The Cerne Giant

The famous club-waving figure of the Cerne Giant stands on a chalk hillside in the heart of Dorset. The Giant is a paradox; a secretive exposer, famous for his brash nudity, yet surrounded by mystery. How long has he been with us ?: Who is he ? When and why was he made ? By whom ? The final answers to these questions are to be found in this lively and comprehensive account, which sets the Giant's biography firmly into its natural context, the history of Dorset. Full of drawings, sketches and photographs.
