The comparative height of an 8 ft giant found in South Africa near Pretoria in 1928-29. ~Rephaim23 ancient and modern man
~ One of my favorite search-sites only goes up to 1922, so 1929, what I need access to is missing. From what I read there is more information in this edition on giant humans and giant animals as well. I am curious as to why this was taken away. It seems sometimes that editions, and pages that I need are frequently missing or are dad scans, double prints etcetera. I did a search and found it on a paid site, I believe this comes from page 32 and there is a lot more stpry that I would like to add to this post once I can access it. ancient and modern man

I have the source. I think it was a news story on the bones of an 8 foot prehistoric giant found near Pretoria in I think 1928-29. I will find it for you.
I found the source: Ogden Standard Examiner Mar 17, 1929 page 23.
Thanks, I hope you find some information you can use here as well. Rephaim23. I would like for you to show up on the opening of this museum which should be sometime in 2012. I may push the grand opening party to the end of the year. I am not sure where you are located, and what you have going on, but i would like to have you show up. I am hoping everyone will bring something to display at the museum, so they will sponsor an item. It would be great to have your name there seeing that you are well known over the internet. I am not sure if i told you what i do for a living, i am a theme-park artist, i build sets and displays for theme parks and museums. There will be many people that are my friends that are also in theming that will be making display contributions. The season is ripe for this and many of the items that have been stolen from public view are going to be replicated and seen as they were again.
Sounds cool. I’ll let you know.
The skeleton of a 10 foot man was reportedly dug up 10 miles from Johannesburg, South Africa in 1930.
