Astounding Discovery In Mexico: 13 Individuals With Elongated Skulls Stun Archaeologists, Never Seen Before In Region

Mexican experts found a cemetery a few thousand years old in the state of Sonora that has features never seen before in that region and extending the zone of influence of the Mesoamerican peoples, said archaeologists from  the Institute National Anthropology and History (INAH).

A mere 300 meters from the village of Onavas, southern Sonora, was an outdoor grave site,  the first pre-Hispanic cemetery,of that state found with  burials composed of 25 individuals, 13 of whom have intentional skull deformation, INAH said in a statement.

Five individuals with cranial deformation also have dental mutilation. These cultural practices are similar to those of pre-Hispanic groups in southern Sinaloa and northern Nayarit, but  had not been recorded in Sonora, detailed the Institute.

Some skeletons wore ornaments made from shells and snails found in the region of the Gulf of California. They were  bangles, a nose ring, earrings, pendants and necklaces of shell beads. Also, an individual was buried with a turtle shell placed at the height of the abdomen.

The INAH said that the burials were not accompanied by offerings.

For archaeologists, the discovery is relevant evidence of practices that were not recorded in the old Sonora cultural groups: cranial deformation (frontal occipital) was applied to 13 individuals, and modification by the wear of the side of teeth to give them a “V”.

“The area meets the unique finding that mixed expressions of groups of northern Mexico, as the use of ornaments made from sea shells Sea of Cortez (Gulf of California), with Western traditions never before found in Sonoran territory” , said archaeologist Cristina Garcia Moreno.

Garcia, director of the research project, which is conducted by Arizona State University, USA, with approval of the INAH Archaeology Council, said: “With this discovery extends the limit of influence of Mesoamerican peoples farther north: than had been recorded archeology” by previous archaeological finds. 

The archaeologist noted that no other archaeological site in Sonora have been found where modifications are identified  by cranial and denta mondificationsl, nor have they been seen in the southwestern United States, which shares the cultural area with Sonora.

“The closest cultural groups who developed these traditions are in northern Sinaloa and the National Wetlands area (southern Sinaloa and northern Nayarit), who incorporated their culture some Western customs and Mesoamerica,” he explained.

However, he said, “Cemetery Onavas not in migratory Mesoamerican groups, but one who had a sedentary local development and that at some point in its history established contact with Mesoamerica and incorporated some ideas into their culture.”

He explained that according to historical sources, the site must have belonged to the old Pima Indians, the region’s cultural group whose descendants moved to what is now the Sonora-Chihuahua state line, and could be part of a settlement located in the area of traffic that followed the western coastal towns in the southwest U.S. which traded in  turquoise.

“And in that transition, the Pimas adopted new traditions from Mesoamerica,” he explained, adding that the datings performed on human remains Epiclassic match the Mesoamerican period (900-1200 AD).

Finally, archaeologist Cristina Garcia noted that these findings are giving rise to further research in the southeastern part of Sonora that has been little studied, “the North, the desert, the Northeast and the coast are the most researched, from these findings it is known that the southeast is different from what was known, this side is completely new.”

      Where is the B.S.? You just linked to the same story from a not so scientific website. It just has less information. Are you purposely trying to discredit Parrish or were you personally on the dig site and know the real score? :smile:

  • AliensofAtlantis

    Let me translate “intentional skull deformation” means in English that they are humans who had skulls intentionally deformed. :grin: Aliens would not need to have their skulls deformed,would they?Then again I have the largest collection of anomalous REAL alien type skulls ever seen.Granted the are ignored by most :sad: but I guarantee that they are the finest and most abundant in variety ever that wiill be seen > i show only a few selected ones,note all facial features line up in the exact proper places.I have been collecting marine fossils for many years and can explain their (anomalous skulls)formation in detail …for now I get a kick exposing everything I please on my youube channel,about the 1st truther there AND still there to those who pay attention to such data… as well as showing my skull collection http://www.youtube.com/humanswin

    Some Native Indians Tribes traditionally used Boards front and back of Head.
    Just where that custom came from is anyone’s guess.

  • Earthmuffin33

    These skulls do not look like they were deformed intentionally, because the seams we all have in our skulls are not present in these skulls. And no amount of allteration would change them. And the skulls found in mexico have HUGE muscle attachments, much.larger then in skulls we see today. And thats taking into account the fact that their diets were much.different.
