CHALK GIANT OF CERNE ABBAS

CHALK GIANT OF CERNE ABBAS

Dorset has one of Britain's largest and strangest landmarks in the Giant on the Downs above the village of Cerne Abbas. The figure is 180 feet long and carved out of the turf with more skill than was shown by the makers of the Long Man. Authorities assign its making to the Bronze Age, and if this is so it must be about 4,000 years old.
