There are numerous myths from around the world which speak about "giants", which usually refers to humans which were remarkably large in stature. In the Old Testament from the Bible there are numerous references to giants, as well as before as after the great Deluge, and they are also mentioned in the Dead Sea scrolls. It is quite possible that they were the Titans from Greek mythology.
years or more, early modern man known as "Cro-Magnon man"
did co-exist together with the the much shorter Neanderthals in Europe
which averaged from 5.3 to 5.5 feet. The
earliest Cro-Magnon men were in comparison quite large in
stature, averaging from 6.1 to 6.7 feet (male), which is somewhat
taller than the average height of
current modern man, but the giants that were mentioned in the Bible
were much taller.
There are other references to humans of gigantic height to be found in the Bible, like in the book Numbers, 13:32:
"32. And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, "The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size."
The book Deuteronomy 3:11 mentions the king Og of Basan as the last of the Rephaim and his bed, or coffin, was described as nine cubits long and four cubits wide, or thirteen and a half feet long and six feet wide.
According to numerous reports from the past past centuries, there had been found gigantic human bones at various places in the world. Although these findings are being kept in museums, they are rarely or not being put on display for certain reasons; perhaps because they simply cannot explain these remarkable artifacts.
In the year 1911 there had been found the remains of red-haired giants with heights between 6.5 and 8 feet, in the cave that is now known as Lovelock Cave, near Lovelock in Nevada. In the year 1931 there had been found two giant skeletons within the lake bed of Humbold lake, where the first one had a stature of 8 feet tall and the second one had a stature of below 10 feet.
