Akron, Summit County, Ohio Skeletons


Akron, Ohio., September 10, – Bones of a prehistoric giant were found in a newly discovered cave in the quarry near here. Also the bones of a bear were discovered. The human bones of the giant are of great value to scientists, as the man must have been over eight feet in height,

A man over 8 feet is indeed important to scientist, because of population constraints there cannot be a single 8 foot human in the past if the story on man from monkey is to be favored. There are only 3 eight footers in the world today out of 7 Billion people, but 8 footers are a dime a dozen in the past.
