But a few fragments I was able to sequence from this sample indicate that if these mutations will hold we are dealing with a new human-like creature, very distant from Homo sapiens, Neanderthals and Denisovans. “I am not sure it will even fit into the known evolutionary tree,” the geneticist wrote.
The result of this analysis is only phase one of many phases of analysis due to take place.
The next tests will involve having the initial test replicated, and conducted on other skulls, so that the results can be compared to see if there are any specific Paracas characteristics. Watch the video interview with Brien Foerster revealing new details about the genetic analysis.
They also contain only one parietal plate, rather than two.
The fact that the skulls’ features are not the result of cranial deformation means that the cause of the elongation is a mystery, and has been for decades. Juan Navarro, owner and director of the local museum, called the Paracas History Museum, which houses a collection of 35 of the Paracas skulls, allowed the taking of samples from 5 of the skulls.
I wonder if it would even be possible to get DNA from them that could be analyzed because they are even older than others which have been found throughout the world…interesting and I can see the connection between them and other cultures.
I recently learned that the Hittite people had two types of appearances.
Einhornhöhle, which may be translated as ‘Unicorn Cave’ in English, is a cave located in the Harz, a low mountain range in a highland area Northern Germany.
It has been pointed out that the Unicorn Cave is the largest cave in the western Harz that is open to the public.
In any event it ‘seems’ to prove that the Paracas people were not originally from South America.
It says all these people share a common ancestry that can be traced back to a single Y-chromosomal haplogroup: R1b, and this link discusses the genetic evolution and cultural spread of the R1b red headed mutation in detail: In studying the textiles of the Paracas people one of their main emblems jumped out at me as I had seen the same artwork before...a two headed bird.
A DNA analysis has now been conducted on one of the skulls and expert Brien Foerster has released preliminary information regarding these enigmatic skulls.
