A final resting place for giants has been uncovered in China. Britain's "Mirror" newspaper reports scientists working on a dig in eastern China found unusually tall and powerful men buried 5,000 years ago. Some of the men buried in plots were between 5 feet, 11 inches to 6 feet, 3 inches tall. Such heights are not unusually tall by today's standards. But, the men would have seemed like giants in China 5,000 years ago.
Archaeologists believe the people who lived in the village enjoyed a rich and plentiful diet which contributed to their stature.
