The Giants Found in Romania and the Huge Cover-Up

In the 1940’s, archaeologists were overseeing a dig at Argedava in Romania, searching for priceless artifacts within the ruins of what was once the greatest citadel of the Dacian leader Burebista. The locals did most of the digging and they were glad to be making a little extra during those times of hardship.

Among them was Ionita Florea, now an old man well in his eighties. He was the one who dug up an enormous skull, two or three times the size of a regular one. When he notified the archaeologists, the workers were quickly dismissed and the researchers resumed the digging themselves.

Their findings were loaded onto trucks and shipped away with the utmost secrecy. By the end of the excavation, they had collected around 80 skeletons, most of them complete. They had also recovered giant ceramic pots filled with grains.

To this day, nobody knows where the skeletons are.

This is not an isolated incident. In more recent years, villagers in Scaieni uncovered an ancient giants’ graveyard while planting an apple orchard. Once again, it was the skulls’ giant sizes that puzzled everyone.

Alongside the complete skeletons, the villagers also found pottery fragments, jewelry and strange metal statues about 3 feet tall. A team of archaeologists came, dug everything up and vanished. No public statement was made and the locals refuse to discuss what happened after they announced their finding.

Were they strong-armed into silence? Is this event part of a greater conspiracy?

There are plenty of legends about giants in the area. According to folklore, giants once inhabited the mountains and forests around Scaieni. In fact, huge thrones were found sculpted in the mountainside, in an area inaccessible to regular human beings.

Legends tell that there are two gigantic underground vaults beneath the mountains, holding the giants’ ancient treasures. Could these vaults be real? If found, what stories would they tell?

In 2009, a local news channel started an investigation about the giants and their secret tunnels beneath the Bucegi mountains. Just as their report went on air, they received a live phone call from a man who refused to identify himself.

The journalists were threatened to stop their ongoing investigation or else. As the mysterious man put it, they were “playing a dangerous game.”

“Stop talking about the Bucegi [mountains]. Information like that must not be made public and there are certain structures that deal with cases such as this.

You do not wish to know us, you don’t want to interview us. That’s all I want to say.” He then hung up and the broadcast was interrupted. Was this an orchestrated hoax or a live case of a threatening secret cover-up? Only the journalists know and they refuse to discuss the subject.

In an intriguing twist, the airspace above the Bucegi Plateau is a restricted no-fly zone. Many sources point to the CIA being involved.

Incidents like these happen all around the world. There is a distinct lack of physical evidence whenever people report findings of giant skeletons. Authorities arrive first, leaving behind hastily covered excavations, no artifacts and muted locals. One might think something really strange is going on.

  1. I don’t know about the article, seems shady. But the black and white picture is one of the worst photoshop jobs I have seen in my entire life. And I’ve seen hundreds of thousands of them.

    • It’s not photoshop, the story is in fact real. I live just at the base of the Bucegi Mountains and I can tell you that strange things keep happening, only if you pay attention..
      I’ve also heard lots of my dad’s friends talk about it at the dinner table as a weird late night talk, but I did research on it and it might actually be true!
      Long story short the bunker thing in the mountains is not necessarily for giants, but for aliens because of the strange light and UFO like things flying around on some nights. (these things were reported to have been seen). They say that part of the mountain “splits up” into two doors that lead right in the underground space.

      Hope this helped somehow.

    • You have not seen 100,000’s of photoshopped images. I have been a professional graphic designer for 11 years, with Photoshop being one of my daily tools; the black and white photo, IF PHOTOSHOPPED, is a MASTERFUL job at photoshopping. I know what it would take to pull something like that off and it would be MANY MONTHS, if not years, of extremely tedious and highly pixilated work, as one would have to alter each invidious pixel to make it look this good. Nothing about the black & white photo shows any signs of Photoshopping from my professional, decade+ experience working daily with Photoshop.
