The Giants of Stonehenge and Ancient Britain
Hugh Newman and Jim Vieira



Hugh Newman is an explorer, megalithomaniac and author of Earth Grids: The Secret Pattern of Gaia’s Sacred Sites (2008), Stone Circles (2017) and co-author of Giants on Record (2015) and contributed to Megalith: Studies In Stone (2018). He has been a regular guest on History Channel’s Ancient Aliens and featured in Search for the Lost Giants. As well as organising the Megalithomania conferences and tours, he has spoken at events in the UK, Malta, France, Peru, Egypt, Bosnia and North America. He lives very close to Stonehenge.

Jim Vieira is a stonemason, author, explorer and host of the History Channel shows Search for the Lost Giants (2014) Roanoke: Search for the Lost Colony (2015) and Return to Roanoke: Search the Seven (2016). He is also co-author of Giants on Record with Hugh Newman. Jim has investigated worldwide ancient stone sites, studied global indigenous oral traditions, religious documents, the readings of the great mystics and the literature of secret societies to form an alternative theory regarding the origins of civilization. A theory almost in perfect alignment with the readings of the famed sleeping prophet, Edgar Cayce.

The book will be published in May/June 2021 by Avalon Rising Publications.

Stories of giants being involved in the construction of megalithic sites, earthworks and other ancient monuments have been alive in the consciousness of the British for millennia. Legends and creation stories hark back to an earlier age of elemental beings, high magic and giant kings ruling the land. Religious documents, medieval chronicles, oral traditions and origin stories all recount converging tales of giants being an integral part of the founding of the British Isles. Giant effigies are still paraded around many cities and towns, keeping this ancient memory alive. Mystics, sages and esoteric sources all speak of giants as a literal reality, often originating in a lost sunken realm off the coast of Ireland. Even Stonehenge’s creation is attributed to remarkably tall and powerful builders. These were not only giant in stature, but also giants in intelligence, skill and wisdom.

Collating hundreds of historical accounts of massive bones and skeletons being found in the vicinity of sites such as Stonehenge, adds some credence to the idea that age-old myths encoded detailed histories and insights from many thousands of years ago. These were often linked with the secret arts, forgotten sciences and magic from a fabled “Golden Age”. The once-lost epic annals of Ireland, secret Scottish archives, old manuscripts of Wales and Druidic traditions of England have revealed a lost timeline, a missing chapter in human history that provides evidence of giant human beings inhabiting, ruling and building the megalithic master works of Albion.

The reality of giants existing in prehistoric times is put under the microscope in this book, with the investigation of obscure newspaper accounts, antiquarian diaries, archaeological reports, local history records, newly-translated ancient texts, academic papers, and written evidence from hundreds of sources going back over a 2000 year period. In our previous publication, Giants On Record: America’s Hidden History, Secrets in the Mounds and the Smithsonian Files (2015), we examined the evidence from across the Atlantic. North America has many legends of the ‘Tall Ones’ and several thousand historical, archaeological and news sources support the notion that giants once existed there, so why not in Britain?



It seems that the giants, although sometimes misperceived as legendary figures, were also masters of surveying, astronomy and landscape knowledge to an extremely high degree. Many were remembered as high-kings and rulers of the country, often inhabiting mountain-tops or hillforts. The origins of all four countries of the British Isles are intimately connected to ruling giants. Their legacy, when understood properly and investigated with an open mind, can lead to the conclusion that ancient Britain and its giant rulers were held in high esteem by the British populus and quite possibly by the rest of the world.

That being said, there is the dark side to much of this giant lore with dozens of tales of maelevolent giants with cannabilistic tendencies, violent attacks and unruly behaviour, just like we find in the Bible and in other ancient traditions worldwide. We hope this book can bring this obscure but fascinating story to life and highlight what a truly immense mystery this is.
