The theory of the existence of giants that roamed on Earth thousands of years ago is a highly discussed topic among ancient astronaut theorists. There are legends of giants in many ancient cultures throughout the world but with time, they have become a myth. In the last century, many artifacts and evidence of abnormally large bones showed up that sparked the theories which say that the giant beings lived among humans thousands of years ago.
In the 1800s, it was common knowledge in the United States that there were burial mounds at numerous sites containing the bones of giant humans, and even Abraham Lincoln mentioned this once in a speech given at Niagara Falls in 1848.
“When Columbus first sought this continent – when Christ suffered on the cross – when Moses led Israel through the Red Sea – nay, even when Adam first came from the hand of his Maker – then as now, Niagara was roaring here. The eyes of that species of extinct giants, whose bones fill the mounds of America, have gazed on Niagara, as ours do now.” Was Lincoln referring to giant humans or extinct animals, i.e. dinosaurs?
Did Giant humans roam Ancient America in the past? Did the Native Americans have a royal class of giant rulers entombed in massive burial mounds? There are many translations and modern-day explanations for stories written in the Biblical text. Among them are tales of giants that lived among the “normal” sized humans.
“There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which [were] of old, men of renown.” — The King James version of Genesis 6:4.
Across the United States, there are burial mounds, or at least their remnants, some as extensive in size as the Great Pyramid of Giza. The Cahokia and Monk’s mounds in Illinois and Missouri are two thought to have been built before the arrival of Columbus. The Cahokia mound is 100 feet tall with a 14-acre base, almost an entire acre larger than the pyramid at Giza. Monk’s Mound is just as tall with a 1,000-foot-wide base. But what makes these and other mounds of their kind even more intriguing is what has been found buried inside them.

Jim Vieira, a star of History Channel’s “Search for the Lost Giants” explored the mystery behind these mounds with his brother Bill Vieira. According to the Vieira brothers, they found “one important account from the 1895 ‘Town History of Deerfield, Massachusetts,’ written by noted historian George Sheldon, of an 8-foot skeleton with double rows of teeth that was unearthed… and the skull was as big as a peck basket.”
“We then read through thousands of pages of town and county histories in New England and found many more [similar accounts],” of discoveries of several rows of teeth. “It might be a genetic connection to the past. I’ve seen accounts that describe proportional individuals 10, 11, 12 feet tall. There are multiple accounts of multiple skulls found with double rows of teeth, “Jim Vieira said.
Jim Vieira did a TEDx talk video: “Stone Builders, Mound Builders and the Giants of Ancient America,” which was somehow removed from the Internet without any explanation. (Here you can watch the deleted video)
Vieira, a stonemason by trade, found himself intrigued after finding a plethora of mysterious stone mounds throughout New England. The Vieira brothers make several references to Smithsonian Ethnology Reports from the 1800s, which describe accounts of alleged giants with multiple rows of teeth. But with no actual physical evidence offered to the public about such claims.
Smithsonian scientists identified at least 17 skeletons that stood at over seven feet in their annual reports, including one example that was 8 feet tall, and a skull with a 36-inch circumference (an average human skull has a circumference of about 20 inches). The Smithsonian Institution is mentioned dozens more times as the recipient of enormous skeletons from across the United States.
In late 2014, an article from a satirical website claimed that a Supreme Court ruling forced the Smithsonian Institution to admit to the historic destruction of giant skeletons. It was published not long after Vieira’s Search for the Lost Giants TV show that aired on History Channel. The headline read: “Smithsonian Admits to Destruction of Thousands of Giant Human Skeletons in the early 1900s.” The article was convincing, and this apparent exposé of the National Museum hit a chord with people.
Most of the reports Jim Vieira uncovered are from well-known newspapers such as The Washington Post and The New York Times, but they began their analysis with this account from The Worthington Advance (November 18, 1897, pg.3) that describes the ethnological work of the Smithsonian Institution’s Division of Eastern Mounds and quotes the Director of the Bureau of Ethnology at the time, John Wesley Powell. The image below accompanies the news report.
As part of the Search for the Lost Giants show, Jim and fellow researcher James Clary investigated the following account that had this heading: “An Ancient Ozark Giant Dug Up Near Steelville,” which was covered by The Steelville Ledger in their June 11, 1933 report, according to Jim Vieira.
The Smithsonian Institution is continually linked to giant skeletons or at least the lack of them. Most of the reports end in something like this: “The bones were shipped to the Smithsonian Institution for further study.” This ongoing problem of the “missing bones” has become a matter of legend, as there are dozens of reports of the Smithsonian receiving artifacts and giant skeletons.
