A 6' 2" skeleton in this area would be considered large but, a 'giant?'

On the other hand, there is a New Zealand archaeologist who claims to have found ancient Celtic structures on NZ.

Measuring 1.9 m, the body is unusually large considering its age and origin.

Well, its 3,000 a year old.

"These cowboy archaeologists, a bit like parachute journalists, are allowed such field trips but by law, if they were find something as significant as a skeleton, especially of the suspected period of existence, the Museum must be informed," the senior official said.

This official sounds like a snot, but I like the term, "parachute journalist."

I don't know what it means, but I like it.

which includes a skull bearing strange holes drilled into its cheekbones,...

Are they sure it's not Jimmy Hoffa?

"These cowboy archaeologists,..

As a former "cowboy" during my summers, and still a horse owner, "Ah don't thank ah like the sound o' them association o' words, Pardner!" If one has ever been around a real "cowboy", they are very competent in many things. More so than many professionals these days, and more honest.

I've been to Fiji and lots of the men and some of the women were 6'2. Why are they calling this a giant?

Heard Steve Quayle talk about this on Coast-to-Coast last night, heard they had skeletons, and one caller said they saw one in Mexico at a auto parts "junk yard", like 12 feet tall, grunted, and liked coca-cola.

Trip out!
