The Giant of Dodman Point, Cornwall

The Giant of Dodman Point, Cornwall

The anonymous giant of Dodman Point was said to have built and lived in the prehistoric fort that crowns the summit of the hill. He was a real terror, stealing livestock and crops to satisfy his awesome appetite. One day he fell ill and sent for a doctor from Goran. Why the giant decided to trust a human doctor is unclear, but he was obviously unwise to do so. The doctor prescribed bleeding as a cure and used a sinkhole as a basin. When the giant was weak from loss of blood, the good doctor pushed him into the sea to drown.
