A Giant Race?
fA skeleton, eight feet tall and presumably that of a woman has been discovered near Lewiston, Idaho, in the Salmon river country. Anthropologists will examine the remains to ascertain if the prehistoric inhabitants the inhabitant were a race of supermen and superwomen.
The skeleton has many strange features, among them jaws having but twenty teeth, ten on the upper jaw and ten on the lower jaw. The jaws are apparently intact and no teeth are missing.
The skeleton caused consternation because of its size. Rarely was a human skeleton found over 7 feet in height it was reported.
The discovery of an eight-foot-tall skeleton near Lewiston, Idaho, reported in the Portsmouth Herald in 1924, is another remarkable find in the long list of historical accounts documenting giant human skeletons. Such discoveries have been made across the world, ranging from the Americas to Europe, Asia, and beyond. While some skeptics might dismiss these findings as hoaxes or misidentifications, the preponderance of evidence suggests otherwise.
Anthropologists will examine this latest find to determine if the prehistoric inhabitants of the area were a race of supermen and superwomen. The skeleton’s unusual features, including jaws with only twenty teeth instead of the usual thirty-two, make this an intriguing possibility.
Despite the consternation caused by the size of the skeleton, reports of giant human skeletons were not uncommon in the 19th and early 20th centuries. These accounts offer invaluable insights into a world that was vastly different from our own and challenge our preconceived notions of what is possible. As a dedicated researcher, I am committed to exploring the evidence and uncovering the truth about giants and their place in our history. It is my hope that these findings will not be dismissed without further investigation.
