While there are many elaborate hoaxes that show massive bones and strange-looking skeletons all around the globe, there are some discoveries that challenge our understanding of life on Earth. Kap Dwa’s story is beyond fascinating and many find it hard to believe.
So, where did he come from?
The story begins in 1673 when this massive two-headed giant was captured by Spanish sailors where he remained captive until he was killed while trying to escape from his captivators, as the Spaniards killed him with a pike through the chest.
The story fades away after that, but it is believed that his mummified remains somehow got to England in the 19th century.
In 1914, after being passed from one showman to another, the mummified remains of Kap Dwa ended up at Weston’s Birnbeck Pier. There, his remains spent some 45 years on display until “Lord” Thomas Howard purchased the remains in 1959. Kap-Dwa continued to amaze people and somehow ended up in Baltimore Md, in a strange, collection at Bob’s Side Show at The Antique Man Ltd in Baltimore, owned by Robert Gerber and his wife.
According to Gerber, Kap-Dwa was in fact found already dead on a beach with a massive spear embedded in his chest. The ‘creature’ was mummified by locals in Paraguay—not Patagonia— until an English Captain called George Bickle came across his remains, eventually transporting him to England, to a museum in Blackpool where he stayed on display for several years.
Eventually, the mummified remains were transported back to the Americas to Baltimore.
