Extraordinary Adena Mounds and Earthworks at Charleston, West Virginia Jason Jarrell and Sarah Farmer Beginning around 200 B.C., some regional Adena groups shifted away from the use of dispersed, local burial mounds scattered throughout river valleys and began to construct large-scale ritual sites, which featured aggregates of mounds and earthwork enclosures. One such site was located on

There would seem to be a poverty of YDNA research in America with regards to the Woodland cultures compared to mtDNA. And the article you linked is the same one as before, just retitled for another site I suppose. The Ancient Origins open site does not own exclusive rights to the articles published there, and people pick them up around the internet.

Excellent article on the European DNA Wheeler. Thanks for sharing. Several years ago, when we realized that the Smithsonian had chosen to edit the Tall Ones out of their discoveries, we decided to consult early Antiquarians for insights into the mound builders--after all, since the anthropology had been obfuscated, we felt there could be more. One of the first documents we obtained was th

Jason Jarrell and Sarah Farmer Since 2015, we have been working with the extraordinary artist Marcia K Moore, who has produced artistic recreations of living Adena-Hopewell people. Several of these recreations appear in our book, "Ages of the Giants". For this project, Marcia was sent several files of photographs of actual Adena skulls, from which she selected specimens to reconst

The destruction of the McKees Rocks mound is a legendary venture. The archaeologist in charge of excavations had an ongoing vanity feud with his own assistant, which contributed to tensions on site also.

Actually, several dwarfish skeletons have been found in Woodland mounds. Also, the most famous Adena artifact ever discovered is a dwarf effigy pipe recovered from the Adena Mound on the Worthington estate in Ohio.

Well, I always encourage people to make their own interpretations. My job is to (1) document evidence and (2) make suggestions based on what the evidence actually says. But I don't mind that people have different opinions. That being said, it isn't just the Adena Culture that clearly did not universally ascribe leadership positions to the Tall Ones. The same can be said for the Late Archaic p

The Nephilim Question Jason Jarrell In recent years there has been an explosion of books and documentaries that claim that various ancient people from around the world were the Biblical Nephilim. This subject has become so popular that it serves as the foundation for entire media studios and publication companies, and more often than not the Tall Ones from ancient America are cited as evide

Jason Jarrell and Sarah Farmer Until around 1970, American archaeologists considered the people buried in the Adena mounds of the Ohio Valley to represent a distinct population. This was due to the fact that Adena skeletons possessed certain characteristics which were not observed in most of the populations that preceded and succeeded them. It should be emphasized that these were not traits th

There were not 13-20 ft tall giants in America. As I explained in the "Adena Socio-Political Structure" article, the Tall Ones had no special access to social roles in Adena society, and they were definitely a part of the Adena population "at large".

The article mentions the prestigious female from McKess Rocks. In fact, she was the central burial in the primary mound.

The Smithsonian didn't need to lose the skeletons, since the large remains that they excavated are clearly described in their own documents as disintegrating. As for the Smithsonian discovering the large remains--there is absolutely no question that they did. The remains are in their own field reports.

In our book we document the existence of the Tall Ones from roughly 3500 B.C. to 450 A.D. Adena and Hopewell (1000 B.C.--450 A.D.) are simply the cultures which they are most famously associated with. The large skeletal remains were also found in the tombs of cultures which were ancestors of Adena-Hopewell, including the Laurentian Archaic/Old Copper and Red Ocher/Glacial Kame cultures, w

At Aine: Although archaeologists frequently use the average stature range for Adena in Webb and Snow's Adena People No. 1, which is 5.51 feet for males 5.20 for females, the fact is that they based this ratio on studies of the bones of a mere 20 males and 6 females from Kentucky well enough preserved for measurement. Considering that the Adena Culture was also in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, a

There are three surviving Mounds here in Charleston which we wrote about extensively in the book "Ages of the Giants". The giants and burial mounds at Grave Creek as well as those of Pennsylvania are both also heavily discussed in our book. If you visit the articles archive on our website yo

The Socio-Political Structure of Adena Societies Jason Jarrell and Sarah Farmer Since the early research in the 19th century, the issue of the social structure of the Adena mound building culture of the Ohio Valley (1000 B.C.—300 A.D.) has been at the center of considerable debate. More often than not the waxing and waning of trends in archaeological studies have affected the subject, as
