7 1/2 Foot Ancient Giant Discovered and then 

Hidden by the Smithsonian

Twelfth Annual Report of the Bureau of American Ethnology of the Smithsonian Institution, 1894 
Kanawha County, West Virginia
      At the depth of 14 feet, a rather large human skeleton was found, which was in a partially upright position with the back against a hard clay wall. All the bones were badly decayed, except those of the left wrist, which had been preserved by two heavy copper bracelets.  Nineteen feet from the top the bottom of this debris was reached, where, in the remains of a bark coffin, a skeleton, measuring 7 1/2 feet in length and 19 inches across the shoulders was discovered. Each wrist was encircled by six heavy copper bracelets. The largest skeletons (giants) were found at Moundsville, West Virginia : The Giant Adena Queen's Burial Mounds at Moundsville, West Virginia
