Giants have been part of folklore, religious stories, creation myths, and popular culture since the beginning of recorded history – and probably before then. Some are familiar figures from previous times, such as Goliath or the evil giant from Jack and the Beanstalk. Others are more recent – for example, Paul Bunyan or Harry Potter’s friend Hagrid. In all cases, these unusual creatures have captured people’s imaginations for thousands of years.
