Archeologists Unearth Alien-Like Skulls In A Mexico Cemetery

[Watch Video: Alien-Like Skulls Unearthed In Mexican Cemetery]

Archeologists have unearthed what looks like a cone-shaped alien skull from 1,000 years ago in Mexico.

The skull, which dates from 945 A.D. to 1308 A.D., was discovered accidentally while digging an irrigation system in the northwest state of Sonora in Mexico.

Cristina Garcia Moreno, who worked on the project with Arizona State University, explained that 13 of the 25 skulls found in the Hispanic cemetery had these deformed heads.

“We don’t know why this population specifically deformed their heads,” Moreno told ABC News.

The site, known as El Cementerio, was discovered in 1999, but the team just completed their analysis of the skeletal remains last month. They plan to continue their research during the next field season. Archaeologists also discovered artifacts on the site, like pendants, nose rings and jewelry.

They said the deformation of human skulls was part of an ancient ritual that took place 1,000 years ago. The deformation was achieved by binding a person’s head between two blocks of wood to apply pressure on the skull by wrapping the wood with bands.

“Cranial deformation has been used by different societies in the world as a ritual practice, or for distinction of status within a group or to distinguish between social groups,” Moreno told ABC News. “The reason why these individuals at El Cementerio deformed their skulls is still unknown.”

The team said that many of the bones unearthed were the remains of children, leading them to believe the practice of deforming skulls “may have been inlet and dangerous.”

The Chinook of the U.S. Northwest and the Choctaw of the U.S. Southeast both were known for practicing skull deformation as well.

Moreno told ABC that people deformed their heads in Mexico because they wanted to distinguish important people, or they wanted to distinguish people from one group from another.

LG Optimus F5 and F7 4G phones announced ahead of MWC

LG has raised the curtain on two mid-range 4G smartphones – the Optimus F5 and the Optimus F7 – as it bids to bring the superfast network technology to the masses.

Unveiled rather unceremoniously in a press release mere days before this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) kicks off in Barcelona, the handsets are billed as increasing "LG’s 4G LTE footprint”, as it looks to fill an apparent gap in the market for keenly priced 4G phones.

Featuring some very modest specs, the smartphones are clearly intended for the scores of new and entry-level buyers who’ll be looking to get on board with the 4G revolution that’s finally kicking into gear in the UK.

Highlights of the Optimus F5 include a 4.3-inch IPS display, a 1.2GHz dual core processor and a none-too-shabby five-megapixel shooter, while the Optimus F7 rocks a 4.7-inch True HD IPS display, a 1.5GHz dual core chip and an eight-megapixel primary snapper.

Both kits offer 8GB of onboard storage (expandable by a further 32GB via microSD), the latest Jelly Bean (4.1.2) version of Android preinstalled and a host of UI features, upgraded versions of exclusive LG apps and Live Zooming, which lets users zoom into a specific area while watching a video.

“LG continues to lead the industry with 4G LTE innovation and the Optimus F Series, a well-balanced an well-equipped 4G LTE smartphone for the mass market, embodies the best of our broad LTE patent portfolio and innovative UX features,” said CEO Dr. Jong-seok Park.

“With adoption of LTE expected to explode in 2013, we are sending a clear message to con-sumers with the Optimus F Series that LTE isn’t just for heavy content users and techies anymore. It’s for everyone.”

LG is expected to officially showcase the Optimus F5 and the Optimus F7 at its press conference at MWC, where it’s also likely to reveal pricing and availability details. So stay tuned.
