The Establishment Has Already Acknowledged A Lost Race of Giants - Part 1

(Read the article on one page)

Currently there are a slew of books, DVDs and even at least one TV show documenting the exploits of modern hunters who are “on the trail” of the anomalous dead, who insist that if at least one of these skeletons could be found and presented to the “experts” it would somehow alter the professed paradigm of the establishment itself. However, as we will demonstrate in part 2, the “experts” have already rediscovered, photographed, and measured these types of remains.

Is there an “a” missing between the t and the w ?

Absence of evidence does not mean evidence of absence. Having said that proof must be provided one day. Hopefully we can do that this year... type in 'tangatwhenua16' and get onto their website.

To discredit EVERYTHING that doesn't fit into people's square box of knowledge and scientific data would be ludicrous. Before forming an opinion that there is NO scientific data... do your own digging. serious research. There are numerous 1800's /early 1900's newspaper articles of HUNDREDS if not thousands of giant skeletons found throughout the US, Europe and Asia. New York times has quite a few spread throughout the 1890's ... you can double check articles found online with your local library with their newspaper directory (almost all should contain a NEW YORK TIMES history back up until the civil war, if not further). (The old fashioned way with projector and slides) Also not EVERY photo is photo shopped on the internet, it's about discernment. Because of dozens upon dozens of reports over hundreds of gravesites, it should not be flippantly dismissed as an anomaly or genetic mutation. The consistent similarities indicate that this may actually be an entire race. ( Again re-read the individual accounts on different newspaper articles, local sites, locations, previous museum exhibits - for which there are photographic evidence) Back in the 1800's any significant find was to directly notify the local/federal government, which then turned the investigation over to the Smithsonian if it was of any consequence. Again, don't take my word for this... if this subject truly piques your interest.... start doing some of your own digging. I do know that bones/ artifacts, when they have been under water or unearthed from packed soil after extraordinarily long periods of time; only to be exposed to oxygen- can crumble within hours of discovery. (commonly happens to sunken Viking era ships and has to be meticulously maintained while being quickly transported to an environment / temperature controlled room.) whilst it is common to have your doubts about a "new" subject that has neither been broached nor taught about during childhood... it should also be in your instinct to try and chase the subject to find clues and use discernment as a scientist would rather than automatically slamming the subject/ thought from existence. just because you haven't seen it with your own two eyes.... doesn't mean it has NEVER existed. but the opposite is also true... just because you've always HEARD tales about it, does not necessarily make it truth. Use your sleuthing skills people .... and open your minds a bit... after all- science is all about discovery and posing questions.... "A wise man knows he knows nothing, whereas a fool believes he knows everything" - Chinese proverb/ Socrates (Just my two cents)

What the statistics above show is that every planet orbits the sun and if you are standing on each of the planets, these are the number of days each planet would have in a year or for the time it would take for that planet to circle the sun. The statistics very clearly indicate that the planets farthest from the sun obviously have long years or revolutions around the sun so they logically have much more days. The planets closet to the sun have smaller years or less time to orbit the sun and so have proportionally fewer days per year. The relationship is rather obvious really, but please note the number of rotations or days specified here are what each planet would have if you lived on each planet, not increments of 24 hrs from earths perspective. If you were to sit on Mars and revolve one full revolution around the sun, you would experience 670 days, or rotations. So for Venus a year is 224 Earth days and it rotates 243 days so in a year Venus basically has one day if you sat on it.

It is therefore logical to conclude that if the Earth had 420 days then yes as you say the rotations would be faster, but this is not the only answer. When considering the evolutionary changes that have occurred on Earth with regards to species size and adaptive changes, then your planetary movement suggestion could be reconsidered. It is perhaps far more logical to consider the possibility that 420 days in a year could be recorded if the distance of the Earth was further from the sun and this also explains the evolutionary changes.

Usermaatre Setepenre Ramesses II, the third pharaoh of the Nineteenth Dynasty, was one of ancient Egypt’s longest-reigning monarchs. In an astonishing sixty-seven regnal years – the glory days of empire that witnessed unprecedented peace and prosperity – the monarch built grand edifices and etched his name on innumerable monuments of his forbears.

Human Origins

In a previous 2-part article (1), the authors wrote about the faulty associations of the Sumerian deities known as the Anunnaki as they are portrayed in the books, television series, and other media, which promotes Ancient Astronaut Theory (hereafter “A.A.T.”).

Ancient Technology

Imagine a glass you can bend and then watch it return to its original form. A glass that you drop but it doesn’t break. Stories say that an ancient Roman glassmaker had the technology to create a flexible glass, ‘vitrium flexile’, but a certain emperor decided the invention should not be.

Ancient Places

2,000-Year-Old Carving and 16th Century Manuscript Reveal Some Maya Came from Across the Sea
The Popol Vuh, a corpus of mythological and historical narratives according to the Quiché-Maya people, and Izapa Stela 5, a carved stela found at the ancient Mesoamerican site of Izapa in Mexico, provide a fascinating insight into Mexican history. In fact, together, they may reveal that some of the ancestors of the Quiché-Maya came from across the sea.


Hopewell mounds from the Mound City Group in Ohio. Representative image
During the Early Woodland Period (1000—200 BC), the Adena people constructed extensive burial mounds and earthworks throughout the Ohio Valley in Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and West Virginia. Many of the skeletal remains found in these mounds by early antiquarians and 20th-Century archaeologists were of powerfully-built individuals reaching between 6.5 and eight feet in height (198 cm – 244 cm).

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
