Matt Chatelain While on vacation, all Weissmuller wanted was some time to kill and be with archaeologists, two of his favourite activities. That’s why he accepted the invitation to participate in the Archeo Troop’s televised dig of the oldest port in Britain. He had it all planned. Days spent with historians and specialists, while disguised as Jonathan Briar, a respected archaeologist, then evenings spent roaming the countryside and nearby towns. He certainly wasn’t looking to come across vandals stealing ancient pottery shards in the middle of the night. Nor did he expect them to be big-headed giants, much harder to kill than regular people, which may explain why he decided to hunt them all down. The problem was, Weissmuller only had a couple of weeks to do the job, there were more giants than he’d originally thought, and now, they were hunting him. Meanwhile, the oblivious Archeo Troop kept insisting the pottery shards came from a lost ancient civilization. How could Weissmuller refuse to help them find it? Sure, it would place the Troop in mortal danger but he needed their expertise to figure out where the rest of the giants were hiding. Or was it too much to do in such a short time? It all came down to one question. While on vacation, should one kill more... or less? So begins a non-stop adventure that takes Weissmuller and the Archeo Troop across the Mediterranean to unravel the ancient connection between big-headed giants, Noah’s Flood, and the fabled Atlantis. This might quite possibly prove to be Weissmuller’s best vacation.
