Mass Grave of 3,000 Human Giants Discovered in Ashtabula County, Ohio


 This is another conforming Indian town site conforming to the Bronze Age culture influenced by the Atlantean copper trade from 2500 BC through 1159 BC.  We have both locals and giants although again in a minority.  Add in earlier reports in Ohio and at Aztlan in Illinois and elsewhere around the Great Lakes, it appears that significant. town development took place throughout the Great Lakes Basin.

Presume these cultures lingered long after 1159 BC. 

We have this comment regarding the Algonquin culture which i want to question.  It is an easy end to the story except it makes no sense.  As well just where were these Algonquins coming from?  There is scant evidence of agriculture and we are dealing with a widely distributed hunter gather society.  There needs to be a better appreciation of a putative culture able to knock down towns here.

A great dying took place throughout the Americas after contact.  This period ran from 1492 through 1600 and came in waves.  Towns were lost.  As well we now also know that the Norse presence in New England and James Bay was significant well before 1492 AD.  All this represents first contact for diseases over a thousand years since the Bronze Age.  Thus an earlier great dying plausibly took place at least 400 years earlier and plausibly contemporaneous with the archaeological record  to 700 AD.

I do not think that disease can be discounted through 700 AD.  Recall now easily sailors arriving at an island knocked over whole populations.  Isolated towns cut of for centuries would be just as vulnerable.

Mass Grave of 3,000 Human Giants Discovered in Ashtabula County, Ohio

Near the site of this Giant’s Fort was the mass grave yard. These people were slaughtered when the Algonquin Indians invaded from Canada.

Ashtabula County Ohio

There were mounds situated in the eastern part of the village of Conneaut and an extensive burying ground near the Presbyterian Church, which appear to have had no connection with the burying places of the Indians. Among the human bones found in the mounds were some belonging to men of gigantic structure. Some of the skulls were of sufficient capacity to admit the head of an ordinary man, and jaw bones that might have been fitted over the face with equal facility; the other bones were proportionately large. The burying ground referred to contained about four acres, and with the exception of a slight angle in conformity with the natural contour of the ground was in the form of an oblong square.

It appeared to have been accurately surveyed into lots running from north to south, and exhibited all the order and propriety of arrangement deemed necessary to constitute Christian burial. On the first examination of the ground by the settlers they found it covered with the ordinary forest trees, with an opening near the center containing a single butternut. The graves were distinguished by slight depressions disposed in straight rows and were estimated to number from two to three thousand. On examination in 1800, they were found to contain human bones, invariably blackened by time, which on exposure to the air soon crumbled to dust. Traces of ancient cultivation observed by the first settlers on the lands of the vicinity, although covered with forest, exhibited signs of having once been thrown up into squares and terraces, and laid out into gardens.
