While in Israel, we visited a region where there are giant nephilim cave dwellings. They were monster houses underground, and like an American teepee, they had openings at the top for ventilation.
This looks like where we were: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beit_Guvrin_National_Park
I remembers stories about Tamar and Judah now - things we listened to for our travel entertainment. See, those stories are important.
(There were two sets of caves we visited. One was for nephilim. Another set was for a society - it was maybe Greek, based on my memory. Anyway, there was a town underground. When I tease this apart, I can fix this all up. I will feature that cave set in another post.
For Calgarians, in the article, notice the Bell Caves. You know how our downtown buildings are all attached with Plus 15s. These caves had underground passageways connecting them all. This is a way to avoid the matters of sun, desert, and lack of water. In these caves, there were in some places, not that I saw that at this Bell Cave, but there were cisterns which were set up to collect water from rain. It is pretty amazing to see. I would not want to get lost underground. That would be awful. These are underground cities.)
Here's a wiki on the Anakim: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anakim
And yes, men would feel like grasshoppers in their sight, or standing by them. God has to help defeat such enemies. This is who Joshua fought.

This is one room. What you have is 6-8 of these large rooms interconnected underground.
