While excavating near Gyeongju, the historic capital of the Silla Kingdom, researchers stumbled upon a well preserved buried skeleton of a woman around her thirties who has a irregularly long skull; known as dolichocephalic: where the head width was less than about 75 percent of its length. Most people in this area are known to be brachycephalic: their head width is at least 80 percent of the head length. An interesting find indeed.



"The skeletons are not preserved well in the soil of Korea," Shin told Live Science in an email. However, in 2013, researchers had a lucky break while excavating a grave near Gyeongju, the historic capital of the Silla Kingdom. Inside a traditional burial coffin, called a "mokgwakmyo," lay the nearly perfectly intact bones of a woman who died in her late 30s. Long head The team managed to extract the woman's mitochondrial DNA, or DNA that is passed from mother to daughter. The analysis revealed that she belonged to a genetic lineage that is present, though not common, in East Asia today. Analysis of the carbon isotopes (versions of carbon with different weights) in the skeleton also revealed that the woman was likely a strict vegetarian, in keeping with the interpretation of Buddhism that was prevalent at the time in the country. She also ate a greater percentage of her calories from foods such as rice and potatoes, versus millet or maize, the researchers reported June 1 in the journal PLOS ONE. The team was also able to reconstruct her facial features and head shape based on skull fragments. It turned out that the woman was dolichocephalic, meaning her head width was less than about 75 percent of its length. That differs somewhat from the trends in the region today, where people are more commonly brachycephalic, meaning their head width is at least 80 percent of the head length.


So, these researchers don't think this skull was purposefully elongated since it doesn't show any features or traits of having been elongated....I love a good conspiracy. I wonder what this could be? Alien? What says ATS?

Well, not long headed in the way of "elongated skulls".

-From the OP

Dolichocephalic, common in caucasians for example. From that Cromagnid and Neanderthal mixing may have influenced in part.

Though, in her case, maternal DNA presented is saying otherwise;
Her DNA is from haplogroup F1b1a:

72. AP011011(Japan)Ueno Haplogroup F1b1a

Reminds of the live action version of the Jungle Book where King Louie was said to be the last of the Gigantopithecus, a prehistoric species of ape.
