An unusual skeleton with a large, elongated skull was recently uncovered at Arkaim, an archaeological site often referred to as Russia’s Stonehenge.
The Mail Online reports that the discovery has already sparked discussions among alien enthusiasts. As our previous articles have shown, the enigma surrounding strange skeletons with elongated skulls continues to remain unexplained.
The Arkaim archaeological site can be found in central Russia’s Chelyabinsk region, a place where many such mysteries originate. Its age and structure, similar to that of Stonehenge, suggest it played a similar role as a star observatory.
Maria Makurova, a researcher who participated in the archaeological dig, offered her opinion on the subject:
“I would not exclude the possibility that the skeleton belongs to a woman from the Sarmati tribe that lived in the territories of what is now modern day Ukraine, Kazakhstan and southern Russia.”
The Paracas Skulls
Discovered on the southern coast of Peru in 1928, these 300 skulls never really fit snugly inside the accepted archaeological paradigms and that’s because no theory has been able to fully explain them.
For instance, head binding can alter the shape of a human skull but it cannot increase the size, weight or cranial capacity as these are all standard characteristics of regular skulls.
So how can cranial deformation account for the Paracas skulls being 25 percent larger and 60 percent heavier than regularly-shaped ones?
Furthermore, recent genetic tests have shown the presence of unprecedented mutations in the mitochondrial DNA (inherited from the mother) of the skulls.
