Do colossal footprints in history prove the Giant's existence?
Is it possible that our planet was inhabited in the past by humanoid creatures of exceptional size? Certainly myths, stories and legends concerning the Giants are common to the folklore of almost all cultures, in every corner of the planet: they inhabited the Earth before the human race, lived in the mountains and subsequently were constantly at war with gods and men. In many cases there is talk of giants builders of walls and other megalithic structures, whose historical origins are still unclear and shrouded in mystery.
Paleoanthropology has never been particularly open to the idea of an extinct race of giants. The search is difficult due to the enormous amount of incomplete and not very verifiable information, often mixed with real hoaxes.
Main cases documented
According to believers, the evidence of the existence of giants would be tangible and documented all over the world:
The Lucerne Giant
In 1577 in Willisau, in the canton of Lucerne, a skeleton with enormous bones was discovered. The authorities of the area hastened to convene a commission of experts headed by the Swiss anatomist Felix Plater, who declared that, despite the unusual size, they were undoubtedly human remains. From the clay reconstruction of the skeleton, which was in fact incomplete, the drawing of a 5,80 titan meters high emerged.
The Castelnau-le-Lez Giant
Three fossil bone fragments (presumably of humerus, tibia and femur) discovered by Georges Vacher de Lapouge in 1890 in the sediment used to cover a tumulus related to a Bronze Age burial and therefore probably datable to the Neolithic and attributable to a skeleton of 3.50 meters.
The giant bones of Montpellier
In 1894 there was a discovery of giant men's bones found during the excavation of a prehistoric cemetery area in Montpellier. Skulls were found measuring "71, 79 and 81 cm in circumference" along with other bones of gigantic proportions that indicated belonging to a human population about 3-4.5 m high.
Giant Native American Skeletons:
-In 1924, following an archaeologist in the Lovelock cave area, in Nevada some bodies are exhumed including a female mummy almost two meters high and a male mummy that exceeded two meters and forty, which are assumed to belong to the Si-te-cah, the red-haired giants of the Paiute legend.
-Between 1922 and 1929 the archaeological excavations directed by Prof. Ralph Gldiden on American soil have brought to light numerous skeletons more than 2.20 meters belonging to Native Americans, radically changing the conception of primitive Americans until then consolidated in areas academics.
-In 1870, an Indian agent Frank La Fleche, announced that the Omaha Indians had unearthed eight giants with skulls measuring 60 cm; the same Indian tribes called these giants Mu-A-Luskha, and said that they had arrived millennia first from the Pacific Ocean on the American coasts, had fought and destroyed existing Amerindian tribes, founded their cities and dug wells.
Some have speculated that they were the ancient inhabitants of Lemuria.
-In the 70s a landowner called Martinez, in Mexico, found the bones of two men of unspeakable height.
After being accused of murder by local authorities for having reported the fact but then released on bail, he decided to incinerate the bones.
The Californian giants
In California in 1810, the skeleton of a giant with six fingers was found. On the Island of Santa Rosa, a skull was found, with a double row of teeth welded to the mighty jaw. Some soldiers stationed at Lampock Ranch, found the skeleton of a giant, and a Catholic friar ordered them to bury it again as the local natives were angered by such desecration, believing such remains what remained of an ancient god.
Giant finds reported in New York Times articles:
-In 1856, in East Wheeling, Ohio, during the work in the sheriff's vineyard, a skeleton of three meters and thirty was found.

The Giants of Shemya
In 1943, some military engineers stationed in Shemya, an island of the Aleutian group, found bones of considerable proportions and enormous skulls whose dimensions ranged from 50 to 60 cm in diameter.
It seems that the military authorities immediately arrived on the spot ordered silence on this matter.
