18 Giant Skeletons And Pyramids Found In Wisconsin

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Here’s one for your “Forbidden Archaeology” file.Scientists are remaining stubbornly silent about a lost race of giants found in burial mounds near Lake Delavan, Wisconsin, in May 1912. The dig site at Lake Delavan was overseen by Beloit Collegeand it included more than 200 effigy mounds that proved to be classic examples of 8th century Woodland Culture. But the enormous size of the skeletons and elongated skulls found in May 1912 did not fit very neatly into anyone’s concept of a textbook standard. They were enormous. These were not average human beings. 

Their heights ranged between 7.6ft and 10 feet and their skulls “presumably those of men, are much larger than the heads of any race which inhabit America to-day.” They tend to have a double row of teeth, 6 fingers, 6 toes and like humans came in differant races. The teeth in the front of the jaw are regular molars. Heads usually found are elongated believed due to longer than normal life span. 
On 10 August 1891, the New York Times reported that scientists from the Smithsonian Institution had discovered several large “pyramidal monuments” on Lake Mills, near Madison, Wisconsin. “Madison was in ancient days the centre of a teeming population numbering not less than 200,000,” the Times said. The excavators found an elaborate system of defensive works which they named Fort Aztalan. 
This is a wonderful article that really sparks my imagination and the Indiana Jones inside me.  This would be one of the greatest finds, in myhumble opinion, ever!  The answers that would be answered, the questions it would raise.  I suggest you read the whole article and then comment below, let me know your opinion.  I love this stuff. -Mort

      Please show us the exact coordinate so we can get a satellite view of the area or post a link. I would like to see these pyramid mounds from the air. Thanks!

      • Confederate

        If you get that link etc let me know. But I don’t think they will post anything because this is all a load of crap!

        • watertiger

          you are a dumbed down idiot if you think just for one minute you were taught human history and pre-history in the government indoctrination centers called public school!! You are stuck on stupid!!~

          The Smithsonian Institution was started in 1829 when an eccentric British millionaire, by the name of James Smithson, died and left $515,169 to create an institution “for the increase and diffusion of knowledge among men.” Unfortunately, there is evidence the Smithsonian has been more active in the suppression of knowledge… than the diffusion of it for the last hundred years.

          The cover-up and alleged suppression of archaeological evidence began in late 1881 when John Wesley Powell, the geologist famous for exploring the Grand Canyon, appointed Cyrus Thomas as the director of the Eastern Mound Division of the Smithsonian Institution’s Bureau of Ethnology.Ivan T. Sanderson, a well-known zoologist and frequent guest on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show in the 1960s once related a curious story about a letter he received regarding an engineer who was stationed on the Aleutian island of Shemya during World War II. While building an airstrip, his crew bulldozed a group of hills and discovered under several sedimentary layers what appeared to be human remains. The Alaskan mound was in fact a graveyard of gigantic human remains, consisting of crania and long leg bones.

          The crania measured from 22 to 24 inches from base to crown. Since an adult skull normally measures about eight inches from back to front such a large crania would imply an immense size for a normally proportioned human.

          Hence…Smithsonian Institution is in the business of “hiding our true history” more than preserving it!

          We the people have been lied to and been spoon feed disinformation / propaganda for over a 100 plus years. NASA is totally unbelievable, it’s actually part of the defense departments disinformation operation. It’s a damn shame when you have no one to believe, including your government.

        Love him or hate him, Steve Quayle has a great deal of information on giants throughout the world in ancient times, including north America.

    • MG

      These guys were at least 7 foot and had horns and red skeletons. This is the only piece that wasn’t stolen.

      Proof these doods existed.

    • Hawbs

      i read your whole article and then went on to google in hope of finding proof of giant human skeletons. i found nothing. if someone took them and hid them, i don’t know. there are newspaper stories, that is not tangible proof we can see today. i do believe in the bible, but like aliens and giants, people hide things for who knows what reason. and it ain’t right!

      • Fake-it

        The size of the scull is not right. Should be much bigger.

        • Doug

          Skull…. a scull is a boat.

    • Isis

      Taking in account that 3 ancient records of scripture “there were giants in those days” … and “there is nothing new under the sun” … and “all things are possible” …. This story has a good chance of being true …

    • PinkUnicorn

      Good story. I enjoy stories about ancient giants. So fascinating!

      • SunnyOne

        Not that this is related… but Oprah is reported to have a summer home on Lake Geneva, which is about 10 miles from Delavan… :lol:

    • truther357

      We pay NASA, Smithsonian and the Federal Justice Dept. to hide things (the truth) from us!

    • old viking

      if you really want to know who these giants were in America, then get a copy of The Book Of Mormon. You will read of their history, religion, and advanced civilization. The book tells of two great civilizations, one preceding the other and how they were destroyed. Give the Book Of Mormon a chance. You will find it fascinating.

      • sarahmj

        I don’t think the Nephites and Lamanites were giants (or the Jaredites for that matter), if there were giants in America it was probably pre-flood peoples.

    • whitebear

      I don’t know why some people have trouble with this concept.


    • Mellissa

      For a long time, eons I would guess many people found massive bones, pieces of skeletons and thought they were giant bones but were ‘sometimes’ just bones from dinosaurs.

      I can not say 100% that is earths history there were not a larger hominid then sapiens. We even have had the odd really really tall person as well. They are rare and have health problems but we have had tall people. Look at this list of humans that were 7-8’11 feet tall measured ( for the most part ) by Guinness.

      So we have had people that tall before, it is not impossible. It does not mean they are devils or aliens or anything. Just lucky to be over my own 5 foot self :D

      • jackd

        Mellissa. Your confused and have been deceived by mans lies… Yes giants existed read your bible “and there were giants in those days
        And as for your dinosaur theory evolution is just a theory like the Big Bang theory.
        Why do you think the flood happened. Don’t let the corporate educational lies teach you poison.
        At one time we were taught right science replaced scripture in schools and has corrupted youthful minds

      • Justsomeguy151

        If people found one single bone, then maybe you could see how someone could be confused between dino bones and giants bt you are denying the existence of giants ….all while ignoring the pic of the 8 footer! Also people have found THOUSANDS of full skeletons of giant humanoids. There’s no mistaking that. You are referencing people w/ acromegaly which is a defective pituitary gland that keeps the body growing until death. But ancient giants weren’t feeble, they were powerful. They didn’t have acromegaly, they were just different.

      To find this place and others, follow interstate 94 east from madison. Right off and just south of 94 you will find aztalan park and west of there just about a mile is rock lake where they found a rock pyramid under water at rock lake.

      Delavan is further south of 94 and that area from delavan to burlington down to beloit has some ancient history fo dog man, dinosaur bone pits where they were carved up to food and other historical facts.

      • SunnyOne

        It’s not “94 East”… it’s “94 West”. Otherwise, you could end up in the big drink (i.e., Lake Michigan).

        Lake Delavan is kind of near Lake Geneva – it is right off of Hwy 43. However, if you take 94 West, you can get off at Hwy 67 and head south to the lake.

        Also of interest, there are elephant bones in Lake Delavan… because in the mid 1800s, an elephant, wintering with a circus at what is now Lake Lawn Lodge, died. Since it was winter and the ground was frozen, they pushed the elephant out into the lake. Did not know about the giant bones in Lake Delavan and near the area – that is very interesting. I have family there.

          I didn’t know that. I go fishing there all the time

    • slew59

      when i saw the pic w/the two men standing next to the skeleton i was reminded of when i worked at the dome and came face to butt w/a professional basketball player. my face was as high as their butt was off the ground!!! and i was an adult human being.

      • Eggzactly

        I know the feeling, My son used to play AAU basketball and in 07 we went to Indiana and Kentucky and I had never seen so many 7′+ tall 17 year olds in my life! I’m 6′ and I was looking up to them, way up!

      RetiredRogue,,,,,,,They are Nephilim from Genesis 6:4-9, it all started when God had to destroyed all the people by the “”FLOOD”", because the blood was tainted from “”fallen “” angels have relations with the daughters of men. Versus 9 talks about Noah being perfect in his generations “”"his blood line”". Remember it was Noah’s two son’s who also were saved from the flood and there wives. The blood line to Jesus Christ could not be corrupted. Joseph was Christ’s dad, God was Christs ( and blood line ) father, Mary was the vessel to bring him into this world. NOTHING MORE..

      • screen name

        The flood came because God found the people on it to be very bad & violent Genesis 6:5, 11. Your “blood line” theory is not biblical. Christ is Gods son so could not be “corrupted” John 1:18, 34, John 3:16. Please read the entire context of your bible not just what someone tells you.

        • notatheory

          Go read the book of Enoch , he was seventh from Adam and Noahs grandfather, it tells of the sons of god and the daughters of men, the sons of god being the fallen angels that knocked up the daughters of men, WHO BORE GIANTS, the book was left out of the bible in the 4th century ad, as were multiple books, LIKE NORMAL WE NEVER GET THE WHOLE STORY

    • Estrella

      1912? That was…. 100 years ago, right?

    • KingOfTheCamp

      Giants make perfect sence only if humans in 1 way shape or form were around when the planet experienced the explosion in animal size which was due to elevated levels of oxygen.


      Wow I really pulled this one out of my but. I read about it in Gary Renards book.
      feast your eyes my friends.

      This information is FOR REAL!!! This is concrete evidence not meant for those whom choose to be stuck on stupid as they choose to immerse themselves into the dreadful idiocy that has dumbed us down to the depths of dependence. As for myself, being a former resident of Southern WI and residing not more than 30 minutes from this specific location, this is the one historical find that proves to me beyond a shadows of doubt that giants indeed existed on this continent prior to the arrival of the ” white devil “( those of us of European descent ) as the natives would refer to us. Being we brought over a host of diseases which their immune systems were not accustomed to fighting off within their own bodies, they ” disappeared ” from the face of this planet. I don’t buy that disappearing theory as is what we were misinformed in those government-sponsored, inaccurate US ” history ” books ” would like for us to believe.

      In conclusion, think for yourself. Draw to your own conclusions based upon your own research on & offline. Ask questions. Most of all, as opinions may fly in the face of reality and passed off as ” fact “, take all of the information with a grain of salt through a load of prayer. NEVER, NEVER TAKE ANYTHING FOR GRANTED!!!

      May God guide you and lead your footsteps as only He can.

      Where is Karen Hudes? These skeletons could be secretly running the Vatican.

    • ghostlea

      Why have you use pictures of the giant found in ireland’s mines. Trying using a picture that relates to your story.!!!!

    • TuffENuff

      Ummmm.. an “ancient skeletal remain” with flesh attached? It even appears to be standing on its own, although this could be a photo of the remains in a box stood up for display. I’ve seen many burials mounds in my life and none of the remains has flesh unless it’s been in a bog, and they look more like raisins. I believe giants were here once, just that this photo looks like something from the Wax Museum.

    • a LIGHT in the DARKNESS.....


    • Freedom

      It’s a fact that we have had human races that only grow as tall as 3 1/2 feet. So what’s so hard to belive that there have been human races that grow 7 to 10 feet .

    • raburgeson

      Hiding human history has to have a very rewarding happy ending. It is also being used to help with the assault on Christianity. They do not want people saying the bible was right about anything. This species ate humans. There are sources for this fact all over the globe.
