The buried giant is the sad memory of our recent national attrocity (pick your nation), the mass grave we hope no one will dig up (E.T. Is the buried giant of Atari).

Also probably a reference to the giant Bran the Blessed's buried head. Except Arthur digs it up, so it wouldn't still be buried during the novel.
