A well-known American zoologist, Ivan T. Sanderson, told a peculiar story about a letter he accepted from Alan Makshir, an engineer assigned on the Aleutian Island of Shemya during World War II.
During the construction of a landing field, his working crew demolished a group of hills and apparently, underneath some sedimentary layers, they found human remains. The Alaskan heap was actually a burial ground of enormous human remains that included skulls and log leg bones.
The skull was around 22 inches from base to crown and 11 inches wide. A common adult’s skull measures about 8 inches from back to front, thus, this implies such a large cranium belonged to an immense creature.
The ancient titans had a double row of teeth and unduly flatheads.
Moreover, every skull had an accurate cut hole in its upper part, which is part of the process called trepanning. The tradition of compressing the skull of an infant in order for it to grow in an elongated shape was a usual procedure for the ancient Peruvians, the Mayas, and the Flathead Indians of Montana.
Mr. Sanderson made effort to collect additional evidence when he later received another letter which confirmed his doubts. Both letters suggested that the Smithsonian Institution gathered the mysterious remains but nothing further was explained.
Sanderson is sure this Institution has the evidence in their hands but he is curious why they don’t publish their information. He asked: “Is it that these people cannot face rewriting all the textbooks?”
