the Denisovans the giants of the
in resent years has showed that we once have had several
species of humans. One of them was the Denisova hominins.
Even if we not know for sure how tall they were they seem
to have been taller than us Homo sapiens. Might be the Denisovans
were the giants of ancient times?
started my webpages about giants in 2006.
and pictures for info
The reason was that I during my research for my Norwegian
("South Seas") came across so many legends about
had many years earlier sailed to the Pacific singlehanded
in my yacht Coco
Loco, and for almost four years I visited islands
where they hardly had seen a white man. I later lived some
years in Tuvalu, Kiribati and Fiji, but then I returned to
Norway where I was born. And back in the cold country wanted
to inform the Norwegian people about the islands and the fascinating
My countryman Thor
sailed his balsa raft Kon-Tiki 6.900 km (4.300 miles) from
Peru to Raroia, an island in the Tuamotu group in Polynesia,
in 1947. He wanted to prove that people from South America
had visited the Pacific islands before the European explorers.
Heyerdahl had on earlier visits seen ancient stone statues
on so many islands, and everywhere he was told that they depicted
tall gods that had visited them.
I had also seen stone statues on
many islands and was everywhere I was as him told that they
depicted visiting gods - giants. So I got interested in this
phenomenon and back in Norway tried to follow up Heyerdahl's
research as good as I could. And with so much information
on the internet I did not have to travel.
Newspaper about giant
There were heaps of old newspaper
articles about giants, plus magazines that
write about ancient history and mysteries. I contacted museums
and archeologists on the internet to learn even more about
the ancient human giants that seemed to have lived. It was
difficult to get answers, and I was also surprised when a
well-respected Norwegian archaeologist told me that my research
could be dangerous - without wanting to say why. It seems
like it should kept
a secret that human giants have existed.
I kept on doing my research, and I learned that the very tall
royal family of Tonga believed that they descended
the gods that had visited their country. They married within
the family to keep the blood after them. And I also discovered
that the tall people of Bau in Fiji used to be the kings of
the country before it became a republic. Also they clamed
that they had blood from the visiting gods.
Royal of Fiji
Yes, I discovered that this phenomena
can be found almost all over the world: About everywhere you
can find legends about tall, light skinned and often blond
haired male gods that came from across the sea. They started
the development of what we call civilization. Built megalithic
and walls, - and then disappeared. Their
children with local women often became the rulers/kings.
Yes, even in the Christian
Bible you can read the following: "There
were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that,
when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and
they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which
were of old, men of renown". In the original scriptures
it was written in plural: "Sons of the Gods." Yes,
there were more than 30 gods in the Hebrew bible! And it seems
that these gods did not live in a theological heaven but up
on a mountain!
Jim Vieira - Giant Curse
Terje in hospital
During my research I got in contact with Jim
Vieira in USA who had collected hundreds of
old newspaper articles about human giants. He was a stonemason
and wondered how somebody could manage to make all the megaliths
in ancient times.
In 2014 the TV-channel History Channel
started to make a series called "Search for the lost
giants" and I was invited to come with Jim and his brother
Bill to the Catalina Islands outside the coast of California
to look at some giant bones supposedly found there.
When I disembarked the plane in Los
Angeles I collapsed but was lucky that the crew saw me falling
and came running with oxygen. Four days in hospital. So
no Catalina Island for me: They filmed me in a hospital bed
and called the episode: "The
Giant Curse". Well, I do not believe in
curses. The fact is that somebody had tipped a table tennis
table on my legs just before I left Australia, and that blood-clots
had moved from my legs to my lungs when the plane descended
for landing. Tennis star Serena Williams had experienced the
cave in Siberia
Human family tree
Even if I did not manage to look for giant bones in the USA
I kept on doing my research and write articles about giants
and ancient history.
In 2010 I came across an article
about the Swedish geneticist Svante Pääbo who had
managed to sequence DNA from piece of a finger bone found
in a cave in Siberia two years earlier. He was surprised that
they belonged to an unknown human species.
The species was named Denisova
hominins after the cave, or just Denisovans.
They archeologists also had found three Denisovan teeth: Molars
so large that they at first thought they had belonged to cave
beer. Later also a part of a Denisova skull has been found
at another place and also a jawbone. All so large that it
seems that the Denisovans must have been very tall - taller
than the first Homo sapiens, us humans. And with a much larger
brain might be their intelligent capacity was way ahead of
"Denny" - mixed heritage
Other findings in the Denisova cave were also very surprising:
A polished bracelet of chloritolite stone, with a hole made
with a spinning drill, And also a tiara and a ring made of
ivory. Plus heaps of tiny beads made of ostrich eggshells
- at a time where the ostriches lived more than thousand kilometers
Traces of DNA of a horse was also
found. Plus a seven centimeter polished needle with eyehole
for a tread at one end. Even a stone that seems to have been
used as a pencil was found, plus a bone whistle that might
have been part of a flute! The Denisovans must have had a
much more advanced technology than us humans at that time.
It was earlier believed that the Denisovans went extinct about
50.000 years ago. Radiocarbon dating in 2019 of sediments
found in the cave dates up to more than 200.000 years ago.
When it comes to the first modern humans - the mainstream
theory is that we started moving out
from Africa 70.000-100.000 years ago, and that
we developed the capacity for language about 50.000 years
We did not play flutes or ride horses,
so what has happened? Well, resent research points to that
not only the Denisovans had visited the cave in Siberia but
also Neanderthals and early Homo sapiens - and that all three
The Denisovans shall, as mentioned, have gone extinct about
50.000 years ago and the Neanderthals about 40.000 years ago.
But you can still find Denisova DNA in people living today.
Not in Siberia, Asia or Europe, but scientists have found
that Melanesian people of Papua New Guinea has up to 6 percent
of their genes from Denisovans and Australian aboriginal people
has 3-5 percent Denisova DNA!
Stone in wall, Cusco, Peru
All over the world you can find ancient megaliths: Buildings
and walls that we hardly will be able to copy today with our
modern tools. The ancients were supposed to have tools able
to cut, form move and place blocks of basalt or granite. But
without tools able to do it, they are said to only have hammer
stones and chisels of soft copper!!
The most visible ancient buildings
are of course the pyramids, and the most famous are the pyramids
of Egypt. But we find also huge pyramids in Mexico and Peru
on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. Thor Heyerdahl rebuilt
ancient pyramids on the Canary Island off the coast of northwestern
Africa and also traveled to see a pyramid in Samoa in the
South Pacific. We have recently discovered what seem to be
pyramids in Bosnia in Europe and also in Indonesia.
Let us take a look at the Sacsayhuamán
walls outside the city of Cusco in Peru. These
impressive walls are said to have been made by the Inca-Indians
in the 15th century AD but the Inca themselves refutes this.
They say that the walls and many of the other ancient megaliths
of Peru were made by a race of giant humans/gods that lived
long, long before them.
The current theory is that the
walls were forts, but who would make a fort almost 4000 meters
(12.000 feet) up in the mountains, with walls that could easy
be captured by enemies coming from the backside?
The most famous and tallest pyramid in Egypt is the Great
Pyramid of Giza. It is said to have been built
as a tomb for pharaoh Khufu (Cheops), who shall have reigned
from 2589 to 2566 BC. Well, there is a granite coffer inside
the so-called King's chamber but no mummy or bones. The passages
inside the pyramid are too narrow to transport a sarcophagus
to the chamber, and salt found inside and outside the pyramid,
halfway to the top points to that it might be much, much older.
Might be it was the legendary "benben"
- a mound that should have arisen from the primordial water?
820 AD the sultan El-Rashid
Al Ma'mum wanted to open the Great Pyramid.
He had heard that it was made by superhuman beings called
Sheddai, giants that had stored a great treasure inside the
pyramid. He shall have managed to make a tunnel where the
opening to the pyramid is today but it is not known if he
found a treasure. Might be his diggers got too scared and
left when a rock reportedly fell down besides them?
Gods and pharaohs, Egypt
Everywhere in the world you can find stories of human giants
that shall have lived in ancient times. Some are modern fairytales
like Jack and the Beanstalk but the question is if many of
the legends might have basis in true events. Like the
between the gods and the titans
in Greece and the battle
between the gods and the fire giants in Norse
mythology. With no written language the important events were
told from father to son: The legends were their history books!
Everywhere you will find legends of gods that turned up and
helped the local people to develop their civilization. They
were human looking, very tall and with white skin and most
often blond or reddish hair. They were the ones behind so
many of the megalithic structures - like pyramids in Egypt
and Mexico. They had children with the local women, and their
descendants most often became the kings. And then they disappeared.
Some say they were aliens from outer space - but what if they
giants from Siberia?
Might be human ancient history is wrong? Could these tall
gods that became kings have been Denisovans? Well, since we
find Denisova DNA all the way to Australia then they or their
hybrid descendants must have left the Altai Mountains of Siberia.
Might be some of them traveled eastwards, sailed over the
Pacific Ocean and ended up as giant kings in the mounds
of USA? Might be others traveled westwards - and became
the first pharaohs
of Egypt? Might be they already before they left had
developed an advanced technology - might be even more advanced
than we have today, even if different? Might be they had the
"magical" tool Shamir
that could cut,
form and lift large blocks of hard stone?
Schytian rider, gold
mound of Odin
Lee Berger and giant bone
of Borjomi (normal bone in the middle)
There were people with advanced technology close to Siberia
thousands of years ago. Like the Kurgans
who conquered much of South Asian and Europe between 35.00
and 2500 BC, and made large burial mounds. And the Scythians
who dominated the northern area from the Black Sea and far
eastwards between 7th to the 3rd century BC. The Scythians
rode horses, made delicate jewelry of gold and their clothing
was elaborate. The ancient
Greek historians believed that the Scythians were
the oldest people on Earth.
Very interesting are the Tarim
mummies that were found on the Xinjian-steppe in the
very northeastern part of China. The "mummies" are
extremely well preserved frozen bodies. The earliest bodies
are dated to 1800 BC.
An old Chinese book describes people
of great height, long noses, red or blond hair and blue eyes
living in the area. And the mummies show exactly that: They
look like the people of Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden, Denmark)!
But still many traditional scholars do not want to hear about
it: The Xinjian-steppe is too far away from Europe, they claim.
But what about the Denisovans or their hybrid descendants?
The Denisova cave is not that far away!
Cro-Magnons were much taller and had brains that were far
larger than modern humans. They were earlier believe to have
been a seperat species of Homo sapiens, but the scholars have
changed their minds. They are now believed to have been just
tall modern humans. Descendants of Denisova hybrids?
Heyerdahl wrote the following in his Norwegian book
Grenser": "It never occurred to Nansen that
Caucasus could have been our ancestors' original homeland."
The Norwegian Peace Prize winner,
explorer, scientist and diplomat Fridtjof
Nansen (the first person to cross Greenland by skies,
in 1888) had visited the Caucasus Mountains and was
to find tall, white-skinned and European looking people there.
Odin and Heyerdahl
himself did a series of archaeological
excavations in Azov in Ukraine, at the northeastern
tip of the Black Sea. He wanted to prove that what the Icelandic
historian Snorre Stulason (1179-1241) had written about the
royal dynasties of the 13th century was based on historical
facts and not myths: That a person driven from the Azov-area
by the expanding Romans had taken the name of the Norse god
Odin to get the goodwill of the Norwegian people, might be
even get treated like a god. That the tall and white skinned
royal families of Norway could be descended from him.
Thor Heyerdahl's team dug up thousands
of artifacts, but Heyerdahl passed away (in 2002) - and with
him also the archaeological project.
kings of Mesopotamia
There are so many legends, depictions and historical descriptions
of tall kings in ancient time. Like Xerxes
the Great, who ruled the first Persian Empire from
486 to 465 BC. His kingdom stretched from the Balkans in Europe
to the Indus Valley of northern India. Xerxes was described
to be almost 2.50 meter (8 feet) tall! Like Khasekhemui,
the pharaoh who ruled Egypt about 2690 BC. - he was also almost
2.50 meter tall! Or king Gilgamesh, who ruled Uruk in Mesopotamia
sometimes between 2700 and 2500 BC. He was said to be two-thirds
god and one-third human. Some legends say he was about 5 meter
(18 feet) tall but depictions often shows him a bit shorter!
Almost three meters
the kings on the other side of the world were very tall an
ancient days. In a now closed private gold museum in Peru
you could see the mummified head of a local king. The head
is almost twice as big as normal and a golden tunic not supposed
to touch the floor is more than 2.5 meter (8 feet) tall. The
king must have been almost three meters (nine and a half feet)
bones South Africa
I learned that the paleoanthropologist Lee Berger living in
in South America had found fossilized
bones that had belong to a human species routinely
taller than two meters (more than 7 feet): - These individuals
are extraordinary, they are giants, is what he said. Well,
his discovery of the tiny human species Australopithecus sediba
made him a professor, but his descriptions in 2007 of giants
seem to be kept out of his résumé and research
Giant bones Caucasus
I also learned that giant bones had been found in Borjomi,
in the Caucasus Mountains of Georgia, just east of the Black
Sea. This giant seemed to have been 2,50 to 3 meters tall
(9-10 feet). The editor of the World Geographic Internet magazine
confirmed the finding when I asked by email.
Denisovans or not - do you have information?
As you might have noticed: The giants I am talking about are
not the giants from the fairy tales. Not the enormous giant
from "Jack and the Beanstalk" or the mountain trolls
of Norway. They were more like the ancient heroes of Greece,
the Sumerian living gods/kings and the first pharaohs of Egypt.
Human looking, but about half a meter (a bit more than one
and a half feet) taller than the ordinary people. They seems
to have had a knowledge that the societies of the time did
not have. And might be tools like the magic Shamir
that could cut, shape the hardest rock, even diamonds! And
also move large rocks with ease!
I mentioned earlier that I have tried to get information archaeologists
at the museums without much luck. Are they afraid of loosing
Might be it is some truth to the persisting story that the
Smithsonian in the USA have destroyed a large number of giants
Are we not supposed to know about
the Denisovans and their possible influence on our history
and development - might be because they were not humans like
