Elongated Skulls in Mexico

Recently a Precolumbian Cemetery was excavated in Sonora (Northern Mexico) where there were found the remains of 13 individuals with deformed skulls. While there has been publishee a lot of nonsense about them, alleging they were "Nephilim" or aliens, they were in fact ordinary human beings and and peculiarities about them stemming from the fact that their heads were deformed by cradleboarding (For example the allegation was made that cradleboarding does not increase cranial capacity while on the other hand there is ample evidence that it can do so-the inside of the cranium reacts to external pressure by building up fluid inside to help cushion the brain from stress. this increases the cranial capacity but does not increase the size of the brain. Some of the sutures also fuse, so that there is some nonsensical talk about such skulls having "Only one parietal plate")

INAH archaeologists located the first pre-Hispanic cemetery in Sonora,  a thousand years old.

One of the men was buried with a turtle shell placed at the level of the abdomen.

Before going on about the "Single Parietal plate" I should pointout that the person that said the phrase was looking at a different set of skulls in a different place and had nothing to do with any of the deformed skulls found on this occasion. For an explanation, this is the parietal bone:

and there are normally a pair of them, one on either side of the head. When speaking of a "Single Parietal bone", these people mean that the medial suture at the top of the head has fused. As a matter of fact the only way these bones form is as paired bones on either side of the head, you cannot have only one of them form in the middle. Even the single frontal bone starts out as a pair of smaller bones which fuse together on the midline. In any event on the one skull illustration from this series, highlighted again at the top of this blog article, you can clearly see the outlines of the parietal bone all around its boundaries and there are clearly two parietal bones, one on either side of the head!
