Human skulls deliberately warped into strange, alien-like shapes have been unearthed in a 1,000-year-old cemetery in Mexico, researchers say.

The practice of deforming skulls of children as they grew was common in Central America, and these findings suggest the tradition spread farther north than had been thought, scientists added.

The cemetery was discovered by residents of the small Mexican village of Onavas in 1999 as they were building an irrigation canal. It is the first pre-Hispanic cemetery found in the northern Mexican state of Sonora. . . . Read Complete Report

For centuries, perhaps even millennia, people have been finding weird skulls and strange artefacts that they cannot easily explain.  These range from gold coins embedded in coal to complicated tools such as the Antikythera Mechanism.  The same is true for skull bones and there have been many discovered that challenge the perception of human evolution.  The fairly recent archaeological discovery of miniature human bones on the Indonesian Island of Flores has lead to the establishment of a new, if contentious, species of human – Homo Floresiensis.  . . .

An original Pirate of the Caribbean’s loot from the 17th century has been recovered from the ocean and will go on show

By Anthea Gerrie 31 July, 2012

The belongings of a real-life Pirate of the Caribbean have been discovered off the coast of Panama and are set to go on show for travelers keen to see how 17th-century buccaneers lived.

The pirate was Captain Henry Morgan, of rum bottle fame, a Welshman who looted throughout the Spanish Main in the 17th century before losing five ships in the West Indies.

Fritz Hanselmann, an underwater archaeologist with the River Systems Institute and the Center for Archaeological Studies at Texas State University, found swords, barrels and chests belonging to one of Morgan’s ships after a three-year search.

“Morgan was one of the most infamous privateers of all time, so this was a chance to use archaeological research to bridge the gap between science and pop culture,” Hanselmann says.

The recovery follows the discovery of six of Morgan’s cannons off the Panamanian coast in 2010. . . . Read Complete Report w/photos
