Last week we heard the news that the Giant of Hamilton will be returning to our town after being on display in Texas for the past 15 years.
The giant skeleton which was uncovered at Brackenhill Farm back in 2003 is to be put on display at the Low Parks Museum this summer and it is expected to attract large numbers of people from all over the UK.
It is thought that the term ‘do you think that you’re a big man’ originates from the finding of the Hamilton Giant.
The Giant of Brackenhill is thought to be a distinct breed of ‘Big Man’ who lived in Hamilton 3,000 years ago! There are still to this day descendants who claim to be ‘A Big Man’ that live in Hamilton, however, this turned out to be just a myth.
