Dug Out of a Cellar on Elkwell Creek. Kentucky Skeleton of a Man Eight Feet High
Lexington, Ky., Nov. 9. John Winter, of Bell county, last week, while digging a cellar at his home, on Elkwell Creek, excavated a giant mummy. The mummy was that of a man eight feet high, and wrapped in a winding cloth of skins. It was placed in a canoe-like coffin, and crumbled away upon being exposed to the air. At the head of the giant were a stone hatchet and a few cooking utensils and a large hollow stone, which presumably contained food. At his feet was a skin shield, which had also crumbled to dust. 8-foot mummy

You would think after paying a visit to the “Tallest Man” website that an eight footer is quite common. However, today there is only 3 people living that are over eight feet tall. That’s 3 people out of 7 billion on our entire planet. The truth is eight foot people are very common, very common in the past.
