Wheeling West Virginia., – While digging a grave on Trace Fork, Lincoln County, a few days ago the bones of a human being of gigantic stature and proportions were exhumed. The skeleton is in a good state of preservation and the outlines of the frame sufficiently defined to determine that the stature of the person must have been nine or ten feet. The skull and other bones also indicate prodigious size. No one now living has any knowledge of the grave or its occupant. and all indications point to its belonging to some prehistoric race of giants contemporary with mastadons, fossil remains of which have been found in many parts of the country.
The discovery of a human skeleton of gigantic proportions in Lincoln County, West Virginia, is yet another piece of evidence supporting the existence of a prehistoric race of giants. The good state of preservation of the skeleton, as well as its prodigious size, suggest that this race might have been contemporary with mastodons, whose fossil remains have been found in many parts of the country. The discovery is a testament to the vast and mysterious history of our world, and further research and preservation of these finds are necessary to unlock the secrets of our past.
