Digging in the dirt can literally be like traveling back in time, especially if you know where to dig. The small town of Onavas Mexico is one such place, digging in the dirt on this occasion unearthed a very alien looking skull within a 1,000 year old cemetery.
The site known as El Cementerio was discovered in 1999 by locals digging new irrigation channels. So far 25 graves have been discovered in the cemetery, 13 of which exhibited artificial cranial deformation.
While most of the skulls appeared to be very human in appearance, with round eye sockets and normal jaw, one skull appeared a little different. Along with the deformed skull the eye socket, cheek and nose aren’t particularly normal in appearance. Combine all of these slightly unusual characteristics with the cone head shape and you have one very alien appearing skull, more than a little creepy looking.
