Are Ancient Peruvians With Long Skulls Aliens? No, They Were Self-Made, Says Study

• Mainstream researchers have discovered elongated skulls in humans from at least a thousand years ago in various parts of North America, Africa, and Europe. They have concluded that the practice of skull elongation was very common in ancient times.
• In particular, researchers analyzed the skulls of the Collagua people who roamed in the Colca Valley in south-eastern Peru around 1100 to 1450 CE. Researchers believe that these people would bind up their baby’s head to give them a pear-shaped skull. These long-headed Collagua women also had better diets and less signs of violence than their round headed peers, indicating that they were considered privileged in their community, perhaps even royalty.
• [Editor’s Note] The unaddressed question is why would an elongated head represent a royal class? Were they trying to emulate a previous Earth species whom they revered as gods? Was it the long-headed Anunnaki and their long-headed human-hybrid descendants that civilizations all over the world were imitating?
Several conspiracy theories have surfaced online since the discovery of elongated skulls in the Peruvian theory. Many conspiracy theorists believed that aliens have once lived in Peru, while others claimed that these skulls are that of human-alien hybrids.
But now, a new study published in the journal Current Anthropology has revealed that these elongated skulls have nothing do with aliens or extraterrestrials, instead, the practice of skull elongation was very common in those ancient ages. Researchers also made it clear that similar elongated skulls were discovered from various parts of North America, Africa, and Europe.
During the study, researchers analyzed the skulls of the Collagua people who roamed in the Colca Valley in south-eastern Peru around 1100 to 1450 CE. The researchers believed that people used to bind up their baby’s head to give them a pear-shaped skull. After measuring carbon and nitrogen isotope analysis of the bones, researchers found that Collagua women with elongated skulls used to eat a more varied diet which indicates that they were more privileged than others in the community.
Interestingly, the remains of these women with elongated skulls had less physical violence inflicted on them. According to the study’s author, this is a sign that Peruvians who had elongated skulls could be from the royal family.
