Saker Farm Giant
"On the episode [of America Unearthed] "Giants in Minnesota," [Scott] Wolter was contacted by a northern Minnesota farmer, a Roger Saker, who tells the researcher that years before he had stumbled across some bones that he believed belonged to a giant human. Saker produced a copy of a nearly 200-year-old newspaper article describing the findings of giant skeletons. He also told Wolter that at the time, when he had unearthed what looked to be human bones, he brought in state and Native American experts to asses the find. Saker said that among the bones, there were three sets, he had personally seen a one huge specimen that in no way resembled the smaller bones and felt that the archaeologists had unearthed a giant."
