, 410. The city was attacked by the Visigoths, led by Alaric I. At that time, Rome was no longer the capital of the Western Roman Empire, having been replaced in this position by Ravenna in 402.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulfilas
... was a Goth of Greek descent from Cappadocia who had spent time inside the Roman Empire at the peak of the Arian controversy.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Bulgaria
...
Sometime before 300 AD, Diocletian further divided Thracia into four smaller provinces. Later in the 4th century, a group of Goths arrived in northern Bulgaria and settled in and around Nicopolis ad Istrum. There the Gothic bishop Ulfilas translated the Bible from Greek to Gothic, creating the Gothic alphabet in the process. This was the first book written in a Germanic language, and for this reason at least one historian refers to Ulfilas as "the father of Germanic literature





http://pacmusee.qc.ca/en/exhibitions/varna-worlds-first-gold-ancient-secrets
...

In the 1st century
The conquering Romans

As the Roman Empire extended all the way to the shores of the Black Sea, in the year 15 Odessos became part of the Roman province of Moesia, just above the province of Thrace. The conquerors endowed the city with new fortifications and superb thermal baths, the fourth largest in the Empire.

Starting in the 4th century

The emergence of Christianity... under Constantine

In 313, the Roman emperor Constantine the Great converted to
Christianity, making it the official religion of the entire Empire. The first Bulgarians were very reluctant to abandon their pagan gods, however: it wasn't until the 9th century that King Boris I finally agreed to convert. By 395 the Empire had become ungovernable, and was divided between West and East—with the Byzantine Empire, centred in Constantinople, now holding sway.

 Archaeologists Dig Up Ancient Skeleton from under Odessos Fortress Wall in Bulgaria’s Varna

March 17, 2015 · by Ivan Dikov · in Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Ancient Thrace   · Leave a comment



Bulgarian archaeologists have discovered a tall man’s skeleton during rescue excavations of the ancient Greek and Roman city of Odessos in the downtown of the Black Sea city of Varna

The large human skeleton has been found in a grave partly located under the fortress wall of Odessos, which is being excavated by archaeologists from the Varna Museum of Archaeology (also called Varna Regional Museum of History).

The skeleton is dated back to the late 4th century or the early 5th century AD, according to Dr. Valeri Yotov who is in charge of the rescue excavations of Varna’s ancient city of Odessos.
...
The working hypothesis of the Varna archaeologists is that the skeleton belongs to a man who died during the construction of the fortress wall of ancient Odessos, and that his remains were laid in a pit originally dug up as a construction ditch for the wall foundations which was also “utilized” as a grave.
/..
Further evidence of a burial, according to the Varna archaeologists, is that the tall man’s skeleton lies in an east-west position, and his hands are placed on his waist.

Some have even been quick to describe the ancient man as a representative of the “long extinct race of Atlantis giants”.


“There are no indications that this man was a vampire, an Atlantis giant, or anything like that,” archaeologist Valeri Yotov has commented jokingly, apparently referring to a host of discoveries in Bulgaria in recent years of impaled medieval skeletons, apparently to protect them from turning into vampires after their deaths

9-foot tall Ivar the Boneless' skeleton was never found, but the other findings are impressive.
Viking Repton (9th century AD)
"250 year-old reports of a mass burial discovered around 1686 by a labourer named Thomas Walker who was seeking stone in a close west of the church. The original account seemed so fantastical as to be beyond belief, but it stated that Walker found a two-roomed subterranean structure some 15 ft square, originally roofed by 'decayed wooden joyces'.  Inside, the astonished rustic found a stone coffin, containing 'a Skeleton of a Humane Body Nine Foot long.'"

http://www.reptonchurch.org.uk/Vikings.htm

...
As part of their operations in the village they investigated 250 year-old reports of a mass burial discovered around 1686 by a labourer named Thomas Walker who was seeking stone in a close west of the church.   The original account seemed so fantastical as to be beyond belief, but it stated that Walker found a two-roomed subterranean structure some 15 ft square, originally roofed by 'decayed wooden joyces'.   Inside, the astonished rustic found a stone coffin, containing 'a Skeleton of a Humane Body Nine Foot long.'   Around this singular interment were 'One Hundred Humane Skeletons, with their Feet pointing to the Stone Coffin.'   Walker removed the skull of the main burial, but this was soon lost.   He also revealed that the floor of the sunken building was stone-paved, and in the outer wall was the frame of a doorway, with steps leading down into the western room.
...
When Walker stumbled upon this amazing collective burial he had rummaged among the bone stack, dismantled the primary burial and subsequently taken away much of the stonework of the walls.   Biddle's careful reinvestigation found many items missed by the earlier delvers, including a fine iron axe, a sword blade, two large seaxes, a key, chisel, and five silver pennies, all minted between 872-4, and securely dating the deposit to the Viking occupation of Repton between 873-4.
