Comprehensive gene analysis by evolutionary biologist Eske Willerslev in the Americas concludes there’s “no reason to believe any humans were already living in the region when the first Native Americans arrived,” writes Ancient Origins. Therefore, no outside DNA ever entered the collective gene pool.
Additionally, Willerslev’s comprehensive review of ancient genomics concluded that “original native settlers had spread across the Americas at ‘astonishing speed.'”
Thus, early humans were exploring and adapting to the harshest of environments in short order.
“We were taught in school that people would stay put until the population grew to a level where the resources were exhausted,” said Willerslev. “But we found people were spreading around the world just to explore, to discover, to have adventures.”
Furthermore, researchers found genetic evidence that suggested a link between people in Siberia with Native Americans. Thus, it confirmed a theory that “Native American ancestors resided in Siberia in the distant past.”
No Outside DNA in the Gene Pool?
Certainly, these conclusions are “astonishing,” but are they missing one example from the Americas? For example, the famous elongated skulls from Peru seem to point to outside DNA. Further, they feature anomalies that set them apart from ordinary skulls.
The Ancient Origins site also features articles about the skulls found by Peruvian archaeologist Julio Tello in 1927-28. In all, Tello found over 300 elongated skulls in the Pisco Province on the south coast of Peru.
Strange Elongated Paracas Skulls
In 2018, researcher Brian Foerster, director of the Paracas History Museum, released DNA testing results from the 3,000-year-old Paracas skulls. No one knows where the Paracas people came from, he states.
Notably, the skulls were up to 25 percent larger and 60 percent heavier than conventional human skulls. Even stranger, they had red and blond hair, which was 30% thinner than Native American hair.
Foerster discussed the elongated skulls below:
Also, some of the Paracas skulls were missing the sagittal suture, and the foramen magnum was unlike ordinary human skulls, according to Ancient Origins researcher LA Marzulli, author of Nephilim Hybrids. According to Marzullia, the Paracas skulls are the hybrid Fallen Angel/human beings mentioned in biblical texts.
Interestingly, Foerster believes the skulls were a “hybrid of different people.”
“The Nephilim, according to ancient Biblical texts, are the offspring of the Fallen Angels and the women of earth, resulting in a hybrid entity, and they said to be based in the area of the Levant, the same place that the Paracas DNA traces to,” wrote Ancient Origins.
Notably, the missing sagittal suture was mysterious since there were no signs of craniosynostosis, a disease that may fuse the suture. Also, many elongated skulls have two small curious holes on the back, with Foerster believed were possibly genetic.
“It’s possible that the holes in the back of the head are an evolutionary thing,” Foerster said. “Because the size of the skull, for proper blood flow, evolution created that,” he suggested.
Furthermore, the skulls featured a pronounced zygomatic arch (cheekbone) and “different eye sockets.”
Skulls with Alien Origins?
For decades, some people have seen the Paracas skulls as possible evidence that ancient aliens lived on Earth. However, Foerster’s analysis found the skulls were probably human.
On the other hand, he suggests the skulls were elongated due to genetics, not artificial cranial deformation or head binding, as mainstream news reports. Thus, he concluded, “We may never know” if the skulls had an alien component.
DNA Not 100 Percent Native American
At the Elongated Skulls Symposium in Los Angeles, Foerster stated:
“What it does show for sure is that the Paracas elongated skull people were not 100 percent Native American.
Certainly, this statement contrasts with the idea that there was no outside DNA in the Americas. So far, nobody can say where the Paracas people arrived or came from.
Further, the Paracas people had different blood types.
“Their blood types are very complicated as well, they should be blood type O if they’re 100 percent Native American and that’s not the case,” Foerster said.
“We are likely looking at a sub-species of humanity as regards to the Paracas. It seems to be a lot of DNA evidence from extreme eastern Europe and extreme western Asia.”
“More specifically, I’m talking about the area in between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea where ancient elongated skull people lived, I think about 3,000 years ago.”
“So I think we are looking at a migration pattern starting in the Caspian Black Sea area and then entering through the Persian Gulf and then moving eastwards eventually winding up on the coast of Peru.”
In another round of DNA testing, the most elongated skulls originated from Mesopotamia and today’s Syria.
“It rewrites history as we know it,” said Marzulli.

A Complex Early Migration to the Americas?
Possibly, the history of early migration to the Americas was earlier and much more complex than we know. As noted, it appears a few of the first Native Americans came from as far away as Europe if the Paracas skulls are considered.
Thus, even if Snopes shoots down any suggestion that the skulls were “abnormal enough to warrant further study,” their DNA remains a mysterious anomaly that’s definitely worthy of a closer look.
By looking at elongated skulls found in many places worldwide, we can learn more about ancient migrations and origins.
For example, National Geographic reported in 2019 that DNA from “Europe’s pointy skulls” pointed to evidence they originated from an area north of the Black Sea. Certainly, this seems to back up Foerster’s suggestions. Possibly the artificially elongated skulls belonged to “barbarian” groups like the Huns, a “nomadic, horse-riding confederacy.”
For the Huns, cranial deformation may have been a “way to declare one’s identity.”
But, could they have migrated into the Americas earlier than we knew?
Looking at the Whole (Strange) Picture
To either prove or disprove alien origins, it seems people with differing motives may not be open to looking at all the possibilities.
In another example, elongated skulls found at the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum in Malta have long remained “under scientific review and DNA analysis.” However, the results for the skulls (which date back 3,000 years like Paracas) never seem to be forthcoming after years of inquiry. Perhaps one day soon, we’ll find out more about what these tests concluded? Then, we can add another piece of the puzzle to the larger very strange picture.
Notably, the National Museum of Archaeology in Valletta displayed some of the skulls last year.
