The oldest infant mummy in history is the Detmold Child from Peru, dated through radiocarbon to be 4504-4457 B.C. It got it’s name through the discovery of 20 mummies in 2004 within the Reiss-Engelhorn Museums of Mannheim, Germany. The mummies were believed lost until someone found them by accident in a museum basement. It’s now on loan to the Lippisches Landesmuseum in Detmold, Germany where it got it’s name.

Its my basic understanding that the cause of death in this case is accompanied by various other genetic conditions which goes a long way to explaining the childs features..


On a side note...

Start the reactor. Free Mars.

Officials at the Lippe State Museum in the German city of Detmold, where the approximately 6,500-year-old mummy is on display, said scientists and heart specialists at the North Rhine Westphalia Heart and Diabetes Centre (HDZ NRW) used a high-resolution CT scanner on it. The results found that the infant was between 8 to 10 months of age at the time of death, and suffered from a very rare congenital heart malformation known as hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), a rare congenital condition in which parts of the left side of the heart do not develop completely. The condition leads to death in early infancy. Nowadays, the survival rate with modern treatment is 70 per cent.

The Delmond Child was also found to have Vitamin D deficiency, a condition known as turricephaly, which leads to an abnormal, conically-shaped skull, and a pulmonary infection caused by tuberculosis or pneumonia, which would have combined with the heart condition to cause the death of the child. The remains of the infant were radio-carbon dated to 4505-4457 BC.

Sorry to chime in off-topic. That is an interesting thread but it literally screams for embedding the pictures into the original post rather than linking to the images. Just my $0.02.

Of all the forums I post on this is the only one that I can't upload photos directly from my computer.

Oxycephaly (Turricephaly)

Detmold mummy


Starting to look like there was an epidemic of Oxycephaly (Turricephaly) back then in Peru.

Perhaps that's why they started cradle boarding, to elongate the skulls of the kids who were jealous of the kids who had the disease and the big heads

Are there still infants being born with this kind of defect and grow old?

So either it is a extinct disease...

Or its a lost race of people.

Edit: I see it is a known disease, but still the amount of elongated skulls, adults and now kids...

A vitamin D deficiency in Peru??? Ridiculous. Our body processes vit D from the sun. However perhaps this little one's body, due to it's number of congenital issues, couldn't process vit D.

But yeah I'm with those who bring up the fact that there seems to have been a race of people with elongated skulls - and therefore the vitamin D theory would be void.

Enjoyed this post JamesTB - thanks!

people forget that head binding in infants was also a common practice........

Just saying

Oh absolutely. But it usually took longer than 10 months. And based on what I've read about the skull plates usually the elongated ones in Peru are missing one fracture line that usually bonds together.

I've gone back and forth in my own mind as to whether this is a case of skull binding or some kind of genetic issue and even play with the idea that we are dealing with a different variety of human. Lots of questions


This is interesting: check out the elongated skulls from binding and then compare to the extra elongated skulls of the Peruvian skulls found. There is a huge difference. This intrigues me. www.koanicsoul.com...
Provided this link to show photos of head binding and then elongated ancient skulls

www.ancient-origins.net...
A very young child’s skull is pliant at birth, and remains in this way for months. It is therefore possible, by lashing a rope around the head, with a board placed at the back of the skull, and perhaps the front as well, to alter the shape of the head over time. Many authors state that the time period to perform this shaping was about 6 months to 3 years, but since the practice is no longer performed to my knowledge, no one really knows. Examples of this technique, supposedly last performed on infants in the Congo of Africa and the Island of Vanuatu in the south Pacific Ocean area known as Melanesia, well into the 20th century, have also been found in Egypt, during the Amarna period, Sudan, Iraq, Syria, Russia, the island of Malta, as well as many places in Peru and Bolivia, and amongst the Olmecs of Mexico. What you are capable of doing via this technique is to change the shape of the skull, but not the actual volume; you can alter the shape, but not the size. However, Tello found several skulls, at least 300 at the site called Cerro Colorado adjacent to the main graveyard in Paracas, which had cranial volume larger, and in some cases 25 percent larger (and perhaps more) than a conventional modern human skull. How is this possible? As I have said, d - See more at: www.ancient-origins.net...

nothing to see here because we have givin some name to this scientifically. That way when the name is said it gives the reader the feeling that someone has it all figured out simply because the name sounds serious. This was frauds goal with the conditions of the mind. If you question any of this you are a conspiracy theorist because you do not accept someone else's version of reality.

You're right, screw eliminating medical conditions and known practices first..........

Lets jump straight to "Aliens Did It"

That will make us objective!

I am not interested in being an object!
I was just showing how when we attach words to stuff it creates a sense of familarity that can dampen ones desire to question anything beyond a term that has been adheared to something. It gives a feeling that the ones that come up with these words are the final say as to something that happened so long ago that it is impossible to 100% know unless we get time travel back from bill and ted.

Great OP!

Does anyone know if there was any DNA testing was done in addition to CT scans and MRI's?

Those results would go a long way towards proving or disproving whether or not this baby was fully human.

Not at all one sick kid with a shaped skull/illnes and adults with shaped skulls due to cultural reasons - fairly easy to understand. If some think otherwise they are welcome to put up the money to have multiple DNA test done to scientific standards with the results released openly.

Physical anthropologist don't actually need to do that they can look at the skeleton and determines its purely human by that alone. Now could it be Homo Sapiens 'Peruvianist' - maybe and a DNA test will show that.
