This leg was found sticking out of solid red quartzite rock dating from the time of the dinosaurs. The area was searched for more remains but nothing else was found.After using their picks to extract their find from the rock they took it to Eureka. This story was heavily published in the newspapers of the time.I did an internet search on this subject and found that the reported heights are very different from what I am stating here.(Internet says 6.5 feet to 8 feet.) My account is from what I was told growing up in Nevada.Medical doctors examined the bones and stated that it did indeed belong to a human of very modern appearance. For over 20 years now I have been living in the islands of Hawaii.
Both skeletons were wrapped in a gum treated fabric.Any giants that did run out were shot with arrows, the remaining giants were asphyxiated.In the 1800s this cave was known as Horseshoe Cave but is now called Lovelock Cave.Lovelock cave is located around 20 miles South of Lovelock Nevada.In 1911 bat guano harvesters started working in this same cave.
