Do you like surprises? BIG,BIG, BIG ones?


Yes, I must tell you what happened when I went ashore on a
tiny island in the South Pacific ocean.

One of the most beautiful, remote and unspoilt of the Pacific
islands is Rotuma.  You won’t find it in most atlases. And on
the best of atlases it it would be just a speck.

A mere 9 miles (14 kilometers) long, and off the usual
shipping routes, this once volcanic island remains
unexploited and unspoilt. And my wish is, may it stay that


On my first visit to the island, I went cycling with one of the
men, Fatiaki Tui. On the outskirts of each village, or in the
center of a few, was a large cemetery containing hundreds
of stone memorials of different shapes and sizes.

Fatiaki explained that the islanders call the cemeteries
”tumuras”, and that the mourners spend much time by the
graves, some even sleeping there for weeks after the death
of a relative.

You see, because of a shortage of burial ground, many are
buried above ground level in coffins placed on top of huge
stone slabs. About 20 years after a burial, when the villagers
think that the corpse has sufficiently decomposed, the coffin
is opened and a newly deceased body added to the contents.

Anyway, I just stopped and scanned the spot.

“What a large area those burial grounds cover!” I said to

“You have not seen anything yet,” he grinned, “not until you
have seen the graves of the giants. Come on. It’s only a
short distance. I will show you.”


We walked through the village of Motusa to an ancient
tumura filled with huge graves built above the ground. Each
grave was an enclosure of four upright slabs weighing
several tons each, set in a rectangle with a roof made from
another impressive stone.

“Where did these slabs come from? How could anyone have
carried them here?” I asked in amazement.

“The only possible place they could have come from is the
hillsides near Losa. People must have levered them off the
hills and then dragged or carried them the mile between
Losa and this spot.”

“Wow!” I exclaimed. “What strength that must have required!
These rocks are huge. You were not jesting when you called
this the grave of giants.”

“No, I certainly wasn’t,” said Fatiaki. “And there is much
more evidence which suggests that a race of giants once
lived on this island.


“You remember the road you cycled on today? When it was
built in 1927, the labourers uncovered an old cemetery
containing bones of a size that indicated they belonged to
bodies at least 12 feet tall.

“They quickly and fearfully re-buried all the bones and
changed the course of the road.  So those giant bones still
rest in the cemetery today.”

A few weeks later I had the opportunity to climb Mount
Sororoa, a high peak at the western end of the island.

As my climbing partner Bola and I reached the summit, he
stopped and looked straight at me.


“Jonathan,” he said, “during the second world war, coast
watchers climbed up here and began to build a watch house.
As they dug holes for the corner posts, they uncovered shin
bones over 3 feet (1 meter) long.”

You can figure this outside for yourself. Again, only a 12 foot
man would have leg bones that size.

“They also found human teeth which they described as big
like a horse’s teeth.


“And in this same general area, while searching for places to
hide in case of Japanese invasion, the people found caves
filled with giant human bones.”


Then, in 1984, Kijian Taksas (whom I have personally met)
was supervising the digging of a new grave.

The workers unearthed an ancient shin bone.  Kijian placed
one end of it on the ground and measured to her hip – that
ancient shin bone was almost 3 feet long.

All of this, then, points to an early race of great stature
before the Micronesian and Polynesian people arrived. A race
of giants.


Whatever happened to them is a mystery.

But that’s only one place in the world. Evidence of giants
surfaces – it seems – almost everywhere.

Do you have knowledge from your area of ancient giant
remains – and better, can you lay your hands on a good,
genuine photograph or two? If so, I may be interested. We
are still searching for more well documented evidence.
Please let me know.

Meanwhile I have published an ebook, “The Lost World of

It contains almost 100 giant discoveries and reports, with a
few pictures. If you’d like to get it for yourself, here’s

About Jonathan Gray

International explorer, archaeologist and author Jonathan Gray has travelled the world to gather data on ancient mysteries. Jonathan has published more than 100 books and videos, written several hundred papers, and hosted newspaper columns. He writes in a popular, conversational style, but with a keen eye for evidence to support his findings. The documentation sometimes includes certificates, private letters and facts that others refuse to publish. A controversial, highly sought after speaker, Jonathan has appeared on numerous television and radio shows worldwide, and lectures to audiences on every continent. He is a hands-on archaeologist. Over the past 47 years, he has penetrated some largely unexplored areas, including parts of the Amazon headwaters. He has also led expeditions to the bottom of the sea and to remote mountain and desert regions of the world. His findings include evidence of ancient Egyptians in the Americas, remains of ancient giants on a remote Pacific island and of Egyptian chariot parts and skeletal remains scattered over the seabed. As distinct from the general archaeologist who specialises in a particular locality or theme of interest, Jonathan Gray’s research is into global patterns. This unique approach has propelled him to the forefront of little-known discoveries that shake traditional theories of our past. Archaeology first grabbed Jonathan at the age of ten – when he read a magazine article telling how British explorer Percy Fawcett had found a dead, vine choked city in the wilds of the Amazon. The ruins were guarded by savages wielding clubs and poison darts. As it turned out, Jonathan’s first expedition was into that same unexplored region… where natives shrank human heads to the size of an orange. In the course of his explorations in more than 30 countries, Jonathan began to uncover evidence of surprising “out of place” artefacts. According to what he was taught at school, these were impossible! They simply should not exist! And these were not just isolated anomalies. There was a global pattern to them, suggesting an ancient worldwide civilization of astonishing proportions. That’s when he knew that someone had to speak up. He realised that this information was of tremendous value. WEBSITES, BOOKS, DVDs WEBSITE BOOKS Dead Men's Secrets: * * * * * * *
