A discovery of alien-like skulls has been made in Mexico, of what is believed to display the ancient Mesoamerican practice of skull binding, indicating that it was a much more common practice than previously believed.

Artificial cranial deformation, also known as head flattening or binding, is an ancient form of body alteration during which force is applied to intentionally deform the skull, resulting in alien-like skulls.

Like many forms of ancient body modifications, artificial cranial deformation was used to signify social status.

Archeologist Cristina Garcia Moreno and her research team from the Arizona State University and the National Institute of Anthropology and History discovered 13 of the 25 individuals in the ancient burial ground had skulls featuring cranial deformation, with five also appeared to have dental mutilation.

“This unique find shows a mix of traditions from different groups of northern Mexico,” Garcia Moreno said.

“The use of ornaments made from sea shells from the Gulf of California had never been found before in Sonoran territory and this discovery extends the limit of influence of Mesoamerican peoples farther north than has been previously recorded,” she added.

According to Garcia Moreno, of the 25 skeletal remains, 17 were children between the ages of five months and 16 years old, and eight were adults.

Practice of head binding has been seen in many historical cultures, including Neanderthals. The earliest written evidence of cranial deformation dates to 400 BC in Hippocrates’ description of the Macrocephali or Long-heads.
