The Lost city of the Giants

Have explorers in Ecuador found ‘Lost City of Giants'?

(Read the article on one page)

Last year, a team of explorers and researchers discovered what they believed to be an ancient pyramid complex in a remote area of the Ecuador Amazonian jungle, one not known to the general public internationally or even within the country.  Bruce Fenton, author and researcher, has completed an analysis of the findings , and believes the complex may be the ‘Lost City of the Giants’.

At the discovered site there is one extremely large pyramidal type structure of approximately 80 metres square base and 80 metres height, with steeply inclined walls. This structure is made up of irregular shaped large cut stone blocks, each currently calculated to be approximately 2 tonnes in weight; many hundreds of such blocks make up the walls of the building.

The top appears to be a flat area suspected to have been a platform used by priests in either ceremonies or possibly sacrifices. Scattered around the area are a great many artefacts of stone and pottery. Many of these objects appear to be stone tools that could have been used either in mining or refining some kind of metal ore. The style of the buildings and the objects found all suggest an unknown pre-Inca culture. However, further investigation is needed to establish the facts, which Fenton and a team plan to conduct in the near future.

Amongst these tools are some that would be extremely difficult for a normal size human being to use in any practical fashion, which has led Fenton to suspect that this is one of the legendary lost cities of the giants, well known in local Ecuadorian legends about the Amazonian area.  Such places generate great fear among the members of today’s jungle tribes as they are believed to be protected either by spirit guardians or by beings not of this world.

Local legends pertain to giant humans who lived in cities that have become forgotten in the pages of history. In fact bones of giant people have been found in caves in the area – as well as in other parts of Ecuador. This particular region was said to be a great meeting place of the tribes, in fact tribes from as far away as Brazil travelled to this location due to beliefs about its long standing importance and strong energetic vibration.

The team has so far identified several large hills near to the validated pyramid structure, each of them equal size to the supposed pyramid. It is possible that each of these hills is a pyramid yet to be uncovered. This would make for a very significant sized city and pyramid complex.

An international team of experts of ancient megalithic sites and pyramid technologies are planning further expeditions to the site to place it accurately on a map and to produce a one hour documentary to record the amazing features of this intriguing site.

this should be world wide breaking news...maybe not the headline story since the olympics are going on, but this is amazing and people deserve to know about it!!

love, light and blessings


All over the Americas, giant sized skeletons have been found..... Unfortunately, most have disappeared into the cavernous regions of the Smithsonian, never to be seen or heard from again. It would be nice to have one for examination coming from this site.
