Of Giants, Dragons and Men




Like all children, I was always fascinated by the stories of giants and in 1977, I met one.


I was with my dad in the basement of the Woolworth Store in Huddersfield when one such approached us. My dad knew him. This giant was, my dad informed me, 7 foot 2 in height and he was a colleague of his at David Brown Gears in Lockwood where they both worked. I shook his hand and watched in awe as my father chatted with this man who towered some 13 inches above him.


That Giants once existed in greater numbers is beyond doubt: all over the world, there have been found thousands of unearthed skeletal remains of people of great stature, all over 7 feet in height and some European records detail men who were 9 and 10 feet tall.


Being the father of two small children, my interest has been revived through those stories we read together – Jack the Giant Killer (and the Beanstalk), Thor’s battles with the ice giants, the Green Knight and the children’s version of Beowulf are among our favourites.


To quote the learned Jason Breshears of ,


The world is not what we think.”


Indeed, the world we are passing through is a marvellous creation that is, when one pays attention and rises beyond the multifarious level of skullduggery and deception pumped out from the cesspit of our would-be controllers via their controlled media, is truly magical in nature. When I say passing through, I mean it quite literally –



The video, “Beowulf of the Nephilim”, linked below is wonderful examination of the ancient epic narrative poem, “Beowulf” and the eponymous hero’s defeat of the monstrous Giants, Grendel and his swamp-dwelling mother. It captured my interest to such an extent that I recorded a podcast on the giant Green Knight story that touches on some of the issues.


As Jason posits at the end,


 Are we really going to disparage the intellect of our ancestors by claiming they were superstitious?”


After all, from the ancient epic of Gilgamesh to that of David defeating Goliath and to the so-called ‘fairy’ tale of Jack and the Beanstalk, there exist detailed writings of eye-witnesses to these stories of giants, of dragons and other huge reptilian, fen and marsh dwelling creatures, as well as material evidence of their existence (all of which are confirmed by the skeletal remains many of which were hidden and/or destroyed by the Smithsonian Institute).


No. In a world of lies, distortions, smoke and mirrors, we are compelled, as truth seekers, to reverse all that is mediated to us through the web of lies we are presented with.


The late William Cooper, in his extraordinary book,  “After the flood: The Early Post-flood History of Europe Traced Back to Noah”, details the historical accuracy of the Beowulf narrative to the point where he lays out the evidence that Beowulf and the other characters were actual people whose existence is demonstrated in the historical records that survive to this day.


On the morning of the 7th February, 2023, I read 2 of the chapters: Chapter 10 Dinosaurs from Anglo-Saxon and other Records and Chapter 11 Beowulf and the Creatures of Denmark.


My interest was particularly piqued by the photograph of a stone frieze in the Church at Breedon-on-the-Hill. As soon as I noted it is but 18 miles from Nottingham, we packed up our lunch and headed off in search of the carved stone that likely depicts the kind of creatures that the historical character, Beowulf slew. According to the historical record, Beowulf was renowned for clearing the seas of giant serpents and killing these swamp-dwelling creatures,


By the time of his slaying the monster Grendel in AD 515, Beowulf himself had already become something of a seasoned dinosaur hunter. He was renowned amongst the Danes at Hrothgar’s court for having cleared the local sea lanes of monstrous animals whose predatory natures had been making life hazardous for the open boats of the Vikings.


As I read more of Cooper’s brilliant work, it becomes ever clearer that, far from being mythical creatures created by our ancestors and their over-active imaginations, these swamp-dwelling creatures actually existed and have become buried under the voluminous falsities commonly known as ‘dinosaurs’, the phoney narrative of which requires us to believe they existed millions of years ago. The numerous Anglo-Saxon referenced terms in the epic poem that apply to giants are tabled in his book and I have attached the pdfs of the two above-referenced chapters, along with a link to the website whence Cooper’s book can be purchased for just £7.


How marvelous it is to read that there are numerous first-hand and accurately written historical records that are mirrored in the place-names of hundreds of places around the isles of Britain, both in the records of the ancient British and the later invading Anglo-Saxons. The very fact that these stone carvings of these creatures are to be found in churches around the country and the world too, shows us how close how ancestors actually were to these ‘swamp things’ .


How unsurprising then that the establishment Oxbridge-miseducated fake historical authorities so readily dismiss our ancient history as those of a primitive people who simply imagined sea serpents, dragons and other swamp dwelling creatures as being but figments of their stupid minds. For these ivory tower dwellers, the phoney judges, professors and professional deceivers have woven together webs of intricate nonsense to such an extent that they have only succeeded in entrapping themselves in their own sticky spidery traps.


Carved in Stone and Recorded in Writing


Grendel and his mother are described as descended from Cain, as monsters who are bipedal. Indeed, they appear to have been human in form, albeit grotesque versions,


“Between lines 1345-1355 of the poem, Hrothgar relates to Beowulf the following information when describing Grendel and one of the monster’s companions:


‘Ic thaet londbuend leode mine seleraedende secgan hyrde thaet hie gesawon swylce twegen micle mearcstapan moras healdan ellorgaestas. Thaera other waes thaes the hie gewislicost gewitan meahton idese onlicnes, other earmsceapen on weres waestmum sraeclastas traed naefne he waes mara thonne aenig man other thone on geardagum Grendel nemdon foldbuende . . . ’ (emphases mine)


. . . the best translation of which is Alexander’s:—


‘I have heard it said by subjects o f mine who live in the country, counsellors in this hall, that they have seen such a pair o f huge wayfarers haunting the moors, otherworldly ones; and one of them, so far as they might make it out, was in woman’s shape; but the shape of a man, though twisted, trod also the tracks of exile — save that he was more huge than any human being. The country people have called him from of old by the name of Grendel . . . ’


“The key words from this passage, and from which we gain important information concerning the physical appearance of Grendel, are idese onlicnes when referring to the female monster, and wereswaestmum when referring to the male. Those Danes who had seen the monsters thought that the female was the older of the two and supposed that she was Grendel’s mother, but what exactly do the descriptive terms tell us that is of such importance? Simply this: that the female was in the shape of a woman (idese onlicnes ) and the male was in the shape of a man (weres waestmum). In other words, they were both bipedal, but larger than any human.”


The images below are photographs I took of the actual stone carvings that can be viewed in the church at Breedon-on-the-Hill,





Whilst the descriptions and associated Anglo-Saxon vocabulary refer consistently to him being some kind of giant-monster hybrid descended from the accursed Cain, there are numerous British historical sources which describe also the huge reptilian creatures which attacked people and livestock, many of which are from only a few hundred years ago.


All around the world we have ancient stone carvings such as these that depict these swamp creatures of yore, all of which are invariably misrepresented as the mere fancies of our primitive ancestors and, yet, the historical records that predate Genesis all reveal stand as testimonies to the factual existence of these creatures and the giants of old.


Cooper writes,


“The early Britons, from whom the modern Welsh are descended, provide us with our earliest surviving European accounts of reptilian monsters, one of whom killed and devoured king Morvidus (Morydd) in about 336 BC […] that the monster ‘gulped down the body o f Morvidus as a big fish swallows a little one.’ Geoffrey wrote of the monster under its Latin name, Belua.


Peredur, not the ancient king of that name (306-296 BC), but a much later son of Earl Efrawg, had better luck than Morvidus, actually managing to slay his monster, an addanc (pronounced athanc: variant afanc), at a place called Llyn Llion in Wales. At other Welsh locations the addanc is further spoken of along with another reptilian species known as the carrog. The addanc survived until comparatively recent times at such places as Bedd-yr- Afanc near Brynberian, at Llyn-yr-Afanc above Bettwsy- Coed on the River Conwy (the killing of this monster was described in the year 1693), and Llyn Barfog (see Appendix). A carrog is commemorated at Carrog near Corwen, and at Dol-y-Carrog in the Vale of Conwy.


“In England and Scotland, again until comparatively recent times, other reptilian monsters were sighted and spoken of in many places. Table 1 lists 81 locations in the British Isles alone in which dinosaur activity has been reported (there are, in fact, nearly 200 such places in Britain). But perhaps the most relevant aspect of this, as far as our present study is concerned, is the fact that some of these sightings and subsequent encounters with living dinosaurs can be dated to the very recent past. The giant reptile at Bures in Suffolk, for example, is known to us from a chronicle of 1405,


‘Close to the town of Bures, near Sudbury, there has lately appeared, to the great hurt o f the countryside, a dragon, vast in body, with a crested head, teeth like a saw, and a tail extending to an enormous length. Having slaughtered the shepherd o f a flock, it devoured many sheep . . . ’ After an unsuccessful attempt by local archers to kill the beast, due to its impenetrable hide . . .‘. . in order to destroy him, all the country people around were summoned. But when the dragon saw that he was again to be assailed with arrows, he fled into a marsh or mere and there hid himself among the long reeds, and was no more seen.


“Later in the fifteenth century, according to a contemporary chronicle that still survives in Canterbury Cathedral’s library, the following incident was reported.


On the afternoon of Friday, 26th September, 1449, two giant reptiles were seen fighting on the banks of the RiverStour (near the village of Little Cornard) which marked the English county borders of Suffolk and Essex. One was black, and the other ‘reddish and spotted’. After an hourlong struggle that took place ‘to the admiration of many [of the locals] beholding them the black monster yielded and returned to its lair, the scene of the conflict being known ever since as Sharpfight Meadow.


“As late as August, 1614, the following sober account was given of a strange reptile that was encountered in St Leonard’s Forest in Sussex (the sighting was near a village that was known as Dragon’s Green long before this report was published):


This serpent (or dragon as some call it) is reputed to be nine feete, or rather more, in length, and shaped almost in the form of an axletree of a cart; a quantitie of thickness in the middest, and somewhat smaller at both endes. The former part, which he shootes forth as a necke, is supposed to be an elle [3ft 9 inches or 114 cms] long; with a white ring, as it were, of scales about it. The scales along his back seem to be blackish, and so much as is discovered under his bellie, appeareth to be red . . . it is likewise discovered to have large feete, but the eye may there be deceived, for some suppose that serpents have no feete . . . [The dragon] rids aways (as we call it) as fast as a man can run. His food [rabbits] is thought to be, for the most part, in a coniewarren, which he much frequents . . . There are likewise upon either side of him discovered two great buches so big as a large foote-ball, and (as some thinke) will in time grow to wings, but God, I hope, will (to defend the poor people in the neighbourhood) that he shall be destroyed before he grows to fledge. ’


“This dragon was seen in various places within a circuit of three or four miles, and the pamphlet named some of the still-living witnesses who had seen him. These included John Steele, Christopher Holder and a certain ‘widow woman dwelling neare Faygate.’


“Another witness was ‘the carrier o f Horsham, who lieth at the White Horse [inn] in Southwark.’ One of the locals set his two mastiffs onto the monster, and apart from losing his dogs he was fortunate to escape alive from the encounter, for the dragon was already credited with the deaths of a man and woman at whom it had spat and who consequently had been killed by its venom. When approached unwittingly, our pamphleteer tells us, the monster was . . . ‘. . . o f countenance very proud and at the sight or hearing o f men or cattel will raise his neck upright and seem to listen and looke about, with great arrogancy.’ . . . an eyewitness account of typically reptilian behaviour.


“Again, as late as 27th and 28th May 1669, which fell on a Thursday and Friday, a large reptilian animal was sighted many times, as was reported in the pamphlet: A True Relation of a Monstrous Serpent seen at Henham (Essex) on the Mount in Saffron Waldon .


“In 1867 was seen, for the last time, the monster that lived in the woods around Fittleworth in Sussex. It would run up to people hissing and spitting if they happened to stumble across it unawares, although it never harmed anyone. Several such cases could be cited, but suffice it to say that too many incidents like these are reported down through the centuries and from all sorts of locations for us to say that they are all fairy-tales. For example, Scotland’s famous Loch Ness monster is too often thought to be a recent product of the local Tourist Board’s efforts to bring in some trade, yet Loch Ness is by no means the only Scottish loch where monsters have been reported. Loch Lomond, Loch Awe, Loch Rannoch and the privately owned Loch Morar (over 1000 ft or 305 m deep) also have records of dinosaur activity in recent years.


“Indeed, there have been over forty sightings at Loch Morar alone since the end of the World War II, and over a thousand from Loch Ness in the same period.


“However, as far as Loch Ness itself is concerned, few realize that monstrous reptiles, no doubt the same species, have been sighted in and around the loch since the so-called Dark Ages, the most notable instance being that which is described in Adamnan’s famous 7th century Life of St Columba. There we read that in the year AD 656 Columba, on yet another of his missionary journeys in the north, needed to cross the River Ness.” Bill Cooper, After the Flood (second edition).


So, like Beowulf himself, let’s show our true mettle and do battle. After all, are we not truly in a world of psychological and spiritual warfare? Do we not owe it to our ancestral heritage, to our present selves and future lineage that we do battle and take down these behemoths who would prefer us dead?
