Archaeologists in the Ukraine made a startling discovery this week: a skeleton that had a very pronounced conehead, according to beforeitsnews.
They believe the remains are approximately two thousand years old. The skeleton with an unusually shaped head was unearthed in Russia’s Stonehenge. The elongated skull generated interest among UFO enthusiasts, who believe that the remains could be proof that aliens visited our planet at some point and died here, according to HNGN.
Archaeologists reject the UFO theory. The experts denied the assumptions that the skeleton belongs to an alien species, and said that the bones may belong to a woman from 2,000 years ago. Her skull was bizarrely misshapen as it may have been bounded, as per traditions of her tribe, which is believed to be that of the ancient Samarti tribe.
According to Mail Online, Maria Makurova, one of the researchers, said that she does not believe the remains have anything to do with extra-terrestrial beings.
“We have found a well-preserved skeleton. 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. Her skull was elongated because the tribe did so by tying up the heads of their children with rope. It was clearly a tradition in the tribe.”
Russia’s Stonehenge is believed built in 17th century B.C. and similar to the actual Stonehenge in the U.K., it was also used as a site to study stars and constellations for thousands of years, which drew the interest of astronomers, astrologers and paranormal students alike. The location was discovered by another group of archaeologists in 1987, which have found similar artifacts, but none recently until this discovery.
While the discovery is exciting, as are other finds that have been published by the Inquisitr, it has been known for years that ancient tribes participated in some type of binding that could elongate skulls. This was likely done with the child was quite young and all of their crania plates had not fused yet, and may have been a tradition of wealth or a symbol of beauty.
What is not known is if it caused any type of head trauma or developmental problems in the brain, but the idea is plausible, as it could have been considered a type of trauma.
