Excerpt from Folklore

Records of Middlesex - the county we are now meeting in - there is abundant evidence of the unadulterated beliefs Of the people in the power Of magical arts to do I don't know what, and this is what we want got ready for us in order that we may know who and what the people are and were whose folk-lore we are putting under the microscope who, for instance, were the Cangick giants, a people who by tradition are said to have inhabited a certain district of Somersetshire, and of whom some measurements have been taken which would not, I am afraid, satisfy the scientific requirements Of modern craniologists - the top of the skull Of one of this giant race was said to have been 1 inch thick, and one Of his teeth was 3 inches long above the roots, 3} inches round, and weighed ounces. But these measurements are the work of a zealous antiquary of two centuries ago: the tradition is much Older and far more correct.
