In 1970, some huge, fossilized footprints that he found in Australia's outback so intrigued Dr. Rex Gilroy, director of the Mount York Natural History Museum at Mount Victoria, N.S.W., that he began excavations in that area. Over the years he gathered enough evidence to convince himself that a race of giants once dwelled there. Near Bathurst, Dr. Gilroy turned up some stone implements, hand axes, clubs, pounders, adzes, knives, and other tools so huge that only giants with extra large hands and strength could have made any beneficial use of them. He also uncovered some giant molars and other fossilized footprints that measured up to thirty inches in length. "The implications are," he wrote in an article detailing his archaeological finds, "that men of 12 to 20 feet in height once roamed this continent."1 (See Moroccan Find; also see, Tarrubia's report under South American Giants)
