I seem to recall a series of children's novels about a character called Stig of the Dump, a caveboy living on a modern day (this was in the 60s) rubbish dump. I think some of them were televised.

Weard indeed

> Stig of the Dump

No way, it reminded me of that book too, Bingley. Think I've still got it somewhere. Quite good as I remember. I didn't know there was a series.
A while back I translated an article about a young girl called Momo, who lived in and around the ruins of an amphitheatre in much the same way as our ol' Stig did.

Vladivostok = Guardian of the East, if memory and some dictionary or other serve.
