Giant Skeleton Discovered in Bulgaria


A team of archaeologists have uncovered the skeletal remains of a giant in the Bulgarian city of Varna.

Located on the eastern shores of the Black Sea, Varna is now a major tourist attraction. The area has a rich culture and its history goes all the way back to 5,000 BC. The oldest golden treasure in the world was found during excavations at the Varna Necropolis and carbon dating revealed it was buried more than 6,500 years ago.

In the 7th century BC, the Greeks founded a trading post called Odessos in what is now Varna. It was populated by a mix of Greeks and Thracians. Towards the end of the second century AD, Odessos was turned into a Roman retreat and renamed Odessus.

The giant skeleton was found earlier this month, buried near the remains of Odessus’ ancient city wall. It is estimated the giant human lived and died during the 5th century AD.


Valeri Yotov, a member of the excavation team was quoted as saying the size of the bones was “impressive” but refused to provide exact details.

As we started to uncover the ancient fortress wall, we began asking ourselves a lot of questions, and, of course, we had to keep digging to reach the wall’s foundations. That’s how we stumbled upon the skeleton,” he said.

The skeleton’s posture is a clear indication that the man was buried in a ceremonial fashion. Its hands are laid on its waist, the head is pointing to the east and its head to the west.

Until further details are released, we can only speculate on the subject. If the skeleton is indeed of gigantic proportions, it would constitute a major archaeological breakthrough and it would be even better if this discovery wouldn’t be swept under the rug eventually.

That being said, this wouldn’t be the only giant skeleton uncovered in Eastern Europe. In the summer of 2012, archaeologists made a similar discovery near the Romanian town of Carei. The excavation of a 5,0000 year-old Bronze Age settlement uncovered the remains of an 8-ft. tall warrior, buried with a dagger next to his head. Back then, the average height was around 5 feet, making the owner of this skeleton a true giant among his peers.

      Numbers 13:33
      And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.

      No doubt giants have lived on earth in the past. They obviously died off due to some unknown reasons.

      One thing that we can speculate is that they may have died off due to the lack of food. Something big happened to earth that permanently changed the climate of the earth in such a way that the earth can no longer produce enough food to feed the giants.

      The disadvantage of the giants would have been that they have to eat 10 to 20 times more food than normal human beings to survive. And if the earth’s weather changes drastically in such a way that the food can become extremely scarce, giants could not have survived. They probably ate each other of hunger until all perished.

      You see the smaller people have the advantage of higher chance of survival in the harsh climate environment.

        The planet shifted off its axis 13000 years ago at the fall of Atlantis and what had protected the earth from space radiation was destroyed. There were in place before then two ice shields around the planet at high altitudes that acted as protection from this outer space radiation and after this occurred the beings still alive and trying to survive were bombarded by life deteriorating rays that over thousands of years shrank the populations physical projections. There was much canibalizm that went on even into the historical times as is recorded. These ice shields were called the ‘Firmament’ in the Bible and were placed there by the civilization that fell at that time 13000 years ago. When they came down it was a large amount of water that added to the depths of the seas. Signs of this can be found in the Carolinas and named Carolina Bays. Google Carolina Bays and see for yourself.

      Giants have a huge problem on Earth because of difficulty cooling their bodies. They have a high mass/surface area ratio and that means more heat must be shed per unit area of exposed skin. This is a big problem when strenuous activity is undertaken or during very hot weather. No large species would last long on Earth.

      One thing….They can not carbon date gold.

      YAAAAWWWNNN……….. :roll:

      Photo from an old photoshop contest.

    • That_was_Random

      the first picture on this post is photoshopped. and badly.
      Ergo, the entire post is shite.

    • VirusGuard

      if you think the GCI on this one is not as good as it could be then know its better than some of the picture being held up in courts as evidence by the police these days who are not opposed to setting people up.

      The camera can and does tell lies these days and is being used to misguide members of a jury.

      Old, debunked, photoshops, that have been posted on BIN by numerous people too lazy to do research.

      When I’m home on a break, I lock myself in my room and play guitar. After two or three hours, I start getting into this total meditation. It’s a feeling few people experience, and that’s usually when I come up with weird stuff. It just flows. I can’t force myself. I don’t sit down and say I’ve got to practice.

      Original image for image #1

      Image #2 has no scale references, so it is pointless to be included here.

      I do not like green eggs and lies.

      There was way more Oxygen thousands of years ago everything grew bigger. example dragonfly 3-4 inches they absorb oxygen through their exo skin/skeleton their fossils tell us they were 4-5 feet long. They couldn’t live today that big because the percent of oxygen in today’s air is 5 times less then the Jurassic Period when everything grew way bigger. Today a 4 foot dragon fly would suffocate within minutes.

        There’s also a theory that the earth’s gravitational pull was way less than it is today.

      Another fallen angel, it looks like this one hit the ground hard, and didn’t get back up.

      I explain the way to debunk this hoax, here : (in french, with pictures & video)

    • denis

      There is no such thing, I am from Bulgaria and more over I live in Varna :D . I can guarantee that besides the ruined concrete tiles and broken pavers through the entire center caused by the construction team of gypsies no such thing was found … do not believe everything you read….

    • VirusGuard

      Odd that this old story on BIN keeps popping up or is none of the new stuff posted by regular members here not worth reading.

      My last post didn’t even make it too the front page so it looks like the dice are loaded here these days so don’t blame me for not wasting time to post more.

      Level playing field is all I ask
