Abstract

The giants, in Slovenian called the Ajdi, are believed to be the oldest inhabitants of the Earth. The word Ajd has drawn attention up till now just for its possible indication of the archaeological sites. It is taken for a widely spread motif in folkloristics. The author includes the narratives about the continuity, cohabitation and appearance of the Ajdi from the prehistoric and Roman settlement on Ajdovščina above Rodik in the context of the specific area and time. The paper considers the possibilities of the historical truth of the studied oral tradition, which due to its uncommonness and connection to the specific place seems possible.
