Patrick Christopher Chouinard: Lost Race of the Giants
An exploration of mythological and archaeological evidence for prehistoric giants
• Examines the many corresponding giant mythologies throughout the world, such as the Greek and Roman titans, Norse frost giants, and the biblical Nephilim
• Reveals recent finds of giant skeletons in the deserts of Saudi Arabia and India
• Explains how giants passed on their sophisticated culture and civilization to humanity before being wiped out in the great age of cataclysms and floods
Giants are a cornerstone of the myths, legends, and traditions of almost every culture on Earth. Stories of giants are often considered fantasies of the ancients or primitive attempts to explain natural phenomena, but archaeological discoveries of 10- and 12-foot skeletons–many of which have been suppressed–confirm the existence of a forgotten golden age of giants before recorded history.
Patrick Chouinard examines the staggering number of corresponding giant mythologies throughout the world, such as the Greek and Roman titans, Norse frost giants, the Hindu Daityas, the biblical Nephilim, the Celtic Formorach, the Sumerian Anunnaki, and the multitude of myths in which the sky or world is held aloft on the shoulders of a giant. He links these stories to Atlantis as well as other legends of prehistoric civilizations lost to cataclysm and great floods whose survivors spawned the rise of ancient civilizations.
