The skull is one of the largest ever discovered

Archaeologists have uncovered the skeleton of a medieval GIANTESS – a woman seven foot two inches tall.

The mysterious 12th century remains were discovered buried close to a church on an island called Ostrów Lednicki in Poland.

At more than two metres tall (215.5cm) – she also had one of the largest EVER skulls to be dug up.

A giant is classified as someone who has not just abnormally tall height but also greater girth.

The condition – which was first diagnosed in the 19th century – is usually first noticed in children and is caused by a non-cancerous tumor on the pituitary gland that creates too much growth hormone.

Researchers analysing what’s left of the woman’s skeleton claim she lived a short life full of traumatic injuries and disease.

The giantess suffered with acromegaly – a rare condition involving overproduction of growth hormone from the pituitary gland that makes the bones of the head particularly large.

Her spine also showed evidence of degenerative joint disease – probably as a result of her immense height and body weight.
