Unexplained Mysteries Scariest Places on Earth

1. Did Giants Actually Exist?
So let’s break it down: Giants were either a real race of ancient humans, or just very tall people from throughout history. Very tall people do exist and modern science recognizes that they suffer from a rare pituitary condition. Modern medicine can treat this now and stop their uncontrollable growth. It is safe to assume that one hundred years ago and before, there was no treatment and those afflicted continued to grow until their inevitable death.

2. The Ice Woman
This mystery is more recent and even more baffling than the case for giants. On December 20, 1980, on a cold night in Lengby, Minnesota, a 19-year-old woman, Jean Hilliard was driving down a frozen road. She lost control and ran off the road, getting stuck. With the temperature -25 °F (-31 ° C), she desperately needed to reach her neighbor’s house. She didn’t make it. The next morning, the neighbor opened his back door and found Hilliard frozen solid in the snow.

3. The Princes in the Tower
In 1483, King Edward IV of England died, leaving his sons, 12-year-old Prince Edward V of England and 9-year-old Richard of Shrewsbury, Duke of York, as his heirs to the throne. The two princes had been placed under the care of their uncle, the Lord Protector, Richard, Duke of Gloucester. As a precautionary measure, Richard had the princes sequestered in the Tower of London, supposedly to prepare for Edward’s coronation as king.

4. The Bouvet Island Boat Mystery
Bouvet Island is a small 49 square km (19 square miles) piece of land in the South Atlantic, covered in glacier ice and completely uninhabited. It is known as the most remote island on the planet. The closest neighbor is a part of Antarctica called Queen Maud Land, which is over 1600 km (1000 miles) away. In the 1950s, the South African government was conducting some site surveys hoping to find suitable locations for a future manned station. The island was all wrong for their needs, so they abandoned it. Then, in 1958, an American icebreaker discovered that a small volcanic eruption occurred on the island, resulting in the formation of a low-lying lava plateau.

5. The Gardner Museum Heist
On March 18, 1990, as St. Patrick’s Day festivities were winding down, two unknown thieves robbed the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and got away clean with an astounding collection of masterpieces by masters, including Rembrandt and Vermeer. The stolen pieces are valued in excess of $500 million. It was the largest art theft in history. Today, after twenty years and millions spent on investigating the heist, there has never been an arrest and the theft remains one of the most extraordinary unsolved crimes in history.

6. The Abduction of Betty and Barney Hill
Abduction reports are hard to judge: the abductees have a very active imagination, they are hoaxers, or they really were abducted by extraterrestrials. What makes the Hill story so unique is they were the very first to ever report that they had been abducted by aliens. In the many years since their report it appears their case is still the most convincing. It was the early hours of September 20, 1961; the Hills were on vacation. They were driving from Niagara Falls to their home in New Hampshire, when they sighted a strange object in the sky.

7. Who was Robin Hood?
Everyone knows the story of Robin Hood. He was a legendary rogue with a heart of gold, who stole from the rich and gave to the poor. His story has become the basis for an archetype. Books have been written about him and he’s been the subject of so-so movies released every decade or so. However, we really don’t know how the legend of Robin Hood came about or rose to such cultural importance. We don’t even know if he really ever existed.
