2014: False Giants

In 2014, the topic of possible archeological evidence of a race of giants found renewed interest, partly due to a History Channel program that followed two investigators looking into the newspaper reports of giants of the 1800's. Unfortunately, along with this renewed interest in the topic also came new false reports of such evidence. Annoying though it is, this is a pretty normal occurence with unusual topics, be they historical, scientific, or paranormal; when a topic becomes popular, people start trying to profit from it by just adding new "facts" that sound good, and that they are the initial source for... without worrying about what adding false facts to the topic might do overall. So, without further ado, let's review some of the more common false claims of archeological giants, and try to narrow down who's to blame.
