A mound near Liverpool, Illinois was recently opened and several skeletons of very large men were found. The skulls were so large that they would go over an ordinary man’s head, covering t to the shoulders. There was also found a small steel anvil, perfect in form and so hard that a file made little impression on it. Also a set of false teeth, of copper and ivory, large enough for a giant and of excellent workmanship.
