Is there any way of giving anonymous users full control within a site collection?

Manage permission policy for anonymous users
You can enable or disable anonymous access for a Web application. If you enable anonymous access for a Web application, site administrators can then grant or deny anonymous access at the site collection, site, or item level. If anonymous access is disabled for a Web application, no sites within that Web application can be accessed by anonymous users.

The following permission policies can be specified for anonymous users:

1.None: No policy is specified. This setting gives anonymous users the same default permissions available to NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users and All Authenticated Users.

Add NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users and All Authenticated Users to full control or site collection adminitrators
