An enormous penis-shaped,180-foot-tall figure, the Cairn Abbas Giant, was believed to have been built in the 10th century. Archaeologists have now discovered the exact time of its construction. Experts said the figure was created in Saxon times, which dates from AD 700 to AD 1110.
Scientists have said that it is very likely that the nude photo was taken in AD 908. Archaeologist Michael Allen said: “All archaeologists, including me, misunderstood.” The revelation surprised many archaeologists who believed that the figure is very old and possibly from the historical period of Prague. Now archaeologists and historians are trying to find out who created this figure and why.
While the Cerne Giant’s size makes him very noticeable from afar, this figurine is known around the world for its most distinguishable erect penis, which measures 26 feet in length. Many experts say that this demonic figure is that of the demigod Hercules and some others say it is a symbol of the ability to promote fertility, according to the BBC.
Britain’s National Trust says the Anglo-Saxon peoples who settled in Britain came from northern Germany and southern Scandinavia. These people were made up of three powerful castes, the Angles, the Saxons, and the Jutes.
