Are ancient Persians have long skulls really aliens?
A recent study involving the long skulls of ancient Peruvians made it clear that these are definitely not connected to the aliens in any way. The skulls are self-made by the people.
Since the discovery of elongated skulls in Peru, several theories surfaced online claiming that these skulls are that of the aliens or human-alien hybrids. But a study published in the journal Current Anthropology rejected these claims.
What is the secret behind the elongated skulls believed to be of aliens?
The journal revealed that the elongated skulls were not of the aliens or the human-alien hybrids but instead they belong to ancient Peru civilians. The practice of skull elongation was common in that age. Also, the researchers discovered similar long skulls from various parts of Africa, Europe and North America as well.
The elongated skulls of Peru belong to the Collagua people who roamed the Colca valley between 1100 and 1450 CE. After analyzing these skulls, researchers came to the conclusion that the people used to bind their babys head to give them a pear-shaped skull.
” In times of crisis and social upheaval, the creation of new kinds of collective identity can strengthen or undermine political reintegration. It may have promoted cohesion among local elites and facilitated cooperation at higher levels of inclusiveness to coordinate agropastoral exchange, manage irrigation, or mobilize against outside forces, including (but not limited to) the encroaching Inka state.” – said Matthew Velasco of Cornell University, the lead author of the study, Brinkwire reports.
It can be said that the women who had their head elongated were that of the royal origin. The carbon and nitrogen analysis of the bones revealed that the Collagua women with pear-shaped head had a more varied diet. Also, these women had less physical violence inflicted on them compared to others. Thus, confirming their privileged status.
