900 Pound, 10 Foot Giant Neanderthal Once Roamed Minnesota




The McIvor Times, September 5, 1884
Gigantic Skeletons
   A Michigan paper reports the discovery of a gigantic human in a rock near the Sauk Rapids.  It says: - "The head is massive 31 1/2 in. in circumference, is low in the front and very flat on the top.  The femur measures 26 1/4 in., and the fibula 26 1/2 in., while the body is equally long in proportion.  From the crown of the head to the sole of the foot, the length is 10 feet 9 1/2 inches.  The measure around the chest is 59 1/2 In.,  This giant must have weighed at least 900 lbs, when covered with a reasonable amount of flesh.  The petrified remains, and there is nothing left but the naked bones, now weigh 304 lbs.  The thumb and fingers of the left hand and the left foot from the ankle to the toes are gone, but all of the other parts are perfect.  Verily, there were giants in those days!
