The skull is the most interesting among all parts of the human skeleton. After all, thanks to him you can restore the face of the owner. And anthropologists, archaeologists, physicians and other specialists can get a lot of information for themselves.
Not surprisingly, throughout the history of mankind there were always those people who speculated with themes related to skulls. So there were mystical stories.
And it was done to attract attention to yourself and make a profit. After all, often the desired was given as valid, and the public was misled. Below is a story about the ten most famous and mysterious human turtles. Skull of the “star boy”.
This case was an illustrative example of how modern specialists can process an archaeological find. An unusual skull was found in 1930 in Mexico. But the public learned about the sensational discovery in only 70 years. Only in 1999 the world press reported a unique skull. Ufologists quickly came to the conclusion that the owner of it was the result of crossing aliens with humans, or even was an alien, such a “star boy.” However, radiocarbon analysis showed that the skull is only about 900 years old. Finally, independent DNA tests were revealed. They showed that the skull is of a completely human origin. The scientists found out that this part of the skeleton belonged to a small boy, a native Indian. The unusual shape of the skull is caused by his disease hydrocephalus.
Strange skull from Piltdown.
Scientist Charles Dawson discovered in 1912 in English Piltdown an unusual skull. It seemed that its owner was a strange cross between man and monkey. Dawson called his find the missing link between primates and man. The upper part of the skull of the ball is similar to the “homo sapiens”, but the jaws on the lower part were unnaturally long. However, in fact, it turned out that the find was just a successful hoax. This was officially announced in 1953. But this skull provoked long disputes of paleontologists about the evolution of man. There mystification is still one of the most famous in the last century.
Skull of Batavus Genuinus.
This skull was found in 1828 on the Dutch island of Marken. He differed from ordinary samples with his beveled forehead. Scientists have proposed a theory according to which the island was inhabited not by “homo sapiens”, but by some much more ancient humanoids, compelled to evolve far from the whole world. However, the secret was revealed in 1912. Then the Dutch doctor Batavus Genuinus found that the forehead is deformed because of the traditional narrow headdress. He was put on the head of all the children on the island. Those same people who left Marken at an early age, such a deformation of the skull did not.
Not so long ago, there were pictures on the Internet where scientists unearth a giant skull. Even the place of the sensational discovery was not known. The photos were taken secretly from the helicopter. It was clear that the workers were digging out not just a huge skull, but the rest of the skeleton. But later it was found out that these photographs were the result of combining other images. Skull from Calaveras.
In 1866, American miners discovered in Calaveres an unusual skull. With his help, Joshua Whitney proved to everyone that another 2 million years ago people lived on the territory of America. However, the shape of the skull was quite modern, many even believed that all this time the person practically did not evolve. But the subsequent chemical tests showed that the age of the skull is much smaller. Whitney’s theory began to crumble. In 1992, a carbon analysis of the find in general proved that the skull is only 1,000 years old.
Extension of the skull.
Skulls with an elongated back part or simply deformed around the world found quite a lot. The fact is that people often resort to changing the shape of the child’s head.Children have a soft skull that allows you to change its shape, as it was on the island of Marken. Extended forms were discovered even earlier than written history. Scientists have tested all of them with DNA tests. Predictably it turned out that they all belonged to either the Neanderthal man or the intelligent man. So here there were no sensations. Skulls with horns.
There are quite a few statements about finding human skulls with horns. Only independent studies of these artifacts have been conducted quite a bit. Scientists say that some specific skin tumors may resemble horns in their form. But this has nothing to do with the skeleton, such formations are more like nails than horns. Most often, references to finding horned horns correlate with Pennsylvania. Only they mysteriously disappeared, as soon as experts were going to examine them.
A real legend has been created about these turtles. They became widely known to the public at the end of the 19th century. Since then, skulls have often changed their owners, having been in the hands of collectors and museums. It was said that these artifacts were created by the Mayans or the Aztecs, while using alien technology. Touching the unusual skulls gave power and allowed healing. In total, there were 13 of them in the world in order to obtain divine power, it was necessary to collect all of them together. However, a study of the technology of production and crystal itself showed that skulls were created in Europe. And their age does not exceed 200 years. Yes, they looked really beautiful. But nevertheless it was a fake. It remains unknown whether such skulls created one person, or the first inspired someone else to create the rest. It is not clear whether such items were originally issued for real ones.
Recently, the director of the private museum “Rites of the Andes” announced that the remains of two mummies were found in the Cusco region. One of them was about half a meter in height. Her skull was stretched, and her eye sockets were unnaturally large. And in one of them there were parts of the eyeball, which allows us to hope for DNA analysis. A couple of anthropologists have already conducted a superficial examination of the found mummies and confirmed that they are not people. It is interesting that the find was made on the hill Viracochan, where the Indians used to worship the god of the universe.
Bulgarian alien skull.
In 2002, it was reported that an alien skull was found in southern Bulgaria. He found a peasant 200 kilometers from Sofia. At the same time, the man said that he dreamed of some people in metal clothes, who pointed out to him the place of the future find. The skull weighs only 250 grams, there were six holes in it, where once the senses were located. But there were no bone structures, like our oral cavity, at all. The size of the skull is small, like that of a human child. Paleontologists confirmed that these bones are rather fresh, and not an ancient fossil. The results of radiocarbon analysis and DNA analysis have not yet been publicized. Skull of Olistikka.
This discovery was made in 2007 on the Danish island of Sylland in the village of Olistikka. More recently, the skull fell into the hands of researchers, but the results of their work yet. During the repair work, a strange object was found in the house, which, when examined in detail, showed its human features. Immediately excavations began, but they did not reveal other similar objects. Although the skull was found in the same layer as the objects from the Stone Age, the scientists proved that they buried it here not until 1900. Most likely the skull was hidden for a long time, and then buried. Curiously, on the island itself there were legends about a mysterious man who kept strange artifacts, including a deformed skull. The Silent Skull itself is one and a half times as large as the human skull. Stand out on it are huge eye sockets. Most likely its owner could easily see in the dark.The skull had a smooth surface, it says that the creature well tolerated the cold environment. Perhaps it was an alien whose planet was far from the star or that was dull.
