Alien skulls in Mexico

Archeological Discoveries

Human skulls deliberately warped into strange, alien-like shapes have been excavated in a 1,000-year-old cemetery in Mexico. The cemetery was discovered by residents of the small Mexican village of Onavas in 1999 as they were building an irrigation canal. The site contained the remains of 25 human burials. Thirteen of them had deformed skulls which were elongate and pointy at the back and five had mutilated teeth.
