References to giants abound in general folklore and rural place names around here.
Supports the mass accretion variant of the Expanding Earth Theory..?
They have no clue why stone age people would build such huge structures up here as the Giant's churches. Fascinating.

Anything that could upset the paradigm has been sanitized or removed courtesy endless war.
History gets rewritten after every conflict, or anytime a new bunch of jackboot thugs pull a coup d'é·tat.

It is located circa 60 kilometers southwest from the town of Oulu on the coastal area of the Northern Ostrobothnia. The site consists of several structures and archaeological features, of which the most prominent is a large rectangular stone enclosure. The size of the structure is 52 x 30 meters. The total area of the site is approximately 3,4 hectares. Altogether 43 similar giants’ church sites are known in Finland. According to isostatic land uplift and shore line displacement chronology, the sites have been dated to the Stone Age. The archaeological finds from the sites also point to the same age. The earliest studies concerning the Kastelli site are from the 1860s. In 1862 one cairn was excavated, but finds were not discovered. In 1920 another excavation was held – this time the enclosure was under research. All the finds – quarts tools and fragments of slate artifacts – pointed to the Stone Age. In 2001 the Finnish National Board of Antiquities arranged the survey and small-scale excavation at the Kastelli site. Mapping the site and sampling datable material was in priority. During the intensive survey 43 heaps of fire-cracked stones were discovered. There are also seven dwelling depressions and 19 cairns at the site. The results obtained by OSL would date the heaps of fire-cracked stones 2800–2200 BC. The TL-samples point to the period 2600–2400 BC. The radiocarbon-samples collected from the excavated heaps can be dated to the 2890–2580 BC. The archaeological finds at the Kastelli site are typical to the Stone Age: quarts flakes and tools, and some fragments of stone tools. From the test-pit dug in the dwelling depression fragment of asbestos tempered pottery was found. Evidently it belonged to the pottery-type which can be dated roughly to the middle or late Neolithic, approximately 2900–1800 BC. At the Kastelli site, the result of the different independent dating methods, such as shoreline chronology, pottery typology, TL and OSL together with Radiocarbon-method, can be compared. They all seem to point out to the same date – to middle of the 3rd millennium BC. The Kastelli giants’ church can be seen as an evidence of the social and cultural changes which took place within the hunter-gatherer societies in the region of Ostrobothnia Finland during the middle Neolithic. The increasing number of dwelling depressions, cairns and giants’ churches is noticeable in archaeological record around 2500 BC. This development is connected to the more complex social structures and it may indicate symbolic and ritual competition between the trans-egalitarian societies, which were living in the Northern shores of the Baltic Sea. The exotic goods i. e. amber finds clearly point out that beside the material artifacts also the ideas were exchanged between the agriculturalists of Southern Baltic and hunter-gatherers in the North.just looks like a mound of rocks in a square ...couldnt really find much more on them
