Skeleton of a giant found in Romania.

Exposing the Secret History of Giants and the Underground Hyperborean Gallery in Romania

(Read the article on one page)

With Rosia Montana being a mining area, a number of interesting discoveries have been unearthed there over the years – one of the most interesting being a skeleton of a 10 meter (32.8 feet) tall giant which was found in 1976.

About 5,500 years ago, an underground gallery was constructed in the region by the Agathyrsi. In February 2012, a group of geologists followed the gold vein in the same place. They kept digging until they ended up at the base of the gallery. To their utter surprise, they found a gravestone which was definitely not made of common rock. The geologists took a sample, and the laboratory results revealed that the components of the tombstone included 55% 50 karat gold dust, 15% granite dust and 30% wolfram. Also, the analysis revealed that the composite rock had been made using a type of technology unknown today.

The Hyperborean Gallery

Known by the name of “The Hyperborean Gallery” or “Gallery 13”, the place of this amazing discovery is located beneath Cornea village. A number of other discoveries were made at the site in 1976. However, in the name of “security” the anthropological and archaeological discoveries were deemed too unusual and shocking for the time, so the gallery was permanently sealed.

The gravestone was not the only unusual item found inside the gallery. On it, archaeologists found a 10 meter (32.8 ft.) tall skeleton of a giant. Apparently, the giant had been buried there after his death, with his legs gathered on one side. Lacking the proper equipment necessary to analyze such a find, the skeleton was sent to Moscow. Unfortunately, nothing has been reported about the giant ever since.

As for the tombstone, a new series of research was planned to analyze it in 2012. The relic was dug up once again and measurements showed that it was six meters (19.7 feet) wide, twelve meters (39.4 feet) long and three meters (9.8 feet) tall. It weighed almost 1700 tons and contained somewhere around 900 tons of solid gold. To make a comparison, such a quantity of gold would have required over twenty years of mining work to gather. The last thing known about the gravestone is that it had been cut up into 80 smaller pieces in order to make its transportation possible. As for its destination, it is not known where it lies today.

One of the archaeologists working in Gallery 13 took a set of photos with the gravestone and sent them to a paleolinguist. The latter noticed emerald green bas-relief writing covering the entire surface of the artifact. The text had been written in three parallel rows which started in the upper left. From there, the writing descended diagonally, similar to a serpent, and formed a spiral around a wolf head. Finally, the script ended in the lower right corner. The paleolinguist speculated that the unknown writing could be Pelasgian and that the discovery with its markings and writing clearly possessed great cultural and historical value. Nevertheless, the gravestone was cut and melted. The state obtained a share of 19 pieces, 31%, as stipulated in the local gold exploitation contract.

During the excavation, the lifting of the gravestone also revealed the entrance to a pit. The four meter (13.1 feet) diameter pit had a descending spiral stairway and a milky violet light radiated from the inside. A closer inspection of the stairs made it clear that they looked as if cut into the walls of the pit by a laser and, as for the violet light, nobody could determine its source.

Curious to find the source of the light and to see what was inside, the paleolinguist descended into the pit, but nobody else proved brave enough to join him. The night passed and the man never returned from the pit.

Ultimately, the army sealed the entry to the pit, as well as the entire Gallery 13, with cement. Those present never talked about the discoveries again - as they had been made to sign confidentiality agreements, therefore what lies beyond the staircase of the pit remains a mystery.

Romanian Giant Legends

Depending on the region of Romania where the legends come from, there are different names for giants. In the Boziorul area, giants are known as “tartars” (“tartari”), for example. A number of unusually tall skeletons have been uncovered at Scaieni, in Buzaului Mountains. For instance, when locals tried to plant apple trees on a hill, they accidentally discovered humanoid skeletons of over 2.4 meters (8.2 feet) tall along with pottery fragments.


You know, I come to this site because it is one of the few sites that approaches Archaeology in a professional manner. But between Giants and Anti-matter Entities I think it's time I moved on. I'd go to Message from Eagle if I wanted woo.

Jack, I can understand that you might be put off on this topic, but there are plenty of other things on this site to read about. No one is forcing you to read, or believe in this particular subject.

That being said, there are too many stories, accounts and/or pictures from the past that point to this being factual. As the saying goes, 'History is made by those who have conquered. There seems to be a concerted effort to keep evidence of this from the publics eye. This, coupled with the lack of interest by the masses, makes it far easier to cover up, and never come to light.

Then, when you only see it come out on the History channel as a show, or on here in articles, it becomes much less credible. It is either the Museum of Natural History or the Smithsonian, (I cannot remember which) who have had the bones, and they have mysteriously disappeared. Scientists have come forward in the past, and have said as much.

I am not saying that there isn't a chance this is a false or faked story, but there is too much evidence to dismiss it completely.

He believe, he knows that is real, true, but he want to seed doubt on the minds of the people who comes to read, to investigate some of the past history of our planet, because they are curious of all those things that are being discovered and some organizations and some people want those things to be hide from the general public. Their reason? Who knows...

the answer is simple . read the biblical account,genesis 6,4.this started long ago.why does the smithsonian want to cover it up or deny them because that would mess up there evolution millions of years theory and you believe you came from a monkey.

Once you bring the bible or any mention of the sky fairy into the conversation it negates your argument, now I have a question for you,which do you think is more likely that we evolved from the apes or the sky fairy made us????

Ya, that’s almost as rediculous as “nothing” exploding without causality, and becoming time, space, and matter.

Smart people like you don’t believe in that nonsense I hope!

Hey, it could be worse, just imagine someone believing all that nonsense, then he also believed that life created it self !! No way!!

Seriously now. I don’t enjoy belittlingt people because they believe in foolish things like that, so maybe you should turn the heat down a few notches also. It’s not as thought there’s ANY real scientific fact in any of that. It’s all supposition based on personal pardigm.

There’s this fgalse narrative going around and around that all this big bang and abiogenesis has been all nicely worked out with real scientific methodology  and it’s all proven scientific fact. It is not. It’s faith based, exactly like the “sky daddy” or whatever variation you enjoy beating others with the the most.

 I mean you would have to explain how a cell could form without pre programmed, fully functioning  DNA right? And just think about that for a would need to be specifically PRE programed –  now that presents a very serious problem, obvious reasons aside – PRE programming infers specificity – PRE knowledge. 

And, in order to get Pre programmed DNA you would need a fully formed, fully functioning cell with DNA already pre programmed and operating, otherwise, no DNA!

Being sarcastic of other people’s faith doesn’t make you look any smarter.

Why can’t adults be adult in this area? Nobody has anything conclusive, and so logically that leave all possibilities, even those we feel are rediculous.

This is the reason I’ve stayed away from the debate. People can be really sarcastic, and that just doesn’t belongt in any mutually respectful, adult discussion, regardless of hoe strong anyone’s personal feelings are.


I haven’t posted here for months because of this foolishness, and I am just as guilty! I never start of with sarcasm, but unfortunatly I do sometimes react in kind, and I don’t feel good about that, and so I stay away. 

Is this what A.O. wants this potentially great forum to melt down to?




Hi Jack just read your post, I don't believe in the Big Bang Myth either I think it's even less believable than the sky fairy myth, I do however believe that there was a race of giants somewhere back in time and the reason is simple to me, if you look back at animals and plants there was clear evidence that there was giant versions of them and so why not Humans, I do tend to be sarcastic with people who jump into conversations with the sky fairy and that's because It actually amazes me that in the 21st century people still believe in it. and if you ask them about all the badness in the world it's the devil, I have asked several "Believers" why would such a loving good and holy god create a world in which for anything to live something else has to die? and got some amount of hate mail and was reported to AO admin over it. the way I look at it is this, say we are having a serious discussion about science or nature and I came out with "Oh I know it's true cause Micky Mouse told me" what would your response be to me or would you take me serious

Bronzesnake's picture

Here’s a helpful hint which you can use anytime you consider setting mickey mouse comparrisons against reality.


How many book, scientists, historians, Biblical scholars, or regular people have ever claimed “Mickey Mouse” created the universe?


It’s a pretty big waste of time using such disengenuous examples, especially ones which can be turned around and used on you!!


That’s why so many intillegent Christians become sarcastic from time to time.


 I do tend to be sarcastic with people who jump into conversations with the non existant evolutionary sky fairy, and that's because It actually amazes me that in the 21st century people still believe in it.

And if you ask them to show you all the scientific observable proof they have for their non existant evolutionary sky fairy explanation, they say foolish things such as “D’ahhh can’t you see all the different kinds of dogs? or any number of equally foolish examples.

Ihave asked several "Believers" why would such a loving good and holy god create a world in which for anything to live something else has to die?

Gee, let’s see I ask inflamatary, loaded questions of which I will never take them seriously, then people become aggrevated at me...hmmmI wonder whay that might be?


If you had have ever read God’s book you wouldn’t need to ask silly questions because you would have known that the universe and earth, all life etc, was NOT created as it presently is. As a matter of fact, it was created perfectly as were we. Then people decided they didn’t need God anymore...come to think of it, that would be people like you Michael, but I difress.


So, God told them “hey, if you think you can do a better job than me...GOD, then so be it. Get out of the perfect home I created for you ingrates and let’s see how the world fares with man in control.

How are we doing so far Michael? See how being ill informed and refusing to listen, or read God’s word leads?


Michael said – “the way I look at it is this, say we are having a serious discussion about science or nature “

Michael, when you say “serious” what you actually mean is “serious” = Things that Michael believes”

Evolutionary explanations don’t add up. That’s why more and more evpolution scientists are risking their careers and reputations, and are admitting publically that it is effectively dead. There is always going to be a last ditch effort by the few dinosaurs who have invested everything in this godless silly explanation, and would rather live in a state of denial and go down with the ship, than accept the only explanation left.


Take care Mike.

"Gee, let’s see I ask inflamatary, loaded questions of which I will never take them seriously, then people become aggrevated at me...hmmmI wonder whay that might be?" WELL done you just proved what I said, instead of answering the question you call it an inflammatory and loaded question that you will never take seriously, and as for the Mickey Mouse well that's just as believable as the sky fairy, now let me just inform you of how I reached my opinion Jack, I was an avid believer and went to worship EVERY Sunday and I did actually read the bible but I could never make any sense out of it and then when I was about twelve or thirteen both my mother and me were mown down by a driver right outside the church, now here's another question you might never have asked yourself, but it just popped up in my mind, when God made the world whose rules was he working under that stated things had to be the way they are, and if he knows everything that has been and will be just why did he put the tree in the garden if he knew what was going to happen, and finally if you believe in God and it makes you happy that's super but as for me if it doesn't make sense to me I just won't believe it.

Sorry for your awful experience, Michael.
If a rich man marries a woman and gives her everything she would ever need, it may occur to him that she only like him because of what he gave her. So he says here's a million dollars you can have but only if you leave. Then, he would know her true feelings.. And she would truly have a choice.

If you are open minded and WANT to discover the real truth, then go to and check out the other side of the discussion/argument. Then at least you can make an informed decision. Otherwise quit cutting down people and making them sound like fouls just because they don't believe what you believe.

Dear Jack,

I agree with you! Myths stem from actual occurrences, although as the stories pass from generation to generation, the myths become exaggerated. Nevertheless, there have been many discoveries/archaeological finds that do get "swept under the rug", so to speak. What interests me the most is the fact that someone would try to hide truth rather than confirm what most people already believe.

Don, here is a book that will document hundreds of excavated giant skeletons in the USA.Anyone seriously trying to understand this book cannot deny the existence of Giants world wide. To deny the facts even the documentation in this book would be a sign of total disregard for facts over ones stubborn beliefs.

I'm very sad to tell you that there is no evidence. The picture is fake, the quotes are fantasy. The persons cited there never existed. I'm impressed by your trust in this story. It is pure fairy tale and for Romanians it is just funny. I have worked for many years with archaeologists in that place.

In light of voluminous evidence of larger than average humans from all over the world, I am afraid that I don't really understand how a topic like this can be so far outside of someone's comfort zone that they are motivated to formulate a disparaging post in response.

I salute AO on their very even-handed examinations of archaeological discoveries which do not fit into the dreary little world of mainstream dogma.


It's difficult, perhaps impossible, for some people to accept the truth when it comes to giant skeletons. A great example is the unexplainable existence of DNA. It's statistically impossible for DNA to have randomly evolved over 13.7 billion years - the current estimate of the age of the Universe. Frick himself admitted that it was an impossibility. But to accept that fact would overturn science's evolutionary timescale. How therefore to resolve this without admitting to an intelligent creator?

Scientists have come up with the ludicrous idea of panspermia! For them, it's easier to believe that aliens designed DNA and somehow deposited on Earth than it is to accept the alternative. Jack Dunfey is one of those people who doesn't dare abandon the belief of the herd of sheep that he belongs to.

Paul in Romans connects observing Creation, which all people see, as revealing God’s unseen character—the all-powerful Deity. Cf. Old Testament parallel to these verses is Psalm 19:1-6. (A cosmic code which nobody can erase!) Also, Psalm 8:1-4 and Psalm 148.
Paul’s conclusion to this description of natural revelation is important—all men are without excuse. The witness to God in nature is so clear and so constant that ignoring it is indefensible. Their condemnation is based not on their rejecting Christ of whom they have not heard, but on their sinning against the light they do have.
It is significant that our society militantly insists on teaching our young people bad science to perpetuate the myth of spontaneous biogenesis, etc., which is the basis of our philosophy, psychology, political theories, and our culture.

No one claims that DNA has evolved over 13+ billion years. That is when the earth itself came into being. Life didn't appear until a little over 4 billion years ago.

Who says? Prove it!!

Many things are unexplained/unexplainable. That doesn't automatically mean by default that a magic invisible, all powerful spirit in the sky made them, that is Bronze Age thinking. There is more real evidence for aliens than there is for the Supergod. Humans have a great deal of trouble admitting to themselves, and saying, 'We don't know', especially 'educated' folks. If the DNA researchers are correct that our DNA has 'knowledge switches', and correct when they say some of them are "turned off", we don't know, and can't now. What we do know is that we don't know everything about DNA yet, so some of what we know now, may change. What I can say in favor of the scientific discipline is that they continue the pursuit of knowledge, unlike those who rest upon the unfounded claims of religion. As for my 60 some years of trying to learn, I have learned that the more I find out, the more I find out which I don't know. It seems that for every question I find an answer for, four or more questions pop up that need to be answered. Truth is a word I have necessarily eliminated from my vocabulary. Learning how to examine evidence has been a huge boon in advancing knowledge.

No not easier just more logical, and before you cast me into hell let me ask you a question, what kind of "all merciful" god would create a universe where in order for something to live something else has to die??

Thank You

I gotta say ... someone has a vivid imagination. Extraordinary beliefs require extraordinary proofs. There is, as always on this topic, absolutely no verifiable information in this article. If you want to be taken seriously (at least by me) produce some hard evidence.

Tsurugi's picture

Yeah? Who decides what is "extraordinary"?

We live within a universe that is in excess of 14,000,000,000 years old, on a planet that is about 4,000,000,000 years old, in a biosphere that has existed for up to 2,000,000,000 years; modern humans have been around for perhaps 250,000 years, though only 8,000 years of that is recorded history. Modern science has been around for 400 years or so, and current scientists have been here for 80-100 years tops, more like 40, on average.

So when they say "extraordinary", they base that on their experience of roughly %0.00032 of the sum total of humanity's period of existence, and about %0.00000004 of the timespan of life on earth.

A bit lacking in the credibility department in terms of being able to define what is or is not "extraordinary", don't you think?

Why does most people think that we "evolved", why is everything billions of years old? After all, Darwins theory of evolution was just THEORY!
I was taught that in school along with the creation. There is older books than Darwins explaining this.

Bronzesnake's picture

You ask a valid question Dave. Unfortunatly, most Americans have been indoctrinated in school by over zealous teachers/professors who blurred the lines of fact, and fiction in teaching the big bang, as well as the neo Darwinian theory as though hypothesis were “theory” and as though “theiry” was “scientific fact” Fortunatly, more and more scientists are finally admitting the entire theory, with cosmic evolution,  and biological evolution is based on nothing more than “just so stoties” and “trade secrets” such as a complete lack of any graduated transitionals in the fossil record.


Evolution scientists are abandoning shit at an alarming rate. Why?

okay you creationist answer me this, you continuously rubbish other peoples thought's and ideas as "Just Theories" okay well show me YOUR actual proof the sky fairy exists!

Tsurugi's picture

I agree with your criticisms re: Darwinism, age of the Universe, etc., in the sense that we really don't know how old the Universe is, and the best estimates are based on a lot of assumptions that may not be true.

What I was attempting to illustrate was that it is their own preferred model of the Universe which implies that they can't possibly know what is or is not "likely".

The Bible plainly speaks of a race of people who were giants, the Philistines, in the recounting of David, in his youth, slaying Goliath in I Samuel chapter 17. Goliath's height is listed as "six cubits and a span". The measurement of a cubit is described as the distance from the elbow to the fingertips. Historically, this varied between different groups of people, from the Hebrew measurement of 17.45", to the Babylonians at 18.8", and the Egyptian at 20.6". The commonly accepted length today is 18". The length of a span is from the tip of the thumb to the tip of the little finger when the hand is outstretched, commonly accepted as 9".
Thus, Goliath would have been between 9.5' and 11' in height, depending upon which measurement was used for a cubit. Regardless of which was used, Goliath qualified as a giant person.
There are many historical and Biblical references to exceptionally tall peoples of ancient times, so why is there such a hullabaloo and/or disbelief over finding skeletons of "giants" from ancient times?
Do some research and discover where Romania fits into the historic landscape tapestry of ancient times, and where the giants of old are said to have resided.
On another point in the article: It is interesting to read the references about the bones "disappearing" after having been discovered, dug up and removed, seen by many, some bones being displayed, and their authenticity relatively uncontested?
Now, that is the mystery to me.

The bible is just the collected myths and legends of the desert cultures, sure some of it may also be based on actual events too - an oral history that was written down. It's really no different than Celtic or Norse myths and legends etc etc

There is one main difference, but no use mentioning Him, I don't expect. I would be curious to know if you have in fact read the Bible, and if you have, did you read it with an open mind, and were you open to the Divine Presence? The evidence of a Creator is all around. The belief does not require evidence. Not everything is Empirical. Faith, for example. Everyone has Faith in something. What is your Ultimate Concern. Mine is my Relationship with God and being open to the Divine Presence in my life. To dismiss the possibility so cavalierly is, it seems to me, ShortSighted.

Don't start preaching here Reverend, you and your beliefs are no different than any ancient Celt and his faith in Crom Dubh the father God or his belief in the tales of the Tuatha De Dannan or any Viking and his belief in Odin his father God and Valhalla where he goes after he dies. It's exactly the same thing. The bible is full of tales and beliefs that are mirrored in cultures far older than Judaism or Christianity, cultures and belief systems that you would no doubt dismiss as pagan.

The Dannan were real, an earlier people of Ireland and supposedly went underground as they were cheated out of their lands with the agreement they made with the invaders...they may have even fled to the Americas after they were defeated in battle. They may have also been of the peoples that gave rise to our later ideas of 'elves'. The bible does mention that the elder Gods, were the fallen 'angels, and that these are what we call demons today. Powers and principalities. Some may still be physically alive and not just spirit entities.

thank you, well said.

The Bible is not a book of myth and no matter how much you and your own ministers continue preaching the evolutionary fairy tales, they will never be anythng other than that.

In your world, it happened long ago and far away kids, you just ave to believe e, because I reference “real” scientists” who taught me that evolution happenes so slowly that we can’t actually observe it. Or, if you’re of the P.E. faith, change happened so fast we can’t see it. Amen.

Yeah it is, it's a book of myths, legends and semi historical tales, ideas and philosophies. It's the collected tales and beliefs of the people who wrote it. A lot of it has it's origins in ancient Sumer and Egypt. There are equivalent Gaelic collections for example, full of the same sorts of moral tales, genealogies, adages, blessings, histories both real and semi legendary etc etc. It's just that People don't take them as gospel so to speak. You and your fundamentalist, medieval and closed mindset Bronzesnake, would have your nearest equivalent these days in the backward Muslims of places like Afghanistan. I know you're going to reply to this with some more hocus pocus, mumbo jumbo, So I don't know why I'm bothering really. Though I do understand now why a more advanced alien civilisation would be unwilling to engage us humans directly until we had grown up a bit and embraced rational thought.

Quote – A lot of it has it's origins in ancient Sumer and Egypt.”

Ya, I’ve heard all that baloney many times before, and it might fly with a majority of people, even Christians, who have not researched for themselves.

I have been researching this stuff for decades,a nd that will not fly with me.

Give me specofocs, and i’ll demolish anything you think you have anytime.

The days where you non believers can fake out the Christians are pretty mcuh over. We’re educated, we’ve done the YEARS of study and we know THE TRUTH. Those old tactics just won’t work anymore.

Show me specfics. any fool can blow-hard in generalities.

As for the Bible being a collectioin of myths, it would be best to pay attention to those 'myths', which early archaeologists did and were able to discover previoiusly unknown cities because they did, Troy being one of their major finds. The bible is what survived, coming down to us though the ages, and origionating with the Sumerians, those who origionally settled the land after leaving Eden. Nowdays, with the old cuniform tablets being unearthed and translated, we can flesh out the pre-flood information that is so summarized and scanty in the Bible, and it makes for very interesting reading indeed.

For future discoveries, it is vital that even the most improbable tales not be thrown out but compaired with others, and the formerly sealed up underground ways reopened. With modern scanning technology more can be accomplished that in the past. OH, by the way, South African diamond and gold miners occasionaly run into extremely ancient mine tunnels and vent shafts...when they do, they do not explore them but seal them up.
Theres a reason for one wants to encounter and disturb possible underground inhabitants. Supposedly not just American Indians but also some miners / explorers have, and for the most part, keep details of the enterence locations to themselves.

goliath had 4 brothers.... thats why david picked five stones.... also later davids heros slew several other giants in the canaan valley.some of these were called kings and some had 6 fingers and toes and double rows of teeth.

Correct. One can visit South America and see giant skeletons the Smithsonian never got their fingers on. There are 150 years of numerous newspaper articles documenting the many discoveries of giant skeletons.... all over the USA. Science has always tried to stand against the Bible and an almighty creator. Discoveries are hidden, proof is hidden, scientific credentials lost when those few dare to speak the truth. The Rothschilds and their NWO luciferian agenda cannot come to fruition if the Bible is proven to be true. Hence the cabal controls it all for they write the rules and control the money. Sadly they try to keep us in their false matrix of lies and absurdities.

Skeletons that have disappeared, having been sealed up for "security" purposes;
Gold tombstones that disappeared into then-Soviet Russia and never resurfaced;
Dodgy camera angles that skew perspective...

Good grief, AO, you'll be telling us that Dark Matter really exists next!

OK if you don’t like this specific evidence, there is loads of real, observable, touchable elongated skulls, with a mix of human and unknown genetic materials, start your new life away from evolution magic tales, and get into the real evidence that you can actually study here and now.


You can’t deny the Exodus any longer, unless you squeeze your eyes,a nd ears shut really tightly, and sing a happy song to drown out truth.

The evidence is piling up, and it’s not the kind that starts out with “long ago and far away kids”

Ok, so we know humanoids have been living on this planet for quite a while.
Even more than 10k years ago.

We also know that in ancient times, the living animals and plants were bigger than they are now (Megafauna).
Now, we also acknowledge humanoids as a animal species.
So it is very likely possible that giant humanoids once roamed this planet, being part of the Megafauna of old.

The thing that really grinds my gears though, is that it seems like most of these findings are 'swept under the rug' with quite a hurry.
I ask why? Why is it so horrible for as laymen to learn about exinct giant humanoids?
I mean.. we also learned about giant Salamanders and Gecko's (read: dinosaurs).
Nobody got freaked out by that! We even have a few blockbuster movies with Dino's as the lead role!

It really just grinds my gears.

In the first part of this article it states that gold of 50 karat was found in the tombstone. I am a jeweler. There is no such thing as 50 karat gold. The highest nomenclature used is 24 karat and that is a fact. It means that 24 out of 24 karats are gold and this has been the standard for pure gold for hundreds of years...possibly thousands. There is no such thing as more than pure! Pure gold is in fact 24 karat gold. For example, 14 K or 14 karat gold is 14/24ths pure and 18K means 18/24ths pure or 75% pure if you do the arithmetic.

When an article starts off like this I automatically place tongue in cheek. There are a couple other anomalies about the article that sent red flags up. I'm not saying taller than 6 ft. humans never existed, the Watusi tribe n Africa has many who are over 7ft tall for example. And I'm not saying that even taller humans haven't roamed this planet either...most likely they did, but proof is proof and these skeletons never seem to be actually proven or in a museum. I don't think it is some sort of conspiracy either... I only ask, where are they NOW?

Bronzesnake's picture

I noticed that also, but it appears to be a typo – look again –

“The geologists took a sample, and the laboratory results revealed that the components of the tombstone included 55% 50 karat gold dust, 15% granite dust and 30% wolfram. “


I’m guessing the “50” was a mistake. The rest of the paragraph describes some unknown technology to produce the composite.

“Also, the analysis revealed that the composite rock had been made using a type of technology unknown today.”

I’m no expert, so I will refer back to you sir. Does that explanation make sense? Thank you for the post.



romania is freaky mysterious in my book. Lol !!

over 200% pure? 24 is as high as it gets. what else is BS

The picture with the dude next to the skeleton is obviously photoshopped. Look at the edges of the dude.
Those have been altered by the 'smudge' tool from PS.

Shame. Started reading this thinking it would be one of those articles connecting mythology to archaeology but found the giant bones story yet more compelling. Then, enter the part about closing down a gallery because its contents are "shocking", and then the government throws preservation out the window to melt down gold for profit, blahblah... How is it that one can spend considerable time researching a subject without the discerning eye for pseudoarchaeology, or perhaps the author knows it's BS but is more interested in having fun than making an academic contribution? Either way, I wasted my time. Wish the following references had been listed before the introductory paragraph:
“Supernatural in the Land of Count Dracula”
“Dictionary of Mysteries”

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
