There are many myths and legends in human history, some of which talk about prehistoric giants. For example, “god” Anunnaki in the Sumerian civilization.
The Sumerian civilization is one of the earliest known to mankind, appearing around the fourth millennium BC in what is now southern Iraq.
The Sumerians left behind a large number of cuneiform characters that record their history, culture, religion, science, and other aspects. The most prominent of these are their records of human origins and myths and legends.
According to the records of the Sumerian civilization, the Anunnaki were a kind of high-class being from extraterrestrial, in order to repair their home planet, they came to Earth to find the element of gold, and at the same time created humans to help them mine gold.
Over time, the Anunnaki intermarried with humans, giving birth to mixed-race children like Gilgamesh. Gilgamesh is different from ordinary people, he is five meters tall, has unlimited strength and extraordinary intellect. He once ruled Uruk, the largest and richest city in the Sumerian civilization.
These stories sound absurd to the current understanding of mankind. However, the discovery of an ancient cemetery proves that Gilgamesh may indeed exist.
“We found the remains of a structure that could be considered a catacomb just outside the city of Uruk, in what was once the bed of the Euphrates,” Fassbinder said.
In 2003, in the southern part of Iraq, through sonar technology, an archaeological team led by German expert Jorg Fassbinder, of the Munich History Museum, discovered an ancient city in the desert, this ancient city has 5,000 years of history. Here the team of archaeologists discovered that not only has gardens, houses, canals and facilities of all kinds, but this city also has a huge mausoleum.
The archaeological team recovered information from the sonar discovery, this ancient city is almost identical to the city of Uruk in the records of the Sumerian civilization. Uruk was the earliest and most important city in the Sumerian civilization, where Gilgamesh once ruled.
With a diameter of more than 5 km, it could be considered the largest city in the world at that time. It has walls up to 10 meters high, as well as many temples and palaces. It also has a very advanced system of canals that can irrigate farmland and serve as a means of transportation. All of this shows that Uruk used to be a very rich and developed city in the past.
Over an area of more than 100 hectares excavated, the team also identified garden structures, fields and even Babylonian houses, as described in the epic about Gilgamesh. The most astonishing find, however, was an unbelievably complex system of canals, “like Venice in the desert,” says Fassbinder. That proves the high level of development of the ancient inhabitants here
Furthermore, a statue of Gilgamesh has been unearthed in the mausoleum, which strangely wears a watch-like object in its hand and holds an adult lion. This evidence suggests that this may have been where Gilgamesh ruled, and that he may have actually existed.
Because according to Sumerian records, Gilgamesh was the 5th king of Uruk in the Sumerian King List, he is considered the son of Lugarbanda and the son of the goddess Ningsong. He is also known as the “King of Heroes” because of his strength and courage that surpasses that of ordinary people.
In the epic, Gilgamesh is described as possessing 2/3 of god’s blood and 1/3 of human’s blood, meaning he has the wisdom and strength of the gods, but not the longevity of the gods. Gilgamesh ruled very cruelly over his people, forcing young people into slavery. So the people called on the gods for help, and the gods created Enkidu, a wild man, to confront and stop Gilgamesh’s brutality. Enkidu goes to Uruk and has a fierce fight with Gilgamesh, the two eventually becoming friends regardless of the outcome.

Since then, Gilgamesh changed his behavior, starting to care about his people and participating in adventures with Enkidu. Defeat many monsters and enemies. He also went to find the law of immortality and left behind a “book of wisdom”. If these stories are true, then Gilgamesh is not just a mythical figure, but a real giant.
If so, the tomb is not only an archaeological discovery but also could change understanding of human history and origins. Because according to the records of the Sumerian civilization, the Anunnaki were a kind of superior being from extraterrestrial.
If these stories are true, then humans are not the result of natural evolution, but alien experiments. And Gilgamesh may have had powers and wisdom far beyond humans, He may have found a way to live forever, and may have mastered advanced technology. These are things that make people extremely curious and eager to discover.
2,500 years before the birth of Christ, the emperor Gilgamesh, ruler of Uruk, became the main character in the Epic of Gilgamesh – the “book” considered the oldest in history, which is actually just a set of inscribed slates. According to this epic, Gilgamesh was buried in a tomb in the bed of the Euphrates River. However, after his death, the river turned in a different direction
Unfortunately, not long after archaeologists discovered this ancient tomb, war broke out in the Middle East again. This area has been blocked off, prohibiting neighbors and journalists from setting foot in. Therefore, the mystery of this area has not been solved yet and all that is being rumored are hypotheses that have not been scientifically proven.
