This was once a great being of immense sized discovered by the villagers of Sicily. The Italian author Boccaccio (1313 - 1375) reported that while digging for the foundations of a building, a sealed cave was discovered. When the labourers finally broke in after much effort, they found the corpse of a great Giant propped up on a seat by a long staff the size of a ship’s mast. Many people were called and gathered to see it. The body did not last long though, as it crumbled into dust when touched. All that remained was three teeth, part of its skull and a thigh bone. The metal core of the staff was used by the mathematicians at that time to calculate the size of the Giant. They estimated that he was 300ft tall.
