So, the Olmec had colossal heads? (Who are the Olmec anyway!)
The Olmecs lived along the Gulf of Mexico more than 3000 years ago. One of the things they are most famous for is their colossal heads. No, it's not the Olmec who had enormous heads! They made these huge heads out of rock! It's quite a mystery how they managed to get them to the sites where some remain to this day, and really why they made them at all. In any case, they are amazing, a sight worth seeing, and yet another thing to marvel at in an ancient civilization.
