This is the name of a hill figure made of chalk and carved into the hills of Sussex in England from the 16th or 17th century. Legend tells that there were two Giants from the hills of Windover and Firls. The two Giants of these mountains would throw rocks at each other in a mortal combat. Eventually one Giant was struck down and where he lay and outline was made. The dents and large flint rocks of the Hills are said to be the markings of the rocks that were thrown.
