Ivan T. Sanderson, a well-known American naturalist, shared an interesting account about a letter he got from Alan Makshir, an engineer stationed on Shemya Island in the Aleutians during WWII.
Alan Makshir and his working team were tasked with constructing a landing field when they destroyed a few hills and discovered human bones beneath certain sedimentary layers. They discovered what seemed to be a burial area for some massive human remains, including gigantic skulls and bones.
From base to head, one skull was 11 inches broad and 22 inches long. A typical adult skull measures 8 inches in length from back to front. A huge person must have possessed a massive cranium like this. Giants in the past had a second row of teeth and irrational flatheads. Every skull had a perfectly carved hole in the upper side that was trepanned.
The Mayans of Peru, as well as the Flathead Indians of Montana, had the practice of squeezing an infant’s skull in order to cause it to develop in an elongated form.
Mr. Sanderson attempted to gather additional proof when he got the second letter, but it just reaffirmed his suspicions. The Smithsonian Institute had confiscated the mystery remains, according to both letters.
Mr. Sanderson is aware that the Smithsonian Institution owns the bones and is perplexed as to why they refuse to make their findings public. “Can’t people face the rewriting of history?” he wondered.
