Sinopsis:

Over a 200-year period thousands of newspaper reports, town and county histories, letters, photos, diaries, and scientific journals have documented the existence of an ancient race of giants in North America. Extremely tall skeletons ranging from 7 feet up to a staggering 18 feet tall have been reportedly uncovered in prehistoric mounds, burial chambers, caves, geometric earthworks, and ancient battlefields. Strange anatomic anomalies such as double rows of teeth, horned skulls, massive jaws that fit over a modern face, and elongated skulls have also been reported. Many of these discoveries were sent to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C., seemingly never to be heard about again. The Smithsonian's own records describe at least 17 giant skeletons in annual reports. This book examines a possible cover-up initiated by Smithsonian scientists starting in the late 1800s. The origins of “the tall ones” has been shrouded in mystery for centuries, but this book reveals where they came from, why they got so large, and the reason for their downfall, using the latest scientific research, genetic data, native myths, news reports, and ethnological research. This has become one of the most gripping stories of the last few centuries and for the first time the truth of the giants of North America has been revealed. This book also reveals: - How early explorers to America witnessed these giants first-hand, including Sir Francis Drake, John Smith and even some of the early presidents. - Legends and myths that talk of cannibalistic, red-haired giants. - Strange inscriptions, metal armor, mummified remains, and sophisticated technologies buried with the skeletons. - How secret societies such as the Rosicrucians, Freemasons and Theosophists all claim the existence of giant humans in the past as historical fact in their literature. - How the giants may be connected to the Denisovans from Siberia, the Nephilim of Bible tradition, and other ancient cultures.

About the Author:

JIM VIEIRA is a stonemason, researcher and writer. As well as exploring and writing about the stone sites of New England, he has written for Ancient American magazine, The Heretic (UK) and local newspapers. In 2012 he created the online blog The Daily Giant that showcased a giant report every day for nearly two years. He controversially had his TEDx talk removed from the internet (much like Graham Hancock and Rupert Sheldrake). He is star of the History Channel TV shows Search for the Lost Giants (2014) and Roanoke: Search for the Lost Colony (2015) with his brother Bill. He lives in Ashfield, Massachusetts.

He has been a regular guest on History Channel's Ancient Aliens and featured in Search for the Lost Giants with Jim and Bill Vieira. Since 2006 he has been organising the Megalithomania Conference and since 2013 the Origins Conference in London with Andrew Collins. He runs regular tours and expeditions to Peru, Egypt, Turkey, Britain, Mexico, Cambodia, Java, India and other locations. He also writes for numerous magazines and has a BA (Hons) in Film and Journalism from London Guildhall University. His worldwide adventures and lectures can be seen at youtube.com/megalithomaniaUK.
