I think you meant mystical. No one is claiming that it is mythical. It very obviously is not mythical as there IS a REAL skeleton there.

We never get updates do you have a way to find the information? Like what was the results of the tests on the "Lead "Burrito" Sarcophagus Found Near Rome" and the other lead coffin, I could never find any updates. What happened to the robot going into the air shaft in the Pyramid? Any news anywhere?

Sorry to say that I have no European contacts...the bulk of my work was done in the US so the net is my only source for info on these things. Some of these tests could take some weeks.
I'm still a bit mystified as to why the bones weren't measured before removal. That is pretty much standard practice in the US due to the fragile nature of old bones. While those field measurements may not be as precise as those done in the laboratory after cleaning, they can give a fairly accurate estimate of height.
I'll be eagerly awaiting seeing more about this as well.

I thought main stream archaeology has been hiding the giants and all that for a long long time and covering it all up? lol

This is an excellent find, I wonder what its grave in relationship to the fortress wall was and if it is significant. Also goes to show that sometimes its insane to not know the things right below your feet, I mean I am surprised no one knew there was not anything there when they started putting pipes and all that in the ground.


I actually firmly believe that there is a MASSIVE cover up of the actual historical record by the archaeological community, there is just too much stuff that doesn't make sense that's been found, unless the suggested timeline is completely false.

I'm a firm believer that a technology rich civilization has risen on Earth before, and probably destroyed themselves. There is evidence of nuclear explosions thousands of years old in India / Pakistan, and too many artifacts out of place with the time line that has been officially proposed.

Quite cool, it's always interesting to see the rare tall skeleton. People refuse to believe it's not some new modern nutrition thing.

If an archaeologist finds a skeleton that's over ten feet tall then the claim of a giant wouldn't be unfounded.


In general, anyone who is 7' or taller could be referred to as a giant. People this tall are exceedingly rare. A frequently referenced estimate is that there are approximately 2,800 people 7' and taller in the world today. There are an estimated 7.3 billion people in the world. That works out to be something like less than .0000004% of the global population being 7' or taller. Estimates for the global population in 500 AD are around 200 million. Divide 2,800 by 36.5 and you'll get 76.

A reasonable estimate is that at the time this man died, there were far less than 100 people 7' tall in the entire world if the frequency of 7 footers was the same then as it is now. That's all back of the napkin math of course and it ignores factors like different ethnic groups having different frequencies but to give a rough idea for the sake of argument, that would be like one 7' or taller person out of every 2,000,000. How many graves from antiquity have been excavated by archaeologists?


Quoting so people can re-read & douse the mystical wishy-washy junk with a little logic. You can't make a natural occurrence something exotic just because you want to, tall folks have existed forever. Are tall people really so boring as-is that they have to be repainted as some old myth to get hot & bothered over?

no estimation of the man's height in life has been released.


Seriously? They're archeologists and they can't provide an estimate?... How long are they gonna keep us hangin' by a thread?

Here are some better quality photos..

Nothing new around the case. Tall guy, but not a giant as they say. Actually there is no confirmation on the height yet.

If you believe such a cover-up is going on, why don't you go into the field yourself? Also, please cite this 'evidence' of nuclear explosions occurring thousands of years ago.

This is an awesome find, if it IS indeed a legitimate find. I haven't found any credible sites covering this find, only conspiracy sites (no pun intended lol) and facebook groups..

Here is an updated report that states that the remains have not been removed from the grave so have not yet been measured. Now that makes things a bit more understandable---but only a bit. Fairly accurate measurements can be made with the remains still in situ but to be absolutely accurate they must be removed, cleaned and measured in the lab.
archaeologyinbulgaria.com... ogists-inform/

My guess is that since this caused such a sensation the guy is being deliberately careful before releasing any further information. After all, he has denied it is an "Atlantis giant" so what more can he say until he has exhumed the remains and studied them?

You don't consider the official site of Bulgarian Archaeology a credible site? Why?

a reply to: Brotherman somewhere on ATS today I was reading about an organization that accused Nat Geo of destroying thousands of Giant Skeletons to preserve the mainstream history of mankind. Nat Geo sued siting defamation of character. Then they went on to say that at the court hearing they produced a 1.3 meter human femur bone from a giant. The bone was smuggled out of Nat Geo during the 30's when they were destroying the giant skeletons. The Archeologist that smuggled it out gave a deathbed deposition with signed witnesses of how he smuggled the bone out and what it was.

With the position of the body in the first picture, looks as if he were trying to tunnel out...

Just thought this thread needed an update



the discovery of the first skeleton under the previously unknown fortress wall, which was at first described by the media as a “giant” but was later found to have been tall only 165 cm (about 5 feet 4 inches).

news update
Wow, a 5'4 " giant
This is the same newspaper that made the original release, guess those sneaky archaeologists covered it up again eh
lol

You misheard it
The report you read originated in the weekly world news, it was probably the first story right after "Alien Elvis impregnated mother of Baloney sandwhich"
www.snopes.com...

At some point, you believers are going to have to come to terms with the fact that not everything you read is true, no matter how long you threaten to hold your breath for

Why wouldn't you also give mention to the obvious
lack of professionalism involved in making such a huge
error?

The story was based on the size of the head. The skeleton had yet to be recovered at that time.

Once it was, the guy didn't dash out to the local newspaper and give the results - they were given in an academic paper. Not exactly a quick method of dissemination.

I've been thinking the whole time, Did they get the sewer hooked up yet or is a neighborhood still without plumbing because some guy had to die in the dirt 1600 years ago.
all for world's smallest giant lol.
