New Elongated Skulls Found
The burial ground consists of 25 individuals; 13 have intentional cranial deformation and five also have dental mutilation, cultural practices which are similar to those of pre-Hispanic groups in southern Sinaloa and northern Nayarit, but until now, have not been seen in Sonora.
...For archaeologists, the discovery is exciting new evidence of cranial deformation, something which has not been recorded before in the Sonora cultural groups.
This was continues in my all time favorite Phantoms And Monsters with an update from Lon...
"...The archaeologist said that, “Cranial deformation in Mesoamerican cultures was used to differentiate one social group from another and for ritual purposes, while the dental mutilation in cultures such as the Nayarit was seen as a rite of passage into adolescence. This is confirmed by the findings at the Sonora cemetery where the five bodies with dental mutilation are all over 12 years in age.”
However, she continued,“In this case, you cannot recognise any social differences because all the burials seem to have the same
characteristics. Nor have we been able to determine why some were wearing ornaments and others not, or why of the 25 skeletons only one was female. “\
UPDATE: I received a response from Lloyd Pye in reference to the elongated skull photo:
That photo is a conehead. I don’t know about the others, I’d have to see their photos, but you can see the brain capacity of that one is about twice the size of a normal human, so that means it is a conehead. Obviously, mainstreamers have decided that all such heads result from deliberate deformation, but that has always been nuts because deforming a human head does not double its brain capacity. I don’t know how to get any mainstreamers to acknowledge simple reality when it comes to this, but there can be no doubt in the mind of anyone with a grain of independent thought process.
