Elongated Skulls of the Nasca and Paracas Regions of Ancient Peru


The Paracas and Nasca artifacts, which include the elongated skulls, can be found in museums, but how much do we really know about them?

How much do we really know about the Paracas and Nasca artifacts, which can be found in museums around the world? How did their elongated skulls come to be? There are many theories as to why they feature an elongated skull. One theory is that there was extraterrestrial involvement. Another theory is that these people modified their skulls in order to be closer to aliens or show reverence for them. But why would they have done this?

The inhabitants of the Paracas and Nasca regions in Peru may have had big heads, but these are not normal heads because they cannot belong to any human being on this planet. They look exactly like elongated skulls that have been found all over our planet.

The most likely explanation for these elongated skulls is cranial deformation, a practice in which children's heads were wrapped in such a way that as their soft skulls grew larger, it would force the head into an elongated shape (also known as artificial cranial deformation). This practice was common among certain cultures from 3000 BCE–1000 AD, including some Native Americans in North America who flattened their babies' foreheads with cradleboards. However, DNA testing has confirmed that no modern humans were involved with these beings since they contain 24 chromosomes instead of 23! It also shows characteristics similar to those found among some tribes on earth today (such as Native Americans).



The most recognizable item with regards to the Paracas people is the elongated skull.

Heads up, this is the most important part and you should pay attention:

The most recognizable item with regards to the Paracas people is the elongated skull. Elongated skulls have been discovered in many cultures around the world and belong to both adults and children. In some cases such as that of the Paracas culture, it was common for infants to be put through a process of cranial deformation in order to elongate their skulls. This procedure would typically begin during infancy in the first year of life when an infant’s skull was still soft and malleable. The pressure applied to the skull by a head frame placed on top of it would cause it to grow that way permanently. Many theorize that this practice was done because the shape lent itself well to protecting against things like heavy headwear, but some believe that it was actually done as a means of distinguishing social class within groups or tribes.

There are several theories out there about why these skulls were elongated.

The most prevalent theory about the deformation of Paracas elongated skulls is that it was done as a result of cranial binding in order to achieve an elongated skull shape. However, some other theories have also been put forth. These include:

  • The individuals with Paracas elongated skulls were a different species or race of human.

  • Members of this society were believed to be more intelligent and thus they were treated like royalty and had their heads bound so they would look different from the rest of the population.

  • They are related to aliens, because elongated skulls have also been discovered in other parts of the world such as Russia, Peru, Malta and Egypt.

  • They may be related to the Nephilim mentioned in Genesis chapter 6 - a race thought to be half-angelic hybrids created when fallen angels mated with humans; this idea has gained traction because elongated skulls are mentioned in many ancient cultures' mythology (e.g., Greek mythology includes accounts about giants with long heads).

  • They may be related to the Annunaki - who are mentioned in Sumerian texts; these beings came from Nibiru (also known as Planet X) and interbred with humans according to one version or story told about what happened during that time period."

When you look at some of the elongated skulls of the Nasca and Paracas people you see some strange features like double rows of teeth

Although it's impossible to prove that the skulls share a common ancestry, we can begin by looking at some of the features of these elongated skulls. First, consider their size. At 800 millimetres in length and with only slight sexual dimorphism (differences in skull shape between males and females), they are among the smallest known human skulls from this period. Second, they have double rows of teeth—a feature that is often associated with marsupials and should reflect their diet, which was omnivorous. Third, they show signs of typical pathologies found in modern populations—such as arthritis and dental cavities.

The elongated skulls are not just a phenomenon limited to Peru but it is something that has been seen all over the world.

You may be wondering how skulls can be elongated and the answer is that, most often, it is done by binding an infant’s head through a process called cranial deformation. The practice was widely adopted in a number of cultures because it was believed to provide advantages: status or beauty within a society, protection from evil spirits, or even a form of protection from enemy attacks or weapons.

The practice of cranial deformation began when an infant’s skull was bound with fabric or cloth and then by use of certain boards. Normal skull growth would continue but confined in the desired shape. This would not only alter the appearance but also lengthen the head and alter its proportions in comparison to normal human skulls…as you can see in the images below which compare normal human skulls to those of Paracas.

Recent DNA testing has recently been done on one of the elongated skulls from Paracas and some remarkable things were discovered.

These are not the only elongated skulls that have been discovered in Peru. The Paracas region of Peru is also home to an entire cemetery of over 300 elongated skulls, known as the Paracas Necropolis. In one burial chamber where three bodies were found, two adult and one child, the elongated skulls belonged to two women and a man. All three had evidence of cranial deformation. DNA testing was recently done on one of these Paracas skulls and it revealed a surprising result – it had mtDNA (mitochondrial DNA) with genetic markers found only in Western Europe, rather than Native American. Haplogroup U2e1 has been traced back by anthropologists for thousands of years ago and is associated with prehistoric Europe rather than South America. This finding has major implications for the origins of these people and their history on Earth, because it may suggest they did not originate in South America at all!

The ancient peoples who inhabited coastal Peru left us with many mysteries to solve, not least of which are their oversized craniums

Why these ancient peoples chose to give themselves elongated craniums is impossible to know with certainty, but the ancient Peruvians are not the only ones to have practiced this exercise in cranial modification. The Baka people of Cameroon, Africa and the Mayans of southern Mexico and Central America also performed this practice on their children. Still, none of these cultures deformed their heads as much as those that lived along coastal Peru.

Modern science has no explanation for how they were able to shape the skulls of babies while still in utero or during infancy without causing brain damage or death. Some believe that these people may have been aliens who came from another planet or universe and just left our world when they were done experimenting on humans. They would not be the first alien visitors to come here for that reason, as we all know from modern-day UFO abductions. Perhaps there was something about life in ancient Peru that drove them away from it? Was it a lack of technology? Climate change? Massive earthquakes? There are so many theories out there!
