THE remains of a GIANT human have been found in an ancient Roman fortress.
Archaeologists unearthed the bones while excavating the old Roman city of Odessus in the Bulgarian city of Varna.
The man, nicknamed Goliath, is thought to be over nine feet tall and to have died defending his castle in the late fourth century.
Head archaeologist Valeri Yotov says the finding has left researchers baffled.
“The size of the bones are enormous and very impressive. It’s clear this was a huge man,” he revealed.
“We suspect he may have been killed maybe while defending the wall as his remains were found alongside the wall.
“If he was not a defender then he may have been involved in building the wall.”
The remains will now be taken away and examined where experts are hoping to find further details about how big this man actually stood.
A spokesman for Varna Museum of Archaeology, where the tests will be carried out, said: “We are very excited by this discovery and who knows what else the archaeologists may find.
“For now though we want to find out as much as we can about this huge man and to finalise his height.”
The ancient city of Odessos was originally a post built by the Ancient Greeks in 600 BC.
Odessos was later taken over by the Romans who changed the name to Odessus.
