The Giants of Stonehenge and Ancient Britain (Paperback)
Did giants really exist in the British Isles? Do the legends of them building Stonehenge hold any reality? Why does the establishment deny they ever existed? Hugh Newman and Jim Vieira, best selling authors of Giants On Record: America's Hidden History, Secrets in the Mounds and the Smithsonian Files (2015), 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 4,000-year period to uncover the truth. Over 250 accounts of the remains of giant human skeletons ranging from 7 feet to 21 feet 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 talks 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 mountaintop 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. Includes an 8-page color section.
