News of the weird: Traces of an unknown species

In 1928 researchers found on the southern coast of Peru a cemetery that held the remains of 300 individuals with elongated skull. The discovery was led by Peruvian archaeologist Julio Tello, and it is believed that the skulls may date from about 3,000 years ago. These are known today as the “Paracas skulls”.

Biden Foerster has conducted thorough DNA analysis of these skulls he has provided new information on the issue.


Intentional deformation? Yes, you are right, but there is more! Researchers determined that most of the skull are elongated as a result of intentional deformation. A constant force was applied to the cranium for a long time which caused them to assimilate an elongated skull. Strangely, the volume and weight of the skeletons is anything but normal. According to researchers, the cranial volume of the “Paracas Skulls” is up to 25% larger and 60% heavier than conventional human skulls. And there is more to the mysterious skulls. The human skull is composed of two parietal bones located between the frontal and occipital, forming the sides of the calvaria. The calvaria or also called skullcap, is made up of the superior portions of the frontal bone, occipital bone, and parietal bones. The “Paracas Skulls” only have one!

These differences show us that cranial deformation is unintentional, and makes the “Paracas Skulls” a highly debatable subject among researchers who according to their theories, have solid arguments that sustain their point of views. Yet, even though there are so many explanations regarding the elongated skulls, the “Paracas skulls” remain a mystery among scientists.

Further analysis provided interesting information.

The analysis conducted by Brien Foerster on mitochondrial DNA yielded surprising results. It turns out that the “Paracas Skulls” have unknown mutations not characteristically for any human being or any known animal to date.

“Whatever the sample labeled 3A has come from – it had mtDNA with mutations unknown in any human, primate or animal known so far. The data are very sketchy though and a LOT of sequencing still needs to be done to recover the complete mtDNA sequence. But a few fragments I was able to sequence from this sample 3A indicate that if these mutations will hold we are dealing with a new human-like creature, very distant from Homo sapiens, Neanderthals and Denisovans.. I am not sure it will even fit into the known evolutionary tree. The question is if they were so different, they could not interbreed with humans. Breeding within their small population, they may have degenerated due to inbreeding. That would explain buried children – they were either low or not viable.” -Brien Foerster

Researchers speculate that this could be a completely “new” being very different to the Homo sapiens, Neanderthals and the Denisova hominid.

While there is a lot of interest in the elongated skull phenomena, much more research will need to be done to provide a conclusive answer that can explain once and for all the mysterious elongated skulls. Whether they are traces of a completely new species on Earth, or the remains of otherworldly beings is a debate between believers and disbelievers, between scientists and those who look at science from another perspective.

To understand the phenomena of the elongated skull, we must exit our comfort zones and look at science from a completely different view.

    Ha the first thing that went through my mind was Aliens as in Aliens Vs Predators movie. This is neat. The world is full of mysteries and it makes my eyebrow raise when science proclaims, there is nothing new under the sun.

    So their skulls were elongated in the same the tribe in Africa put those rings around their neck to stretch them out?? Or something similar to that?

    • Tristene M

      No. That is taking our body and training it to be a certain way. Their necks aren’t longer, the illusion is caused by their shoulder muscles to be shoved farther down over time.. This is different . They are missing a parietal bone. Not to mention the weight of the skull ect. There are native groups that use a board to flatten their skulls but this is a unique deviance! It’s rather exiting! 😀

    Fascinating. This is something new to me. I knew of the deliberate deformations using the boards on babies skulls. I would have put these down to a localised deformity if it wasn’t for the DNA findings. Wow!

    Wes, Ron Morehead has a lot of info about these. He participated in one of the groups that went to investigate these in Peru. I think Brien Forester and L.A Marzulli was with the group. I’m pretty sure it was featured in one of the “Watcher’s” series that LA Marzulli produces. Would love to hear what he has to say.
