The remains of horned skulls that were discovered in Bradford County, Pennsylvania during the 1880s, in an event that aroused much suspicion at the time. The bodies were anatomically identical to human beings, save for the fact that they were extra large at 7 feet, and on some of the skulls, there were two-inch horns. The investigation was a routine archaeological expedition on an ancient burial ground. The ‘giants’ were said to have died over 900 years ago.
An Interesting Find: ‘Giants’ with Horned Skulls
While it might be something of a stretch to call these remains ‘giants,’ the story has some interesting details, aside from the horns in the skulls. The first source appears to have originated in 1916 with the caption “Chemung’s Predecessors Huge Giants: Were Seven Feet Tall and Had Horns” – Thursday, July 12, 1916.
The group that is said to be responsible for the excavation were the Moorehead expedition, spearheaded by A.B. Skinner and W.K. Moorehead. The remains were taken to the American Investigation Museum in Philadelphia, but from there, the trail appears to have gone cold.
What is very revealing about these findings is that all traces seem to vanish. The discovery was initially mentioned in journals and scientific articles, but they were later removed (at least according to this book and other sources). Without further information, it seems that nothing more can be assumed from events over a century old.
Wearing Horns and Crowns
Some have claimed that these skeletons are those of the Nephilim or “Shining Ones,” who are often depicted with horns on their heads. Horns are said to be symbols of wisdom and of leadership, which is why, in the past, shamans and priests often wore ceremonial horns and rulers wore crowns. However, others perceive horned skulls to be evil. (One example is that of the Night King in Game of Thrones.)
It is a wonder that we do not learn about these discoveries in school textbooks. Information redaction is a common theme with many unusual events in the past. However, in the modern age, one must remember that redacting information about events is much more difficult to achieve.
