Many cultures around the world, such as the ancient Mesoamericans and classical Greeks, told stories of giants, describing them as a flesh-and-blood race who lived and died–and whose bones could be found in the ground where they were buried long ago.

Basque King of Calabasas

The Basques have inhabited the southwestern part of Europe since long before Indo-European people arrived in the region, around 5,000 years ago. They have a legend that they originally came from a sunken archipelago of seven islands in the Atlantic, from which their sea-faring ancestors arrived in the Bay of Biscay.

The Basque Country is generally described as the area encompassing “seven provinces” in a region that stretches between modern-day northern Spain and southern France, with a unique culture, language, and many traditions that differ greatly from their Spanish and French neighbors.

Author and anthropologist Robert Sepehr visits the gorillas at the Los Angeles Zoo as a prelude for his discussion of human evolution.
