Russian Archeologists Find Elongated Skull with Perfect Teeth
Archeologists uncovered another skeleton with an elongated skull, much like the “Paracas skulls” found in Peru. In addition to the noticeably deformed cranium, the skeletal remains showed a female with unusually pristine teeth that remained preserved for somewhere between 1,700 and 2,000 years.
The remains were discovered at a 4,000-year-old settlement known as Arkaim, in Russia’s Chelyabinsk Oblast. The site is referred to as Russia’s Stonehenge, due to the remains of a monolithic structure that once stood there, which has become a mecca for pagans, psychics, astrologers, and clairvoyants.
The arrangement of the structure at Arkaim was believed to have been used for astronomy but in some instances, visitors have described strange magnetic anomalies, unexplained lights, and even hallucinations during visits.
Arkhaim and the Ural Mountains in general have also become a hotspot for UFO sightings, attracting throngs of seekers hoping to catch a glimpse of the unusual aerial phenomena.
In the past, the unearthing of elongated skulls tended to elicit speculation and headlines describing their discovery as evidence of aliens, but the practice of using wooden boards and wraps to intentionally stretch the skull of child is a well-documented practice. In fact, a parent could even shape the skull of an infant in such a fashion, simply by massaging it when the baby’s skull was soft and tensile.
But of course this hasn’t stopped tabloids from continuing to publish fantastic headlines calling newly unearthed elongated skulls “alien-like,” and the latest discovery is no exception.
Researchers believe this skeleton is unconnected to the original Arkaim civilization as radiocarbon dating placed it at a significantly earlier date. Instead, the ancient woman was believed to have belonged to the Sarmati tribe that inhabited the southern Urals.
Cranial deformation began while a child was still an infant, but no one is quite sure why ancient cultures conducted this practice. Some speculate that it was a way to achieve a more masculine look for males, but this wouldn’t explain the elongation of the recently discovered female skull. The most widely accepted answer is that it was believed to be an indicator of higher social status.
And elongated skulls or their depiction in ancient civilizations can be found all over the world, dating back to ancient Egyptian pharaohs, such as King Tut, Nefertiti, and Akhenaton. Meanwhile, similar skulls have been unearthed in a multitude of disparate areas across the world including England, France, Peru, and in parts of Africa.
Some proponents of the ancient astronaut theory believe the elongated skulls were an attempt to emulate the look of an ancient extraterrestrial race that visited our ancestors, but no one knows for certain. Still the practice becomes interesting especially when you throw Gaia’s 2017 discovery of several anomalous Peruvian skeletons with elongated skulls from Nazca into the mix.
Ancient Solar Storm Backs Theory of Lost Civilization's Cataclysm
Scientists studying ice core samples in Greenland found evidence of a massive solar storm stronger than any recorded in modern history, including the devastating coronal mass ejection (CME) of 1859 known as the Carrington Event.
The discovery implies that these types of severe solar events occur more frequently than previously believed and may support Dr. Robert Schoch’s theory of a solar-induced extinction event that wiped out several advanced, ancient civilizations.
Researchers have made some fascinating breakthroughs studying Greenland’s ice sheet lately, including the discovery of two massive, 12,000-year-old asteroid impact craters, which researchers like Graham Hancock point to as the catalyst for the Younger Dryas period – an anachronistic ice age caused by dust and sediment thrown into the atmosphere, which blocked out the sun.
Schoch says he believes the Younger Dryas suddenly ended when a massive solar storm, such as a CME, scorched the planet and led to the rapid melting of ice, causing global flooding and an inhospitable climate– what Schoch has dubbed a Solar-Induced Dark Age, or SIDA. The intense heat and plasma outbursts from the sun caused further extinction of civilizations that survived the ice age, while forcing remaining survivors to retreat below ground.
Schoch says one sees evidence of this in some of the oldest ruins on Earth, including the megalithic statues at Göbekli Tepe and Easter Island, which were not only buried below ground, but also show carvings that Schoch says he believes depict the solar phenomena these ancient people witnessed in the atmosphere.
Underground caves and shelters in the Cappadocia region of Anatolia, Turkey is further evidence for Schoch’s theory, which he says may be the key to our discovery of evidence for famously elusive, antediluvian civilizations such as Atlantis. According to Schoch, low-lying, thick stoned shelters with narrow entries, much like fall-out shelters or bunkers, have been found in these areas further supporting the idea that these people attempted to protect themselves from some aerial catastrophe.
This latest study appears to lend credence to Schoch’s theory, as radioactive atoms beryillium-10, chlorine-36, and carbon-14 caused by extensive radiation from solar protons were discovered in ice core samples, suggesting these types of solar storms happened way more often than once thought, and with much greater intensity.
Both Schoch’s and Hancock’s theories have been labeled “heretical” and “pseudoscientific,” but with more corroborating evidence such as this, their cases continue to strengthen. Meanwhile, the stalwarts of archeology continue to disregard mounting evidence that traditional narratives we’ve long been fed seem to be flawed.
And with this growing body of evidence showing human history may have a significantly older timeline, it’s hard to ignore Hancock’s assertion that when it comes to our own history, we may be “a species with amnesia.”
