An unusual skeleton with a large, elongated skull was recently uncovered at Arkaim, an archaeological site often referred to as Russia’s Stonehenge.
The Mail Online reports that the discovery has already sparked discussions among alien enthusiasts. As our previous articles have shown, the enigma surrounding strange skeletons with elongated skulls continues to remain unexplained.
The Arkaim archaeological site can be found in central Russia’s Chelyabinsk region, a place where many such mysteries originate. Its age and structure, similar to that of Stonehenge, suggest it played a similar role as a star observatory.
Archaeologists exploring a 4,000 year-old settlement near Arkaim dug up this curious skeleton, which belonged to a woman who lived two millennia ago. Maria Makurova, a researcher who participated in the archaeological dig, offered her opinion on the subject:
“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.”
However, Makurova does not subscribe to the idea that the skeleton is proof of prehistoric alien presence in the region. She and her colleagues believe the skull’s peculiar shape is the result of cultural traditions rather than extraterrestrial interference with the human species:
“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.” She refrained from further commenting on the issue, stating that research is being carried out to determine the exact reasons behind this tradition.
Indeed, the practice of head binding is present in many cultures throughout the globe and spans different eras. But where and why it originated is still a mystery.
Many alien enthusiasts and researchers propose a highly controversial explanation for this phenomenon. Although binding the heads of infants using ropes is definitely a human practice, it could have been caused by the presence of extraterrestrial beings.
Modern depictions of aliens paint a similar picture: humanoid figures with large, elongated heads. Author and researcher Brian Foerster suspects the practice of head binding is connected to the existence of extraterrestrials on Earth. If aliens truly visited our planet and interacted with human societies, they were certainly viewed as gods. And since worship involves imitation, Foerster believes humans began changing the shape of their heads to resemble those of the alien ‘gods.’
