Eight Foot Giant's Tomb Photographed in Ross County, Ohio


This is a photograph of the burial mound near Londonderry, Ohio in Ross County where the eight foot skeleton was removed.  This photo was taken before the excavation.

It was reported in the  The Washington Post, in 1898 that a skeleton was removed from this mound that was 8 feet long. The bones were further described as "massive' anf the skull was a third larger than  a modern skull.

Although much reduced in size the burial mound at Londerry, is still visible in this field.  Note how the contour of the hill in the background matches the original, earlier photo.
