Archaeologists In A State Of Amazement: ‘Discovering The Cemeteries Of Giants In Crimea

“During archaeological excavations in Crimea, experts discovered a necropolis from the Byzantine Empire where the tomb of a giant was found.

While reconstruction work on the Mithridates staircase in Kerch continues, archaeological excavations in the area have also begun.”

“This revealed up to 100 square meters of a necropolis, in which were the burials of people who once visited the temple of John the Baptist.

To date there are 27 burials unearthed, some of children and twin burials. In addition to remains, such as bronze pendants or bracelets.

“At one of the burials they even managed to find fine felt clothing. This was of great help, as it allowed them to date the find.

Tomb of a giant in the necropolis. The find itself was not common and became much stranger when they found a burial box that exceeded 2.30 meters in length. When they discovered it, they found what appeared to be the skeleton of a giant.”

“If the standard physique of the area’s inhabitants in the past is taken into account, finding the skeleton of a man who was over two meters tall is something that does not agree with the data.

The average height of the population at that time was 1.60 meters tall, so there is no way to explain how the remains of this giant were buried in the area.

The remains were examined by the team’s anthropologist, who hopes to give an estimate of the age of the person buried there.

The remains must be analyzed to discover their origin and geographical location. In ancient times, garbage was simply thrown on the ground.”

“Then, in the Middle Ages, the necropolis was created over all the ancient remains. For this reason, it is difficult for archaeologists to give an exact interpretation of the origin of everything found.

Currently, experts are in negotiations with the Kerch-Feodosia authorities to be able to extract the remains found and better examine them.

Experts continue to investigate the origin of the most mysterious skeleton and the reason for its abnormal size. In addition to finding an explanation for its origins.

The existence of giants is common in different ancient cultures, despite the fact that transnational archeology tries to keep these types of finds hidden. But discoveries like the one in Crimea show that they existed.”
