Tales of mysterious 'giants' still haunt Nevada's Lovelock Cave

For years, archaeologists have remained divided over the discovery of alleged giant skeletons and artifacts.
Measuring approximately 150ft long and 35ft wide, Lovelock Cave, which is situated in Nevada's Great Basin region, has long remained a site of considerable archaeological importance.

That said, a great deal of controversy has surrounded the alleged discovery of giant skeletons inside and other evidence of a race of giant people who were once said to roam the region.

The story goes that back in 1911, two miners who had entered the cave to excavate guano (bat excrement) had unexpectedly unearthed around 60 humans skeletons.

Some of them, they claimed, were very large indeed - standing around 7-8ft in height.

Sadly, the whereabouts of these skeletons remains unknown, but in the years that followed, subsequent digs inside the cave yielded the discovery of a multitude of other finds.

While many of these were nothing particularly unusual (such as arrowheads, basket weaves and ceremonial objects), the artifacts also included more curious items such as an enormous sandal that appeared to have been well used.

Measuring 15 inches long, the sandal would be the equivalent of a modern size 29 shoe.

A very large handprint that was double normal size was also found etched into the stone.

So could this mean that tales of giants in the cave could actually have some merit ?

Radiocarbon dating has dated the various artifacts in the cave back to between 2030 BC and 1218 BC, so whoever these people were it has been up to 4,000 years since they were there.

As things stand, without access to the skeletons allegedly discovered back in the 1900s, we may never know for sure if the cave's inhabitants were true giants or not.

Fascinating story. I first heard this story years ago. I wonder has or is there any serious research being done on this mystery. With all these stories about past giants, you would think there would be a dedicated organization researching these cases.
