Did giants really exist in the British Isles? Do the legends of them building Stonehenge hold any reality? Why do the establishment deny they ever existed? Hugh Newman and Jim Vieira, best selling authors of Giants On Record: America’s Hidden History, and stars of History Channel’s Search for the Lost Giants, investigate these claims and take a deep dive into obscure newspaper accounts, antiquarian diaries, archaeological reports, local history records, newly-translated ancient texts, academic papers, new scientific reports and written evidence from hundreds of sources going back over a 4000-year period to uncover the truth. Over 250 accounts of the remains of giant human skeletons ranging from 7ft to 21ft have been found in the archaeological and historical record, often measured and commented on by famous scientists, scholars and writers at the time.
A wealth of folklore from England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland talk about sophisticated cultures of giants with supernatural powers and advanced technology who had control over thunder and lightning, as witnessed when their tombs were disturbed by later generations. They were often high kings and queens who were master geomancers, surveyors, architects and astronomers who ruled from their mountain-top fortresses, whilst others were cannibals with violent tendencies who enjoyed throwing gigantic rocks across the landscape. The authors take a close look at these age-old stories and the remarkable skeletal discoveries to reveal for the first time an important lost chapter of British history. Related subjects discussed include the existence of Atlantis and other antediluvian civilizations, whether humans have existed for far longer than is currently accepted, global flood and catastrophe myths and legends, and whether differing atmospheric conditions in the distant past allowed life on Earth to grow to enormous sizes compared with the last few millennia.
