"Giants" (Heidelberg man)
I'd like to see some verification that Homo heildelbergenis was a "giant". All the material I've seen provides an average height of ~6', hardly a giant.

Re: "giants"?
Heidelbergs are "Giants" in the sense that they are far taller than other fossil humans
Not entirely true. While I dislke using Wiki (I prefer using the primary sources) it gives an average height of 5'10" for Homo erectus, an average height of 6' for Homo ergaster, and for Homo antecessor a range of 5'6"-6'. So while they are taller than Homo habilis and Homo neanderthalensis (whose short limbs and large core were likely an adaptation to a cold climate) their height is not unusual in relation to their closer relatives.
