Jason Jarrell is a student of archaeology, philosophy and depth psychology. 

His first full book is Ages of the Giants: A Cultural History of  the Tall Ones in Prehistoric America, co-written with Sarah Farmer. The book traces the history of a unique group of Native American ancestors gifted with unusually tall stature and exceptionally powerful physicality across several thousand years of ancient history, as revealed by actual archaeological records and research of the prehistoric "mound builder" cultures known as the Adena and Hopewell.


Ages of the Giants

By Jason Jarrell and Sarah Farmer

For more than a century now across the eastern portion of North America, burials of ancient people who possessed a very tall stature have been uncovered. Ages of the Giants utilizes actual archaeological reports and the records of American Antiquarians, along with numerous historical chronicles and press accounts to document the cultures of a distinct sub-population of large, powerfully-built individuals of extraordinary height who inhabited ancient North America for thousands of years. The product of a decade of research, including fieldwork at ancient sites and the study of thousands of pages of archaeological literature, Ages of the Giants traces the history of the ancient Tall Ones across four millennia, and features in-depth descriptions of the cultures they founded, as well as their traditions, cosmology, and settlement patterns.
