Discovered in Ecuador, the 7 to 8-foot-long skeletons were sent for scientific testing.


Discovered in Ecuador are 7–8 Foot Tall Giant Skeletons. To be analyzed in the lab British archaeologist Russell Dement’s bones unearthed in Ecuador and Peru are being analyzed in Germany, according to a study team led by him. Will these artifacts reveal the existence of a tall race of people who lived in the Amazonian rainforest hundreds of years ago? 

Bones dating from the early 1400s to the mid-1500s have been found by a Cuenca news site, and they stand between seven and eight feet (213 to 243 cm) tall.

“We are still in the early stages of our inquiry, and I can only give a general summary of what we have discovered,” Dement said. Our research is continuing, and thus I don’t want to make conclusions based on assumptions. Anthropological and medical implications are cited by Cuenca Highlife for the size of the remains.

It is possible to find human remains in Ecuador and Peru.

Late last year, Dement was informed that an Ecuadorian Shuar native had unearthed a skeleton some 70 miles from Cuenca. There was a woman’s rib cage and skull exposed by the water at the area, so Dement went there to collect them. According to the legend, the skeletal remains were unearthed 600 years ago. Found and rebuilt to seven feet four inches, the rest of the body’s bones were uncovered by archaeologists (223.5 cm).

Four academics from Germany’s Freie Universität with the cooperation of Shuar inhabitants formed a study team. The university provided funding for the excavation and research.

Dement said, “Even though I had been working with Freie for many years, I was afraid that they may not provide a money for someone hunting for giants,” citing the controversial nature of this field of inquiry. Even scientists may find this a little far-fetched, especially outsiders.

In light of the sensational nature of this, we must be extremely careful in our investigation because it will be met with a lot of mistrust,” he said.

Digging and mapping at two sites, one west of Cuenca and another on the Ecuadorian-Peruvian border, yielded five more tall bones, as well as artifacts, in six months. In the second site, Dement and his colleagues believe that the group has been in existence for at least a century and a half.

This indicates that the three whole skeletons, as well as the two half skeletons, were in high health.

Bone abnormalities are not evident in this patient, unlike in most cases of gigantism, according to the study’s lead author, Dement. All of the skeletons appeared to have healthy joints and a large lung chamber. According to Cuenca Highlife, “one of the bones that we have dated was of a girl who was about 60 years old when she died.”

Ornate funeral rites were commonplace. They were buried under a thick layer of dirt and covered with leaves. As a result, the bones were sealed and kept dry, preserving the skeletal remains.

Legends are resurrected in the modern world.

It was said that Dement had previously studied Amazonian indigenous communities for almost two decades and was aware of traditions referring to “very tall, pale-skinned individuals” that lived in the region at one time. Dement was depicted by the community’s elders as a benevolent Amazonian race that was welcomed by the Shuar and Achuar. According to the indigenous peoples, these people were just mythical figures from the domain of the spirits.

Real-life Giants

Since the revelation of the data, some stories have greatly exaggerated the significance of the findings, reporting seven feet as seven meters (making them 23 feet tall). A spurious skeleton of a “Ecuador giant” has also been falsely attributed to the bones, which were found in a now-defunct Swiss amusement park.

The scientific investigation of seven- to eight-foot skeletal remains unearthed in the Ecuadorian and Peruvian rainforests should not be deterred by these false accusations. According to legends of a fabled race, such bones exist, although they are not unheard of in scientific literature.

Other “giants,” such as Robert Wadlow, the “Alton Giant,” who is attributed with being the tallest person in recorded history, may easily be found. At the time of his death, Wadlow was 8’11” (2.72 meters) tall and was born in Alton, Illinois, in 1918.

The skeleton of Charles Byrne, known as “The Irish Giant,” is presently on display at the Royal College of Surgeons of England in London as an example of modern gigantism. His skeleton measurements place him at a height of roughly 2 meters and seven inches.

Ancient skeletons were unearthed earlier this year in Varna, Bulgaria’s Black Sea coast city with an ancient culture and civilisation that dates back more than seven thousand years. In describing the bones, the narrator said that they belonged to “a tall person.”

We may assume that the ancients had a concept of “giants” because of several instances where persons or organizations were considered “giants” throughout history.

A year later, according to Dement, the results of the claimed Freie University research will be made public. Dement is said to be analyzing DNA samples from Shuar communities in the vicinity of the dig site to see if they match the skeletal remains found there.

There are many tales and beliefs about Ecuadorian giants that have been passed down through the centuries because of the people who lived there hundreds of years ago and how they interacted with the Shuar and Achuar people.
