image for Skeleton baffles archaeologists

More developments in the story of the "longest dwarf" skeleton unearthed in County Mayo, Ireland, last week; Scientists are now saying that the 6-foot long man is not necessarily the tallest dwarf ever found - he may be the remains of the shortest giant!

Archaeologists from the University of Wicklow have been studying the remains, called by Head of Archaeology Prof. Mick O'Bryan "The most exciting discovery this century in Ireland, to be sure".

The man is believed to have been in his early 30's when he died about 1,200 years ago. Ireland has many tales from that period about races of Giants and Dwarves.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
