Skeletons of 8 Foot Women and 9 Foot Men at Ohio's Serpent Mound

Skeletons of 8 Foot Women and 9 Foot Men at Ohio's Serpent Mound

 Several burial mounds are excavated near Ohio' s famous Serpent Mound revealing women who were over 8 feet in height when alive and men that exceeded 9 feet.

The find of the giant skeletons is close to the famous Serpent Mound. Despite their historical records the Serpent Mound is now being appropriated by the Shawnee Indians who have no history of being mound builders : Shawnee Indians Claim the Serpent Mound as Their Own, Despite Their Ancient Chiefs Saying the Mounds Were There When They Arrived

         The Rev. Stephen Bowers notes, in the Kansas City “Review of Science,” the opening of an interesting mound in Brush Creek Township, Ohio. The mound was opened by the Historical Society of the township, under the immediate supervision of Dr. J. F. Everhart, of Zanesville. It measured sixty-four by thirty-five feet at the summit, gradually sloping in every direction, and was eight feet in height. There was found in it a sort of clay coffin including the skeleton of a woman measuring eight feet in length. Within this coffin was found also the skeleton of a child about three and a half feet in length, and an image that crumbled when exposed to the atmosphere. In another grave was found the skeleton of a man and woman, the former measuring nine and the latter eight feet in length. In a third grave occurred two skeletons, male and female, measuring respectively nine feet four inches and eight feet. Seven other skeletons were found in the mound, the smallest of which measured eight feet, while others reached the enormous length of ten feet. They were buried singly or each in separate graves. Resting against one of the coffins was an engraved stone tablet (now in Cincinnati), from the characters on which Dr. Everhart and Mr. Bowers are led to conclude that this giant race were sun-worshipers.
