    Human skulls intentionally transformed into strange, alien-like shapes have been found in a 1,000-year-old cemetery in Mexico.
    The ritual of deforming skulls of children was common in Central America, and these diggings propose the tradition reached out farther north than had been believed.

    Apparently there were 25 burials, 17 were children between 5 months and 16 years old.

    I know they're human but they look so creepy as fuck. Better call Indiana Jones to investigate.

    Yeah I love reading about that stuff.

    Wikipedia is like a time trap.

    You look up one thing and than you end up clicking on link after link.

    That's insane, it's gotta be a hoax. Xenomorphs cannot be real.

    I'm also curious to why they would deform the skulls. Most cultures are really sensitive to how the bodies of their dead loved ones are handled. This practice seems counter-intuitive to human nature. I'm guessing they must be some kind of sacrifice. or perhaps it was punishment to the parents for some (real or perceived) sleight. Maybe these children died of disease and they thought they needed to make some gesture toward the gods.

    *Edit*
    Ah, read the rest of the article. They weren't sick, but no answer on the deformation. Weird shit.
