Skeleton of a giant found in Romania.

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


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.

Knowing the local legends, people from the area immediately thought about the tartars. One of these legends even claims that the mountain formation known as the “Pillars of Tainita” (“Stalpii Tainitei”) had actually been built by these giants of old. In the past, the giants were also credited for building two large underground halls somewhere beneath the mountain.

The strange formation which can be seen up on Tainita Mountain resembles a set of stone chairs. As they are found at high altitude and in a highly inaccessible area, locals claim that tartars built the chairs to sit on when they wanted to gather for council.

Another legend from Hateg Country (“Tara Hategului”), tells the tale of two giantesses who built two cities: one in Deva and the other on the peak of the Severed Mountain (“Muntele Retezat”) respectively. Upon the end of the construction, when the giantess from Deva beheld her rival’s city and saw it had turned out more beautiful, she became envious. In a moment of rage, she threw a plough towards the mountain citadel - destroying it and severing the top of the mountain at the same time. In this way, the mountain earned its name, being known ever since as the Severed Mountain.

In regions such as Teleorman, Giurgiu, and southern Muntenia, giants are known as “jidovs” (“jidovi”). A local legend speaks about a hero going by the name of Novac who fought a jidov. Once the giant was defeated, he ran away to save his life, but in his flight he left a mark on the ground. The area has been called “Brazda lui Novac” ever since. In the region there are also other formations called “maguri” by locals who believe that these have been built by giants.

Giant Discoveries in Romania

A number of archaeological discoveries have been made in Giurgiu. For example, it was found that in Argedava, King Burebista had his first city (before he unified the Dacian tribes of the area). Yet, an even more interesting discovery was made between the years 1940 and 1950. In this period, archaeologists unearthed 80 humanoid skeletons which appeared to be giants. The huge skeletons measured about four to five meters (13-16 feet) in height.

Giant skeletons have been unearthed in other parts of the country as well. As one example, in October 1989, 20 giant skeletons were found in Pantelimon – Lebada.

Other such discoveries have been unearthed at Polovragi, at Cetateni, beneath Negru Voda Monastery, and in the Bucegi Mountains - where the existence of a network of underground tunnels surprised workers.

Thus, skeletons of giants have been discovered in many places around Romania. To get straight to the point, giants have been discovered in: Scaieni in Buzau County, Mariuta in Calarasi County, Persani Mountains, Polovragi, Piatra Craiului, Tara Hategului, Cetateni beneath Negru Voda Monastery, and in many other places.

In Maramures, the Fortress of Oncesti (“Cetatea de la Oncesti”) was believed to be the home of the giants. At Argedava, giants with a height of over five meters (16 feet) have been discovered in 80 graves. Although most are suddenly “lost” after being discovered, the secret Romanian giants continue to be unearthed.

Hi Humbleanswers,I have to say you are a refreshing person to correspond with as you have not wanted to burn me at the stake like so many others have wanted to.
I was actually a believer in my youth (long long ago) lol and I have read the Bible,(I didn't study it so I couldn't quote from it) and wouldn't miss mass for love nor money it was vital to me but I think even then I had misgivings about things that didn't make sense to me.
As for the most important question of how we got here? I can only be honest if I tell you I don't know, I would LOVE to know but I don't, but evolution makes more sense to me, and as for what I believe to be right or wrong I think respect and decency for others is a good start. I think you are missing a crucial point when you ask me to imagine the world as a video game, who made that video game? and if as you say God made the world perfect then how could corruption enter the world? I don't believe in God but I don't believe in the big bang either because that makes no sense to me, so let me ask you to do what you asked me to do and try to look at the world as a non believer I think you might get a different answer to your questions.
now to your questions.
1 I don't know how life started on this planet or if there's life elsewhere in the universe.
2 I don't think there is much logic on this planet(ie) some people Grossly overweight and children starving to death, we have the power to eradicate hunger on this planet but just won't. we have Solar power, wave power,wind power and geothermal power yet we continue to pollute the earth with fossil fuels, solving these problems would be logical to me for a start.
3 I think common decency, respect,charity and Mercy most of all are right and pure greed such as you see in most leaders around the world is absolutely wrong.

Hi Again,

I felt that I answered both questions already, but I understand if they are unacceptable to you.

1) God did not create the world this way, as I've explained corruption entered the creation and once that happened then things began to occur the way you see them today. But I'm curious, you seem to think death is wrong which is understandable, but where are you getting that from? Why is death wrong, in fact, what is right and what is wrong, especially since to you, no god exists? What would be your system of feeding?

2)Here I think is misunderstanding of what it means to be a creator. Imagine that the world is a video game, all people and creation is a part of the game. Then a playable character appears, that playable character can die and come back to life. In a similar way, Christ would be the playable character and God would be the one outside the game directing that character. It may not make sense why He would go through that to you, but if He knows He's the only one who can survive what's required, then it makes perfect sense that He would choose to go under it Himself instead of others. But there seems to be a misunderstanding of why this was even necessary, to which I felt I already answered as well. I also already answered the fact that God was working under His own design and His own rules...not sure what you're looking for here, but it is that simple. He has been around for eternity and is the only One who has and therefore His world, His rules. I'm sure you'd say the same thing if someone was in your house telling you what to do, your house, your rules.

Concerning the virgin birth, I think there is again, some misunderstanding of what it means to be creator and One who has ultimate authority over all. In this event, God created a person and allowed them to enter the world by normal means, aka birth. You fail to understand that this was considered an honor amongst all people, but especially the Jews who were looking forward to the Messiah coming and so it was not a immoral act. Nothing sexual, covetous, or improper occurred, so again, nothing wrong. Even if these are not acceptable to you, consider the fact that since He is the creator, her body was in fact, no her own just as yours is not. His creation, His materials, His DNA, His world, His universe, etc. He has all authority and can do what He wants. Even though you probably don't care, i'll quote it anyways "But our God is in heaven; He does whatever He pleases" Psalm 115:3, is the best way to sum it up. This may make you feel uncomfortable or may even make you think things are more illogical, but however you think the world should be doesn't really mean it is more logical. But another thing you misunderstand is the fact that you yourself is not perfect. How can one who is imperfect/corrupt have a perfect understanding of what is perfect. Even your concept, logic, and understanding of what is perfect is flawed, and therefore you could never understand what God does, why He does it, etc. It will always be foolishness to you.

You also did not answer my questions, please feel free to tell me your belief/worldview on the following:
1)What do you believe concerning how the universe got here and how life got here
2)What is the most logical way things should work in this world according to you
3)What is the origin/source of right and wrong

Also, in case this is last time we exchange on this; thanks for corresponding back and forth, healthy discussions are good to have when both parties remain respectful. Thanks and enjoyed!

Hi again,
I'm sorry but that makes no sense to me I asked you two questions and you answered neither.
1 what sort of god would make a universe where something has to die for something else to live.
2 when god made the world whose rules was he/she/it working under.

1 if god was so powerful and wonderful and perfect could he/she/it not have found a better way of feeding it's creation rather than something else has to die?

2 If god was working under his own rules he/she/it's a bit scary to think that he/she/it would themselves through watching only son go through such pain and suffering to make up for something he created himself, after all he created the world and everything in it. Sounds more like a nutjob than a god to me, and I could go on for ages with all the contradictions in the myth about god (ie) "thou shalt not covet thy neighbours wife" and then he impregnates a mans wife, I don't know if he had HER permission or not but I would guess not which makes it a violation of her body whatever way you look at it...

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?


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.
