8’6″ Utah Giant

utah salt lake city The gigantic skeleton of a man, measuring 8 feet 6 inches in height, was found near the Jordan river, just outside Salt Lake City, last week. The find was made by a workman who was digging an irrigation ditch. The skull was uncovered at a depth of eight feet from the surface of the ground, and the skeleton was standing bolt upright. The workman had to dig down nine feet in order to exhume it. The bones were much decayed and crumbled at the slightest touch. They were gathered with great care, and the skeleton was found to measure 8 feet 6 inches in height; the skull measured 11 inches in diameter, and the feet 19 inches long. A copper chain to which was attached three medallions covered with curious hieroglyphics was around the neck of the skeleton, and near it were found a stone hammer, some pieces of pottery, an arrowhead, and some copper medals. Archaeologists believe that the original owner of the skeleton belonged to the race of mound builders.
