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.


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??

Hi Michael,

You are absolutely right. I'm not sure whether or not you really want to know the answer, but I can at least try and give a response. I hope and ask that you please not belittle, tease, or mock me and I will do my best to have the same respect for your beliefs. We all disagree on some things, whether it be minor or major or 1 or many things. None of us have all the answers and that is likely something that will never be the case. There are things in this world that confound us and don't seem logical, even in the world of science. For example quantum entanglement is not fully understood, and may never be, but it nonetheless makes no natural logical sense, even if we can explain it with probabilistic mathematics and physics. However, we must not automatically assume that because one believes in God that they are ridiculous and illogical. The same things that satisfy you and are evidence for you, may not be the same for someone else. This makes us different no doubt, but no less or more logical.

(excuse my ignorance, but I will speak with the assumption that He is real, since that is what I believe, however I respect your belief in that He is not to you).
When it comes to your question here, there are many things to consider, but one must first understand that God is not simply "all merciful". God is also "the judge of all the earth", "the king of all", etc. Mercy can be defined as being lenient when the situation calls for something stronger. For example if one is convicted of a crime, the law may call for you to go to jail for 10 years, but if the judge lowers that to 10 months, he was being merciful. When God created the universe, He created it perfectly. It was not created in such a way that someone has to die for someone else to live, nor does it operate that way even after the imperfection was introduced into the world. Since God is infinite and eternal, any offense to him if judged fairly would require an infinite punishment. Consider this, if someone steals from you, the fairest punishment would be for them to either 1)return what they took in the same condition as when it left, or 2)buy another item just like it, or 3)pay the cost of the item. Since every aspect of God is infinite in extent, then the fairest judgment for an offense to Him is also infinite in extent. This is why when one offends God they are required to die. However, God didn't want things to just end that way, so He showed mercy and provided a way for people to not have to face that punishment, but still fulfilling his requirement of justice. This is reason for Christ and why God is considered merciful. God requires justice, because He is the judge and He can't be unfair, but He is also loving and wants to prevent death from being the end of it concerning people, so He was merciful and found a way to fulfill both justice and love, by taking the punishment on Himself, for only God can take God's punishment and still be around. Now the only requirement is accepting the payment He offered for you, just as if someone wants to free you from jail, you have to accept it otherwise you can tell them you don't want it and to get lost and you stay in jail. The salvation that Christ offers frees us from the infinite consequence that death originally would have had. This is why God is considered to be merciful. Let me know if that answers your question and if not, let me know what it is you do not understand and I will try my best to answer.

Hi Humbleanswers,
I will not belittle you in this reply but you didn't get what I was saying in my comment, I wasn't just talking about mankind and crime I was talking about everything on the planet. and see if you can answer this question too when "god" created the universe whose rules was he/she/it working under, who said things have to be the way they are and when I said "more logical" what I ment was if it doesn't make sense to me I just won't believe it oh and I don't believe in the "big bang" either.

Hi Michael,
Thanks for your respect. I am sorry I misunderstood your question, i'll try again to explain as best I can. Again I don't have all the answers, as none of us do. When it comes to creating the universe, God created the universe in accordance with His design, His rules, and His Authority. If no one else is around, and He is all there is, then by default He is the one who has all authority and therefore He makes the rules. Many believe that evil is doing what we conceive as doing wrong or hurtful to another person, but in fact evil is not being in agreement with God. He has decided what is right and anything against that is wrong. Our very conception of right and wrong comes from God. Without there being an ultimate authority on right and wrong, where does our idea come from? Would it come from society, ourselves, nature? In any of these cases what would it matter whether what is right or wrong since it is all based on opinions of people and those ideas would end when they die. If there is no absolute for right and wrong, then all we should do is obey the law to keep your freedom and nothing else matters. But if there is an absolute for right and wrong it has to come from an absolute opinion, an absolute authority. Just imagine, if you created a program or game, let's say a first person shooter....whose rules is the game working under?...It is working under the rules of its creator. The same would go for the universe.

Regarding why things on the planet seem to be haywire or out of whack, it goes back to the beginning when sin and death first entered the world. As I said in my previous comments, God created the universe to be infinite in time, life to last forever, and all things to continue to exist perfectly for eternity. However, when humans brought evil into the creation, corruption of the original began to occur since perfection was now imperfect. Now God had a few choices on how to deal this state of creation. He could have 1)removed the evil (the people and any other corrupted thing), 2)He could've let it continue as it was (lasting forever with no death, but corrupted forever), or 3) He could've tried to save both the creation and the one who caused the evil by allowing the state to be temporary for both and then making them anew. Consider this, if you have a child and they do something wrong, would it be better to avoid discipline and allow them to think it's ok to continue the behavior or correct them and give them an opportunity to change the behavior. God chose the latter so that creation wouldn't remain corrupted forever. I hope that answers your question, but if not again, just let me know and I'll respond as best as I can. I understand you don't believe the big bang, but there are things that we observer experimentally with our eyes and we still don't understand it, it is not a matter of belief, but just lacks explanation. Quantum entanglement is one example, but I'm sure there is more. If you don't mind, I'm curious about your belief set as well, what do you believe about how things were created, where life comes from, and what is the most logical concerning the ways things are in the world?

Human Origins

Celtic Creation Myth – Eiocha and the one tree.
Creation myths are like bubbles of time, and when you pop one, stories of how prehistoric cultures interacted with each other, and nature, are found. Celtic mythology, more so than most folkloric systems, offers a perspective on how people interacted with the land and sea during different seasons of the year.

Ancient Technology
