This presentation was banned from ted talks because it was "debunked"
Jim Viera then easily debunked the debunk.
He provides data on some amazing discoveries including Ancient Giants of North America.
Well worth a watch.
This is a text of his explanation of suppression of this subject.
He also only claims that the "giants" were 7 to 11 feet. Probably more around 7 feet.Stonemason and historical detective, Jim Vieira, discussed the ceremonial stone structures of North America as well as how the archaeological evidence for giants in America has been covered up.” There are structures of earth and stone, thousands of years old, in every part of the United States,” Vieira marveled. While he has found over 10,000 stone mounds around Massachusetts alone, he lamented that many great works were dismantled during colonial times as settlers used the materials for their roads and bridges. For instance, Vieira cited an archaeologist’s report of a 55-foot high stone pyramid in Illinois that had been plundered by colonists, who removed “tens of thousands of cartloads of stone.”
Regarding giants in America, Vieira explained that, while searching through old town histories in Massachusetts for information on stone structures, he stumbled upon remarkable accounts of anomalous human skeletons being discovered. According to the reports from the time, the skeletons ranged from 7 to 11 feet tall and had skulls which sported double rows of teeth. “There are thousands of these accounts,” Vieira said, “by doctors, scientists, anthropologists, archaeologists, farmers and over decades and decades of time all around the country.” These skeletons, he added, were often found within the mysterious stone mounds and, sometimes, were sometimes buried amongst great treasures.
Vieira attributed the suppression of information on the ancient American giants to the Smithsonian Institute, specifically their first director of anthropology Ales Hrdlicka. Described by Vieira as a “pre-Nazi eugenicist,” Hrdlicka allegedly censored reports of giants and marginalized them from the historic record in order to depict Native Americans as “unsophisticated and uninspiring.” Additionally, Vieira reported that there are many accounts of Smithsonian representatives traveling around the country to where these anomalous remains were discovered and “taking the giant skeletons away, never to be seen again.” Ultimately, he contended that the cover up continues to this day and claimed that a video presentation on his findings was pulled from the Internet because it threatened the scientific orthodoxy.
Stonemason and historical detective, Jim Vieira, studies the ancient ceremonial structures of North America including mounds, walls and star cities, as well as the archeological evidence for giants that existed in ancient America.
