A 5-meter-tall (about 16.5-foot-tall) human skeleton was found in Australia in 2015.
Professor Hans Zimmer of the University of Adelaide says that the find is further perplexing because it was made amid the ancient ruins of the only megalithic civilization ever unearthed in Australia.
Astonished, he confesses, “The finding of Uluru last year was already a surprise, but this latest find is absolutely jaw-dropping.”
It is impossible to imagine a five-metre hominid. Why did this happen? It’s hard to imagine. “This is a fascinating finding, but it leaves us with more questions than answers,” he admits.
this was originally posted on a well-known entertainment website, which disclaims that all of its content is “completely fictitious” and satirical in nature.
“UFOmania – The truth is out there” on YouTube, for instance, repackaged WNDR’s information in 2017 into a film. Almost a year later, the website ScienceVibe published this article as news. Historic, a Facebook page, re-shared this article in June 2019.
They do not show a 5-meter-tall human. It’s not Australia, but France, where these photos were shot in November 2012. An archaeologist is digging woolly mammoth remains from a quarry site not far from the city of Paris.
“Helmut” is a nickname given to a preserved woolly mammoth skeleton that is thought to date from between 125,000 and 200,000 years old, near Changis-Sur-Marne, east of Paris on November 8, 2012.
Mammoth skeleton found near Paris with small bits of flint tools, suggesting it was hacked up by prehistoric hunters.
They claim that if this idea is verified, their discovery would be the clearest ever evidence of interaction between mammoths and ancient cavemen in this region of Europe, assuming they are right.
An identical woolly mammoth remains in the other image. It was shot by Denis Gliksman of INRAP and is published on the website Sciences et Avenir with the accompanying caption.
HELMUTH. Un mammoth skeleton was discovered in July at a Gallo-Roman ruins site. An estimated 200,000 to 50,000 years before our age, this species would have been in existence. There have only been four specimens of this species discovered in France in the last century and a half.
A 5-meter-tall human skeleton found in Australia is not seen here.
A 150,000-year-old woolly mammoth skeleton dubbed “Helmut” was unearthed in 2012 in Paris.
“Giant human skeletons” have gone popular on the Internet before. About a few of these so-called “discoveries” we’ve already written about earlier. A true old gigantic human skeleton has yet to be discovered.
