"Spain has no record of any lost expeditions in Canada, but an old sword and shipwrecks suggest an early presence in the Okanagan." - http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/british-columbia/bc-artif...
Huh. ‎· Jennifer D.
That's a tiny sword, but I guess people weren't very big back then. (A Norwegian artist once extrapolated from Norwegian military records on average recruit height that the vikings were about 14cm. tall.) ‎· Eivind
you sure about 14? are we giants among ancient men? :D @eivind: ‎· SaeedTheGiraffe ?
It's the number I remember. I haven't checked the math :) ‎· Eivind
btw I read somewhere that the average height for ancient Egyptians was around 150cm ‎· SaeedTheGiraffe ?
@eivind: 14 or 140? I cannot imagine a real man, even an ancient one, that is 14 cm tall at all. ‎· shalapanova
Maybe misprint, 1.4 m tall? ‎· Halil
'Tis just a linear extrapolation-based joke :) ‎· Eivind
