According to a British anthropology research team head Russell Dement, since 2013, 6 Giant human skeletons were discovered ranging between 7 and 8 feet (213 to 243 centimeters) in height.
These tall skeletons which were found in the Ecuador and Peru Amazon regions are being studied in Germany. Also, this discovery suggests that a race of tall people once lived in Amazon’s deep rain forests. These skeletons are dated back to the early 1400s and mid-1500s.
According to the research team, a skeleton had been uncovered by a local of Loja Province which is approximately 70 miles (112 kilometers) from Cuenca, Ecuador in the year 2013. Later the team recovered a rib cage and skull of a female which had been exposed by flooding. Subsequently, the rest of the skeleton was also located. After assembling the entire structure, it measured about 7 feet 4 inches (223.5 centimetres) in height. The skeleton was thought to date 600 years ago.

Within 6 months of excavations and mapping at two different sites: one outside of Cuenca, and another approximately 32 kilometers (20 miles) away on the Ecuadorian-Peruvian border, the team had found 5 more tall skeletons, as well as artifacts dating to about 1550.
Earlier this year archaeologists in Bulgaria discovered the remains of a “huge skeleton” in downtown Varna, a city on the shores of the Black Sea. The size of the bones suggests a very tall man.
Extremely tall humans or giants can easily be referred to as Robert Wadlow, known as the “Alton Giant”, cited as the tallest person in recorded history. Wadlow was born in Alton, Illinois, the USA in 1918, and at his death was 8 feet 11 inches (2.72 meters) tall.
Another modern Gigant includes Charles Byrne (1761-1783), known as “The Irish Giant,” whose measurements are approximately 7 feet 7 inches (2.31 meters) tall. His skeleton is now on display at the Royal College of Surgeons of England in London.
