The skeletons were found in village called Scaieni (in the south-eastern part of the Carpathians) founded in the 1600's.

The villagers say that stories about the giants are very common in the area, that they have inhabited these places for a very long time. They are responsible for the giant tombs found all over the place, they have built the first forts and stone pillars.

The skeletons were found by accident while the villagers were digging in an apple orchard. Most of them measure around 2.40 meters. Several skeletons were sent to Bucharest for research together with some pottery found near the skeletons, but nobody came to look deeper in this matter.
