Okay, thanks to TIVO and a slow home office day, here is the (veeery loose) transcription from 'The Unexplained Files" show on the "Science"
Skull and partial skeleton, found in 2011 on mtn used for sacrificial burials near Cuzco, Peru, by the local museum curator (Sounds like Renato
Mercalda) while on a dig. Dated to mid 13 century.
Body of a child with out-of-proportion head... 20 inches long (head apprx 10 ", body approx 10 ") both legs and 1 arm are missing (10" body is w/o
Called "Rirvision (sp?) Skeleton" (phonetic guess as to name... same as the nearby burial mountain).
Theo Paredes, a "renowned" anthropologist from Cuzco, investigates. Takes body to Dr. Alcides Vargas, a clinic director, who verifies real bone,
real mummified soft tissue and real age to it... and it's really weird.
Big cone shaped cranium, protruding eyes w/shallow sockets... small nasal septum (flat little nose)... fontenelle not totally closed leads to guess as
to age of approx 1 year... with max age 2 yr.
Tentative diagnosis barring Carbon dating and MRI/x-rays... no obvious head binding signs/marks... so child w uncommon hydrocephalus, in that there is
nearly no widening, just a lengthening. Strange in that most sacrifices were of "perfect" children to "please the gods."
After x-rays, there is no sign of thinning skull and indentation common to all previous hydrocephalic specimens they know of... Dr. Erick Flores,
radiologist, says... puzzler. No sign of other disease or pathology... cause of death blunt force trauma, fracture to lower left anterior of skull
common to other sacrificial victims.
Cranial deformation, head binding, is then examined.
After a CT scan the volume/brain capacity is put at 169 cms... 50% more volume than an average 2 yr old. No signs of head binding w/ boards, wrapping.
Brien Foerster is interviewed... says he believes approx 5% of elongated skulls in Peru are ... unknowns, blah, blah, ET... or other human branches...
Denovian, "Hobbts" .
Carbon dating place the body in question as dying in the 13th century.
DNA mitochondrial dna says mom is human... dad's cannot be id'd ... it just defies classification. Hypothesize it's a "hybrid."
Goes on to interview local shaman who relate tale of strange humans coming out of a hole in the sky centuries ago, describe these strangers as having
elongated heads. Talks about that mtn "geoglyph" of an elongated headed human (rolls eyes). Aliens who came and gave Peruvians culture (and
Goes on to Baltic Sea thingy... so dunno, but there it is.
