Long ago in the ancient past, real giants once roamed the African plains, Indonesian jungles, and hills of France. Men grew upwards of 7, 8, 9 even 11 feet high and wielded crude stone tools. A gigantic Ape, the King Kong of the prehistoric world, raised his head 10 to 12 feet above the ground and weighed as much as four modern Gorillas.

The fossils of these giants have been studied for the past 50 – 100 years, and height estimates have been published by anthropologists. The remains of these giants are fragmentary, as fossil bones are extremely rare, making the height estimates approximate.
