When Were There Giants?

Have there ever been giants? News stories speak of whether there have been giants in the past. Prof. Berger has often been at the centre of this discussion based on his studies of hominid fossils from the Late Middle Pleistocene. In this lecture, Prof. Berger uses original fossils to explore the question “Is there any real fossil evidence for there having been giant humans in the past?”, and if so, why do some scientists get so agitated by this discussion?
